what we believe

Divine Ministries is a Bible-based church, in that we seek to base

all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible

or on biblical principles. Based on Scripture, we believe the


Our Fundamental Doctrine

We believe in the Bible standard of full salvation, which is

repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the

Father the Son and the Holy Spirit for the remission of sins, and

the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking

with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.


About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for

salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)


About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His

Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God

manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy

6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)


About Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by

grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

(See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)


About the Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins,

was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians

1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the

Name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).

(See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)


About Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy

life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The

supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the

church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I

Corinthians 12:8-10.)


About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end

will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous

will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I

Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.)

Doctrine simply means the teaching of God’s Word. In our day,

most people do not want sound doctrine, but they want preachers

who will make them feel good (II Timothy 4:3). Nevertheless, we

must love, cherish, and obey the Word of God. Merely knowing

and accepting the truth is not enough.

The Church

We believe the church is a hospital, where individuals

come to heal, to grow, and to be made whole. Just like any

hospital would, we receive any and all, no matter their background

or previous experience. Simply put, you are welcome here, and we

believe you belong here!


Our Worship

You may have heard that Pentecostals (which is

what we are) are lively in their worship. That would be correct!


While it may not be what some are used to, we are demonstrative

in our worship and praise, which is encouraged in the Word of God

and is a natural response to both God’s greatness and His grace in

our lives. We love to worship!


Our Family

Just like in any local church, at DM, we truly believe

that we are a church family. In essence, we do life together. We

pray for one another, care for one another, and serve one another

to the best of our ability. Oftentimes, individuals enter our doors

looking for a church but leave with a family. That is our desire for

you as well.
