STATEMENT OF FAITH


 
 

We believe:

There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent - one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin,Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man.”

We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, sanctifies and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

In the ongoing sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses.

 
 

The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy—sin, lies, sickness and torment.

The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave his church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

In the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride—the church.

Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.

 
 

 
 

EKBALLO MISSION STATEMENT

 

Our mission is to prepare dozens of companies ready to be flown out on heaven's assignments, in order to secure the heavenlies for the proclamation of the Gospel unto the ends of the earth. We are believing for a reformation in modern missions: to see contending intercession in prayer and fasting pave the way for domestic revival and foreign apostolic missions. 

"He sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come. And He was saying to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Luke 10:1-2)

The Ekballo House of Prayer is the fuel and engine at the heart of the missions base where we pray the heart of our Father. The Ekballo School trains and equips young people to go out to the nations, preparing the future fathers and mothers who will lead movements and know what it is to walk intimately with the Lord.

The first year of Ekballo School establishes young people into their identity in Christ. While the second year launches students into rolls of leadership. The students' lives are marked with prayer and missions. Some graduates stay on to travel out on strategic prayer strikes, while others return home to help reproduce local and international mission bases.
