Mission & Vision

About Us

As we learn to love the Father, we learn how to love one another in a greater way. Our preparation begins with building character qualities, first and foremost in the depths of our own hearts so that in the time to come, we will be able to manifest the anointing (Glory of God) with wisdom and in greater measure. Our challenge is to add to our daily walk habits such as praying, walking and living in the Spirit.
We are an assembly of kingdom warriors who have a love for the Lord and are called to a place of intimacy in the presence of our Father. We seek to know the Father more and walk in the obedience of His Word.

We are apostolic in that we endeavor to break the fallow ground around us and advance the Kingdom of God with demonstration and power. We are prophetic in that we have presented ourselves to the Lord as vessels for His glory. In the Word of God, the word Prophet is used to describe one who is a seer. They see and hear the Lord God and then respond to the people accordingly. The Prophet is sensitive to the voice of God; he operates with the mind of Christ and not his own. He moves as if he were the hands, eyes, feet, ears of Jesus, and as if he is the very mouthpiece of God.

Statement of faith

We believe in the verbal inspiration of the scriptures and the authority of both the Old and New Testaments.

We believe man was created in the image of God, through disobedience sinned and fell, and that the entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved nature.

We believe Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of a man by means of the virgin birth. Atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial and substitutional death of Jesus Christ.

We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His priestly intercession.

We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, our Comforter sent to convict the world of sin, which places the believer in the Body of Christ, indwells the believer, and bestows spiritual gifts to the Church.

We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all believers as a definite endowment of power for service and is subsequent to, and separate from, conversion.
We believe that the ordinances of the church, by the command of Christ, are Water Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper, both of which are administered to those who are born again.

We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers and in the eternal damnation and punishment of the nonbelievers.

We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal, and glorious return of Jesus Christ, the "Blessed Hope" of the Church.
We believe in the five-fold ministry of Jesus Christ working and operating in the life of the Church today. His call to these offices is not limited to gender, creed, or ethnicity.

We believe that signs, wonders, and miracles do follow the believer and that every born-again believer possesses the power and authority to demonstrate the grace of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the eternal rapture of the church in the age to come.
