About True Deliverance Ministries
To demonstrate God’s Love by reaching the lost, teaching and preaching God’s Word, and empowering youth and families to live an abundant life
To change the world through the power of God’s love and to touch lives through outreach ministries
True Deliverance Church of God Ministries was established November 12, 1967, founded by the late Apostle Albert Venson. Apostle Venson had churches in Detroit, Washington DC and Maryland. Apostle Venson built a new church in Bealeton with no pastor to start the church. In January 1996 he asked his son-in-law and daughter to start a church in Bealeton, Virginia. In May 1997, Pastor T. Tyronne and First Lady Felicia Champion accepted the call and began to pastor the True Deliverance Church of God, Bealeton with one member.
The church has grown over the years and has been a blessing to the community. Pastor and First Lady Champion saw a need in their community to help those who had been affected by the challenges of life. Along with True Deliverance members they birthed several outreach ministries including a forty bed homeless shelter, a food pantry, a furniture outreach facility and a thrift store. True Deliverance is a multicultural non-denominational spirit filled church; called to love people, empower believers to live an abundant life and to train Christians to lead souls to Christ.
True Deliverance believes in teaching and preaching of the word of God that is able to change the soul of men and women. We believe in strong marriages and families which builds a strong church. We believe in training our youth to have a personal relationship with God and to have and to have a positive influence in the world today.

The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Bible is God’s inspired word to his people. It is infallible and holds the answer to every man’s problems and situation. (John 5:39, 1 Tim. 3:16)
We believe that there is one God eternal, existing in three persons – the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one in unity. (Matthew 28:18-19, Mark 12:29, John 1:14, Acts 5:3-4, II Cor. 12:14, Heb. 1:1-3)
We believe all have sinned. The penalty of Sin is death and no degree of works or good behavior can provide the sinners a new life. You must be born again and repent of all sin to become a son or daughter of God. The Penalty has been paid by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was made sin for us by dying on the cross in our stead. (Rom. 3:23, Rom. 6:23)
- Repent (Acts 3:19)
- Confess (1 John 1:9)
- Forsake (Isaiah 55:7)
- Believe (Rom. 10:9, Acts 16:31)
- Accept (John 1:12)
We believe in divine healing for the whole man through the atoning death of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matt. 8:17, Acts 4:30, 19:11, 1 Cor. 12:9, James 5:14)
We believe that the second coming of Christ is the fulfillment of prophecy. The Lord will receive unto Himself the Church, both those who are living and those who died in Him and we shall forever be with the Lord.
