The church we see is Saved; Healed; Delivered/set free, Trained/discipleship, Equipped/empower and Ministering.
Saved. To be saved is to repent (change your mind); to be baptized in the name of Jesus; receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit; and continue to live a life of obedience to the word of God. Matthew 7:21-23
Healing is emotional and physical. Healing is a very necessary part of your walk with God. After divorce, abandonment, betrayal or being offended, one will need to understand the need for inner healing. Before we enter into other relationships it is necessary to be healed from the past. Psalm 107:19-21
Deliverance is a ministry for the believer. It is a fact that all of us need to be delivered from something when we come to Christ because of our family backgrounds and doors that have been open in our lives through our own disobedience. John 8:31-38
Trained/ Discipleship. We are to be discipled to develop the disciplines necessary to stay saved and help others to become Christians. Matthew 4:18-20
Equipped/Empower. It is the responsibility of the Pastors (Leaders) to equip you by helping you identify your gifting and placing you in a position to serve in the Kingdom. Ephesians 4:11-13
Ministering. We want to see everyone serving in their gifting. The highest office in the Bible is a servant.
God is the creator and ruler of the Universe who has eternally existed in eternity and has made himself known to man as Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in regeneration. (Gen 1:1,27) (Ps 60:2) (2Cor. 13:14)
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all the people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's Glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. (Matt. 1:22-23) (Is.9:6) (John 1:1-5) (John 14:10-30).
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
God is holy (I Peter 1:16). In fact, God alone is Holy in Himself. Furthermore, God is a Spirit, (John 4:24) and there is only one Spirit of God. (Eph 4:4) The Holy Spirit is God. (Acts 5:3-4) (I Cor 3:16-17, 6:19-20) One of the titles of the Holy Spirit is "Spirit of God". (Rom.8:9) The Bible uses the expression Holy Spirit frequently in reference to the part of God's activity among and in mankind that only a spirit can perform.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God's word to us. It was written by human writers under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. (II Tim. 3:16) (II Peter 1:20-21) (Ps.119: 105,160).
ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by the attitude of sin that separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from a self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith and obedience to His gospel we are saved. (Acts 2:38) (Rom 6:23) (Eph. 2:8-9) (John 14:6).
