It is important to us that we enjoy our Christian life together with other believers free from gender bias, age bias, racial prejudices, pre-conceived doctrinal errors and ill-founded opinion. Therefore, we learn the scriptures in what God called a “rightly-divided” way (II Timothy 2:15). The Bible interprets itself (II Peter 1:20). We CAN know what God means in His word and wants for our lives.
Another very important element of our relationship with God and each other is the Holy Spirit. PowerHouse and Free Them Ministries are unapologetic about our fervency in flowing in the Holy Spirit. John 4:23-24, But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is a Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
Here is a synopsis of our Statement of Faith:
* We believe in the authority of the Godhead consisting of:
-- God the Father who is Spirit (John 4:24)
God with us who is Jesus Christ, Emmanuel (Matthew 1:23, John 1, John 3:16), who is the Son of God, and
God the Holy Spirit which empowers us to manifest God's power (I Corinthians 12) and the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)
We believe God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth and spoke to holy men by His Spirit who therefore wrote the word of God. The scriptures, as God gave them, are infallible and without error and represent God's instruction and will for our lives.
We believe Jesus died as a substitutionary payment for the sins of the world, that He is the Lord and that God raised Him from the dead. (Romans 10:9-10, Hebrews 2:9) Every human needs to be reconciled to God through accepting Jesus as Lord.
We believe the Holy Spirit is our comforter, our teacher and guide (John 14:26, 15:26). We believe in the present open operation of the power of the Holy Spirit as seen among other scripture, in I Corinthians 12 and does include the ability and God-given authority to speak in tongues and interpret. I mention this manifestation specifically because many denominations have chosen to remove this from their experience in the Holy Spirit and have taught against it.
We believe you have the right to know and understand all of the Scriptures. We believe you have the right to know about and experience all the power of God through the Holy Spirit.
