The primary focus at El Shaddai Christian Assembly is the Word of God in its entirety. We believe that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation, but came as holy men of God wrote at the unction of the Holy Spirit.1 Since the Word was given by the inspiration of God, it is profitable [valuable] for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness so that every believer may be perfect [mature], thoroughly furnished [equipped] unto all good works.2
It is the church's mission to help people be transformed and built up in every area of their lives. That can only be done by the power of the Holy Spirit through the truth of the Word. Therefore, we are committed to study, rightly divide, and obey the Word.3
The initial step in this process of personal transformation and growth is to realize the state of our existence. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.4 The wages [result] of sin is death.5 Everything and everybody - animals, plants, and people - die. But, God in His mercy and love has provided a solution - eternal life through the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus the Christ.6
Establishing a relationship with Jesus is a simple process: If we accept and believe in Jesus and all that the Word says about Him, we can be accepted by God.7 Then, our faith grows as we hear and strive to obey the Word.8
Take a moment to pray like this:
Father God, I believe that you are as real as the air I breathe. I believe that you love me in spite and despite who I am and what I have done. I believe that you sent Jesus to die for me. Please forgive all my sins, past, present, and any mistakes I might make. I repent and receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Now, please fill me with your blessed Spirit so I will have strength to keep this commitment. Help me to read and understand your Word. In Jesus' name… Amen.
If you confess these words and truly believed them in your heart, welcome to the universal Family of God, the Body of Christ! You stand cleansed and whole before all of Heaven!9
