what we believe

At Overcoming by Faith Ministries, we believe that there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Son of man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, He is seated at the right hand of God on High.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, Salvation that comes through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection; Baptism and Communion (Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior), and the Lord’s Supper.

We believe in the Great Commission, to go into all the world, baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey HIS commandments.
