#1 Centrality of Jesus Christ and His Word

Jesus Christ is the living Word, the promised Messiah, and the eternal Son of the Father, sent in mission to the earth. Incarnated in the womb of the virgin Mary, He is fully God and fully human, come to reconcile God and humanity. During His earthly ministry Jesus lived a sinless life, healed the sick, raised the dead, drove out demons, befriended sinners, preached the gospel to the poor, and died as our substitute on the cross. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended to the Father, and remains our faithful Mediator and High Priest. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Him. He is the only Head of the Church, our Lord and Savior.

Biblical Christian Life is based on nothing other than Jesus Christ. Everything must come from an inward union with Him. This truth is the very heart of everything that we do in life as a believer. Our union with Christ and the cross, and dependency on the Holy Spirit are at the center of everything. Jesus Himself is the beginning and the end of everything. He is not just a priority but the center of it all. He is worthy of absolute pre-eminence in our lives and ministries. Apart from Him, we will accomplish nothing of any lasting value. What Apostle Paul said in First Corinthians 2:3 (“I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”) is our approach to life.

As such, because Jesus Christ is the Word (John 1:1-4), we honor the Word of God above all other truths. We are called to serve God in fullness of the Holy Spirit and fullness of the revealed truth — as revealed in both the Old and New Testament (Matt. 5:17-20; John 4:23-24; 15:26; 16:13; 1 John 5:6). Our ministry is centered on ministering the fullness of the gospel message, according to the ministry model that Jesus and the apostles demonstrated in the Scriptures.

We believe that God’s truth is continuing to unfold and revealed to a greater clarity (Dan. 12:9; Rev. 6:1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12; 8:1). That there will be greater understanding given to us from God’s written words in the coming days, especially as the return of Jesus draws near. So while honoring the truths revealed throughout the church history, we want to be led and directed by the Holy Spirit in application of the truths in the upcoming days (Rev. 2:7, 11, 29; 3:6, 13, 22).

God will use us to speak and apply the fullness of His truths to the churches — at times, it will manifest as a plumb line truth; other times, in encouragement and exhortation; other times, in giving prophetic direction and declaring God’s intentions. We reject partial representation of God’s truths. We must look at God’s truth in its fullness and entirety, which includes words of teaching, correction, rebuke, and training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16-17) as well as the words of upbuilding, encouragement and consolation (1 Cor. 14:3).

Jesus Christ is the Center of it All! By becoming completely one with Christ Jesus, we as sons of God will manifest the Son of God! We seek oneness with Christ!

#2 Holy Spirit, His Gifts, and Supernatural Life

God has called us to walk in Abraham’s calling and blessing each day through being led by the Holy Spirit (Rom 8.14; Gal 3.14; 5.16, 25). This entails lifestyle of hearing God’s voice and following Him daily (Deut 28.1-2; John 5:19; Heb 3:15; 4:7), willing to forsake all other (Luke 14:26). It is rather a simple lifestyle of hearing His voice, trusting Him, and following Him in obedience with joy.

It is a prophetic calling to live our life according to His will and His way. When God called us through Genesis 12:1-3, He was telling us that as we submit to His will, He will use us to be a blessing to all the nations. This can only be accomplished through our full dependence upon the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truths and reveal Christ Jesus to us and in us (John 16:13-15). He sanctifies us (2 Thes. 2:13; 1 Pet. 1:2; Rom. 5:16) and empowers us (Luke 4:14; 24:49; Rom. 15:19; Acts 1:8). We are to obey the voice of the Holy Spirit as the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus Christ to us — obedience is to be immediate, joyful, wholehearted (Is. 1:19; Ez. 20:8) — a partial and half-hearted obedience is no obedience at all (1 Sam. 15:22-23; 2 Sam. 6:3-7).

We are called to help the people of God hear the voice of the Shepherd, come to know Him and follow Him by cultivating a relationship with the Holy Spirit (John 10:27; 21:16-17; Gal. 5:16; 1John 2:27). In building the church, even though we do not despise or reject human wisdom, we will honor the Holy Spirit’s guidance and submit to His leadership in everything (Luke 5:4; John 21:6). We also recognize that not everything is written in the Bible (John 21:25) so there are situations that we need to be led by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will (Acts 5:19-20; 8:26, 29; 9:10-12; 10:11-20; 13:2; 16:6-10; 18:9-11; 23:11; 27:21-26).

