Statement of faith
What we believe is important!
The Word of God - We believe that the scriptures are the inspired written Word of God, and are to be taken seriously. The Holy Spirit came upon called and chosen men of their time and inspired the writings we find today in the Bible. See 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:20-21
The Trinity - We believe that there is only one true God, which consists of three persons, the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. See John 15:26
Sin - Sin is disobedience to the commands of God, which we find in His Word. The two commands by which all others rest upon are to love the Lord your God, and also thy brother. See Matthew 22:36-40
The fallen state of man - All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God, and are in need of a savior. See Romans 3:23
The need of a savior - As a result of our fallen sin nature, we are in need of a savior. The plenty for sin is death, and unless it is paid, that person will suffer eternal separation from God. We cannot pay this on our own through good works. See Romans 6:23
Hell is real - Hell is a very real place, which we do not wish anybody to go. Unfortunately, if they die without being redeemed from their sins, this is where they will spend eternity. See Revelations 20:15
Salvation - God so loved the world, that while we were yet sinners, He sent His dear son to pay the price for our sin on our behalf. It is up to us to believe God and accept this payment for our sins. Salvation comes through Jesus alone and by no other means can a man be saved. See John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12
Jesus Christ - He is the messiah, the Son of God, the promised one sent from the Father to save us from our sins. Jesus is an exact representation of the Father, and he went about demonstrating the will of His Father in heaven for us by means of great miracles, healings, and deliverances. Jesus is God who came in the flesh, and by Him, all things were made. See Colossians 2:9, John 1:29, John 9:4, Acts 10:38, John 1:1-3,13-14
The reality of demons - When Satan was cast out of heaven, he took with him a third of the stars of heaven. We believe these stars are referring to angels, which are today known as demonic spirits which we encounter when ministering deliverance to people. They are under the leadership of Satan and carry out his evil commissions on the earth today. See Revelation 12:4, Matthew 12:24
The workings of demons - These messengers of Satan are sent forth to carry out the assignment given to them by their leader Satan. To kill, steal, and destroy are the goals of our enemy Satan, and therefore this is what we see his demons doing on earth. We find these demons opposing the work of God in governments, leadership, schools, and yes, even churches. They can do all sorts of false signs and wonders, fortune telling, etc. On a personal level, we find them behind all sorts of physical, mental, and spiritual bondages. See John 10:10, Luke 13:11,16, Matthew 9:32-33, Matthew 17:15,18, Revelations 16:14, Ephesians 6:12
Casting out demons - This is an important ministry that Jesus has demonstrated unto us, and handed down to all them who believe. See John 14:12, Mark 16:15,17
Can a Christian have a demon? - Yes! Just as a believer can be in bondage to pornography, lust, anger, and other evil bondages, they can also carry unclean spirits as well. There is much more information on this subject on www.MinisteringDeliverance.com along with very solid Biblical evidence as well.
