"The only stipulation is you vote against abortion, corruption, excessive gun control, Obamacare and career political criminals," said the Pastor in a Facebook message.
The post ended with, "Our church is not ashamed to stand up and support Donald Trump."
Jones said he’s received overwhelming support from his congregation and a number of people in the community.
"They should have the right to speak out," Dolores Adams, who does not attend the church, told WSOC.
"He’s definitely doing a great thing by taking people to the polls, but it shouldn’t just be for his own, you know, 'I like Trump so that’s who I want you to vote for,'" said Yasim Forbes, who also does not attend the church.
Political experts stress many churches are prohibited from endorsing candidates because they are tax-exempt. "We are an independent, fundamental Baptist church," Jones said, adding tha the rule doesn’t apply to his church because the church is not tax-exempt.
But Jones said that his congregation will still pray for the winning candidate "even though we may disagree with it."
