About Us

Our Statement of Faith 

We believe in the holy trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost proven throughout scripture: God in three persons, yet all ONE God; like a three leafed clover. (Matthew 28:19; 1Corinthians 12:4-6)

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was born of a virgin, lived the life of a mortal man, died on the cross as a blood atonement for our sins, was resurrected, and is now seated on the right hand of the Father in heaven. (Acts 3:26; Matthew 1:20-23; Revelation 1:5; Colossians 3:1; 1John 4:2)

We believe the words of Jesus in John 3:3-7: except a man be BORN AGAIN, he cannot see or enter the kingdom of heaven.

We believe a person is saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and not by works (Ephesians 2:8,9).  But true repentance is "turning away" from your sins--a change of heart/change of mind; and true repentance will always produce good works in the life of a Christian, for "faith without works is dead." (James 2:20,26)

We believe in the doctrine
of baptism(s) as mentioned in Hebrews 6:2:
*Baptism (Salvation) into the body of Christ by the washing of water by the Word (spiritual regeneration or rebirth; see Ephesians 5:26; Titus 3:5; 1Peter 3:21)
*Holy Spirit Baptism (God the Holy Spirit indwelling the believer) evidenced by speaking in tongues (for more about this, please see our teaching entitled "The Difference Between the Prayer Language of Tongues and the Gift of Tongues").
*Water Baptism (the symbolic outward cleansing of the flesh) as proof of the inward "clean conscience toward God" (1Peter 3:21).

We believe a person CAN lose his salvation,  as Hebrews 5:9 states that Jesus is "the author of eternal salvation TO ALL THOSE WHO OBEY HIM."  We also know by reading 2 Peter, Jude and Revelation that salvation is conditional, and the believer's name CAN be blotted out of the Book of Life due to disobedience (sin).

We believe Jesus when he commanded, "Go and SIN NO MORE" (John 5:14; 8:11).  Christians should be "practicing righteousness," not living in habitual sin.  "He that is born of God does not commit {practice, as Vines Expository Dictionary expounds} sin, for his seed remaineth in him, and he cannot sin, because he is born of God"  (1John 3:9).

We believe that it is essential for the child of God to know his/her identity in Christ: his inheritance. This comes by studying the Bible and thereby renewing the mind.

We teach believers how to experience God's presence and build an intimate relationship with Him. When this is done, overcoming sin is easier because we are drawing near to Him and taking our eyes off of "self." When we abide in Jesus, we bear much fruit, for without Him we can do nothing (John 15)

In their earlier years as Christians, Jay and Paula  attended a bible school and were recognized as bible teachers.  Afterward, they traveled to Africa, teaching in bible schools. Some time later, the Lord called them both to evangelism, and they have been preaching the gospel in the open air for a number of years. More recently, after they spent time "coveting the best gifts," God shifted their paradigm dramatically. By His grace, Paula received a supernatural visit from Jesus and was taken into the heavenly realm by an angel. Her legalistic, religious-spirited mindset was completely altered, and she began receiving supernatural revelation, as did Jay. It was at this point that God expanded their ministry to include the prophetic stream, and they are both used frequently in the corporate gift of tongues/interpretation along with prophetic words and visions. Jay frequently operates in healing, receiving words of knowledge for people about their ailments. Paula has been given a new mantle of prophetic psalmist and seer. In 2013, they were officially ordained as pastors, and in 2016 they were again licensed through FMA. Currently, they function as young adult pastors who teach, counsel, and pray for those who seek spiritual direction. Jay and Paula have a heart for God, and a heart for people. Their message is one of love, but it also embraces holiness and the fear of the Lord. They don't believe in compromising the truth! It is their desire to see many come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and to equip Christians to fulfill their high calling in God. 

Aside from the ministry, Jay is also a full time welder, and Paula is an author, homemaker, and homeschooling mother.
