From the desk of the Apostle as we embark upon the year of 2021 many in the world have their trust in the COVID19 vaccines, the new leadership changes in our government, and the big promises from them.
But as Christians we must put all our trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Him alone. In this upcoming year we must be in tune with what He is saying to His Church through His prophets (Revelation) that will lead to our (Transition) into the (Possession) of what God has for us.
Even though we will have struggles & opposition in 2021 we must stay Focused and remember we can’t lose with God on our side. May we put our trust in nothing less than Jesus Christ blood and His Righteousness.
I RELEASE TO YOU THE THEME AND SCRIPTURE FOR KBCMI FOR 2021:
2021 THE YEAR OF REVELATION, TRANSITION & POSSESSION!
DEUTERONOMY 11:10-12 KJV… 10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
12 A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
May the Lord continue to Bless & keep you in Jesus Name.

Statement of Beliefs
In the eternal pre-existence, physical incarnation, sinless life, miracle ministry, death, burial, bodily resurrection, ascension, and soon coming return of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Lord of lords, the King of kings, and is the only way to know God.
That salvation (the new birth) happens by repenting from sin and receiving Jesus Christ as one's personal Lord and Savior. Salvation is through faith, by grace, and not by works.
That the Holy Bible alone is the written Word of God, and that Scripture is the final authority on all matters eternal and temporal.
That one God exists eternaly in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
That regeneration of man's heart is impossible without the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and that the Holy Spirit empowers the believer to live a life that is pleasing to God.
In water baptism by immersison as commanded by the Lord Jesus and demonstrated repeatedly in the Book of Acts.
That the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a second experience subsequent to salvation which is evidenced by speaking in tongues and that this empowerment is available to all believers.
In the present day operation of all nine manifestation gifts of the Holy Spirit as listed in 1 Corinthians 12, and in present day miracles, healings, deliverance from demons, signs, wonders, dreams and visions.
That all five officers of the five-fold ministry (ascension ministry gifts) listed in Ephesians Chapter 4 are still functioning today, and that these five offices are the true God-appointed leaders in the body of Christ, called and separated by God to gently lead and richly feed God's people: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.
In "The Great Commandment" to love one another as Christ loved us, and the urgency of obeying "The Great Commission" to go into all the world and preach the Gospel.
In the physical resurrection of all believers' bodies, and that the church will be caught up in the air to meet the Lord Jesus. We also believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to this earth and that every person will be judged in eternity, giving a personal account to God.
The Biblical principle of tithing 10% of our income to God has always been the practice of obedient believers before the law, during the law, and after the law, and is a New Testament principle designed by God to simultaneously prosper both the Kingdom of God and the tither. ("Tithe"="Tenth" in the Hewbrew and Greek).
The family is ordained by God and is the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.
Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God's pattern for marriage. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents.
