What We Believe

  • We believe that there is one Living and True God, eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; and that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all.
  • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; and that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Apostle’s Creed

  • We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teaching, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal visible return to earth. We believe that in His first coming Jesus inaugurated the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.
  • We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as God’s will for every believer; we believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.
  • We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation until they receive Jesus Christ as their Savior from their sins; and that God regenerates and baptizes by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
  • We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons, are members.
  • We believe in the Apostle’s Creed as embodying fundamental facts of the Christian faith and endorse the historic orthodox creeds of the Church.
  • We believe the in the ordinances and sacraments of Water Baptism, the Lord’s Supper, Foot Washing, and the Dedication of Children.
  • We believe in water baptism and communion open to all believers.
  • We believe also in the laying on of hands for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for ordination of pastors, elders, deacons, and confirming the believers, for receiving gifts of the Spirit and for healing.
  • We believe in the personal, visible appearing of Christ to each believer and the consummation of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and endless suffering of the wicked.
  • We believe in the Apostle’s Creed as embodying fundamental facts of the Christian faith and endorse the historic orthodox creeds of the church.


After 18 years of dedicated and committed service at Emmanuel Christian Fellowship, where Pastor Bennie served in virtually every capacity of ministry as a leader and Pastor, the Fluellen family set out from the place where they were, to fulfill the call of God upon their lives to begin a new church work.

Overflow Ministries Covenant Church was incepted August 18, 1996 in Cincinnati, Ohio, under the leadership of Bennie and Delores Fluellen, founding Pastors and Overseers. Having begun with a core group of 21 people, Overflow Ministries was preparing to extend the Kingdom of God through the local church. Overflow Ministries was commissioned to impact the community, city, state and country spiritually, socially and economically as a Christian Community of Believers.

Since its inception, Overflow Ministries has pursued its vision of being a redeemed community of New Testament Church believers of every nation, kindred, tongue and people who not only see the Kingdom of God but enter the Kingdom as heirs and joint heirs with Christ, possessing all that pertains to Kingdom living.

Inherent in the vision is that Overflow Ministries become a Joseph Company. This Joseph Company is a people called out from among the people, who through the principles of stewardship and sowing and reaping (with the divine favor of God upon their lives), position themselves economically to give into the work of the Kingdom of God universally.

The very first services were held for approximately three months in Northland Hall in Forest Park, which was approximately 750 square feet. from that place, we moved and held our services at the then Marriott Hotel on Chester Road in Springdale. After fulfilling its contractual obligations with the hotel, in May of 1997, we relocated to the Fair Oaks Shopping Center in Fairfield, Ohio where we occupied an anchor spot of approximately 8500 square feet near Receptions. When our lease term expired in May 2000, we relocated to 4778 Dues Drive. This move accommodated a tremendous need for Children's Ministry and classroom space. We leased approximately 19,000 square feet of space in three separate spaces. In 2003, we once again relocated to 2235 Waycross Road with the intent to purchase the location. Here we rented 22,000 square feet in five separate spaces. However, in 2007 we were blessed to purchased the vacant, former Frank's Nursery just a few blocks down the road at 10870 Hamilton Avenue. Our current facility is about 25,000 sq.ft of space, and houses our Sanctuary, as well as our Executive Offices, lecture Hall, classrooms, and banquet space. Phase Two of the project is currenty in the works, and will include retail space, additional banquet facilities, a cafe, and book store.

In August 2002, Overflow Ministries opened Identity and Destiny Academy for school children grades Pre-kindergarten through grade 5. With an enrollment of six children in the Pre-K and Kindergarten class along with four in the Primary class within our first year, it allowed us to lay proper foundation that has caused us to grow to our current enrollment of approximately 45 children in Pre-K and Kindergarten class with approximately 30 children in Primary class. The ID Academy is a tuition based school with an emphasis on Academic and Character development.

Apostle Bennie Fluellen
Believer…Husband…Father…Pastor…Teacher… Songwriter…Recording Artist…Worship Leader… Author

Apostle Bennie Fluellen is the Pastor/Founder of Overflow Ministries Covenant Church, whose vision rests upon "Building the Foundation of Family, Marriage, Relationships, Performing Arts & Entrepreneurs'." Covenant is the hallmark of Overflow Ministries, coupled with the biblical principles of wealth and stewardship.

Apostle Bennie's heart beats after God's heart as a true Shepherd of God's flock. His earth shaking teachings on shepherding literally dismantles the religious mindset of Christianity provoking Shepherds and sheep alike to establish a biblical paradigm concerning the fivefold ministry office of Pastor.

The explosive teaching, preaching and singing ministry of Apostle Bennie Fluellen continues to bless and equip the Body of Christ.

Before founding Overflow Ministries Covenant Church, Apostle Bennie served as an Associate Pastor of Christ Emmanuel Christian Fellowship, Cincinnati, Ohio for eighteen years. Fifteen of those years he specifically served in the area of Worship & Arts as choir director, worship leader, and lead vocalist.

Pastor Bennie (as he is affectionately called) can be heard on, “Successful Meditations” as songwriter, lead vocalist, and Executive Producer. This project accompanies his book, “D.A.R.E. To Succeed and Prosper.” You will also find Apostle Bennie on the Nation of Praise project (Heirs Media Group), where he is the writer and lead vocalist of the song “Healing In His Wings”.


Serving in ministry alongside her husband, she serves as Pastor of OMCC. As an Elder with oversight of several ministries and outreaches of the church, her gracious anointing has brought an undeniable culture to OMCC that bears her mark of grace. Her heart is filled with love and passion for the vision. She is affectionately known by the people that she serves as "Mama Lo" or Pastor Delores. She exemplifies "the feminine anointing" as she ministers without any pretense or desire to be anything or anyone else other than the Godly Lady that God has made her. Her gentle, sweet spirit pours out of her as she moves often under the propehtic unction that leaves you loved and touched by the mothering nature of God through her.

Pastor Delores is also known as "The Tea Lady" hosting Tea Parties and ministering the unconditional love of God and restoring wholeness to women who somehow have lost the quality of femininity and an appreciation for who God has made them. She personifies the word of God through precept and example as the Proverbs 31 woman. Because of herwisdom, she has taken a house (both her personal and the House of God) and made it a home for her family and extended family. Because of her, her husband is known in the city gates; her husband safely trusts her. When she speaks, she has something worthwhile to say, ans she always says it kindly. Her children rise up and call her blessed. Her husband joins in with words of praise, many women have done wonderful things, but she has outclassed them all!

Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. This woman is to be admired and praised because she lives in the fear of the Lord.
