Who is Tyler J Doka, Pastor of Pillar of Truth Christian Church in Woodmere, Long Island, New York?

Tyler J. Doka says the following on his church website about himself:

Brother Tyler is the pastor of Pillar of Truth Christian Church and was born and raised on Long Island, NY. After attending a secular college he received salvation through belief on the Lord Jesus Christ. He then met his wife Maria through a faith based profile on eHarmony, and after a few days of knowing each other, they both deleted their accounts and began dating. Three months later they were engaged, then married, and now have a beautiful baby girl Adaline and another child on the way.

Brother Tyler started Pillar of Truth Christian Church on January 14th, 2018. Following the path laid out in the Bible, he was trained at his local Church, where he labored in the gospel. This is where he preached, taught, song lead, won people to the Lord, and then lastly he was ordained to start a church on Long Island. The Long Island location was the first location of Pillar of Truth Christian Church, however on June 9th 2019 we will be planting another location in Maspeth (Queens), NY. Lord willing we will plant many churches all over New York and other parts of the country, in the Lord’s time.

Brother Tyler currently works full time at his secular job and will continue to do so until the Lord leads him to pastor the church full time. This will never hinder his ability to lead this church or his family in the direction of the Lord, but will be an example to the younger and older men that hard work and labor for the gospel is possible. Brother Tyler is our Long Island location’s pastor, as well as the main preacher for that location, who also spends his free time soul winning, studying the bible, and ministering to the saints.

Here’s who Tyler Doka really is:

  1. He is a flat earther who preached many sermons on why the earth is literally flat.
  2. He believes planets don’t exist (See video here)
  3. He believes not all Christians are saints
  4. He thinks not all Christians will be raptured
  5. He thinks that some Christians will go to the lake of fire
  6. He teaches that Christians shouldn’t wear suits or anything other than casual clothes in church
  7. He teaches a whole bunch of other non-biblical, ridiculous nonsense.

He has re-branded his church, which we documented thoroughly on this website. To read more about his church under its old name, Great Harvest Baptist Church, click here.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and children am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Chrsitian Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.

Joshua, you state many things in your document above. I also believe many of the truths you have affirmed, but not all. The reason I take exception with a number of them is because they cannot be substantiated with the New Testament as we have received it (KJV.) I do not intend to do a point-by-point dismissal, because this is not the venue for such. I have had to sort through all these things as I have grown in Christ over the years. Time and again, I have watched denominational leaders make claims that simply are not true. Now, I… Read more »
