The Pioneer Toolbox will help you in your Pioneer Struggles

We hope the Pioneer Toolbox will be a resourceful toolbox for pioneers across America and around the globe. We take interviews from Pioneers in the Holiness Movement and give resources for new ‘starting-up’ churches. We all have gone through the struggles as pioneers, so for the new generation coming up, they can hear how others have pulled through it while also getting good counsel of what to avoid and what to look for.

Pioneer Interviews

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

This church is not about gimmicks, schemes and flashy entertainment.

We are a Holiness Church located in Martinsville, Va.   In general the Martinsville Church of Truth is part of the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ, composed of all true believers. In particular, the church identifies with that branch of Christianity having its roots in the Holiness-Pentecostal movement, and more especially, with that segment which retains the proper emphasis on separation from the world and victory over sin, both inward and outward.
