Statement Of Faith | What We Believe...
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the son and the Holy spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Gen. 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1;2; 2 Corinthians 13:4;
Human beings were made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Humans are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, we are marred by disobedience toward God called sin. This separates human beings from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalme 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Jeremiah 17:9; Isaiah 59:1-2; Rom. 3:10-23
We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; 5:24-30; 17:3; Romans 6:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Jude 7; Revelation 20:15; 21ff
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins for all humanity by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-18; 14:6-20; Hebrews 1:2; 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:13-16; Titus 2:11-14
Salvation is a gift from God to humanity. The shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation. Human beings can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can people be saved from sin’s penalty. Holy Wow Ministries is an evangelical ministry that seeks to share this hope found only through Jesus Christ.

About Eternal Security
Because God give his followers eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.

About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to all humanity. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, the Bible is truth without error.
2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 3:15, 16; John 5:39; Exodus 24:4; Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 12:6; 119:11, 105, 160; Proverbs 30:5.
The Christian Life
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself and should, by the power of the Holy Spirit, allow Christ to manifest His life through him to God's glory. By ever increasing obedience to The Word of God, each believer should mature and progressively becoming more like Jesus. In the power of the Spirit, each believer should strive to live a holy life; not fulfill the lusts of the flesh; witness for Christ; making disciples fullfill the great commission; and bear fruit to the glory of God. Gal 2:20; 1 Peter 1:15-16; 2 Cor 5:14-15; Rom 6:11-13; Eph 2:10; John 15:8, 16
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which is the Head and whose members are those who truly received Christ by faith. The local church is a tangible expression of the body of Christ in a particular location and practice the following ordinances: baptism and The Lord's Supper. Holy Wow Ministries is a non denominational ministry and believes that all members of the body of Christ are united in Christ by the same Spirit, and should live in harmony, love and unity, being intent on the same purpose and live our lives according to God's Word alone.
