Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

*The Bible contains 66 books. 

The Trinity

We believe there are three persons in the Godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one true, eternal God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory, although distinguished by their personal properties.

God the Father

We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe He is a member of the trinitarian understanding of God.

Our Mission

We are an ecclesiastical ministry set apart for the evangelical Christian church to train, ordain, and equip lay people for volunteer and professional chaplaincy. Educational requirements are higher for the professional Chaplain. We offer certificate educational programs, continuing education, live classroom instruction hosted at supporting churches, and life coaching to produce results in both proclaiming and living effectively for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to produce changed lives. 

We acknowledge Christ as the head of our life and ministry, submitting all our activities to His will and good pleasure. Our highest priority is proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to produce genuine followers whose lives are changed. 

We equip chaplains who serve a people group to which they are called.

Empowered Lay Ministry

We are passionate about encouraging mature believers to learn how to be on mission for Christ in community with others.
