Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Edward J. Barnes was born in Arkansas and later relocated to Hawthorn, California with his job  as a journeyman lineman where he worked for 28 yrs with Edison International.  Elder Barnes was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost in 1975.

Pastor Barnes was given a vision about the name Healing Faith.  Shortly after moving to Texas Pastor Barnes served as Assistant Pastor to Pastor Myrtle Coleman Williams of Rehoboth Tabernacle Apostolic Church in South Dallas.  He served with her until her departure in 2004 and this is where the vision was made manifest and Pastor Edward J Barnes founded the Healing Faith Apostolic Church ("HFAC").

Pastor Barnes began his ministry and suffered many hard times and tragedies in the ministry people came and people left but he continued to do the work of the Lord.  Then life took a turn but by the grace and mercy of the Lord he was able to continue in the ministry.
