OUR BELIEFS
THE SCRIPTURES – The Bible is the inspired Word of God
It is the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
 
THE GODHEADOur God is one, manifested in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
The Three are co-equal (Phil. 2:6). God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word, flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).
 
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTIONMan is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world
“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one.” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God.
(Rom. 5:14; Rom. 3:10; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 3:8)
 
Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Eph 2:8)
 
ETERNAL LIFE AND NEW BIRTH – Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life. (2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12, John 3:3-5)
 
WATER BAPTISM – Baptism in water is by immersion
Water baptism is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Rom, 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39). The following recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted; to wit, “On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority,    I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen.”
 
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE – A gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ
Available to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance.
(Matt. 3:11, John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4)
 
SANCTIFICATION The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord.
We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return. (Heb. 12:14; 1 Thes. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil 3:12-14; 1 Cor. 1:30)
 
DIVINE HEALING – God is still in the miracle working business!
Divine healing is available for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided in the redemption of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; Isa. 53:4-5).
 
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD – His coming is imminent!
The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, “. . .this same Jesus. . .shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.” When He comes, “. . .the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. . .” (Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 4:16-17). Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Rev. 20:6).
 
HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost
He is condemned to the Lake of Fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms “eternal” and “everlasting” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the presence of God.             (Heb. 9:27, Rev. 19:20)

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!
Testimonies of Real People with Real Needs
and Their Real God Who Responds to Faith

“I felt SO GOOD after the service!”

In the Fall of 2017 I suffered an accident that broke my ankle in seven places, resulting in two operations and seven months of recuperation and therapy.  I was just getting back into church regularly when I was diagnosed with  a compression fracture in my spine, presumably from the same accident.  When I could no longer tolerate the pain,   I had back surgery  that “cemented” my vertebrae in position, expecting this would alleviate my pain.  But I continued to experience back pain whenever I sat or stood for very long.  Weary and weak when Sunday morning came, I determined I would not miss seeing my church family again.  I developed a plan. 

I would purposefully arrive late, knowing the pain in my back would send me home within an hour.  I needed groceries, so my plan included a couple of hours in bed after I left church. Once my back pain subsided, I would go to the store.  This had been my grocery routine since my surgery: shop until the pain sent me home,  several hours of bedrest, then return to the store to complete my shopping.

When I arrived at church I was surprised to find they were still praising and worshiping God. The Lord instructed Pastor Sam to have me move to the front and just soak in His presence, which I did.  I felt God right there with me as Pastor Sam laid his hands on my ankles and prayed for them.  While he held my ankles, I experienced a heat radiating through my body, mostly in my back, which remained until 9pm that evening!  Pastor Sam also prayed that my bones would be strengthened.   I felt God’s presence and started to shake all over.  Tears of relief streamed down my cheeks as the pain subsided.  Another believer put his hand on my head and I felt strength enter me.  Later Pastor Sam anointed me with oil according to James 5:14. And I was totally healed of the Lord!   I have not had any pain in my body since that service more than four months ago! 

I left the church when the service concluded and felt SO GOOD, I went on to the grocery store, did ALL my shopping, and went home still excited, full of energy, and pain free!  Praise God!

I sure am HAPPY I dragged myself to church that morning!  And I so appreciate Pastor Sam listening to the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to lead the service.  I needed this kind of service so much.  And I am grateful to God for bringing healing, strength, and freedom from pain to my body.  I feel like a new person!

“Jesus Heals!”
 
I found Spoken Word Church Brevard through kcm.org.  God told me I needed to be in a Bible faith church, and I needed to learn the meaning of His Word.  After several telephone contacts with the Pastor, I first visited the Tuesday night Bible study. I must say, it was a blessing to find Christian believers who believed like I do.
 
Eleven or twelve years eariler, I had experienced chronic pain in my left foot that eventually led to surgery.  Unfortunately, the surgery did not relieve my great pain.  
 
After the Bible study concluded, Pastor Sam began to pray and I heard him call my name.  I sensed a warmth in my left foot and then Pastor Sam laid hands on it.  
 
Since that day more than two weeks ago, I have had NO PAIN in my foot.  Even my knees, which had been hurting, are pain free!  I have received my healing from the Lord Jesus!  Praise God!
 
Since that night, I have attended every service!  What a blessing listening to the Pastors as they preach and teach!  To God be the glory!

    Confident in Truth
    Jesus IS truth. He is the Cornerstone of our spiritual foundation. We can be confident in the Word of God because it IS Jesus.  He is the "Word made flesh Who lived among us ". He is the Rock on which the Church is built and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it, against the Church,  against YOU!

    Hunger After Him
    If you are born of God, you have a new nature. You have God's ability in you to live and conduct yourself fulfilling His original plan on the earth. The Holy Spirit came to empower the Church (you) to reveal Jesus as the Messiah to the world! Want ALL He has for you? GET HUNGRY and then get MORE hungry! He meets with those who hunger after Him.

    God Has a Plan
    From the beginning of time God established His Word, declaring His will.  His power is released in His Word. It is up to us to call, to act on the Word by faith. That which He set in motion from the beginning, which He already declared, is where He wants us to live.  Will you be a partaker, a participant in what He has already spoken?

    On Our Way
    God has chosen us to be His kids, conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. To walk in this high calling we will have to learn to walk by the Spirit and not after the flesh.  We will have to get over SELF. Self will defeat the plan of God for your life. We need to go to work on us, eagerly pursuing our high calling in Christ Jesus. We are on our way, we are growing, and we can change with the help of the Holy Spirit.

    Love By Faith
    As a believer, you have been born of God, with God's faith in you.  You have everything you need to overcome by faith in His Word.  What did He say?  We act on the Word because we know He cannot lie and we can trust Him.  Since faith works by love, we must be a people of love!  We are love children of a love God!  Put your faith to work to release God's love in you.  We are well equipped with faith and love to get the job done!

    Take Your Place
    As children of the living God we must acknowledge God for Who He is, and acknowledge who we are in Christ Jesus. He created us to rule and reign, to have authority on earth. It is time to take our place and respond to the Holy Spirit.

    Fill Your Mouth with His Word
    There is a way for you to overcome every challenge that comes your way. The enemy is a defeated foe. What he says doesn't change anything! Be confident in what God said! Arm yourself with God's Word. You are authorized by God Himself to walk in authority. Speak His Word: it is alive and powerful and it IS DOING SOMETHING! Then just laugh at the enemy!

    Thoroughly Furnished and Equipped
    The Father expects us to overcome, it is our destiny. We are well equipped! If we will follow His Word, we won't lack. We need to stick our noses in His Book and not come up for air! We can develop an excellent spirit like Daniel had. A spirit that is not moved by circumstances, but one that has confidence in our God. The laws of an entire nation were changed because one man, Daniel, would not bow but obeyed His God. There is more favor in God for you than evil set against you. Stand fast and see the salvation of God!

    Occupy Till I Come
    Even as a child, Jesus was about His Father's business. He stayed close to the Father's heart. As Christ's ambassadors, should we do any less? He commanded His disciples to "occupy till I come." Not just a suggestion but a command that empowered them to carry on His Father's business. You have been loosed, authorized and equipped to get the job done!

“Now He who supplies

seed to

the sower and

bread for food

will also supply

and increase

your store of seed and will enlarge your harvest of righteousness.  

You will be enriched in

every way so that you can be generous on every

occasion and

your

generosity

will result 

in thanksgiving

to God.”  

 2 Corinthians 9:10-11
