OUR BELIEFS

Verbal Inspiration of the Bible

We believe the Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, to be verbally inspired of God in the original manuscripts; infallible, inerrant and God-breathed, a perfect rule of faith and practice.


The Trinity

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (1 Peter 1:2; 1 John 5:7).


The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe that God, the Son, who has always existed, became a man (without diminishing His deity) by virgin birth through Mary. He lived a sinless life and as the infinite God-Man took upon Himself the sins of all men, died in their place and satisfied God concerning their sins.

 

The Resurrection

We further believe in the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. He was then ascended and exalted to the right hand of God as the Great High Priest of all believers.


The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. His present ministry to believers also includes empowering, teaching, and leading into all truth.


Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin, the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, that man is totally depraved and, of himself, is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. Apart from faith in Jesus Christ each person remains in Adam.


Salvation

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace (apart from any works) and received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of sins. Upon receiving salvation, the person receives eternal life, and becomes a partaker of Christ's life. At the moment of faith Christ begins to indwell that person and that person begins to be in Christ. He becomes a new creation and obtains a new identity as a child of God.


Eternal Security

We believe that all who have come to reliance upon the work of Christ for their salvation will never lose this relationship.


Devil and Demons

We believe that Satan is a person who is aided by a host of evil spirit beings called demons. Their design is to destroy believers, their homes and their churches blinding the lost to the gospel. Every believer is subject to their attack but may be made victorious through Jesus Christ.


Sanctification

Each believer partaking of eternal life (Christ's life) was united with Christ and thus was spiritually crucified, buried, raised and enthroned with Christ. The old man died at that point in time. The results of co-crucifixion are enjoyed by each believer as he or she chooses to walk by the Spirit and not after the flesh. Sanctification of our behavior, then, is Christ living His life through the believer. This involves active choices to deny ungodliness and to live upright lives in Jesus Christ. 

We believe that the new covenant message of God’s grace inspires the believer to live a self-controlled, upright, and godly life characterized by the fruit of the Spirit.

220 TRAINING

The 220 Seminar/Workshop

Depending on the specific ministry office, this training opportunity may vary from one day to three days in length. This is an introductory seminar and/or workshop that presents the basics of the Galatians 2:20 message.


The 220 Course

This is a multi-month training course that typically meets once per week. Numerous topics related to forgiveness, freedom from the law, identity in Christ, and new life in Him are covered. Various instructors offer special topics throughout the multi-month period and the course includes interactive, workshop-style breakout groups and personal sharing on a regular basis. Once a person has completed The 220 Course, they can apply to participate in The 220 Internship. (Terminology used for each of these phases of training may vary depending on the ministry office.)


The 220 Internship

This is a multi-week internship designed to prepare you to become a 220 Counselor or Teacher. In this internship, you will first learn basic principles related to 220 counseling and teaching. Then you will be given the opportunity to observe 220 counseling in action. Finally, you will have the chance to implement what you learn as you engage in counseling another person under the direction of a staff member. (Again, the details related to this internship may vary from one office to the next. Please consult your local ministry office for a more specific description of their program requirements.)
