Our Vision is to minister to the needs of all people, regardless of social status or ethnicity.

OUR FOUNDATION SCRIPTURE

3

“Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to lose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke,to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house? When you see the naked that you cover him,and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh and blood?” ~ Isaiah 58:6–8

STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, without error, and profitable for doctrine, correction, reproof and instruction in righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16)

 

Jesus is Lord, demonstrated by his virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross, and resurrection from the dead. (Romans 10:9-10; Romans 1:4)

 

There is one God-The Father, The Son & Holy Spirit and that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh, (John 14:6; Ephesians 1:17; II Corinthians 13:14; I John 4:2 Galatians 4:4-6)

 

Salvation by Grace through the perfect, sinless sacrifice (the shed of blood) of the Lord Jesus Christ and His eternal resurrection from the dead. Salvation is a gift give to those who repent of their sins, openly confess Jesus as their Lord, and who believe in their heart God raised Jesus from the dead. (Eph. 2:8-9; Acts 2:38; 3:19-20; 4:12; Rom. 3:23; 10:9-10)

 

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by the demonstration of God’s power through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe in Divine Healing, Casting Out Devils, Miracles, Tongues, Interpretation, Prophecy, and the Laying on of Hands. (Acts 2:3-4; I Cor. 12, 13, 14; Heb. 6:2)

Every Christian should manifest the Fruits of the Spirit, becoming mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. ( I Cor. 14, Gal 5:20-21; Eph. 4:11-12)

 

There is a Literal Heaven and Hell (Matt. 25:46; Mark 9:42-48; Heb 6:2)

 

The Lord Jesus Christ will Return Soon. (Matt. 26:64; Acts 1:11; I Thess. 4:13-18; 5:1-3)

 

All Believers are Called to be Witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea (at home), and in Samaria (neighboring cities) and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:8; Rev. 12:11)

 

Baptism in Water the experiential truth that buries the “old man” and immerse the new creature “into” Christ. The person receives the “witness of the water” in his relationships with Christ. (Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8;  Matt. 3:16)

ELEMENTS OF OUR MINISTRY

5

Five-Fold Ministry  
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelist; and some, pastors and teachers;” For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” ~ Ephesians 4:11

 

Diversity of Gifts  
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:4

 

Differences of Administration  
“And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.”  ~ 1 Corinthians 12:5-7

 

The Gifts of the Spirit 
“For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:8-11

 

Laying on of Hands 
“And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them, and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.” ~ Acts 19:6

 

Speaking in an Unknown Tongue
“For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him, howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.” ~ 1 Corinthians 14:2


Prophecy 
“But he that prophesieth speaking unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edification the church.” ~ 1 Corinthians 14:3-4

Interpretation of Tongues “If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course: and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church: and let him speak to himself, and to God.” ~ 1 Corinthians 14:27-28

 

Spiritual Songs  
The Spirit of God is waiting to speak in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. These are songs which have been birthed by God‘s spirit, not only admonish us in God’s ways, but they also teach us. As the Levites would sing the song of the prophets, they would not only be declaring what God has done or who He was, but they were also teaching the people who God was and what He would do. These songs continually reinforce what God was doing amongst His people.

 

The Prophetic Dance  

As in the prophetic song, God will often anoint a dancer to flow in the dance prophetically as lead by the Holy Spirit.

 

Dance  
“Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.” ~ Psalms 149:3 (You are free to dance here!)

 

Clap Your Hands 
“O clap your hands all ye people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”  ~ Psalms 47:1

Joyful Noise “Make a joyful  noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.” ~ Psalms 100:1

 

Prayer 
“Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee I will pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer into thee and will look up.” ~ Psalms 5:2-3

 

We Believe in Miracles 
“And Stephen, full of FAITH and POWER, did great wonders and miracles among the people.” ~ Acts 6:89

 

Tithes & Offerings
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there my be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” ~ Malachi 3:9-10


Flags & Banners 
During praise and worship dancers often will minister in dance using banners and flags.
