Prevailing Word Bible Church
Our confession and vision is that...
"The Word of the Lord will grow, spread, and intensify prevailing mightily
in our spirits, in our souls, in our bodies, and in every area of our lives
and as we hear the Word today we give place to its power
to work mightily in us and I'll never be the name, in Jesus name, Amen."
The highest vision for every church is the Great Commission recorded in Matthew 28-18-20.
"And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
For Jesus said, "Upon this rock I will build My church and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it."
Psalm 127:1 says, "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it..."
All other visions are secondary.
Therefore, the secondary vision is that
at Prevailing Word Ministries, we believe and confess Acts 19:20.
Tenets of Faith
Tenets of Faith
We believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God.
We believe that there is Three that bears record in heaven. God, the Father. God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit. These Three are One. We believe that these Three are distinct Persons, yet unified in purpose; incapable of a mistake, error, and sin. They are Perfect in ALL Their ways.
We believe that man sinned in the Garden of Eden through disobedience by the devil that deceived Eve. As a result of the fall in the Garden, man is imperfect, finite, capable of mistakes, error, and sin. We believe that the Holy Father concluded that all have sinned and missed the mark, falling short of the glory of God and is in need of a Savior.
We believe that God, the righteous Judge, sentenced man to die and that the righteous requirement of a Just and Holy God demanded and required the shedding of sinless blood to redeem man from his sins.
We believe that God demonstrated His love for man in sending His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus, to die for our sins. Should man willfully refuse such a great salvation offered by God, all unbelievers will be eternally separated from the presence of God and be cast into a literal hell called the lake which burns with fire and brimstone forever, after the Great White Throne Judgment.
We believe that there is no automatic election to the kingdom of heaven or automatic separation into hell but every man must willingly choose to be saved by His grace or willfully reject God's offer of salvation by His grace.
We believe that God raised the Lord Jesus from the dead by His resurrection power and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of majesty, where He ever lives to make intercession for us.
We believe that sinners must repent or change their minds about God and sin. We believe that all sinners can be justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, once they've repented of all sin, received forgiveness, and received Jesus as the Only Potentate, Lord, and Savior.
We believe that all believers are eligible to receive the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives the utterance. We believe that the speaking with other tongues is the believer's spirit man praying by the Holy Spirit.
An Ex-Gay Affirming Church
An Ex-Gay Affirming Church
In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare that we are an EX-GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH. The sexually immoral events that confront truly born again believers in Christ, compels us to make an unequivocal Biblical statement to never condone that which God is against.
Therefore, we at Prevailing Word stand behind the word of God and take this stance:
We at Prevailing Word Ministries will err on the side of being Biblically correct and be politically incorrect. We much rather seek to please God than to displease God. We fear God than to fear man any day of the week, 24/7.
We will always welcome those that are bound in any sin, including the sin of homosexuality. To minister to all that come to our local church the truth of God's Word with the love of God, while standing firm and immovable in the truth.
We will always stand for the Biblical correctness embedded in the Word of God. To boldly declare the established pattern of male and female, husband and wife, and holy matrimony between male and female, copulating to have children and Biblically raising a family.
We will never apologize for standing in the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor retreat from those that insist in aggressively pushing the LGBT agenda in an attempt to silence our righteous voice, to legislatively force this local church to turn its back on the Most Holy God and His Word, the Holy Bible.
Prevailing Word Ministries is an EX-GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
