What We Believe

 Who We Are:

Word For Life Ministries is a church, a body of believers in Christ, established and founded upon the Word of God.  We are a vibrant, Bible believing, water-baptized and Spirit-filled church whose praise and worship unto God cannot be hindered or dictated by life's circumstances.  We identify our faith with that of the first church established on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2) and founded upon the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Apostles' Doctrine.

Our Teaching & Beliefs:

...We believe there is ONE GOD and Father, who is Infinite in Power, Holy in Nature, revealed to us as the Father in creation, as the Son Jesus in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in His grace and that in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily...

Living a Holy life is more than just living morally sound. It means adhering to and following the examples that God has demonstrated through the Word so that we can live an abundant life free from sin...

...We Believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will return again to catch His Church, the Body of Christ, away with Him to live eternally.  To this end we persuade mankind to become lovers of God and obedient doers of His Word.
