Our Church History
From the Heart Church Ministries of Las Vegas was birthed as a result of the Reformation teaching of Dr.John A. Cherry. In April 2005, a Sovereign God impressed upon the heart of Pastor McDuel to submit the church he was pastoring to Dr. Cherry’s authority. To this end, Pastor McDuel wrote a letter to Dr. Cherry in August of the same year requesting to meet with him.
In September of 2005 Pastor McDuel received a response from Dr. Cherry’s office inviting him to attend a meeting of the Macedonian Pastors to be held in North Carolina in November. Pastor McDuel attended this meeting and got an opportunity to talk with Dr. Cherry. After a series of pastoral meetings and examination, Dr. Cherry held his first service here on February 12, 2006 to a crowd of over 200 people. It was at this meeting that Dr.Cherry decreed and declared that this was the beginning of this city being changed from the City of Sin to “Excellence of Ministry- the City of Grace” because “where sin abounded grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20b).
On April 30, 2006, Dr. Cherry taught the first New Members Orientation class and over 120 people joined the church that day. The members completed the Perfecting Classes and Dr. Cherry consecrated their gifts on May16, 2006. On September 17, 2006, Dr. Cherry announced that it was time to establish a local church in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Sunday, November 5, 2006, Pastor McDuel was installed as pastor of From the Heart Church Ministries of Las Vegas. The membership continues to grow and we look forward to being a bright light in the community as we carry out the vision to love God, hate sin and love to give. To God be the Glory.
