Sacred Fire Church is located in Belleview, Florida. We transpire to be a place of healing, restoration; heartfelt worship and prayer where God’s glory and presence are reflected in and among us. A church reaching across cultural and denominational boundaries to minister the radical love of God to a fallen generation, we are seeking the face of our amazing Creator and Lord, expecting a mighty revival to break forth within our community.
Sacred Fire Church is a special church. In fact, it is much more than a church. Although it isn’t a small church, it still radiates the true "family feel" that it has had from its beginning. “Because we live so far from physical family,” says Pastor Shannon Marshall, “the church is our family. The church family more than makes up for the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents my family needs. We don’t just do ministry together. We do life together.”
Many people have come to Sacred Fire and, upon their first visit, known simply that they were loved and accepted. At Sacred Fire, we have incredible diversity—the wealthy and the poor, the businessman and the drug addict, the young and the old, and different races—all worshiping their common Creator together and growing in love and life. We’re only missing one more component–you. Come on in…your family is waiting on you!

A Word from Pastor Terry Reilly
Dear Sacred Fire Church,
Debby & I are extremely humbled by your support and prayers. We want to thank the following committees for their diligent work for the Lord and the church: the finance & search committees did an excellent job, and the church board continues to offer wisdom from God with their leadership. We want to thank everyone for your patience through this process. We are expecting new things from God. Our special thanks for two special leaders, with much love, respect, and appreciation goes to out to your former Pastor's memory--Pastor Keith. His legacy will continue in all our hearts as we go forward in serving the Lord.
Pastor Shannon has taken the leadership mantle from Pastor Keith and the Lord and has moved forward with unstoppable faith, courage, and obedience with her leadership. I am honored to work side by side with her as we go forward in equipping the church in ministry, and to collectively reach Belleview and the surrounding cities for Christ.
I love to read books beside the Bible. I love history that formed our nation through the sacrifice and faith of our forefathers. I am reflecting today about what General George Washington told his troops right before the battle of Long Island. He reminded them who their fighting for. It wasn't for freedom for the first generation Americans, but for the millions yet unborn Americans who would learn about faith in God, and how sacrifice and hard work made our country.
Abraham Lincoln, 150 years later, carried the baton of faith and freedom to get the 13th Amendment passed. It would abolish slavery in our country, and proclaim that God made every man equal. This set the tone for men and women to be free and run after God with their faith and dreams. Washington and Lincoln had their eyes on the 3rd and 4th generations. History continued through King David and his mighty men as they reach their generation, and the generations to follow.
My heart through the Holy Spirit's guidance is for us to prepare our children in the church for future leadership and equip them to reach their generation for Christ. It's not just our children that need to be reached, but all generations that we live with. If we join our hearts together in unity and are led by the Spirit and not the flesh, we can reach our generation for Christ, and if Jesus tarries, we know that many other generations will come to know our Savior through our labor of love, prayers, and example of Christianity.
Psalm 78:4-7 says, "We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord; his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statues for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet not born, and they will in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands."
