Settled in the heart of the Midtown district, Crimson House is just one block south of historic C-Street and is within easy walking distance of both Drury and Evangel Universities.
CURRENT WEEKLY SERVICES
Sunday mornings and Monday evenings see services in the building, while small groups meet at a variety of locations in the community Tuesday through Saturday. A current listing of these groups will be available soon.
In addition, a collection of other support, recovery, and discipleship small groups meet at Crimson House throughout the week, some on a daily basis.

OUR CORE VALUES
OUR CORE PRACTICES
OUR STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
Crimson House takes the whole Bible rightly-divided with the New Testament as our rule of faith, government, practice, and discipline. The following beliefs are foundational to our faith.
The Inspired Word of God
(2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
The Bible is inspired of God, is infallible and inerrant, and is given to man as his guide for living.
One God in Three Persons
(Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10,11, Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22)
In one God, eternally existing in three persons, namely God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Deity of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35. Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22)
That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, raised from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is now at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.
The Born Again Experience
(John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 John 3:9)
That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and is necessary for the forgiveness of sin. That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are brought about by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
(Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33)
In the two ordinances of a) water baptism by immersion—all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; b) In the Lord’s Supper.
A Holy Lifestyle
(Luke 1:74, 75; 1 Thessalonians 4:7; Hebrews 12:14)
Sanctification is subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word of God; and by the Holy Spirit. Holiness is to be the standard of living for His people.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
(Acts 1:8, 2:4, 2:39; Luke 24:49)
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to lead lives of holiness and to be witnesses of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. We believe the initial evidence of this baptism is speaking in other tongues as documented in the early church.
(Matthew 8:17; James 5:14-16; 1 Peter 2:24)
Divine healing of man’s emotional, spiritual, and physical being is provided for all in the atonement.
The Blessed Hope
(1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)
In the premillennial second coming of Jesus: First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth one thousand years. In the bodily resurrection–eternal life for the righteous; eternal punishment for the wicked.
Pastor John Pace accepted Christ in 1981 and has spent the past 30 years in full-time ministry. His efforts in serving the Lord in denominational leadership with the Church of God of Prophecy (Cleveland, TN) took him to over 40 states and 40 countries around the world. Still, there is no place he would rather be than in the presence of the Lord and at Crimson House.
As the founding Pastor of Crimson House in 2001, Pastor John transplanted a fledgling local church on the outskirts of town into the heart of historic Springfield. It has now become a lively urban ministry center, with an active local body offering assistance and programs to over 750 non-congregants each month. His anointing to show people the love of Jesus and his laid-back teaching style create a culture of discipleship and belonging. One of his greatest rewards is to hear someone call Crimson House “home.”
Pastor John attended Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife, Diane, their seven beautiful children, and three precious grandchildren.