In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said all true believers would flow in the miraculous: “And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” If a Christian’s life isn’t supernatural, it’s superficial. People try to preach and minister without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This is not the way the Lord intended it to be. It is unreasonable to think that we can be effective without the power of the Holy Spirit confirming the preaching of God’s Word and His ministry. We need to seek the gifts of the Holy Spirit and earnestly desire them (1 Cor. 14:1). As we do, God will use miracles, signs, and wonders to offend the mind of people and open their hearts to our Almighty God and at the same time confirm our message from God. God will surely use us to release resurrection power to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons. We believe God has called us to minister the message of the gospel accompanied by signs, wonders, and miracles as the Holy Spirit confirms His messages spoken through His messengers.

God is pouring out His Spirit, especially the revelatory gifts of prophecy, vision, and dreams, as the end draws near (Acts 2:17-18; 1 Cor 14:1). God’s promise of Joel 2:28-32 over us will surely come to pass as we honor the Holy Spirit who is God.

Joel 2:28-32 – “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.”

#3 Worship and Prayer

There is nothing more important in our relationship with God than prayer and worship. Through prayer we establish a relationship with God, and through worship we recognize who he is and give Him glory.

God has given us as a promise Amos 9:11-12: “On that day I will raise up the Tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old; That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the Gentiles who are called by My name,” says the Lord who does this thing. God is restoring the Davidic order of worship and prayer to establish the places where His glory will dwell (Amos 9:11; Acts 15:16).

In connection with His promise of Amos 9:11-12, God has called us to build a house of prayer/tabernacle of David in some form wherever we go. God will be honored through worship and prayer and many love songs for Him will be given to us divinely in our worship. God has promised us that He will gather many worshipers and musicians and that we will produce many worship albums that contain divinely inspired worship songs. We believe that we will further experience being caught up to heaven and being translated in the Spirit realm while ministering to the Lord in the house of prayer. More than anything, as we put worshiping and praying at the center of our ministry, His Presence will manifest amongst us in a very powerful way (Psalm 22:3).

Isaiah 22:22 (Key of David) was also given to us as a promise as we pray and take authority in areas God leads us to. We believe our worship & prayer will impact people, regions, and nations, and God is gathering powerful intercessors at Blessed.

#4 Revival and Second Coming of Jesus

In the fullness of time, Jesus Christ will leave the Father’s side to return to earth in glory to fulfill God’s promised purposes. All believers look forward to this Day when our earthly bodies will be transformed to be like Christ’s glorious body and the Church, the bride, will be presented to her bridegroom. For Christ will come to judge the living and the dead, usher in a new heaven and earth, and establish God’s everlasting Kingdom.

God has called us to usher in the return of Jesus Christ by being His witness to the message of the gospel with the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:6-11; 14:3; Heb. 2:3-4). Before the return of Jesus
Christ, the gospel must be preached to all the nations (Matt. 24:14; Mark 13:10) and the Jewish people in the land of Israel must turn to Jesus (Zech. 12:10; Matt. 23:39; Rom. 11:25-26).

God has revealed to us that there will be a great end time revival just before the Second Coming of Jesus. We believe it will be a worldwide global revival that will break out all over the world at the leading of the Holy Spirit. Although the world may grow darker according to 2 Timothy 3, God will raise up His remnant to “Arise and Shine” (Isaiah 60:1) and manifest His glory. We believe God has called us to contend for this end time revival and become carriers of His glory. God has promised us that He will raise up a generation of youth and children who will be pure and holy before Him who will move in the power of the Holy Spirit. God will raise up youths who will be devoted to God like Daniel and his three friends who refused to make any compromises but carry a spirit of excellence for His glory. God will use us as spiritual parents to raise up such a powerful generation.

Revival is simply defined as Arrival of God. We want revival because we want His manifest dwelling presence amongst us and not just a visitation. We will continue to live our lives with the sole goal of pleasing Him (2 Cor 5:9) and desiring His habitation amongst us. And this coming revival will affect generation after generation to live for their Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.

#5 Kingdom Training, Equipping Center, and Discipleship

The Church is called to make disciples of all nations, proclaiming the Gospel to the spiritually lost and equipping believers so that they may be presented mature in Christ. The Lord calls all believers to be ministers and witnesses to God’s amazing grace and readily to participate in the task of making disciples, for which God gives the Church powers, gifts, and talents. It is the responsibility of the Church and its leaders to develop, equip, and release people into their God- given ministries in the Church and the world. Even though the Kingdom of God is wider than the church, local churches are at the center of the Kingdom expansion (Eph. 1:22-23; 2:18-22; 3:10; 4:10- 16; 6:10-20) — through the work and the ministries of the local churches the people of God will be built up and equipped to be His witnesses in the fullness of truth, power and holiness.

