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 Faith
God is the Eternal King. He is an infinite, unchangeable Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, goodness, justice, power, and love. From all eternity He exists as the One Living and True God in three persons of one substance, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory.
God's kingdom is everlasting. From His throne, through His Son, His eternal Word, God created, upholds, and governs all that exists: the heavenly places, the angelic hosts, the universe, the earth, every living thing, and mankind. God created all things very good.
Satan, originally a great, good angel, rebelled against God, taking a host of angels with him. He was cast out of God's presence and, as a usurper of God's rule established a counter kingdom of darkness and evil on earth.
God created mankind in His image, male and female, for relationship with Himself and to govern the earth. Under the tempation of Satan, our original parents fell from grace, bringing sin, sickness, and God's judgment of death to the earth. Through the fall, Satan and his demonic hosts gained access to God's good creation. Creation now experiences the consequences and effects of Adam's orginal sin. Human beings are born in sin, subject to God's judgment of death, and captive to Satan's kingdom of darkness.
God did not abandon His rule over the earth which He continues to uphold by His providence. In order to bring redemption, God established covenants which reveal His grace to sinners. In the covenant with Abraham, God bound himself to His people Israel, promising to deliver them from bondage to sin and Satan and to bless all the nations through them.
As King, God later redeemed His people by His mighty acts from bondage in Egypt and established His covenant through Moses, revealing His perfect will and our obligation to fulfill it. The law's purpose is to bring order to our fallen race and to make us conscious of our moral responsibility. By the work of God's Spirit, it convicts us of our sin and God's righteous judgment against us and brings us to Christ alone for salvation.
When Israel rejected God's rule over her as King, God established the monarchy in Israel and made an unconditional covenant with David, promising that his heir would restore God's kingdom reign over His people as Messiah forever.
Jesus was anointed as God's Messiah and empowered by the Holy Spirit, inaugurating God's Kingdom reign on earth, overpowering the reign of Satan by resisting temptation, preaching the good news of salvation, healing the sick, casting out demons, and raising the dead. As God's Son and David's heir, He is the eternal Messiah King, advancing God's reign throughout every generation and throughout the whole earth today.
The Holy Spirit brings the permanent indwelling presence of God to us for spiritual worship, personal sanctification, building up the Church, gifting us for ministry, and driving back the kingdom of Satan by the evangelization of the world through proclaiming the word of Jesus and doing the works of Jesus.
In the present ministry of the Spirit and in the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Spirit. We practice the laying on of hands for the empowering of the Spirit, for healing, for impartations of gifts of the Holy Spirit, and for recognition and empowering of those whom God has ordained to lead and serve the church. We also recognize that another of the two ways recorded in the Bible that God empowers people is through individual or corporate prayer and waiting upon God, and in this latter scenario there is no laying on of hands. We value both of these ways of receiving impartations and empowering experiences from God.
The Holy Spirit inspired the human authors of the Holy Scripture so that the Bible is "God-breathed". We receive the sixty six books of the Old and New Testaments as our final. absolute authority, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
The whole world is under the domination of Satan and that all people are sinners by nature and choice. All people therefore are under God's just judgment. Through the preaching of the Good News of Jesus and the Kingdom of God and the work of the Holy Spirit, God regenerates, justifies, adopts and sanctifies through Jesus by the Spirit all who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. By this they are released from Satan's domain and enter into God's kingdom reign.
In the one, holy, universal Church. All who repent of their sins and trust Jesus as Lord and Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and form the living Body of Christ, of which He is the head and all are members.
Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: water baptism and the Lord's Supper. Both are available to all believers. We recognize that grace is also conveyed through the preaching and study of the Word of God, the Bible. We believe that the preached/taught or read Word of God, baptism, and the Lord's Supper can all be means by which we experience the Triune God.
God's kingdom has come in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, that it continues to come in the ministry of the Holy Spirit through the Church, and that it will be consummated in the glorious, visible, and triumphant appearing of Christ: His return to the earth as King. After Christ returns to reign, He will bring about the final defeat of Satan and all of his minions and works, the resurrection of the dead, the final judgment and eternal conscious punishment of the wicked, and the eternal blessing of the righteous.
