The Vision of the Church (Continued)
(1) We must go back to the community to restore and reconcile God's people back to Christ.
(2) We must accept and embrace all walks of life with no condemnation or prejudgment.
(3) We are to demonstrate the love of God by loving the unloveable, ungrateful, and unthankful.
(4) We must build strong families that will create strong communities establishing a solid foundation upon which our churches are to be built.
(5) We must establish churches worldwide that will demonstrate the love of Jesus.
Mission Statement (Continued)
Many people have been damaged and harmed by the world and by some churches. Therefore, we must continuously seek ways to heal the brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captive, recover the sight of the blind, and set at liberty them that are bruised.
REPENT: To repent is to change your actions by walking in Christ. "God be merciful to me a sinner." (Luke 18:13)
BELIEVE: A believer is a follower of Christ who simply believes and stands on the word of God. "Repent ye therefore, and be thou converted, that your sins may be blotted out." (Acts 3:19)
CONFESS: Conversion to Christ is not complete without acknowledging that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior. "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)
BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT: Nothing can be achieved for God's kingdom without the Holy Spirit orchestrating your steps. "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)
ARE YOU READY TO BE SAVED? THEN SAY THIS SIMPLE PRAYER...
Lord Jesus, I believe you were sent to the earth, lived, and died for my sins, and was resurrected from the dead. Please forgive me of my sins. I invite you into my heart to be my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
What We Believe (Continued)
That in the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth and gave man dominion over the works of His hands to subdue, and to replenish the Earth. Therefore, man is able to live a productive and fruitful life, add to the productivity of the lives of others, and leave a deposit in the Earth for the next generation.
That the Bible is the inspired Word of God, written by Holy men of God as the Holy Spirit moved, and the entire Scripture – from Genesis to Malachi and Matthew to Revelation – contains all things necessary for our salvation, and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and for instructions in righteousness.
That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, that He was crucified, died and was buried and that on the third day He arose from the dead and that He is the Savior of the world. He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, making intercessions for us at the Throne of God. We believe that Jesus died to purchase the Church, He arose to give resurrected life to the Church, He ascended to be the Head of the Church, and He’s coming back again for His Church. He is the way, the truth, and the life and no man cometh unto the Father, but by Him.
That salvation only comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ by a confession with the mouth and a belief in the heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We do not believe that water baptism is unto salvation, but rather is an outer expression of an inner conviction and represents to us that inward purity which positions us to follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and that He died and rose again for us, so should we, who are baptized, be baptized with the Holy Ghost and die to sin and rise again unto righteousness. Good works cannot bring about salvation, but are the fruits of and spring forth out of a true faith in God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
That we should trust God, trust leadership and trust each other so that all who believe and are on one accord would network their resources together.
That the love of God, which is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, is the foundation of all our actions, causes us to live by the requirements of our faith, and that LOVE NEVER FAILS.
