Apostolic & Prophetic

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; Ephesians 2:20


Who we are:

We are an Apostolic and Prophetic training embassy.  Our teachings are birthed or replicated from the doctrine of God’s Holy Apostles.  We are here to worship God, love, and serve as a resource to further the gospel of Jesus Christ along with equipping individuals for ministry.

What we believe:

We believe firmly in the trinity which is God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.  Jesus is our savior and by him there is no other means of salvation (Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved Acts 4:12).

We believe in the leadership of the five-fold ministry (11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in the manifestations of God’s promises, revelation, and the prophetic.  When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a new person inside.  The old passes away, and a new life has begun (17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new 2 Corinthians 5:17).  With that being said, it’s important to be born again with The Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of us.  It is our belief and God’s promise that The Holy Spirit will guide us in all truth 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Ephesians 5:18. 

Character is very important to us.  In fact, God promotes his character all throughout the Bible.  We attempt to model what we’ve been taught concerning the truth of God’s spirit.  Therefore, we are firm believers in accountability, integrity, respect, giving, and edifying!

Our Aim:

Our aim is to acquaint individuals and families with God so that a healthy relationship with him is developed through revelation teaching of His (God) word (Bible).  We like to minister to the whole man-that those will discover their true identity in Christ as well as gifts, skills, talents, calling and purpose.  Our goal is to empower individuals through elite apostolic training.

We are here to assist individuals and families on how to obtain their spiritual inheritance, walk in the dominion against wicked principalities, become skilled in spiritual warfare, troubleshoot and resolve spiritual conflicts.  Our goal is to disciple and prepare you for the working of the ministry(ies) and life in abundance.  We understand that life is a ministry within itself so it is our mission to help you gain a Biblical understanding of how to live it peacefully, lovingly, hospitably, and abundantly.
