Bishop Joshua and Ginger Niswonger have a heart to reach the lost in Jonesboro, and around the world. The bible says to go into all the world to every nation preaching the gospel and make disciples of every nation. It is their heart's desire to see every tribe and every tongue to know the love of Christ. We want a place where every person can come and be healed and grow in the maturity of God's word. A place of restoration that takes you into the purpose that God has for your life. Each season of our lives is a continued journey of discovering more of God. We value revelation and application, when combined they unfold an understanding that reveals the greater truth of God's word and spirit.

We believe the Bible is divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, the infallible revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. Rom. 15:4, 1 Thes. 2:13, 2 Tim.3:16-17, 2 Pet.1:20-21 We believe there is only one true, eternal God revealed in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Gen.1:1, 26, Deut.6:4, Isa.43:10-11, Mt.28:19, Lk.3:22, 1John 5:7 We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, sacrificial death to save us from our sins, and His resurrection and ascension to heaven. Mt.1:21, 23, John 1:1-2, 14, 3:16, Acts 1:2-3, 9, 2:22 We believe in the sinfulness of all mankind and the need of salvation, available only through the blood of Jesus Christ to all who believe and receive Him as Savior. Rom.3:23, 6:23, 10:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:4-7 We believe the finished work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body. Isa.53:4-5, Mt. 8:16-17, I Pet.2:24, James 5:14-15 We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life. Sanctification is the process of being separated from sin and dedicated to God, which begins at salvation and continues throughout the lifetime of the believer. Gal.5:22-23, I Thess.4:3-5, 5:23, II Pet.3:18 We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is promised to all believers subsequent to salvation as the entrance into a Spirit-filled life including: a prayer language (speaking in tongues), gifts of the Holy Spirit, and power to be a witness and anointed servant of God. Joel 2:28-29, Lk.3:16, Acts 1:4-5, 8, 2:4, 38-39, 10:44-47, I Cor.12:4-11 We believe in the personal, imminent return of Jesus Christ. Acts 1:11, I Thess. 4:16-18, Titus 2:13 We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to everlasting resurrection life and they that are lost to everlasting damnation. Acts 24:15, I Cor.15:20-23, Rev.20:4-6, 12-15 We believe in the Spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Rom.15:5, Eph. 4:3, 11-13, Phil. 2:1-5, 1 Cor. 12:14-27, John 17:22-29, Col. 3:12-15, Heb. 10:23-25 We believe in the responsibility of every believer to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Mt.28:19-20, Mk.16:15-20, Acts 1:8, 2:40-41, 47
