We Believe the Following:

 

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

  • In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

  • That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

  • In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

  • Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

  • In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

  • In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

  • In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

  • Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

  • In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

  • In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

 

We are an Apostolic Ministry. We practice and teach ALL 5 Fold Ministry Gifts.

 

What is an Apostle?

 

The office and ministry of an Apostle is one of five ministry gifts Christ gives to build and bless His Church as described by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:11-16, And He Himself gave some to be apostles…” The following biblical truths are clearly revealed in this passage and the entire New Testament:

1. All five ministry gifts are given by Jesus Christ Himself to His Church.
2. All five ministry gifts are needed for the Church to fulfill Her destiny.
3. All five ministry gifts are to operate until Jesus Christ returns for His Church.
(No where in the New Testament are any of the five gifts limited by time.)

The Church has historically had no problem accepting the ministry of gifts of “evangelists, pastors, and teachers”, but even though “apostles and prophets” are equally legitimate New Testament gifts to the Church, there has been a lack of understanding and therefore acceptance of apostles and prophets. Based upon Eph. 4:11, and many other New Testament passages, there should be no more difficulty recognizing and calling someone that the Church recognizes as an “apostle” or “prophet”, than calling others “evangelist”, “pastor”, or “teacher.”

The word that is used throughout the New Testament for “apostle” literally means one sent forth from someone on a mission. The New Testament calls “the twelve” Jesus sent forth as “apostles” who had seen Him, and such others as Paul, Silas, Barnabas, Timothy, Epaphroditus, etc., who had not seen Jesus but were sent out later by the Church as apostles (Lk.6:13,9:10, I Cor.9:1,15:8, Acts14:4,14, Rom.16:7, II Cor. 8:23, Phil.2:25, I Thess.2:6, etc.).

 

 

The mission that Jesus Christ has sent apostles to do is clearly defined throughout the New Testament and is the same today:

 

  • Apostles are sent to take the gospel tounreached people (Rom.15:20).

  • Apostles are sent to plant or establish new churches(I Cor.3:10, Eph.2:20).

  • Apostles are sent to appoint and train church leaders Acts(14:21-23).

  • Apostles are sent to be “spiritual fathers” to ministers/churches(I Cor.4:15).

  • Apostles are sent to unify the Body of Christ by networking with ministers and churches (Eph.4:1-16, Acts 11:27-30, Rom. 15:25-27,I Cor. 16:1-4, etc.).

  • Apostles are sent to demonstrate and impart the supernatural (II Cor. 2:12, Acts 4:33, 8:4-7, 14-15, 10:44, 19:6, Rom 1:11, II Tim. 1:6-7).

  • Apostles are sent to correct false doctrine, sin, or church problems(I Cor. 1:1-16:24, Acts 15, etc.).

God is restoring all five ministry gifts to His Church, including apostles, so His Church can totally fulfill her New Testament mandate and mission today.
