NLWC believes in prayer and intercession and should be an importance in the life of a believer. We “seek first His kingdom and his righteousness” by being a praying church: teaching about prayer, opening our doors for prayer and individually seeking our Lord in prayer daily.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
2. Bible Based:
NLWC believes the Bible is the inspired Word of God and seeks direction through the Word. We value the Bible as the instruction manual for all ministry, decisions, and teaching. We seek to operate according to sound Biblical principles – raising up what is pleasing to God and pulling down strongholds according to Biblical truth. The Bible is a “lamp unto our feet”
3. Spirit Led:
NLWC seeks to be responsive to the direction of the Holy Spirit, by yielding ourselves to His leading to an ever-increasing degree. We seek to submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit in order that both the fruit and the gifts promised in the Word will become evident in us.
NLWC expects a standard of behavior whereby each covenant member will love and respect others according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. We expect righteous conduct in both our word and deed in every aspect of our lives.
5. Covenant Community:
NLWC values the prayer of Jesus for unity in (John 17:20-22). In response, we are committed to be a community of believers in covenant with God and with one another, owing each other appropriate compassion, love and loyalty. We seek the best for our brothers and sisters even to the denial of our personal gain, thereby creating unity in fulfillment of the mission.
NLWC recognizes that becoming effective in the Kingdom of God is proportionately related to the degree of servanthood that we are willing to assume. Therefore, we will serve the Lord by serving others.
NLWC expects every believer to be a faithful steward through giving their time, talent, and tithe to the service of the Lord.
(1 Corinthians 4:2)
NLWC values the freedom expressed by Paul in (Galatians 5:1), whereby we need not be dominated by any manipulative force. We recognize that legalism at times brought believers into bondage and has made the Word of God less effective. Kingdom Life Ministries strongly chooses the freedom of God’s Word and opposes the dictates of our culture.
NLWC believes that God is speaking in these latter times. This ministry will be a relevant spiritual voice that will speak truth, revelation, wisdom, warning, and direction as the Spirit directs.
10. Kingdom Oriented:
NLWC is dedicated to building the Kingdom of God beyond our own community of believers. Our focus is not exclusively to add members to our church, but to add souls to God’s Kingdom. We are submitted to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and as such are not locked into traditional patterns to achieve these goals, but are open to new and innovative methods of ministry.
11. Christian Growth:
NLWC is committed to help every covenant member mature in his or her faith walk. We are committed to discipling believers in the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as identifying and developing the spiritual ministry gifts the Lord has given every individual for the work of the ministry.
NLWC is committed in excellence in all areas of ministry. Whether in our attitudes, our administration, or our ministry we will strive to endeavor to go beyond mediocrity and produce excellence in all we do.
(Daniel 5:14; 6:3)
