A lot of people ask us "Why are you called The Ramp?" Well by definition, a ramp is a platform that leads from one level to the next. We believe that our life long journey with Christ should be progressive-- always going higher. Over time we should become more mature believers, and followers of Jesus Christ. We also use RAMP as an acronym, to explain our mission, which is to
Reach As Many Possible!
A little about us!
1. To chase after lost souls and lead them to Christ.
2. To train believers to do effective evangelism through teaching.
3. To encourage believers to experience the fullness of God.
4. To prepare the body of Christ for the coming of the Lord!!!
We believe that God is coming back for one church. We believe that one is saved through the finished work of Calvary and not their denominational affiliation. We believe that there are true believers in Christ all across the denominational spectrum.
Pentecostal in Experience
We believe in the experience that the early church had on the day of Pentecost in where they were baptized in the Holy Spirit. We believe that the believer can still experience this today.
Apostolic in Doctrine
We believe in the teaching of Jesus through the Apostles. That means we believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, water baptism in His name, the fivefold ministry, miracles, signs and wonders. (Acts 2:42)
What We Believe:
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God and that all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2Tim. 3:16)
We believe in one God who is eternal in His existence, Triune in His manifestation, being both Father, Son and Holy Ghost AND that He is Sovereign and Absolute in His authority.(Colossians 2:9, Deuteronomy 6:4)
We believe that salvation is received through belief on Jesus Christ and the finished work of Calvary. (Romans 10:9)
Deity of Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, bodily resurrection , and ascension unto the right hand of Almighty God is the cornerstone of our faith. We also believe that His all-sufficient power and atoning blood saves and cleanses us, through confession and repentance of sin, and faith in Christ Jesus alone. We believe that in Jesus Christ lies the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He is fully God and fully man.(John 1:1; Luke 1:35; Matt. 28:6; Acts 7:55; Heb. 9:14; Rom. 10:9,10)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38)
We believe that a life of holiness and separation from the world and sin is paramount to the believer, and that we must continually serve the Lord with a pure heart and a right Spirit. (2 Cor. 6:17; Ps. 51:10)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in other tongues. We believe that Christians must be filled daily by using our prayer language, but the evidence of the Holy Spirit's indwelling presence is a changed life through the expression of the fruit of the Spirit. (Acts 2:4; Ephesians 5:18-21, Galatians 5:22,23).
We believe in the rapture of the church and the Second Coming of Christ. We believe that believers will experience the restoration of the church and all that the Prophets have spoken, plus the visual and bodily return of Jesus Christ as He comes again to set His Kingdom in order on Earth.
(Matt. 24:27-30;1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Zech. 14:4,9)
