What We Believe

I. God is Good and Jesus is Perfect Theology

God's goodness is not unknowable or uncertain. God is a good father, who gives good gifts to His children. We maintain that God seeks to display extravagant love for people in every situation. Jesus is the ultimate representation of the Father and Holy Spirit. His actions and words depict the heart of God with complete authority. If we have a question about the nature of God, or how He interacts with humans, we need not look any farther than Jesus. He is perfect theology. He is both the way to God and God himself. Who better to seek?

II. Nothing is Impossible

We follow a God of miracles, both big and small. We represent a supernatural kingdom. The power of God is without limit or restriction. Jesus commanded that we heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, cleanse lepers, calm storms, feed the masses, move mountains, and make disciples of all nations. As His disciples, all we need is faith to partner with Jesus in making impossible things happen. Simply put, Jesus said, "Nothing will be impossible for you."

III. Everything Needed Was Purchased On The Cross

This means everything. The finished work of the cross is not to be overlooked or discounted. When Jesus was crucified, all at once He provided atonement for all sin, offered eternal life with Him, gave us access to the Father, and to the inheritance of God, a New Covenant. Simultaneously, we were crucified with Him, are now dead to sin, and He now lives in us. The Hebrew idea of salvation also meant freedom from sickness and death, salvation from physical enemies, and a right to peace of heart. Every need you have has already been bought for you. Do you need forgiveness? Do you need healing? Do you need wisdom? Just ask, and it's yours because of the direct path Jesus has made for us to the Father.

IV. The Resurrection Brings Us into His Kingdom

Jesus was resurrected three days after He died on the cross, and from there He ascended and was enthroned at the Right Hand of Power. We have also been raised up and seated with Him in Heavenly Places. As Christ awaits His enemies to be made His footstool, in the same way we are experiencing our enemies being made our footstool as we are in Christ Jesus. Because of the resurrection, we are sons and daughters of the King, and the Kingdom of God is within us. As we co-labor with God in the expansion of His Kingdom, we bring the liberty we now experience into creation itself and help deliver it from the bondage it has been under since the Fall of Adam. As agents of the Kingdom, we will influence every aspect of the culture we live in. If you are a Christian, the DNA of the Kingdom is within you, and you will change the world!

V. Holy Spirit is Our Everything

After Jesus was resurrected, God sent Holy Spirit to the earth to be His representative to all mankind. He is our Helper, our Comforter, our Teacher, our Guide, our Best Friend. He is constantly speaking to us what He hears Jesus and Father God saying, if we will open our spiritual ears to hear Him. Through Him, we have access to all the Gifts spoken of in various scriptures, including, but not limited to, word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, healing, workings of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues, and interpretation of tongues. We will live a supernatural life when we allow Holy Spirit to flow freely through us.

VI. Five-Fold Ministry

God placed the “five-fold ministry” on the earth for the church, specifically the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher. They are here for the equipping of the Body of Christ so that we can all fulfill our Godly calling, growing up in our faith, and becoming the mature Bride. They are a servant to the church, spiritual fathers and mothers, given as a gift from God. They are not here to tell us how to live, but to be an example to encourage us and help us acquire the skills needed to become who God has intended us to be. They are a necessary part of the modern-day church.

VII. Today’s Church

We believe Jesus when He said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”  (1 John 14:12)  We believe now is the time when we will begin to see many unknown people of God doing miraculous wonders, and it will all be for the glory of God, not man. We believe this is normal Christianity. If Jesus was a normal Christian, what is the typical church in America? Abnormal! We are to look and act like Jesus, not in a religious way, but fulfilling His commandment to “love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12) This is how we evangelize - live out our lives in humility, love, and obedience, touching others with supernatural signs and wonders as God leads. People do not want to hear religious arguments, they want the supernatural. They want to know and experience the love of God and the miracle-working power of God. How will they do that except through us? We are God’s hands and voice to a lost generation.

VIII. Each Person is Significant

You are an essential piece of the Body of Christ. His beloved. Friend of God. If a person is willing to engage the Spirit of the Lord, to befriend Him, then that person has become indispensable to the purposes of God. His command given to us to do the impossible and represent His Kingdom was a stamp of His approval and a command of honor and significance. It has always been God's plan to work through human agency. Nearly every significant move of God has been ushered in by people. The fact is, God wants to restore people and nations, and He wants to do it through you! You have purpose, worth, and value!
