Our Beliefs

Doctrinal Stance of Prevailing Word Church


We believe the Bible has absolute authority as the infallible Word of God.


We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His atoning death and burial,

His resurrection from the dead, and His ascension into Heaven.


We believe there is salvation in no other name but Jesus Christ, as the Holy Spirit cleanses us;

this salvation is a free gift from God and cannot be worked for or otherwise earned.



We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a separate work of grace

subsequent to the salvation experience.


Every believer can be filled to overflowing with His Spirit and

speak with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.


We believe in divine healing by the power of the Spirit of God

through the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, the spoken Word uttered in faith,

and through the laying on of hands.


We believe in the new birth, eternal life, Hell, and eternal retribution.


We believe, in the name of Jesus, that signs and wonders will follow them that believe,

i.e., healing the sick, casting out demons, and rebuking contrary winds and seas.


We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture or catching away of all born again believers

who have made Jesus Christ the Lord of their lives.


We believe there is one God and that He manifests Himself in three ways

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Even though these are three distinct purposes, there is only ONE GOD.


Although we understand that all who live Godly in Christ Jesus will likely

face persecution for their faith and that there are challenges to overcome in a fallen world,

we do not believe that our God of love causes or allows sickness, disease, loss or

other forms of evil to come on a believer in order to further his or her spiritual growth.


Rather, we believe that the Holy Spirit is the one who leads, guides, corrects, directs,

and teaches us through reading of the Word, preaching, the leadership of the church,

the fellowship of believers, and prayer.


We believe that God established the family unit at creation as stated in Genesis 2:18-25

and as upheld by Jesus Christ in Mark 10:6-9 and elsewhere.


God created a biological man/male and biological woman/female and gave them unique

but complementary skills, talents, nurturing abilities, and perspectives.


According to these same scriptures, marriage is defined as one man and one woman

joining together in covenant by stating their vows of commitment to each other before God.


We believe all forms of sexual intimacy outside the boundaries of this definition are sin,

e.g., heterosexual relationships before marriage, adultery, homosexual relationships.


We believe life begins at conception and is valuable and worthy of full protection at every stage.