God has given us numerous promises that we will have Blessed Training & Equipping Centers (BTEC) all over the world like God did with YWAM. God has called Blessed to be an apostolic center where people will be coming in and out according to the leadings of the Holy Spirit after the model of Antioch church (Acts 13:1-3). We are called to train, equip, empower all the saints for the works of ministry (Eph. 4:12) so that they can serve where God sends them (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 11:19-21).

BTEC will help people get launched into their calling and destiny in Christ Jesus. People of all ages will come and be trained at BTEC regarding the kingdom of God. BTEC’s main purpose will be to train the people of God to be able to preach the uncompromised pure gospel message, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and do all that is needed to release the Kingdom of God for His glory. BTEC will focus on developing not just the anointing of each person but their character in Christ Jesus.

Ultimately, we want to focus on discipleship at BTEC so that many powerful servants of God will be raised up to go out to the nations and release the kingdom of God. Discipleship takes much work and effort but as Jesus cared for each individual, we want to do our best to help each person become a mature disciple of Christ.

#6 Missions, Evangelism, and Church Planting

As we have explained here above, Blessed is called to be a blessing to the nations. We want to go into every nation God calls us to go into and plant churches. We believe church planting is the very best way of evangelism and discipleship. We desire to advance God’s Kingdom all over the world by planting, growing, and multiplying biblically healthy churches through the development of intentional evangelism and outreach ministries.

God is aligning us together with like-minded people from various nations to win the nations for our Lord Jesus Christ. Bob Jones, a great prophet who recently passed away, prophesied that there will be a 1 billion soul harvest before the Second Coming of Jesus. We believe God called us to be a big part of that great work to reach the lost souls.

We are called to have a missions focus no matter where we are established. We want to win over lost souls not just in our nation but in multiple other nations as well. As many Blessed churches and BTEC are getting established in different nations, they will all have this focus to reach all the nations around them. We want to plant healthy churches all around the world and harvest the field that is ripe for our King Jesus.

#7 Kingdom Business and Prosperity

Poverty comes to us as a consequence of Adam’s sin (Gen. 3:17- 19) and Christ atones for us through His death on the cross so that we can be blessed (2 Cor. 8:9). The spirit of Mammon controls the people through its spiritual power (Matt. 6:24) and so greed and covetousness cannot be used in God’s kingdom as a tool to spread the gospel (Luke 12:15; Eph. 5:3; Col. 3:6). We are to receive the power to create wealth through God-given wisdom in our covenantal relationship with God (Deut. 8:18; Prov. 3:16, 8:18) and use the wealth to advance God’s kingdom cause (Matt. 6.33).

God’s people, including those who minister, are to expect and receive abundance as a level of living in our life (2 Cor. 8:9; 9:8). We need to teach God’s people the biblical wisdom in creating wealth — work (Gen. 1:28; Eph. 4:28; 2 Thes. 3:10-12), investment (Prov. 31:16; Eccl. 11:1-6), giving (Prov. 19:17; Acts 20:35), giving inheritance (Prov. 13:22). We know that our heavenly reward for what we have done with our material goods will be incomparably greater and lasting (Luke 12:14-21; 16:9).

As God has promised us of supernatural provision and great kingdom finance, Blessed’s calling is to be the city on the hill (Matt. 5:14-16) that can show to the world and to other churches what true kingdom abundance and prosperity look like. We will be blessed to be a blessing to the nations (Gen. 12:2) and we will use our finances to invest in the kingdom work (Matt. 6:33). We are called to develop kingdom businesses that will fund the kingdom work and kingdom business schools to teach about the kingdom finance.

#8 Education and Mercy Ministry

God has commanded us to care for the orphan, the widow and the poor. God Our Father deeply cares for these vulnerable individuals in society and therefore we should too. The orphan and the widow are often forgotten, marginalized and in need. God longs to meet their needs through us, His Church. We want to live in obedience to God’s mandate and do our best to care for those who are in need.

In addition to helping the poor with their material needs, we need to establish education centers/schools for the children who come from such poverty. In developing, low-income countries, every additional year of education can increase a person’s future income by an average of 10%. Children who are born to educated mothers are less likely to be stunted or malnourished. Each additional year of maternal education also reduces the child mortality rate by 2%. Women with a primary school education are 13% more likely to know that condoms can reduce their risk of contracting HIV/AIDS. An education can help decrease the spreading of this virus by promoting safer sexual practices. 53% of the world’s out-of-school children are girls and 2/3 of the illiterate people in the world are women. Education empowers women to make healthy decisions about their lives. This is just an example of what education does for the women.

We at Blessed want to focus on establishing healthy bible based education centers/schools for the young children. We believe that God will use these Blessed schools to raise up Daniels and Josephs that will have a great positive godly influence upon their nations.
