Jay and Paula Gilbert are pastors, counselors, teachers, and evangelists.  

our spirituality


  • Jay and Paula both lived wild lives before coming to Jesus Christ and being saved from their sins.  In their youth and young adulthood, they lived with no concern for their future and made many poor choices that affected not only them but the people around them.  

  • But once they handed over their lives to Jesus Christ, He began teaching them their true identity and revealing to them His plans and purpose for their lives. They progressed from being constantly focused on themselves to being focused on God and others.  

  • You can read more of Paula's very detailed testimony in her autobiography entitled True Love: Chronicle of an Ex-White Witch. Visit our merchandise page to find out more about it.

we Believe

  •  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) 

Ministry and community

  •  In their earlier years as Christians, Jay and Paula  attended a bible school and were recognized as bible teachers.  Afterward, they traveled to Africa and Guatemala, teaching in bible schools and church groups. 

  • 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 and expanded their ministry to include the prophetic stream.  Paula began receiving supernatural revelation and was called into the ministry of prophetic psalmist and seer.  Jay frequently operates in healing, receiving words of knowledge for people about their ailments.  They are both used frequently in the corporate gift of tongues/interpretation along with prophetic words and visions.  

  • Currently, they are ordained 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.
