Our Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God
We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in Three Persons:
- Holy Spirit
We believe In Jesus virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask.
We believe in the fullness of the Person of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in praying for the sick. We practice praying for the sick and believing God for supernatural, miraculous healing, according to James 4:14-16
We believe that water baptism is an outward identification of salvation, symbolizing our identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. (we die to our sinful nature and arise to new life in Jesus Christ)
We believe that we, Christians, are called to BE the church, not just attend a church. That we are all to carry out the "great commission" Jesus set forth in the last words He spoke to His disciples before He ascended to His Father, "And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you" Matthew 28, 18-20 NKJV

The Heart of 4-Given Ministries
As shared in our Mission Statement we have a heart to help others become all they can be in Christ Jesus - to obtain their destiny. We (Frank and Karin) spend several hours each day before the Lord in prayer lifting up our church family, our nation, and various ministries here in San Antonio as well as other specific ministries the Lord directs us to cover. We spend time in His Word, studying faithfully, seeking His direction for those He brings to us for one-on-one ministry.
We also come along side other ministries to assist them (some of those are listed on our 'Connections' page). Since April, 2017 we have spent much time in prayer and fasting before the Lord, seeking His direction for this ministry. The focus is now completely His, not ours. Much has changed. He spoke quite clearly that the passion He put inside Karin's heart years ago for Discipleship needed to be the MAIN focus, and that all of the 'other' things must be laid aside - admittedly, that did hurt a bit, but desiring above all else to please our Abba Father, we obeyed. This ministry is His and His, alone.
The one-on-one Discipleship/Counseling has been ongoing for many years, but has been increasing and the doors (we are now in the year of the open doors 5778) are beginning to open for a classroom setting in the new year. He has also prompted us to begin to make the same teachings available on podcasts (which we are learning how to do), and they will be up as He allows them to be created. These teachings are truly life changing and need to be made available . . . not just one-on-one (which will continue) but to all. It is the "How to APPLY God's Word" and "Live in Victory!"
"It changed my life and countless others . . . how can I not share it with others?!" Karin Hill
