The Bible: We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (See 2 Timothy 3:16-17) The Bible is the revelation of God’s will to man. It is superior to all tradition though it contains no tradition, being above conscience and reasoning of man, though it is not contrary to reason.

The Godhead: We fully believe in the mystery of the Godhead. We believe that God has been pleased to manifest Himself as Father, the source of all living and as Son; the channel and Revealer and Energizer of all life. The Father is the invisible God who was made visible in Jesus, and the Holy Ghost is the invisible counterpart of God. The Father is God in creation; the Son is God in redemption, and the Holy Ghost is God in inspiration.

When one manifestation of the Godhead is patent, that is can be seen, the other two are latent; that is can only be seen through the one that is patent. (See John 14:6-1) Jesus was both human and divine; Mary’s son and Mary’s God; Creator and Creation; God manifested in the flesh and external God. We believe that at the final consummation of all things, the one visible God will be our lord Jesus Christ.

Salvation: This we believe… The Entrance(Bishop Norman L. Wagner) This we believe…that there is One God, Creator of all whose name is Jesus and that the entrance into his kingdom is through repentance of sin and water baptism by immersion in Jesus’ Name and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance. (See John 3:3-5, Matt 28:19, Mark 16:16, Luke 24:47, Acts 1:8, 4:12, 2:38) We are Pentecostal by experience and Apostolic by Faith. (See Acts 1:8,2:38, 42-47, Deut 6:4)

Prayer: Prayer is one of the greatest weapons you can possess. To have life, liberty and happiness, it is imperative that you learn to pray. Prayer is vital to the process of the manifestation of God in your life. -BNLW Prayer requires skill and demands transition. Prayer sets the platform for manifestation. Prayer must have focus. Prayer is more than communicating with God but is also connecting with God. Prayer will not only move mountains, but prayer will move God. (See James 5:16) It is important to know the main ingredient in prayer is faith. Prayer requires you to see Jesus, you must learn to think and see as God thinks and sees.

Fasting: Fasting means nothing without effective prayer! Fasting positions, you to fulfill the purpose and promise of God with power. Fasting and prayer release the mind of God. (See 2 Chron 20:3, 15-17)

Stewardship: Stewardship is the faithful management of all God entrusted increase. According to (Acts 20:35) the scriptures declare “It is more blessed to give than to receive”. Life is filled with opportune moments to give and to receive. God created you with a command to give and to receive (See Gen 1:28) Giving and receiving are prophetic gateways into the increase of the kingdom of God.

Stewardship is NOT just about Money, but Stewardship describes the highest form of worship which is the power and worship of giving. We as stewards of Gods increase must comprehend that nothing truly belongs to us, it all belongs to God. (See 2 Corinth 9:6-7) Caution! There is a danger in holding on to what was designed to be released. The tithe is that which belongs to God. (See Gen 3:1-3) A person tithes not to be blessed but because he has already been blessed. However, there is a blessing in tithing (See Mal 3:10)

Evangelism: “Go ye therefore” Go you (ye) therefore is a command given by our lord to the nations to make disciples of men. This command is an action to Go and tell somebody the Good News! “After the Holy Ghost is come upon you…ye shall be witnesses unto me…” (See Acts 1:8) After receiving the baptism of water and of the spirit one then becomes a witness of the saving power of God.

Luke 6:38King James Version (KJV)

38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
