CORE VALUE

Jesus promised that signs would follow believers and they would do even greater works than He. John 14:12-14; Acts 2:17-18; Luke 9:1-2; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:12-16.

We owe the world an opportunity to experience the power of God and an invitation to salvation because Jesus sent us into the world, just as the Father sent Him, in the power of the Holy Spirit. John 20:21-23; 1 Corinthians 2:4-5; John 17:18; 1 Thessalonians 1:5; Matthew 28:18-19; Matthew 5:14-16; Luke 10:1-9.

Nothing is impossible with God. Therefore, no person or situation is beyond His ability to bring complete restoration. Matthew 17:20; Mark 10:25-27; John 15:7; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Psalms 103:1-7; Luke 1:34-37.

We believe all can be healed because Jesus demonstrated the Father’s will in healing all the sick and demonized He encountered. Matthew 4:23; Matthew 12:15; Matthew 14:14; Luke 9:11; Acts 10:38; Psalm 103:3-4; Matthew 14:24-33; Acts 3:1-10; James 2:14-18; Mark 10:46-52; Matthew 9:27-38.

 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Miracles did not stop with Jesus and the apostles. Hebrews 13:8; 1 John 4:17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 2:38-39; 1 Corinthians 14:1; 1 Corinthians 14:39; 1 Peter 4:7; 1 Peter 4:10; 2 Timothy 1:6-8.

The cross of Jesus does not simply make us good people; it creates a new kind of people who walk in His power and are naturally supernatural. 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 2 Peter 1:3-4; Mark 16:17-18.

The Holy Spirit gives every believer the supernatural power to witness and release miracles, signs, and wonders. John 14:12; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:16-18; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11; 1 Corinthians 2:4-5; 1 Corinthians 4:20; Matthew 10:8; John 20:21-23.

Love should be our primary motivation when we take risks to release the power of God’s Kingdom into the lives of others. 1 Corinthians 16:14; 1 Corinthians 13:1-3; Galatians 5:13; John 13:34-35; Matthew 20:26-28.

We walk as sons and daughters of God, revealing our Father’s goodness and calling others to repentance. 1 Peter 2:9-12; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Matthew 11:25-30.

Our new normal is to live a Spirit-led life and assist in establishing God’s Kingdom on earth. Acts 1:6-8; Acts 13: 1-5; John 5:19.

Injustice and works of darkness are an opportunity for God's supernatural love and power to move through us. Romans 5:20; 1 John 3:8; 1 John 4:18; Psalm 23:4-5; 1 John 4:4; Matthew 10:16 -20; Matthew 16:19.

The Father wants us to live in the fullness of the Kingdom, which means that we are to be persistent in prayer, waiting in faith for the Kingdom to break into every situation. John 10:10; Luke 18:1-8; Luke 11:1-13; Luke 12:31-32; Acts 1:4, 2:1-4; Acts 4:23-31.

We celebrate every victory, great and small, believing that every testimony of what Jesus has done creates faith and releases hope that He will do it again. In this way, a testimony is a prophecy of what Jesus is willing and able to do right now. Revelation 19:10; Romans 10:15-17; Hebrews 13:7-8; Acts 10:34-48; Psalm 44:1-5; Mark 5:18-21; Psalm 119:111; Deuteronomy 6:17-24; Deuteronomy 7:17-19; Revelation 12:10-11.

 

DON'T MISUNDERSTAND...

We are not Jesus. Colossians 1:15-20, 27; Philippians 2:6-11; Acts 3:12.

We do not pursue a relationship with God just so we can perform signs and wonders. Luke 10:17-20; Matthew 7:21-23.

Miracles are an expression of the love and power of God, not an indication that we are more important in the Kingdom. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3; Matthew 7:21-23.

If, in our passion and enthusiasm to minister, we accidentally hurt or dishonor someone, we are quick to take responsibility and humbly apologize. Philippians 2:3-4; Colossians 3:12-14; Ephesians 4:2-3; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

We do not have to strive for the grace needed to operate in signs and wonders. Galatians 3:2-5; 1 Corinthians 15:10; Ephesians 3:7-9.

The risks we take when ministering do not always result in the expected outcome. Acts 16:16-24;

We will experience resistance to the gospel and persecution as we seek to follow Christ. Acts 4:3-22; Acts 5:12 -42; Revelation 12:10-11; 2 Corinthians 11:24-25; Matthew 5:10; 2 Corinthians 4:7-12.
