Statement of Faith ⇐
Our belief on the Godhead is from 1 John 5:7-8, "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one." (NKJV)
We hold fast to the great commission in Matthew 28:19. All scripture is from God and is good for higher living. (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe in one God who is eternal in His existence, Triune in His manifestation, being Father, Son and Holy Ghost and that He is sovereign and absolute in His authority.
We believe in the Father who is God Himself, Creator of the universe. (Gen 1:1; John 1:1)
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. (Col 2:9)
He suffered, died, was buried, and rose from the dead for our total salvation (Luke 3:21-22; Philippians 2:5-11).
We believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him (John 3:36; John 3:31-32; John 14:6).
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is God indwelling, empowering and regenerating the believer. This Holy Spirit is called the Comforter. The Spirit of Truth (John 14:17, 14:26)
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ atones for our sins and iniquity. It is through His shed blood that we are saved, healed and set free from bondage and the forces of darkness (Romans 5:9-11; Ephesians 1:7; Revelation 12:11).
We believe that every believer must have a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, for apart from Him we can do nothing. Each person has a ministry from God that no one else can fill. We are to instruct, teach, exhort, and admonish believers in the ways of God (John 15:1-5; Hebrews 13:5-6).
We believe that the Bible is the true infallible Word of God, which cleanses our souls. It holds the words of eternal life and the keys of the Kingdom of God. The Bible shows us God's principles and standards for living; and it is the food that sustains us in all circumstances (John 1:14; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17; 1 John 2:5-6).
We believe that we are to wash and renew our minds daily by the Word of God.
We must learn His ways and exchange our way of thinking for His. We are to be conformed to the Kingdom of God by the molding and shaping of His Hands (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:23-29; Philippians 4:8).
We believe in justification by faith. We believe that salvation is free and apart from any work of man is a result of the sovereign grace of God. (Eph 2:8-9, Gal 5:5, Rom 5:1, Rom 3:20 Rom 7:5-6 and 2 Cor 3:4-6)
We believe in worshipping the Lord in spirit, song, dance and with the raising of our hands. We believe that we are to praise and worship Him with our whole being (Psalms 150:1-6; John 4:24).
We believe that in Godly living and the pursuit of a holy life should be the goal of every believer. (Heb 12:14, Phil 3:14)
We believe that believers should be water baptized by immersion for the circumcision of our hearts. It is through baptism that we publicly identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38, 10:44 and 9:1-4). We baptize always as the early church in Acts "in Jesus Name", because He is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2) , Matthew 28:19 Jesus declares that we should baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that all authority was given to Him. Therefore during baptism, we baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, by the authority of Jesus Christ.
We believe that all Christians need to partake of the communion elements which represent the Lord Jesus' body and blood. It is by participating in the Lord's Supper that we proclaim His death until His return (John 6:53-58; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30).
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit that is subsequent to salvation and is evident in the life of the believer when there is testimony and evidences presented on behalf of Jesus Christ, and when the wonderful works of God are declared and demonstrated! (Joel 2:28, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4 , acts 2:11, Acts 2:36-47,Cor 12-14, 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe that Christians must be filled daily by using our prayer language, but the evidence of the Holy Spirit's indwelling presence is a changed life ( Ephesians 1:12-14, 5:18-21). We believe that God puts a greater emphasis on the fruits of the spirit than the gifts of the spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:28-31, 13:1-3 14:1-5 Galatians 5:22-55)
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, and healing (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11).
We believe that it is God's will to heal and deliver His people today as He did in the days of the first Apostles. It is by the stripes of Jesus that we are healed, delivered and made whole. We have authority over sickness, disease, demons, curses, and every circumstance in life (Luke 10:19; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24).
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature... And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." (Mark 16:15-18)

First, I just wanted to take a moment let all of you who are currently volunteers know that your volunteer efforts are greatly appreciated here at the Threshing Floor Christian Fellowship.
You have taken time from the "busy-ness" of your own schedule to participate in ministry opportunity here at TFCF. While the church has greatly benefited from your service, please understand that God Himself sees and rewards those who diligently work for Him with little or no regard for earthly recognition.
At times it may seem that much of the work is "behind the scenes", and no one really cares. I must encourage you and remind you that in reality it is God that we are working for, and all glory and honor should go directly to Him. Our lives of service can have a tremendous impact on the wondering world around us: Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

About the Ministry ⇐
The guiding scriptural basis for the " Marriage of Excellence Ministry” is Ephesians 3:20, 21:
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.” - Ephesians 3:20, 21
We believe that no matter what the current state of your marriage, God can work to take it “exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think”. Quite simply, God wants your marriage to be EXCELLENT.
