Our History

In March 2004, during the annual District Meeting of the then Central District of the Greater Maryland First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God In Christ, the Lord called the then Deacon Solomon Iyobosa Omo-Osagie II into the Gospel ministry. He received his ministerial license from his pastor, teacher, and mentor, the Rev. Dr. Stafford B. Sutton, Sr. in September 2004. In November of the same year, he made his pilgrimage to Memphis, Tennessee, the spiritual home of the Church of God In Christ where he had a transformational encounter at the Prayer Room in the Mason Temple. It was in the Prayer Room after much praying, tarrying, weeping, and supplication to the Lord that he received the gift of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gave him utterance.

In August of 2006 and after undergoing a series of structured coursework and formal and informal training under his pastor, he was recommended by his pastor and ordained an Elder by the late Bishop David Washington Spann, Sr., then Prelate of the Greater Maryland First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God In Christ. In May of 2008, and at the leading of the Holy Spirit, Elder Omo-Osagie founded the Impact Pentecostal Fellowship COGIC with twenty (20) members and located to Eastern Baltimore County, Maryland where he serves as the Founding Pastor. The Lord gave Elder Omo-Osagie a divine charge to gather the people to fellowship and depart to Impact! Since its founding, the Church has experienced and continues to experience growth as souls are being added to the Church in increasing numbers!!

The history of the Impact Church was inspired by the New Testament account of the day of Pentecost where believers were gathered in one place. After receiving the power that was promised from on High, they were to go out and then make an Impact on the world with the Word. The Church believes in the Power that was spoken about in Acts 2:1-4. This Power was intended to Impact and transform the lives and hearts of God's people.

The Impact Church has been carrying out the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:16-20. It was a charge to spread the Good News about His authority both in the heavens and the earth. The disciples were to go and "make disciples" of people everywhere. A disciple is a follower. We are then to go out and bring others to follow Him. The Impact Church is a church that has accepted and embraced the Charge to go out into the world and bring souls into the kingdom of God. In the Church's history, it has adopted a non-judgmental and non-condemnation stance and instead accepts the fact that "all sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) and that we are all "pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14). It is through constant prayer and supplications to the Lord that we can fight and prevail over the temptations of this world. However, the Impact Church still believes that somethings are right and somethings are wrong.

Since its founding, the Impact Church family shares a common passion for seeking and knowing Jesus Christ for ourselves so that we would be ready to meet Him upon His return to take the Saints back to Heaven. We do this through pointed and practical teaching and preaching of the Word by our very dedicated, dynamic, prayerful, anointed, visionary, and humble man of God, the Reverend Dr. Omo-Osagie.

The Impact Church is progressive but grounded in traditional Pentecostal Holiness values as taught and written about in the Holy Bible. The believers are genuinely devoted to making a lasting Impact on the lives of people through the Word and our lifestyles that showcase faith, God's glory, grace, peace, and mercy on those who diligently seek Him. The Impact Church family does not profess to have exclusive right to salvation. Rather, the Church believes that salvation comes from Jesus Christ by faith and therefore looks to Him for our salvation (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11). This same salvation is available to those who ask for it.

The history of the Impact Church is steeped in sound teaching, service and outreach to the community, the needy, and the poor. The Church has been, and continues to be involved in numerous voluntary services, clothing giveaways, community fairs, individual and family assistance, educational supplies, community empowerment, financial literacy workshops, consumer credit counseling, housing counseling, among other services to the community. The Impact Church has also been making an Impact in the community through its Impact Radio Broadcast, which aired for an entire year every Sunday at 9:00pm on the Spirit 1400 AM station from December 2010 to January 2012. Many souls have been saved and families have been re-connected through this powerful outreach broadcast.

The Impact Church continues to cross cultural and ethnic boundaries to reach out to souls everywhere and empowering them with the Word of God. The Impact Church is a Church on a mission to Impact the world with the Word! The Impact Church is one founded on Prayer, Tarrying, Supplications to the Lord, and Walking by Faith!

The Lord blessed our Founder/Pastor to branch out beyond the borders of the United States of America. In 2014, our leader founded the Impact Pentecostal Fellowship – Kenya (IPF-Kenya) in East Africa. He co-labors with some 20 pastors and churches and serves as the Overseer. The powerful purpose and mission of the Impact Church is now being felt and manifested in Western Kenya, where souls are being saved and towns and villages are coming to the Lord. Men and women are experiencing Divine miracles and the Spirit of God is moving in and through the IPF-Kenya pastors.

Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.

We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ at His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance, faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ and being baptized in water.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing in prayer.

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Holy and separated life in this present world,

Amen
