About

FULLY-ENGAGED CHURCH PHILOSOPHY

Many years ago, God gave me a vision that stayed with me: “I didn’t call you to grow your church; I called you to expand My Kingdom.” That was freeing for me. I would no longer focus on numbers and the mechanics of the Sunday morning services. My attention was on growing fully-engaged Christians, disciples who are committed to becoming who God designed them to be. It worked. They grew stronger in the Lord, became a blessing to those around them, felt fulfilled in their work, and frequently shared this with others. I want to share that with you.

ABOUT JIM WATSON

Jim Watson is an experienced Pastor with passion and enthusiasm for outreach, evangelism, missions, displeship and ministry to men. He is a gifted leader, connector, and pioneer with a relationship-based approach. Over his 20+ years in ministry, he has demonstrated results in bringing people into a personal relationship with Jesus as well as developing Christians to higher levels of maturity, responsibility, and leadership. Pastor Jim is excited about fulfilling the Lord’s work in the community and church, helping people realize their value, and fostering a tangible demonstration of faith and experience in Jesus Christ so they can affect the people around them. He has a special concern for partnering with Pastors so each one can feel fulfilled and experience a full-engaged church.

Over 20 years ago, Jim started pastoring in the established church. From there, God called him to plant Twin Rivers Community Church (TRCC) which then branched out to plant Broken Chains Biker Church and then a network of house churches.

TRCC was heavily involved in town events and Jim became part of the Downtown Associates of North Attleboro (downtown business association in town) where he became the president. He had more volunteers than he could possibly use at the many events TRCC was involved with yearly (community events and church events). Over 90% of the people tithed. Everyone in the church evangelized. He also effectively mentored, developed and trained men who became pastors/facilitators of the planted church and house churches.

Jim currently lives with his wife, Kristin, in Florida where he enjoys meeting to encourage pastors, golfing to make new connections, and exercising in the tropics he now calls home after living most of his life in Massachusetts. He is the proud father of three grown men who live in various locations on the East Coast.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

God is the creator of all, and is, and has always been. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one God. Jesus Christ is the only Son of God the Father. Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  The Holy Spirit is called the Counselor and is sent by the Father and the Son to Jesus’ followers. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.

We believe the Bible to be the written word of God, that is, full and complete in the sixty-six books of the Bible. We believe that the Bible is inspired in every word, and that the original manuscript is without error, authoritative, and God-breathed. We believe the Bible is the only infallible rule of faith, worship, and practice.
