Relief and Prayers for Louisiana


A place where God mends the broken, strengthens the weakened and heals the hurting.

We believe the entire Bible to be the inspired, infallible Word of God, the revelation of God’s will for mankind and the divine final authority for Christian life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who is revealed in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 15:26)

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1), His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18), His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21), His miracles (Acts 10:38), His vicarious death as the only acceptable sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39), His ascension to the right hand of God as our intercessor (Hebrews 4:14), His future return in glory, first to rapture His church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) and  second, to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. (Revelation 20:6)

We recognize man’s need for repentance and acknowledge God’s gift of grace and mercy. (Romans 3:23-24; 1 Peter 1:3)

We believe in the new birth as the only means of receiving eternal life. The new birth involves a cleansing and deliverance from the penalty and power of sin. It is brought about through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ and repentance of sin. (John 3:3,5,7; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 Peter 1:18-20)

We believe in the process of spiritual development (sanctification) shaped in the believer’s life by the Holy Spirit. This growth involves daily dying to sin and living unto righteousness (Romans 6:1-23), is expressed by living a holy life (Hebrews 12:24), and will be culminated at the return of Christ. (1 John 3:2)

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a promise from the Father for every believer and is distinct and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. That speaking in tongues, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, is a physical indication of the baptism with Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4,38,39; Acts 19:4-6)

We believe in the sacraments of the church; the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26), baptism by immersion as a symbol and witness of the new birth (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22), and the washing of the saints feet. (John 13:1-17)

We believe in divine healing for the total man, spirit, mind and body, and that this healing is accomplished in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and appropriated in the believer’s life through prayer. (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:13-15)

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that His appearance will be accompanied by a bodily resurrection of those who have died. First, the righteous unto eternal life and second, the ungodly unto eternal damnation. (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)

These statements of belief are used for teaching purposes and are based off of the statement of faith found within the Church of God, in which we hold to be an official statement of our faith.
