We are all sinners:
We believe that all men are sinners. We all deserve death for our sins. Doing good deeds cannot erase our sin. Good works show gratitude to God for His grace but they cannot buy our redemption. The only way sinfull people can be made holy is through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2: 8-10 Titus 3: 3-8)
I agree to abide by the principals set forth in the scriptures, the Beliefs Statement and Ministry Charter so as to not adversely impact the witness or unity of the Wings In The Wind Ministries. I agree that conduct varying from these principals will subject a member to be reprimanded and possible removal from the ministry. I also agree that if removed from the ministry, I will no longer publicly wear my garments displaying the ministry colors. I further agree that the decision of the officers in issues of conduct are final and are not subject to the ministry membership approval, in order to protect member privacy and ministry unity.
The true body of Christ takes many forms:
We believe that the body of believers takes many forms and is not exclusive to any one denomination or sect. Unity among our cycle ministry body is of paramount importance and will not be compromised. (Psalms 122:1, 1 Corinthians 12:13) .

Jesus Christ is the answer to man's greatest problem:
We believe that the second person of the Trinity became a man through the virgin birth and yet still remains fully God. He lives a righteous life, died, suffered the punishment that His people deserved, and was raised again. We believe He ascended to the right hand of the Father from where He rules and reigns as Lord of heaven and earth. He will return bodily to gather all of His people and establish the eternal glory of a New Heaven and Earth. (Romans 8: 34, Colossians 2: 9-15, 1 Corinthians 15: 1-8)
The Bible is God's Holy Word:
We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the unerring, divinely authoritative, complete and sufficient Word of God. (2 Timothy 3: 15-17, 2 Peter 1: 20-21)

The Spirit is our Comforter:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Trinity. Believers in Christ are sanctified and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, preserved in faith, and prepared for glory through the personal work of the Holy Spirit, (John 14: 15-17, Romans 12: 1-2)
Who is God?
We believe in one God who exist in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three persons of the Godhead are equal in power, divinity, and glory. (Genesis 1:1 Matthew 28:18-20)
The Bible says that we should place our trust in Jesus Christ alone for our eternal salvation. We must stop trusting in our own goodness. We must turn from our lives of indifference to God and place all our faith, hope, and trust in Jesus. We can tell Him that our hearts desire to accept Christ's payment and forgiveness for our sins and allow Him to change our lives to conform to His Word. ( John 3:16, 1 John 5: 11-13
History unfolds under God's sovereign care:
We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Good works do not save us, but good works are the sign of a true christian. A believer in Christ strives to do good works out of gratitude to a Holy God who has saved us by his loving grace. This affects our view of history and every discipline of life. We believe that Jesus is King and we are His servants to bring every area of life under His supreme rule. (2Corinthians 5; 14-21, Ephesians 2: 8-10)
Each local chapter is tasked with seeking opportunities to share the hope they have in CHRIST with anyone willing to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

* Charity rides and benefits
* Local food banks and children's ministries
* Funeral escorts at the request of surviving family members.
* Prayer for member needs.
* Spiritual training, encouragement , and evangelism.
As members of the body of Christ, each Local Chapter is called to be the HANDS & FEET of Christ in their local area.
