STATEMENT OF FAITH


The Holy Spirit has led us to believe fully in the simple orthodoxy of the major creeds of the faith: the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds, the Augustinian and Wesleyan Confessions, etc. 

This means that for us, the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God the Father, that He died on the cross for our redemption, was raised again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He has given us His Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit that we might serve Him and His Kingdom. We believe we are called to be faithful members of His Church, regularly attending worship and submitted under the care and covering of pastors and elders. We believe scripture provides divine guidance for morality such as the Ten Commandments, definition of marriage as one man and one woman, and the consequences of sin described in Romans 1:20-31. To us, the mission of the Church is all-important—to evangelize, teach, and heal until He returns. Therefore, Elijah House remains orthodox in all respects, that we might be a faithful part of His mission to prepare God’s children to live and fellowship with the Father throughout eternity. 

In response to the dual mandates of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11, we are called to be instruments of writing, teaching, prayer ministry, and healing. We believe all teaching and healing is an expression of the love and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Neither teaching nor healing is something we do, but rather it is the work of the Holy Spirit. This is especially true in heart healing—the internal cleansing of our “vessel” by the Holy Spirit. 

Healing seems to imply that something is broken, so we need to repair it. But God does not intend to fix us—to put new patches on old garments. He means to slay us on His cross and raise us anew in Him. As prayer ministers, this calls us to constant death of “self” on the cross in order that we not lay practiced programs on people, but attempt to allow the Holy Spirit to write His lessons in the hearts of His children. He is not putting His laws in our minds, but writing them deep in our hearts. 

Sanctification is the application of the blood, cross, and resurrection life of our Lord Jesus Christto deep wounds and practices in our hearts, setting us free to walk as God intended when He created us. These are applied by consultation and prayer, but it is prayer which is the basis of all our ministry. Transformation is the process of sanctification in which the Holy Spirit transforms all our degradations to glory, our weaknesses to strengths, and our deserts to gardens of blessing.
