Vision, Mission & Doctrinal Beliefs

 
 

Vision
Change the body of Christ’s perception of God by preparing and sending leaders to proclaim the truth of the Gospel throughout America and the world.

 

Mission

Equip faithful men and women for the work of the ministry by teaching spiritual truths, imparting biblical knowledge, providing practical ministry opportunities, and grounding them in the message of God’s unconditional love and grace.

 

Doctrinal Beliefs

The Scriptures

We believe that all of Scripture (i.e. both the Old and New Testament) is verbally inspired by God, and is our final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness (II Tim. 3:16,17).

 

God

We believe in only one true God; One in essence, nature, and attributes, but existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (I Jn. 5:7).

 

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, of His shed blood on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins, of His bodily resurrection and ascension to the Father's right hand. We do not believe that He is a way to the Father, but rather the only way through which we can receive righteousness, regeneration, sanctification, and glorification. He is, in fact, our salvation (I Cor. 1:30-31).

 

Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit, expressed with speaking in tongues according to Acts 1:8; 2:4; 9:17; 10:44-46; 11:15,16; and 19:6. We believe this experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth, and can be received by faith (Gal. 3:2).

 

Salvation

We believe that all who, in repentance and faith, receive the Lord Jesus as Savior and Lord are born again (Acts 20:20-21; Rom. 10:9-13).

 

Healing

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross has provided healing for the human body (Mt. 8:16,17; Isa. 53:4; I Pet. 2:24).

 

The Resurrection

We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust; one to everlasting life and one to everlasting damnation (Mt. 25:46).

 

The Second Coming

We believe in a literal, physical second return of the Lord Jesus Christ (I Th. 1:10; 4:16-17).

 

The Church

We believe that the universal church is comprised of all true believers who have received salvation through Christ (Eph. 1:22-23). We also believe in and encourage fellowship with a local church (Heb. 10:25).

 

Gifts of the Spirit

We believe that spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the common good and building up of others today (I Cor. 12:7).
