The opportunity to be a servant for the Lord Jesus Christ is a privilege to be treasured. It has been said…

“There is nothing more challenging and difficult than service for the Lord. However, neither is there anything more glorious.”

The School of Ministry is designed to help you prepare for and enter into this wonderful opportunity. Whether you have a vision for full-time ministry or a vision for effective lay ministry within the church, this school will serve you well. We have prayerfully designed our class curriculum, ministry opportunities and outreach programs with you in mind. Our hope is to equip you for the “work in ministry.” I think you will find the school atmosphere warm, loving and encouraging. After reading through this booklet, go to the Lord in prayer. He will guide your steps! – Pastor Pat Lazovich

Doctrinal Statement:

We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all.

We believe in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

We believe JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.

We believe in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for the ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the SCRIPTURES of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice for the church today.
