    8. When necessary, disciplining one another (Matthew 18:15-17),
    9. Bearing one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2),

    12. Maintaining unity with one another (Ephesians 4:3)
    13. Obeying God’s word (John 14:23)
    14. Meeting together regularly for fellowship and the breaking of bread (Hebrews 10:25, Acts 2:42), Contributing financially to the church (II Corinthians 8:1-5,9-7) and the relief of the poor (Galatians 2:10), and Submitting to our leaders (Hebrews 13:17)
  • As a Congregation We Commit To:
    1. Love those outside the church (Luke 10:27-37) by evangelizing (Matthew 28:19-20)
    2. Also, love other churches (Acts 11:22-30):
    3. Resolving to be joined in fellowship with other churches in the Baltimore area and the surrounding areas as the Lord is leading us. We as a church commit to uphold the other churches in our immediate fellowship.
  • As Individuals In our Personal Lives We Commit To:
    1. Love God (1 John 4:19) by:
    2. Having personal and family Bible study, worship and prayer (Dt.6:4-9)
    3. Being a witness for Christ to friends, family and acquaintances (Acts 1:8)
    4. Walking righteously (proverbs 4:23-27), being exemplary in our behavior (1 Peter 2:12), and avoiding the appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22)
  • The Bible
    God is the Author
    The Bible was written by men inspired by the living God to write the things they did. Because it was inspired by God Himself, the Bible is the Word of God and therefore becomes THE ultimate AUTHORITY in everything that we do. The accuracy, wisdom and knowledge in it prove beyond reasonable doubt that God had to do with those writings.
  • Trinity
    Three persons in God
    We believe that God is one but has three persons in him. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are one and operate all things in all! The easiest thing that can explain this reality is our own being that is composed of a body, a soul, and a spirit that are all equal yet separated.
  • God the Father
  • God the Son
  • God the Holy Spirit
  • Salvation
    Only ONE SAVES

    The Bible is clear: “And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 AMP). We believe that a man or woman comes to salvation by accepting to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior in their heart! Salvation is by grace only and not by merit, so no one can boast about it! (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • Man
  • Church
  • Eternity (Sin)

Ville de Refuge Ministries and Church started in October 2012 with the organization of a three days conference entitled ”Understanding and Breaking the Curse”, inside the Baltimore City Hall. Since then, the church has gone through a rocky period of trials and tests, but also great and interesting moments. In fact the church has moved from the Mount Vernon Hotel in Downtown Baltimore, to a location in Rosedale, MD and is now in the City of Baltimore on Erdman Avenue, inside the Bilingual Christian Center building.

The church has had in 2013 many events that confirmed its presence in the area such as the summer barbeque, the feast of Tabernacle celebration, the December concert, a couple of all-night prayers, to name a few. Many more are coming this year 2014 such as the Dennis Ngonde night of worship, and our upcoming night of prayer for the Congo, and the August Convention of Worship! We are excited about what God is doing and can’t wait to see how far He will take us and stretch us!

Our Four Fold Pledge (Our Four “Ts”)
  • Pledge of Time: Pledge to dedicate our time to attend and participate to church matters and activities.
  • Pledge of Treasure: Pledge to support financially the church in any and all undertaking as needed to advance the kingdom of God and its causes at all times.
  • Pledge of Talent: Pledge to help, in the best of our ability, the church in any spiritual, moral, and intellectual capacity we possess to advance the church and therefore, kingdom of God!
  • Pledge of Teaching: Pledge to pursue, embrace and adhere to all the biblically sound teachings offered by the church to ensure proper growth and maturity in Christ.
Meet Our Pastor

Born out of a family of seven children, Pastor Serge Senga is the third and has always been very inquisitive and open minded. He would first open his heart to invite the Lord Jesus in 1984, but it wasn’t until the summer of 1991 that he would definitely give his life and commit to serve the Lord. He immediately joined the Youth movement of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International in the city of Moanda, DRC. This is where the Lord would use people that would start training and teaching him, as he was leading a youth chapter of the FGBMFI in Moanda first, and then Kinshasa, DRC. He would travel to the US where he would work as a worship leader, then elder and finally Pastor at Jerusalem Charismatic Community under the leadership of Bishop Alliance Tshiovo.

Ordained as Pastor in October 2011, Pastor Serge Senga is now Senior Pastor of Ville de Refuge Ministries and Church in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland since October 2012. He and his wife Nadine are miraculous parents (you will understand in their testimony why) and have a son Elikya and a daughter Annayah.
