WHAT WE BELIEVE
Salvation is through Jesus Christ alone. It makes no sense for Jesus to die for our sins if there is another way. If you can get to heaven any other way except through Jesus Christ, it makes Christianity false because He said He was the only way, truth and life. No one gets to heaven and to the Father without going through Him. John 14:6
We believe in marriage between an adult man and adult woman only. Whereas men may recognize other so called unions, marriage between a man and a woman is the only relationship that is ordained and blessed by God.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three separate individuals that make up the Godhead. Although each member of the Trinity has a different function, they are one in name, aim, thought and purpose.
Colossians 2:8-9, Matthew 28:19, Mark 1:9-11
According to Matthew 24:36, no one (not even the angels) knows the day or hour of Christ’s return. Our Father God in heaven is the only one who knows that day. Our responsibility as Christians is not to try to figure out the day but to plan for the future and live today as if Jesus is coming tomorrow.
The Word of God is perfect, supernatural, and eternal. There is no question it cannot answer. There is no problem it cannot solve. Regardless to how advanced civilization becomes, the Word of God will not lose its relevancy, for it was authored by God Himself, the One who created the things that men are just now discovering. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
II Timothy 3:16
The Holy Spirit’s first function is to live INSIDE of you, convict you of sin, convince you of that which is right and give you proper judgement in all things. John 14:17
There is a second function called the baptism in the Holy Spirit. In this function, the Spirit rests UPON you, giving you power to walk in victory, the same way Christ did when He walked the earth . When you receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, many powerful gifts are activated inside of you, and you are blessed with a heavenly prayer language called “speaking in tongues.”
HEAVEN AND HELL
Man was created to live forever. He will exist either separated from God by sin or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is to end up in hell; to be eternally in union with Him is to go to heaven.
Heaven and hell are both real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15
Christians are called to follow a person not a formula
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We have two church locations.
Our first location is at 3771 Floyd Rd Austell, GA 30106. At this location we have Saturday morning service at 9:30 am and Wednesday night service at 6:45 pm. (We share this building with Highest Praise Church of God so look for the Lionheart Church signs).Our second location is at 820 Bethsaida Rd Riverdale, GA 30274. At this location we have Sunday morning service at 10:15 am.
WHAT ARE YOUR WORSHIP SERVICES LIKE?
Our worship experience is very energetic and engaging, so make sure you dress comfortably and relaxed! People come to our services with a high level of expectancy because they never experience the same programmed service over and over again. Our worship experience is very Holy Spirit driven, therefore powerful encounters with God are the norm in our midst.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE FIRST TIME I VISIT?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not ask you to stand up or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile until they get comfortable with who we are. We have a very warm and friendly atmosphere. You will not feel like you stick out when you are with us.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR KIDS?
We love and adore children! We offer an environment where your kids will enjoy a time of worship, teaching, video and small group time. They are taught biblical principles in a format that is relevant to their age group. Currently, our children’s ministry is available for crawlers up to age 12.
