We believe that God created Man & Women in His image and instituted the marriage covenant between men and women and gave them dominion over the earth
We believe that man disobeyed God and broke the fellowship and dominion he had before the fall allowing sin and death to reign
We believe that sin is passed on through the flesh and therefore the payment needed to be made in the flesh
We believe that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh coming to redeem His creation form the curse of sin and death
We believe that Jesus lived the perfect life becoming the perfect sacrifice for sin thereby paying the penalty for the original sin by the shedding of His blood and His suffering. Man freeing him now from the curse of sin and death through the shed blood of Jesus Crist
We believe that Jesus demonstrated His love for us by dying a criminals death on the cross and when He announced “it is finished” the keys to life, earth and the Spiritual realm was transferred from satan to Himself
We believe that the cross is the only way of salvation for the forgiveness of sin and wholly accepted by God demonstrated by the resurrection of Jesus ChristWe Believe That....

It was clear from the beginning that the place of sacrifice would be the place of communion!
During the plagues of Egypt the Israelites were instructed to put the blood of a slain lamb on the doorpost of their houses and the judgement of GOd would “passover” them!

Is it any wonder that the price of darkness and his cohorts shudder at the mention of the blood of Jesus Christ!
The blood dissolves any rights the Satan can claim against us
Colossians 1:9–14 NKJV
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
