Kingdom Youth Conference is a fresh new youth event designed to impact students and leaders. We provide four key ministry thrusts throughout the weekend designed for long-term results:
- Present Christ vividly and unmistakably.
- Exhort, Encourage and Equip students to actually walk out their faith in “real-life”
- Create an atmosphere where the anointing of God can flow.
- Provide hands-on learning opportunities so that students can put their faith into practice immediately while seeing themselves in God’s big picture.
In addition to great ministry moments for students, we have tools designed for leaders and parents to grow. We encourage youth leaders and parents to be involved in ministry to their students throughout every session and in each ministry moment. We also have special sessions designed for leaders and parents to continue ministry all year long.
What We Believe
It is the testimony of both the Old and New Testaments and of the Christian Church that God is both One and Triune. The biblical revelation testifies that there is only one God and that He is eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
GOD THE FATHER
God the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things, and He created the universe in love. He created man in His own image for fellowship and called man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.
Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him, all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures—God and man—in one person.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord, and giver of life, who was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We affirm that the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, is alone the only infallible, inspired Word of God and that its authority is ultimate, final and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.
Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus as their personal Savior. Healing—body, soul and spirit—and all of God’s provisions for His saints are provided for in the atonement, but these must be appropriated.
The Word of God declares clearly that salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is effected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification) and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Savior (regeneration). The new life in Christ includes the privileges of adoption and inheritance in the kingdom of God’s beloved Son. Salvation is an act of free will in response to God’s personal love for mankind. It is secure in the eternal, unchanging commitment of God who does not lie and is forever the same. Salvation should produce an active lifestyle of loving obedience and service to Jesus Christ our Savior.
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
We believe that the Scriptures portray the life of the saint in this world to be one of balance between what is imputed to us as Christians and what is imparted to us according to our faith and maturity. Hence, God’s provision for His children is total, and the promises are final and forever. The shortcomings of the individual and of the Church are because of the still progressing sanctification of the saints. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests, and warfare against a spiritual enemy. For those abiding in Christ until their deaths or His return, the promises of eternal blessing in the presence of God are assured. To remain faithful through all circumstances of life requires dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a willingness to die to personal desires and passions.
The goal of the Church is to make disciples of all nations and to present the saints complete in Christ. The five-fold ministry of Ephesians 4 governs the Church, the offices of elder and deacon, as well as other offices mentioned in scripture. Church policy is a balance between congregation and eldership authority, emphasizing the final authority of the Church leadership. It is essential to the life of the Church that scriptural patterns of discipline are practiced and that oversight for Church discipline, individual and corporate, is exercised by the leadership of the Church.
BAPTISM & THE LORD’S SUPPER
The Word of God enjoins on the Church two perpetual ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ. The first, baptism, is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It is identification with Jesus and is affected in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again; it is a sign of our participation in Him. Both institutions are restricted to those who are believers.
We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ.
Our Core Values
Our Values are based on the principle of reaching people in Word and in deeds with the life-changing message of the Gospel and bringing people into the presence of God through exceptional, anointed and spirit filled worship. We believe that having values helps us develop a unified sense of commitment in how we do ministry. These values are in no particular order and they are all important. In any partnership, new and existing partners must stand in agreement with our values.
THE LEADING AND PRESENT DAY WORKS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is at work in the earth today. We strive to be yielded Him, His direction and choose to lay down our agenda for His. The Holy Spirit is not spooky, weird or eccentric. He is a perfect gentleman, and whose indwelling empowers believers to live a Godly life as evidenced in Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such, there is no law.”
We just LOVE people!
We take thoughtful and responsible care of God’s money and the goods and resources He has entrusted us with. (Matthew 25:20-21)
FUN AND COVENANT RELATIONSHIPS
We love to live, laugh and have fun. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We love each other “warts and all” and believe that community matters. We serve a covenant keeping God who has great plans for us! (Ps. 89:34; Jeremiah 29:11)
We believe The Lord deserves our best. We, through His grace, reach for exceptional and uncompromised quality in all our endeavors. We take the time to plan things out and execute at a high-level through good follow up and follow through. (Colossians 3:23-24)
As a team, we take time to create an environment for the Anointing of God to flow. We value our ministry team and those called to minister alongside us. We take the time to set the stage behind the scenes so people can be at their best and minister most effectively.
WORSHIP AND THE WORD
The Word works! It is the basis for doctrine reproof and growth. We seek to worship in spirit and in truth.
KINDNESS AND GRATITUDE
Our hearts are full of thanksgiving! We believe that kindness and gratitude are powerful in ministry and God’s Kingdom. (John 13:35; Mark 12:30-31; Prov. 15:1; Ps 100:4)
Our words matter. The Bible says we can have what we say (Mark 11:23-24) we choose to say what the Word says. We speak faith-filled, God filled words!
UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
We are KINGDOM minded. We major on the Word. We know that there is more that unites us than divides us. There is power when the body of Christ comes together! (Matthew 18:18-20; Deut 32:30) We will NOT allow or permit a spirit of division in any shape or form.
