About the Pastor
David Rose has been a Christian for over 19 years after being delivered from Drugs and the Occult. The same year he was delivered, he was also filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. David received his Associate's Degree from Grace Bible College in 1995 and his Bachelor's Degree from Kings College in 2010. God has given him a vision to raise up an Army for the Lord. The congregation is not called to be pew setters or to participate in man-made programs, but we are all called as saints to become equipped through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God and to learn how to set the captives free and to be used of God to fulfill the Great Commission.
David operates in the office of Prophet, Evangelist and pastor.
His passion is in the study of revival and end time prophecy. God has told David to follow Jesus and the forefathers of faith, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake, A. A. Allen, F. F. Bosworth, Charles Finney, John Wesley and others that moved in the power of God.
In order for God to bring a revival, we must do what they did, we must believe the word
like they did and we must act on the word like they did. True faith requires action.
David is happily married to Sheila who is the head of the
worship team. They have been married now for over 18 years
and are still just as in love with each other as the day they met.
Sheila Rose is the head of the Praise and Worship Team. She is a very anointed singer and has a way of drawing us all into God's Holy presence. Sheila operates in the office of an evangelist and moves very strong in the spirit of discerning of spirits and words of knowledge. The Praise and Worship Team is open to individuals who have musical talent and are born again.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Jesus is the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever!
The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God and will of God.
Trinity - That God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are Co-equal and eternal. That Jesus is begotten of the Father yet has co-existed with the Father from the beginning. The Holy Spirit (Ghost) is the third person of the trinity and proceeds forth from the Father and the Son.
Fall of Man - Man was created in the image of God. Man through Adam's transgression (sin) fell and sin came into the world and the control of the earth was transferred into Satan's hands until Christ Jesus came and purchased it back.
Salvation - When a person is born again, he must first realize that he has sinned against a Holy God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). When he genuinely feels remorse for his sins and feels the conviction of the Holy Spirit upon his life, he must then repent from (turn completely away from all known sin) and make Jesus Christ the Lord of his life (obey God's Holy Word). He must die to self so that Jesus can live in him. From that point forward he will be led by the Holy Spirit and will desire to follow after Jesus and become more like him on a daily basis. This free gift of Salvation was given to man from God through the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross of Calvary. The law shows a sinner where he stands with the one true and Holy God and when a person realizes that they have sinned against God, is given the opportunity to receive grace (undeserved favor) through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Eph. 2:8) Our obedience to the Lord is evidence of our salvation. (Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19, Hebrews 5:9, 1 John 2:3-6, 1 John 3:1-6)
Water Baptism is being fully immersed in water signifying burying the old man and raising up of the new man and is done only after being born again. This shows that the believer is now dead to sin and alive to God through faith in Christ. (Matt. 28:19, Rom. 6:4, Rom. 10:9,10, Col. 2:12)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit - John the Baptist stated in Matthew 3:11 that Jesus would baptize us in the Holy Ghost (Spirit) and with Fire. Acts 1:8 says "But ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you..." This experience is always accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. (Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Acts 2:38 & 39) Tongues is speaking in a heavenly language, one that we may or may not understand. Sometimes a person will speak in another known language without ever having studied that language. That is the Holy Spirit speaking through them for a purpose.
Sanctification - The Bible teaches that without Holiness no man will see the Lord. We believe that the doctrine of sanctification is a definite, yet progressive work of grace, starting at the time of conversion. The new believer will put to death all that he knows to be sin against God and begin to follow Jesus in obedience and faith. (1 Thess. 5:23, 2 Cor. 3:18) Then the Holy Spirit will do a mighty work changing the person's character to be more like Jesus.
Divine Healing is for all, and healing is for physical, mental and emotional ills. Healing is wrought by the power of God through the Holy Spirit and by the Word of God. It is provided for in the Atonement of Jesus Christ and is still happening today. (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matt. 8:16-17, 1 Peter 2:24, James 5:14-20)
Vaccines - God's word is very specific about mingling or mixing blood (animal with human). Vaccines are produced with animal tissue and God warns us not to mix human blood with animal. The Bible teaches that life is in the blood and that God's people are not to mix human biology with animal. (Leviticus 17:14) The Bible tells us not to eat blood so it goes without saying that we are not to pump animal blood "DNA" through our bodies. The Bible teaches us that children are a gift from God (1 Tim. 5:8) Some vaccines are produced also using aborted baby cells. To partake in vaccines is to support the individuals and government's views that we no longer have to have respect for the sanctity of life. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we are not to defile it with chemicals, dead animal cells and or aborted fetal cells. Therefore, we as a Christian Fellowship are opposed to any kind of vaccination. This would violate God's law and, therefore, would be in direct disobedience to His Holy Word. Whether to use vaccines or not is left up to each persons own conviction.
Other Major doctrines of this Body include: Celebrating The Lords Supper, Living Holy, Tithing (sowing and reaping), Deliverance (from demonic oppression as well as demonic possession), Gifts of the Spirit, Resurrection of the Just and the Unjust (the one to life and the other to eternal damnation), Heaven (eternal home of those born again) Hell (eternal home of those who reject Jesus), the Return of the Lord Jesus for His Bride (church), Heavenly Angels (who do God's work) and Fallen Angels (those who rebelled against God and followed Satan), New Heaven and Earth and the 1000 year millennial reign.
Ministry in the Fellowship - In order to minister in our fellowship, one must meet certain obligations: a person must be in agreement with our statement of faith (above), with the exception of section (9). They must live a holy life and set a good example for others in the body of believers. Anyone who remains in known sin (sin according to God's word) will not be allowed to minister within the fellowship or hold any position within the fellowship. However, we do encourage anyone who has not broken away from sin to continue to come to church and learn more about Jesus and the Word of God.
