In 2003, Shaun and Tammi left everything to begin a journey that would cause them to pursue God’s heart. They married in 2004 and since that time have served in many capacities of ministry including outreach, church planting, youth pastoring, and associate pastoring. Now God has placed it in their hearts to plant Spirit Road Church, located in Norwich, Connecticut. They live to see people become fully alive to the realities of God, ultimately walking freely in the calling they were created for. Shaun and Tammi have been blessed with six children Aleia, Nathanael, Trinity, Josiah, Addison and Sebastian.

Mark 16:17-18, Luke 10:27; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Psalm 119:74, Galatians 5:22-23 and Ephesians 4:12
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible is the revealed will of God, and only authority in design, rule, and plan for mankind’s faith, conduct and standard of living daily life.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father
God, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, He hears and answers prayer, He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
John 3:16-17, John 4:24, John 17:5
In the divine and eternal Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten son who was conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He was crucified on the cross and died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice, buried, and raised from the dead on the third day. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father interceding for His people.
Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 24:46 and Romans 8:34
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father to receive power, and His indwelling is available to all believers. The Spirit desires to empower believers for witness and effective service. The initial evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is accompanied by speaking in other tongues (unknown prayer language).
Luke 24:49, John 14:15-18 and Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-4, 19:6
That all men are, by nature, sinners, destitute of all power to save themselves. That salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone and in Christ alone. And all who receive, repent, and trust in Him to be their personal Savior are redeemed, justified, and regenerated because of His shed blood, restoring fellowship with God.
Romans 6:23, 10:8-13 and Ephesians 2:8-9
Baptism & Communion
Water Baptism by Immersion. Any who have repented, and believed in Christ as Saviour and Lord should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. This ordinance is an outward sign of an inward work. We also practice the Lords Supper (Communion) with the elements of bread (His body which was broken for us) and grape juice (His blood which was shed for us) are taken in remembrance of Jesus sacrifice on the Cross.
Matthew 28:19 and 1 Corinthians 11:17-30
The Church is a representative of Jesus on earth and has been given a mandate to proclaim the gospel to all the world and to seek and to save all who are lost in sin. God has called and ordained individuals for leadership, and to serve the Church.
Matthew 10:6-15, 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16, Luke 4:18-19, Ephesians 4:11-16 and 2 Peter 3:9
