Virtue And Praise Ministries’ mission is to demonstrate the love of God through actions and good deeds, using words only when necessary. We
believe that each person has within themselves the God-given talents to sustain their lives, only that encouragement may be needed to manifest
their inner strengths and abilities. As such, our aims are met through the operation of social services which answer the varied immediate social ails
plaguing society, while simultaneously providing the skills necessary to become profitable members of society. These operations include supplying
the basic necessities of life such as food and clothing in cooperation with affording life sustaining educational and career skills. The goal then, is to
change our communities for the better, one person at a time, creating new leaders who will positively affect their own neighborhoods, cities, and
states.
VISION STATEMENT
Like millions of other Christians in the world today we share the great doctrine of the church belief in the triune God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
the redemptive ministry of Jesus Christ; the believer's resurrection made possible by the resurrection of Jesus Christ; and the ultimate triumph of
our Lord over death. To expound on to these great truths, we stress the following beliefs:

THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST:  Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and humanity. He is the living Lord of the Bible and the living Lord
of today. He is the head of the church.

THE SUPREMACY OF THE SCRIPTURES: The Bible, which can be read and understood by all believers, is our final authority in faith and conduct.

THE PRIESTHOOD OF BELIEVERS: Every person can approach God directly through Christ without the aid of human priests. Each believer should
also be a witness to others.

BELIEVER'S BAPTISM: Baptism should be administered only to believers and followers of Christ, and the mode is immersion, as taught in the New
Testament.

REGENERATE CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: Church membership is only for born-again believers who bear witness to the new life in Christ.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: Every person is responsible to God for his or her own religious beliefs and practices. All persons therefore should have the
right to worship God as their own convictions and conscience dictate.

THE AUTONOMY OF THE LOCAL CHURCH: Each local church is self-governing, choosing its own pastor with prayer and fasting, and managing its
own affairs.

THE EVANGELIZATION OF THE WORLD: VIRTUE AND PRAISE MINISTRIES takes seriously the Great Commission of Christ. Therefore, we endeavor
to win people to Christ at home and abroad.
