He is the founder of The Glory Revival which is an apostolic ministry that aims to awaken a generation of glory revival carriers and proclaim the gospel to all the world & to make disciples of all nations
The Scriptures Inspired.
The Bible is the revealed Word of God to man: The Bible is our sole rule for discipline and government. The Bible IS GOD'S WORD. IT is sufficient. It has full authority over our lives.
(II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:21).
The One True God. The Triune God. (3 in 1)
The one true God has revealed Himself as the “I AM,” the Creator, and Redeemer of mankind. The triune Godhead consists of one true God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and Holy Spirit the third person of the Godhead
The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit are 3 Distinct Persons yet are ONE BEING. ONE GOD as 3 Persons.
(John 10:36; 14:26; 20:21-22).
In the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal returning in power and glory
(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 23; Luke 1:34-35)
In the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit is the Helper that Jesus promised that comes to exalt Jesus, convict us of sin, regenerate our hearts, lead us to truth, and empower us for spiritual life
In Special Creation.
We believe the triune God created the universe apart from pre-existing materials and without any evolutionary process. We believe in the historicity of the first eleven chapters of Genesis
(Genesis 1:1; Nehemiah 9:6; Psalms 102:25; Acts 14:15).
We believe that Satan was originally created a perfect being. He rebelled against God. As a result, he became depraved, the devil and adversary of God and His people, the leader of a host of angels who fell with him.
Satan has been judged and defeated at the cross and awaits his ultimate doom at the conclusion of the Millennial Reign which takes place after the Second Advent of Jesus Christ
(Ephesians 2:2; I Thessalonians 3:5; I Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:9; 20:1-3; 7-10).
The Fall of Man.
Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness!" However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God
(Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
The Salvation of Man.
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Conditions to Salvation.
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life
(Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7).
The Evidence of Salvation.
The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit
The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness
(Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12).
Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God
(Romans 12:1-2; I Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12).
Sanctification is obtainable as a second definite work of grace, received by faith in the blood of Christ.
Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit
(Romans 6:1-11,13; 8:1-2,13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12-13; I Peter 1:5).
The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements
- bread and fruit of the vine – is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ
(II Peter 1:4);
a memorial of His suffering and death
(I Corinthians 11:26);
and a prophecy of His second coming
(I Corinthians 11:26);
and is enjoined on all believers "until He comes!"
We believe we get to experience the Gospel by the practice of Communion, we will experience:
(Healing, Deliverance, Salvation, Baptisms of The Holy Spirit, Union with Christ, Union with the body.)
Baptism in Water.
The ordinance of baptism by full immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit is commanded in the Scriptures.
All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized.
Thus, they declare to the world that they died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in the newness of life.
During Baptism the old man is buried & they rise up as a NEW CREATION in Christ.
(Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4).
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
All believers are entitled to, should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.
(Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6).
This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry
(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4; I Corinthians 12:1-31).
With the baptism in Holy Spirit comes such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit
(John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8),
a deepened reverence for God (Acts 2:42-43),
and a more active love for Christ, for His Word, and for the lost
The Holy Spirit distributes to the believer Spiritual Gifts as He wills. These gifts differ according to the grace given to us. As members of the Body of Christ we should work together using the manifestation of the Spirit through those different gifts for the common good
(Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-12).
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers.
Additionally the Casting out of Demons is a command given to all believers to bring freedom to those who are bound.
(Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16, Isaiah 61).
The Church and Its Mission. (The Ecclesia)
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointment for the fulfillment of her great commission.
The Body of Christ has been commanded to preach the Gospel to all creation (Mark 16:15), make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19), and love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind and love our neighbor as ourselves (Luke 10:27).
Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).
Since God's purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshiped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the priority reason-for-being of the International Church of Christ is:
To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16).
To be a corporate body in which man may worship God (I Corinthians 12:13).
To be a channel of God's purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11-16; I Corinthians 12:28; 14:12).
The Glory Revival exists expressly to give continuing emphasis to this reason-for-being in the New Testament apostolic pattern by teaching and encouraging believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
Enables them to evangelize in the power of Holy Spirit with accompanying supernatural signs (Mark 16:15-20; Acts 4:29-31; Hebrews 2:3-4).
Adds a necessary dimension to worshipful relationship with God (I Corinthians 2:10-16; 12; 13; and 14).
Enables them to respond to the full working of Holy Spirit in expression of fruit and gifts and ministries as in New Testament times for the edifying of the body of Christ (Galatians 5:22-26; I Corinthians 12:28; 14:12; Ephesians 4:11-12; Colossians 1:29).
The Fivefold Ministry.
A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in:
Evangelization of the world (Mark 16:15-20);
Worship of God(John 4:23-24); and
Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son.
This ministry includes those given as Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers for equipping, building, attaining unity, imparting knowledge, growing, and maturing believers to the stature and fullness of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16).
The Blessed Hope. The Return of Christ!
We Believe in The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep(died) in Christ and their translation together with the just who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 15:51-52).
Additionally we believe in a POST-Tribulation Return where the saints will be tried in the final hour, but will come out as a victorious & glorious bride!
As Christ states in Matthew 24:29-31
After the tribulation he will appear & come in the clouds to gather us!
The Millennial Reign of Christ.
The Word of God promises the catching away of the prepared and waiting saints, followed by the great wrath, and then the return of our Lord with His saints and holy angels in power and great glory to reign on earth a thousand years.
This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel (Ezekiel 37:21-22; Zephaniah 3:19-20; Romans 11:26-27)
and the establishment of universal peace (Isaiah 11:6-9; Psalms 72:3-8; Micah 4:3-4).
The Final Judgment.
There will be a final judgment at which all men will be judged and the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works.
Whoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, and the beast and false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
(Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15, 21:8)
There are 2 Judgments,
The Great White Throne - sheep & goat
The Judgement Seat of Christ - the believers judgement
The New Heaven and the New Earth.
"But according to His promise, we are looking for new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells" and where all of God’s children will reign forever
(II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1).
