Rod & Val Palmer

Pastors Rod and Val Palmer have been married since 1981 and have 3 grown up children. They were born in Zimbabwe, helped with a church plant in the capital city of Harare for 5 years and served as Assistant Pastors at “Valley Christian Church” in Cape Town, South Africa for seventeen years. In 2004, God called them to start a church in Flagler Beach.

Pastor Rod has been described as having a true “Pastors heart.” Rod’s desire is for all to know that they are loved, accepted and important, and to see people walk in His fullness in every area of their lives. He is passionate and dedicated to see families restored – natural and spiritual. Val is passionate about living a lifestyle of worship and helping young people know God, have a personal intimate relationship with Jesus and live their lives well. She is also passionate about woman fulfilling their purpose in the Kingdom of God. Together they have a heart to parent this generation and the next into their purpose and destiny.

Over the few years the church has moved through 3 different venues, the 4th taking us back to our original venue. We have had many successes and failures, learning the will and the ways of God. Through the years, God has built this family by establishing Godly values and principles in order to advance the Kingdom and to be relevant in society by touching the felt need of our community.

We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we love God, build His family and advance His Kingdom!

Coastal Family Church meets every Sunday morning at 10am

  • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that they constitute our Divine Rule of Christian faith and practice.

    2 Peter 1:20-21knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
    2 Timothy 3:15-17 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

  • We believe there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper Object of Worship.
    Deuteronomy 32:6 ; Colossians 1:15-17 ; Matthew 4:10 .

  • We believe there are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, undivided in essence, and co-equal in power and glory.
    Matthew 28:19 ; 1 John 5:7-8

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was God made manifest in the flesh, truly and properly God, and truly and properly man, and that He, by His suffering and death, made atonement for sin and that, by His resurrection, there is eternal life for all who believe.
    Hebrews 2:10 , Hebrews 7:27 ; 1 Corinthians 15:16-17

  • We believe that since the fall of our first parents, man is entirely unable, in his own strength, to find salvation and reconciliation with God, and that he is wholly dependent upon God’s grace and mercy.
    Romans 5:12-14 ; Ephesians 2:8

  • We believe that salvation, by God’s grace, depends upon repentance, faith in God, cleansing by the shed blood of Jesus, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
    Romans 3:22-26 , Romans 5:8 ; Romans 8:9-11 ; Acts 4:12 ; Ephesians 2:8

  • We believe that baptism in water is a personal and dynamic meeting with God, and a sign of the believer’s death, burial and resurrection in Jesus Christ.
    Matthew 28:19 ; Acts 2:38 ; Romans 6:3-4

  • We believe it is the privilege of all believers, in response to the command of God’s Word, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live holy and victorious lives, and that the Holy Spirit operates through gifts, ministries and manifestations, to glorify Jesus, through His Body, to the world.
    Acts 2:37-39 ; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

  • We believe that Jesus Christ, at the time of His ascension into Heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, gifted the Church with living ministry expressions of Himself, through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the building up of the Body of Christ, and the equipping of the believers to the work of service.
    Ephesians 4:11-13

  • We believe that neither ritual, tradition, ceremony nor rite can replace conversion, relationship with God, or true worship, and that nothing less than the Lordship of Christ upon a life, is the mark of a Christian.
    Galatians 3:1-5 ; John 4:23-24 ; Colossians 2:8

  • We believe in the continuance of the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Jesus with His disciples, so that we may truly discern the Body of Christ in its totality, unity and authority, and that this celebration stands as a memorial of Christ’s suffering and death, and as a prophecy of His coming and, as such, is commanded to all His followers until that Day.
    1 Corinthians 10:15-17 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.

  • We believe in the physical, triumphant return of Jesus Christ, to an overcoming and glorious Church.
    1 Thessalonians 4:14-18
