Statement of Faith

  • There is one God, embodied in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt.28:19–20; Mk.12:29; Acts 5:3-4; Heb.1:1-4; Rev.1:4-6);
  • There is one mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus (I Tim.2:5);
  • Man has sinned corporately in Adam, and thereby is born into this world with an inherent sin nature in alienation from God but that through God’s grace men may transcend their sinful nature and be reconciled to God by His Sovereign Choice and through His Sovereign calling in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son (Jn.3:16; 14:6; Rom.3:23; I Cor.15:22; Eph.2:4-6);
  • Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners, becoming human flesh, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and brought the message of our only salvation from sin and reconciliation to God through Him to a sinful world (Mt.1:20; Lk.1:34-35; 4:14-21; Jn.1:14; 10:10; 14:6; I Tim:2:5);
  • Christ Jesus was rejected by that world, as was prophesied, and was crucified for our sins, paying its penalty and opening the gates of heaven to men who would confess with their mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in their heart that God raised Him from the dead (Mt.16:21; 20:28; 21:42; I Cor.15:3-4; Rom. 10:9-10);
  • Jesus rose from the dead by God’s power, thereby breaking Satan’s hold over mankind, and ascended into heaven where He is our sole advocate before a Holy God (Acts 2:24,32; 3:15; 4:10; Rom.8:2; Heb.7:25; I Jn.2:1);
  • If men believe in and confess Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, they will be spiritually born again and receive salvation, justification before God, and eternal life (Jn.1:12; 3:16; Rom.8:1-2; 10:9,13);
  • The Holy Spirit lives within each believer and can empower him to defeat sin and serve God (Jn.14:16-17; 16:7-8, 13-14);
  • There shall be a personal and imminent return of Jesus Christ to this world to claim His own and render his final judgment to men and all nations (Mt.24:31; Acts1:11; I Thess.4:16-17; Rev.16:19; 18; 22:12);
  • The just believer will spend eternity in fellowship with God, but the unjust will be doomed to everlasting damnation (Mt.25:31-46; Jn.3:36; Rev.14:9-11);
  • The commands of God as they are presented in His Word, the Holy Bible, are to be obeyed (Deut.5:29:33; 8:3,6,11; Mt.5:17-19; II Tim.3:16);
  • The responsibility of every Christian is to make the news of salvation known to as many living persons as possible (Mt.28:18-20).


This Bible Application Training will equip, encourage and engage anyone facing personal or professional challenges, stress, toxic environments or difficult workplaces by using scripture, faith-based tips and prayer. The focus will be Christ, God’s Word, the Gospel, Loving Your Neighbor and Being a Mentor. In Matthew 22:37-39, Christ said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”


To “Love Your Neighbor” in your personal and professional lives; to see your family, friends, community members and co-worker as your neighbors, to replace worldly promises with Biblical promises; to recognize Loving Your Neighbor is your personal ministry; to replace secular workplace ideology with faith-based, Christ-centered principles; to highlight the importance of Being A Mentor.
