What we believe

We pray together out loud because...

...they lifted up their voice to God in one accord. Acts 4:24

 

We lift our hands in praise because...

The Bible says, Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. Psalm 134:2

 

We sing with all our heart because...

In the Bible we read, Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice and sing praise. Psalm 98:4

 

We play musical instruments because...

2 Samuel 6:5 says, ...and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments.

 

We clap and shout unto God because...

In the Bible it says, O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. Psalm 47:1

 

We dance in the Spirit because...

Psalm 150:4 says, Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.

 

We anoint with oil for divine healing because...

In the Bible we read, Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14

 

We baptize in the name of Jesus Christ because...

In the Bible we read, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

Also see: Acts 8:16, Acts 10:48, Acts 19:5; all these fulfill Matthew 28:19.

 

We believe in receiving the Holy Ghost because...

In the Bible we read, For the promise is unto you and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Acts 2:39

The evidence of this experience is speaking in heavenly or other tongues. See Acts 2:4, Acts 10:46, Acts 19:6.
