Faith, Family, Finances:
The scripture state the just shall live by faith. As just people, our currency is faith; we can cash in on our faith. The amount of faith we have determines the amount of things we can receive from God. Therefore, money and faith have the same principles; the more you possess the more you can spend.
Faith determines the amount of substance a man can accomplish. It’s not your money or talents that determine your buying power; it’s your faith level. God gives every man a measure of faith to fuel his vision. God gives each person enough faith to manifest their vision on earth. God is the author and finisher of our faith.
The marriage is styled after the church; therefore the husband and wife play an important role in our society. The family structure is the foundation for success. Most of our society's problems stem from a dysfunctional family environment. When a husband leads the house, there is a higher percentage of success.
The blessing of the father is placed upon the son. We see the paternal blessing was given to Esau. Esau and Jacob fought over the blessing of Isaac. However, Jacob tricked Esau into selling his birth right and their battles still remain today. It’s important to obtain the family inheritance that is passing down from generation to generation. “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children” Proverbs 13:22. It’s biblically important to leave a family inheritance for the next generation.
A banker once said “life is great once the finances are in order.” In the Old Testament, God created covenant based upon the wealth factor Deuteronomy 8:18. The second part of the scripture lets us know that this is a family inheritance. Jesus sad, “He became poor that you might be rich”. Jesus has left an inheritance behind so that our financial status changes. Both are concerns about the financial stability of Christians.
God has given instruction on being a good steward of your possession. Wealth has always been a part of our inheritance. However, we must be good stewards of the things of God. In the New Testament, “whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath”. If you aren’t good steward, he will give it to someone that is with usury. Luke 19:26.
In conclusion, 3 John 1:4 states "I have no greater joy than for his children to walk in truth." Walking in truth is to have a grasp on all three components, walking or mastering each component. We have manifestation in each component to become all God is desiring us to be.

What We Believe:
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Bible is inerrant and infallible.
We believe that every born again believer should pattern his/her lifestyle according to the Bible.
We believe that there is one God that reveals himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (Elohim).
We believe that everyone must be born again. Everyone begins as a sinner because of Adam. However, confession of sins can save us, repenting of our sins, and being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then, we have completed the salvation process. We believe baptism is fully immersing oneself in the water.
We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. On the day of Pentecost, every Christian should receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the church of today operates in the same spiritual gifts as the 1st century church etc, speaking tongues, laying on of hands, prophecy and evangelism.
We believe that faith plays as a major role in receiving from God. Also, we believe in the prosperity in every believer’s life.
We believe after conversion everyone should undergo discipleship. Discipleship begins by coming to Christian Growth, Sunday Service, Prayer Service and Bible Study on a consistent basis.
We believe in Heaven and Hell. Everyone will be appointed to one or the other depending on your lifestyle.
