The design of this great church is to equip the saints of God with power and dominion on earth and to bring God Glory and Honor. The Mighty Church of the Redeemed is a Deliverance Ministry that is purposed to encourage and feed the spirit-man with the word of God and the truth of righteousness. Our design teaches the saints to put on the whole armor of God (Eph. 6:11-17), pray, fast and trust in the promises of God.
As a deliverance ministry, our mission is to win souls for Jesus Christ, help those in need of deliverance and aid those who are weighted down. Our design was created by God and our mission is to maintain his standard of holiness. “Build them up, to send then out, to bring them in”
Our Purpose is to go forth spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to all. We teach that it is important to live holy, learn the word of God and let your light shine in a world of darkness. Our vision is to serve as a “Spiritual Hospital” for those who are sick and afflicted. We are a full deliverance ministry operating in every spiritual gift that Jesus Christ has bestowed upon the body of Christ. (1 cor. 12). Our final destination is heaven. Everything we teach and preach is pointing God’s people to the cross.
“I’m not trying to pack out the church; I’m trying to pack out heaven”
