Meet Our Senior Pastor


Pastor Myra E. Parris was born and raised in Washington, DC, where she met and eventually married Gregory L. Parris in 1987. She worked  side-by-side with her husband, Bishop Gregory Parris  in worship and in ministry in the District of Columbia, Tennessee, Florida and New York. After working in the insurance industry for 25 years, Pastor Myra chose to join her husband in full-time ministry at COLFC. Pastor Myra now serves as senior pastor.

She is admired by many for her quiet strength, tenacity, and great faith. Her gifted and loving hands have skillfully touched such ministries as the Children’s, Women’s, and the Fine Arts.In addition to serving as senior pastor she takes the time to teach women studies at COLFC. Her most recent classes include:

God uses her to reach the hearts of others and to usher them into His presence. Pastor Myra is the proud mother of three children. Her love of music has also touched her children's lives. All three children are actively engaged in the Worship Ministries.

What We Believe

Church of Love Faith Center was formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are a non-denominational church, but not opposed to denominations as such.

Christian Worship
… worship that reflects brotherly  love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
Spiritual worship
…worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
Inspirational worship

…worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.

Intelligent worship

…worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.

Fruitful worship

… worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshiping Him.

Word of God

We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

We believe that God is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Creator of All Things

We believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.

Salvation, Redemption, and Forgiveness

We believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that Salvation, Redemption, and Forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today.

Teach the Word of God

We seek to teach the Word of God in such a way that its message can be applied to an individual’s life, leading that person to greater maturity in Christ.

Personal Relationship with God

In our services, we focus on a personal relationship with God through worship, prayer, and the teaching of the Word of God. We provide direction as well as relevant teaching.
