Breaking Free Revival Center

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living.
  2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and man. He died on the cross for our sins. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest, Advocate, and Head of the Church on earth, His Body.
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore lost our perfect relationship with God. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man’s salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  5. We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man’s works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
  1. We believe in a regenerated church membership: that is, persons old enough to understand their need for Jesus Christ and, of their own free will, accepted Him as their Lord and Savior.
  2. We believe that baptism is a command of Scripture that signifies a new birth in Christ. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross. These are sacraments and ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age. They are not, however, to be regarded as means for man’s salvation.
  3. We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous living and service for Him in establishing His Kingdom while waiting for His return.
  4. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.
  5. We believe in the autonomy of Breaking Free Revival Center. This church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.

Pastor Lana provides executive leadership for the Children’s Ministry, Food Distribution, Ushers, Hospitality, and intercessory prayer teams.
