Core Values

Mission

ESSM exists to raise up revivalists who display the raw love and power of God, fueled by the Father’s heart. 

Statement of Faith

We believe that there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death, and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is “true God” and “true man.”

We believe that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing, and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and adopts us as we enter the kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

We believe in the ongoing, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4, is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses.

We believe in the victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness, and torment.

We believe that the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His Church the ordinances of baptism and communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, and discipling the nations – baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride – the Church.

We believe that heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the lost and the saved, the one to everlasting death and the other to everlasting life.

The Manifest Presence of God

We are a people who treasure the Manifest Presence of God above all else and desire to host his glory as a way of life.

The Goodness of God

We are a people who delight in the goodness of our Father as He reveals Himself perfectly in the person of Jesus Christ, always willing to save, heal, and deliver and never willing calamity, pain, or destruction for our lives or humanity as a whole.

Intimacy with God

We are a people who pursue knowing Jesus and who minister to his heart with lifestyles of  prayer, worship and the word.

Honoring Family

We are a family of sons and daughters of God who encourage each other in our divine callings and dreams in order to reveal His likeness and image in every person.

Supernatural Outreach

We are a people who equip the saints in the ministry and gospel of Jesus accompanied by signs, wonders, and miracles in order to release the Kingdom of God in our community and around the world.

Radical Generosity

We are a people who practice radical generosity with every part of our lives. We believe God to increase our Money, Time, and talents as we are faithful to sow them into His Kingdom.
