Welcome to our app!

Welcome message enclosed.

Hi, We welcome you to the Sword Ministries New App. We meet every Monday night at the Gateway Building Auditorium (except for certain holidays when the building is closed). We are not affiliated with any church or denomination; we are just part of the Body of Christ, made up of born-again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is very clear that the only way to be in the family of God is by faith in Jesus Christ. We warmly invite you to attend the Bible study and grow in Jesus with us. We begin by worshipping the Lord and then start the study. It seems that many churches to- day have abandoned the Word of God for the words of men; at many services and studies bringing your Bible is not necessary because so little is taught from it. Our calling from the Lord is to teach the Word of God, going through verses from both the Old and New Testaments, comparing Scripture with Scripture, so that the Spirit may teach us. God tells us in ACTS 17:11 to search the Scriptures daily to see if what is being taught is true; so we are all called to be ‘Bereans’ and know what God says in His Word. If you are looking to grow in Jesus and His Word, come and join us. We truly use the Bible and search His Word together and allow the Holy Spirit to teach us. The free- dom and grace in Christ is truly His gift to us all. We believe the only source of truth, accountability, and authority for the church is the Bible; in fact Jesus makes it very clear about church hierarchy; Jesus is the Head, and the rest of us are not! Jesus said that if you want to be the greatest in the church, you need to be the greatest servant. Radical words! If you are saved, come and bring your Bible, an open heart and spirit to worship the Lord and hear from Him through the study of His Word. We can only grow in Him as we learn His Word and put into practice what He says. We all grow together as we go through the Bible. If God has put on your heart ministry opportunities, feel free to share them with the group; as the Holy Spirit leads us we can all be part of the mighty working of God in this area that He has put us. If you have never asked Jesus to forgive your sins by His shed blood, now is the time to repent, and believe, and ask Jesus into your life. The Bible teaches us that when we genuinely repent and receive Him into our lives, He forgives our sins, makes us a brand new creation in Christ, and gives us the Holy Spirit! It is so important to fellowship with other believers, so we invite you to come and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Great Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please e-mail us (swordministries@aol.com) if you have any questions, or better yet, stop in on Monday evening and see us. Jesus changes lives; Jesus changes lives; Jesus changes lives; Jesus changes lives; He is the answer to everything; come and worship Him with us!

Statement of Faith

of Sword Ministries

WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, that He lived a sinless life, that He died for each individual sinner, and He rose on the third day and ascended into heaven. (Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15 1 Cor. 15:1-4) WE BELIEVE in salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ alone. All who receive Jesus as Lord and Savior are born-again (new creations) and will live forever with God. (Col. 1:14; Romans 3:21-26; John 3:3,7; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 2:6,7) WE BELIEVE in the Trinity. One God, existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:1-3; John 1:1-4; Acts 5:1-4) WE BELIEVE in the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of the 66 books of the Bible, which is the Word of God, and the only Authority for the Church. (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21) WE BELIEVE in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit upon salvation, and the supernatural gifts of the Spirit that He, as Sovereign God, distributes to all born-again believers. (Romans 8:9; 1 Cor. 12:1-7) WE BELIEVE in the eternal blessedness in the presence of God for the believer, and the eternal damnation of the lost. (John 3:35,36; 5:28,29; Rev. 21:1-8) WE BELIEVE God is love, and His love was shown perfectly in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (1 John 4:8; Heb. 1:1-3; John 10:30; 14:7-11) WE BELIEVE God is seeking worshipers to worship Him in spirit and in truth, and in His presence is fullness of joy. (John 4:23,24; Psalm 16:11) WE BELIEVE Jesus will return to the Earth to end the Great Tribulation, and will rule from the nation of Israel, and restore the Jews into their own land in fulfillment of God’s Word. (Rev. 19:11-21; Luke 1:31-33; Matt. 24:29-31; Ezek. 36:17-38) WE BELIEVE in the pre-tribulation appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ for the rapture of His Church. (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1:10; 5:9)
