Full And Fruitful:
Is It Impossible to Live the Christian Life?

Have you ever felt it was impossible to live the Christian life?

That’s because it is when we try to live it in our own power. Jesus said plainly in John 15:5, “…apart from Me you can do nothing.” At the same time, Jesus made clear to His followers that He wants them to live a life full of love, joy, and spiritual fruit. When Jesus left His disciples for heaven, He did not leave them alone to simply do the best they could in their own power. He sent a Helper to come and be with them…to be with us. The Helper makes all the difference in our Christian experience. If you want more joy, more spiritual power, and more consistency in your spiritual growth, you won’t want to miss this message!

Eddie and Jessica Cole

Our lead pastors, Eddie and Jessica Cole have had a heart for Hampton Roads for many years.  While dating – more than 25 years ago! – they were visiting Jessica’s parents in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake and started dreaming about planting a church in the area. 

It wasn’t until 2020, while Eddie was serving as a denominational Vice President in Minneapolis, that it became clear God was calling them to take a big leap of faith.  They had helped others plant churches for years – now God began to confirm it was their turn. Within months they knew the time had arrived, they were supposed to plant the church they dreamed about in Hampton Roads. 

Throughout their entire relationship, they have been doing ministry together. Most of this time was spent leading Salem Church in Staten Island, New York, and doing regional and national denominational work. 

They are known for their passion for helping people experience the love and power of God. They have committed themselves to use all their God-given resources to help as many people as possible joyfully embrace and fulfill God’s purpose in their life. 

Eddie earned a Doctorate in Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary and has two Master’s Degrees from Liberty Theological Seminary. Jessica is a graduate of Gateway Theological Institute and has a Bachelor of Science in Religion from Liberty University, as well as a Master’s Degree in Executive Leadership from the Liberty University School of Business.
