Published 12:00 am Tuesday, October 25, 2005

Liberty Christian Church is a non-denominational fellowship that welcomes 150 members to its services each week.

The church is pastored by Theoangelo Perkins who has been ministering there for five years.

Liberty was founded on March 2, 2003, in Harpersville. Since then it has flourished and now offers a wide array of activities for its members and the community to be a part of. Some of these activities include youth Bible studies on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m.; church wide Bible studies on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m.; and a &8220;Women of Destiny&8221; ministry on the second Friday of each month at 7 p.m.

Perkins is a graduate of Vincent High School and the University of Alabama where he received his bachelor’s degree in english and history.

He is also a member of Evangel Temple Church in Harpersville and serves as the current mayor of the town of Harpersville.

Perkins served on the Harpersville City Council for five years before becoming mayor, and he is the first-ever black mayor in Shelby County.

Perkins said his church strives to show people the way to God.

&uot;We are preaching God’s word, teaching God’s way and reaching God’s people,&uot; Perkins said. &uot;We are a church that loves God, his word and one another. We are standing fast in the liberty by which Christ made us free.&8221;

Perkins said Liberty strives to stay involved in the local community through a number of ministries including a &uot;Bread Ministry,&uot; in which bread is given to those in need each week, and prison and outreach ministries.
