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
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
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
The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God and will of
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
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
Our fellowship began almost two years ago when the Lord
spoke to us and said that he wanted a place where the Holy Spirit could move
freely among the people to accomplish His purposes. We have given the Holy
Spirit free reign in our services. That is not to say that there is no order,
because we believe what the Bible says about keeping order in the church.
However, we are sensitive to the moving of the Holy Spirit and wait upon him to
direct and guide us.
We believe the congregation is not called to be pew
setters or to participate in man-made programs. 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, to be used of God to fulfill the Great
Commission. We are a group of believers that are tired of playing church and
want to see our community touched by the love and power of Christ. We have
exciting testimonies of physical healings and prayers being answered.
a vision to raise up an army for God to win our City to Jesus Christ. There are
people we know who are headed for the flames of Hell and we need to reach them
before it is too late. If you would like to be a part of our effort in reaching
the lost in this area, please come and join us. We will storm the gates of hell
together and win this city for the Lord.
Please join us for our weekly Sunday service. Bible study
begins at 10 AM. Prayer begins at 10:45 AM and we are lead by the Holy
Spirit from that point forward into the service.
All are welcome!
