​Article I. OUR CORE COVENANT
Section 1.01HERE ARE 9 TENANTS OF OUR BASIC FAITH AND IN OUR BELIEFS:
(a) In the One true and living God who eternally exists in manifestation of Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; these three are one
(b) In the Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture
(c) In the original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant
(d) In the virgin Birth, sinless life atoning death, triumphant Resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Second Coming, and eternal Kingdom reign
(e) In the justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body
(f) In the Ordinance of Baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ, and of the Lord's Supper
(g) In the baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its mission in the world
(h) In the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world
(i) In Christ's leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the unity, maturity and growth of the Church


Article II. OUR ACTS OF COVENANT
Section 2.01 We will be obedient to the first and second greatest Commandment: Matt 22: 37-39, “Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Section 2.02 We will Glorify God in all that we do, 1Corinthians 6:20: “for you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.”

Section 2.03 We Believe Jesus Christ are the Supreme Being over all creation and we submit to His authority as Lord and Savior over heaven and earth for all eternity. “All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth," Matthew 28:18.

Section 2.04 With Christ all-powerful authority He has given His Church (His disciples) we have a mandate to turn the world upside down with the gospel and to teach them to observe all things, everything Jesus Christ has taught His Church (disciples). ● "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world," Matthew 28: 19-20.

Section 2.05 We will spread the gospel while having all things in common taking care of the needs of the people. "We will advance the Kingdom for Change Real Change," at the grassroots, Acts 2:42-47!

Section 2.06 We will not depend on the Government for change but on the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. Ps 118:9● God said, "It is better to put your trust in him than to put confidence in princes." Our government is noble but our God is "Lord of Lords and King of Kings."

Section 2.07 We will go house to house while breaking bread, in fellowship and bring souls to Jesus as he adds to the Church, Acts, 2: 42-47

Section 2.08 We will be that beacon on the mountain that light for the whole world to see and every man will flock to it too receive change, real change.

Section 2.09 We believe only in the supernatural power of God and we put all our hope, faith, and trust in Him and no one else. The Power of the Holy Spirit: Acts 1: 5, “For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.” Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Romans 15: 13, “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Section 2.10 His anointing leads us to do supernatural things in the earth. God called us too: "To preach the gospel to the poor; bring healing to the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And this day is the scripture fulfilled in your ears," Luke 4: 18, 19, 21. [King David did Similarly, I Sam 22: 1,2 and developed the army of God]

Section 2.11 Therefore, the time is now to Forcefully Advance the Kingdom of God because this is the acceptable year of the Lord, and God adding to the Church daily. "Luke 16:16, The law and prophets were until John; since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man "presseth" into it, KJV

Section 2.12 We have highly set apart views and interest that must and will start and end with the "word of God." Eph. 4: 4-6 "There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called—one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Jesus Christ is the Word! Matthew28:20a "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word and He was with God and was God
Section 2.13 The Holy Spirit comes on His people like fire to give them the power to overcome the world operating under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:15, “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” John 20:22-23, “And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever sins ye retain they are retained (MEANING NOT IN ENGLISH BUT TO TAKE DOMINION WITH STRENGTH AND POWER OVER PEOPLE SINS). This is the Holy Spirit with Power in our lives, "Everyone born of God overcomes the world," John 5:4, "and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith."

Section 2.14 We believe we are more than conquerors, Ro. 8:37 and if God is for us who can be against us, Ro. 8:31.

Section 2.15 We have Power over Satan and we are never defeated, we have the Victory! OUR VICTORY WALK: Ro. 8:37-39, "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Section 2.16 God's people will be known by all the works of the anointing of the Mighty Holy Spirit working in our lives. I Cor. 12:7, But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. I Cor. 14:1, Follow After charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. I Cor. 12: 31, But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way. [LOVE-CHARITY] Ro. 12:5-8 Ministries of the Gifts (Weymouth New Testament version), so collectively "we form one body in Christ," while individually we are linked to one another as its members. But since we have special gifts which differ in accordance with the diversified work graciously entrusted to us, if it is prophecy, let the prophet speak in exact proportion to his faith; if it is the gift of administration, let the administrator exercise a sound judgment in his duties. The teacher must do the same in his teaching; and he who exhorts others, in his exhortation. He who gives should be liberal; he who is in authority should be energetic and alert; and he who succors' the afflicted should do it cheerfully.

Section 2.17 We believe God's mighty Kingdom exploding all over the world with His mighty power operating on top of the world by rising above the world and its old generation of false teaching. (The New Jerusalem, Mount Zion) Is. 2:2, Mi. 4:1,2, "But in the last day's it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow to it. And many nations shall come, and say, come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the work of the Lord from Jerusalem."

Section 2.18 We will live a life of Regeneration. Titus 3:5, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.” Romans 12:2, “and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” I Peter 1:3, 4, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” Luke 9:23,24, “And he said unto them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.”

Section 2.19 We will see people breaking drug addictions, alcoholism's, the Spirit of fear and demonic spirits "will be broken, cast out and defeated." Explosions of the Holy Spirit are taken place everywhere! Explosions of the Holy Spirit: To preach the gospel to the poor To bring healing to the broken hearted To preach deliverance to the captives The recovering of sight to the blind (blind to the power, the will and the promises of God) To set at liberty them that are bruised And to preach the acceptable year of the Lord And this day is the scripture fulfilled in your ears LUKE 4: 18, 19, 21.

Section 2.20 We will praise and worship in Spirit and in truth in the Spirit of the Lord while enjoying the favor of all the people. Act. 2:47, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the "Lord added" to the church daily such as should be "saved." John: 4:24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Section 2.21 We are an Apostolic Ministry (Ephesians 4:11) which is the mandate for the Church of Jesus Christ starting in the Book of Acts. “And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelist; and some, pastors; and some, teachers; for the unity maturing, and for the growth of the church.
