Welcome to The Well. We pray that your experiences here are Christ centered and fulfilling.

We don't believe in debating the Word of God. We believe that each person should develope an individual relationship with Christ and allow Christ to teach you. In other words, "Don't take man's word for it, look it up, seek it out and let the Holy Spirit guide you into all truths!"

What we believe......


1) THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the
Infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason
( 2 Tim. 3:15,17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).


2) THE ONE TRUE GOD

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed
“I AM,” and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of
relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and
Holy Spirit. (Duet.6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10,11; Matt. 28:19).

3) MAN: HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION

Man was created good upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness,” But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro. 5:12-21).

4) THE SALVATION OF MAN

a) Conditions of Salvation

The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the
preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;
man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of
eternal life. (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47).

b) Evidences of Salvation

The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the
Spirit (Ro.8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness (1 Thess. 4:7: 2 Tim.1:19).

5) BAPTISM IN WATER

The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as
commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in
their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they
declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been
released to walk with Him in newness of life. (Matt.28:19; Acts 19:47,48;
Ro. 6:4).

6) THE LORD’S SUPPER (COMMUNION)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the
symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and
prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined to all believers “until He come”
( John 6:48,51, 53-57; Luke 22:19, 20; 2 Pet.1:4; 1 Cor.11:25).

7) THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER

All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the Father,
which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire. With it comes the infilling of
power for life and service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the
work of the ministry. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31. This experience is
distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the New Birth. (Acts 2:38; 10:
44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).

8 ) SANCTIFICATION PROCESS

By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, “Be ye holy,
for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be
earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word. (Heb.12:14; 1Pet.1
15, 16; 1 Thess.5:23,24; 1 John 2:6).

9) THE CHURCH

The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit,
with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each
believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the
Lamb’s Book of Life.

10) MINISTRY

Divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry have been proved by our Lord
for two fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, and (2) The edification
of the Body of Christ (Mark 15:15, 20; Eph. 4:11-13).

11) DIVINE HEALING

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the
privilege of all believers (Isa. 53:4, 5; Matt.8:16,17; Mark 16:18; John 5;14).

12) THE BLESSED HOPE

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation,
together with those who are alive and remain unto the Lord, is imminent and is
the blessed hope of the church. ( 1 Thess. 4:16; Ro. 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:
51,52).

13) THE MILLENNAIL REIGN OF JESUS

The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national
Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth are scriptural promises and
our hope. ( 2 Thess. 1:7; Rev.19:11-16; Ro.11:25; Rev.20:1-7).

14) THE LAKE OF FIRE

The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is
not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting
punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second
death (Rev.19:20; 20:10-15).

15) THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH

We, as promised in the Scriptures, look for a new heavens and new earth wherein
righteousness dwells. (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev.21:1).

16) THE GIFT OF TONGUES AND TONGUES

The gift of tongues is a spiritual gift given to some believers when they are
baptized in the Holy Spirit ( 1Cor.12:10; 12:28-30). The primary use of the gift
of tongues is for the edification of the church (Acts 2:2-4; 19:6). Tongues (prayer
language) are given to the believer for personal edification (Acts 14:2, 4).

"My Children, beloved of My Father, I challenge you to give credence to the overwhelming evidence of all I have said which is available in the canon of My word. Be of a fruitful disposition, for vexing challenges to truth are manifesting like the infestation of weeds in a garden. Worldly wisdom and vain philosophy and deceit are creeping in and stealing the word from your hearts.

Consider the higher calling and persuasion of My word. It is I who have voiced the truth from the portals of Heaven, and they of the world who conclude it is so much flotsam and jetsam on their storm tossed seas of idol worship. The doctrine of men is the doctrine of demons and it will prosper in a good ground heart just as a thorn will prosper in a garden.

I call you to purge away the thorns of doubt, unbelief and discouragement. You are blessed for believing, never having seen. This is the epitome of faith, and the crux of the matter before Me, as I have called the just to live by faith. My course is an eternal round, and the natural mind cannot conceive that there is a circular path to be followed and that all wisdom and truth originates with Me and culminates in Me. Do not be out of peace when things that perturb the natural mind are brought to the forefront of your understanding with perplexity.

I have not asked you to understand everything, but I have asked you to have believing Hearts. There is a way that seems right unto a man but the ways thereof are the ways of death. The world has an understanding that seeing is believing, but I would not have you ignorant that the higher application of this backwards imagery is evident in My Kingdom as believing is seeing.

All is not as it appears to be, and so My soon coming second advent is blasphemed by those who stand to lose in the glorious appearing. You, however, have everything to gain, so hold onto your faith and hold on to My Hand as I make you to lie down in green pastures and as I lead you beside the still waters. I will refresh you spirit, soul and body. You shall be as a tree planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth fruit each in your own season. Come to the river and drink, My people! I love you with all the passion of God, for I am He that has been ordained from before the foundation of the world to lead you in a conquering path to the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls! Amen!"
