The Way of Holiness Church

VISION STATEMENT

The Way Of Holiness Church (Is. 35:8) is a ministry ordained of God, the Father, under the Lordship
of Jesus Christ and the Leadership of the Holy Ghost.

The sole purpose of this ministry is the advancement of the body and kingdom of Jesus Christ in the earth.

This will be accomplished through a fivefold ministry and church body working together in unity to this end.

The Lord's goals and purposes for the Church are:
      1.  Reaching the lost with the message of salvation.
      2.  Providing a corporate worship atmosphere where believers can enjoy the presence of the Lord and
           the fellowship of brothers and sisters in Christ.
      3.  Bringing believers to maturity in Christ through the ministry of the word, stressing a personal
           fellowship with Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
      4.  Equipping the saints for ministry.
      5.  Meeting the needs of the communities, both physical and spiritual.
      6.  Planting churches, ministries, and missions as the Holy Spirit directs.

AUTHORITY OF STATEMENT OF FAITH

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith, the Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. 
We do believe, however, that the foregoing statement of faith accurately represents the teaching of the Bible.

    "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness." Isaiah 35:8
