What to Expect
Times of Refreshing
Ministries is a Pentecostal ministry which means we embrace the
spiritual outpouring and empowerment known as the baptism with
the Holy Spirit. Because this outpouring is so similar to the
experience of the early Christians on the day of Pentecost, it
is called a Pentecostal experience, an enrichment of the
Christian life through the power of the Holy Spirit that
empowers believers to be effective witnesses of Christ and to
walk in victory over sin. We believe that the Lord is still able
and willing to heal both our spirit and our body. You will
find many personal testimonies of His healing power bearing
witness to this reality in our
We believe true, heartfelt worship brings us into the very
presence of the Living God and that it is a sweet fragrance to
Him. For this reason, we:

What We Believe
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible.
We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons;
namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the
Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin
Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the
dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand
of the Father as the Intercessor.
Salvation By Grace Through Faith
We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of
God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and
necessary for forgiveness of sins. That justification,
regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the
blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in sanctification subsequent to the new birth,
through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by
the Holy Ghost.
We believe holiness to be God's standard of living for His
Baptism with the Holy Spirit
We believe in the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a
clean heart. In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives
utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism
with the Holy Ghost.
We believe in water baptism by immersion, and all who repent
should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost.
We believe divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.
Lord's Supper & Foot Washing
We believe in the Lords Supper and washing of the saints' feet.
Premillennial Second Coming
We believe in the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First,
to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living
saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a
Resurrection, Eternal Life & Eternal Judgment
We believe in the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the
righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
We will demonstrate our commitment to Christ
through our loyalty to God, our
commitment to His people and
to the work of Christ as good stewards.
We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body
and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh. We
will read, watch and listen to those things which are of
positive benefit to our spiritual well-being.
We will live in a manner that inspires trust and confidence,
bearing the fruit of the Spirit and seeking to manifest the
character of Christ in all our behavior.
We will give priority to fulfilling family responsibilities, to
preserving the sanctity of marriage and to maintaining divine
order in the home.
We will practice temperance in behavior and will abstain from
activities and attitudes which are offensive to our fellowman or
which lead to addiction or enslavement.
We will demonstrate the scriptural principle of
modesty by appearing and dressing in a manner that will not
cause a fellow brother or sister to fall into sin through lust.
We will strive to fulfill our obligations to society
by being good citizens, by correcting social injustices, and by
protecting the sanctity of life.
