Statement of Faith

Agape Dominion’s  faith statement is as follows:

God

We believe in the one true God existing in three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the eternal deity of the Lord Jesus Christ — the Word made flesh, the personification of God’s unconditional Love and Grace.

Holy Spirit

We believe that The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Godhead and the Governor of the physical realm, convicting the unsaved of sin and the saints of righteousness.

Salvation

We believe that Salvation comes from the belief in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross at Calvary and calling upon His name and that Salvation is rescue from the consequences of sin, deliverance from demonic oppression, bodily healing, and material blessing.

The Bible

We adhere to the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God. All Scripture is either a foreshadowing or revelation of Jesus and cannot be accurately understood apart from the revelation of the Gospel.

The Gospel

We believe that the Gospel is the too-good-to-be-true-but-true-news of the unconditional Love and Grace of God in the person of Jesus. The Gospel is the revelation of the New Covenant or Covenant of of Grace. It is the power of God unto salvation.

The Kingdom of God

We believe that the Kingdom of God is the representative government of God established by Him in Genesis 1:26-28 and returned to man by Jesus Christ in Luke 12:32

Healing

We believe that it is the Will of God to provide divine health and healing to His Children, as the stripes of Jesus were the full price for our health and healing.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues and prophesying, is a gift from God to His children.

Holiness

We believe that God is fully integrated with His Word, which is the essence of Holiness (Psalm 138:2), He is sanctified, or set apart, and made us so  (John 17:17-19), and that we are sanctified and made holy by the sacrifice of Jesus (Hebrews 10:10).

Righteousness

We believe that we have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:21-22, 2 Corinthians 5:21)

Humanity

We believe every human being is created in the image and likeness of God and should be loved as we love God and ourselves.

Water Baptism

We believe in water baptism by immersion and that it is an outward show of the inward work of salvation but is not essential to it.

Marriage

We believe that marriage is the first sacred institution ordained by God and consists of a covenant between one man, one woman, and God
