We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Scriptures as the absolute authority for faith and practice. (Matthew 4:4; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:16-21)
We believe there is one true God; He is a trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; I John 5:7)
We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God, possessing full deity, without sin, born of a virgin. (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1-4; 8:58; I John 5:7)
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity; He is active in salvation, and He equips and enables believers for service. (Romans 8:1-2; I Corinthians 3:16; 12:4-11; I John 5:7)
We believe man was created in the image of God, possessing freewill, and was made as an eternal being; as a result of the fall, he is born with a sin nature. (Genesis 1:26-27; John 1:12; Romans 3:23)
We believe sin separates man from God, and will be ultimately punished in the Lake of Fire for eternity. (Isaiah 59:2; Romans 5:12; 6:23; Revelation 20:14-15)
We believe salvation is obtained by grace through faith in Jesus Christ's substitutionary death, burial and bodily resurrection. (John 1:45; 3:16; Acts 16:31; I Corinthians 15:3-4)
We believe the local church was instituted by Christ, and is commissioned to implement His plan of evangelizing sinners and edifying saints; baptism and the Lord's Supper are its ordinances, and the pastor and deacon its offices. (Matthew 16:17-19; 28:19-20; Acts2:42-47; I Timothy 3:1-13)
We believe in the pretribulational and premillenial return of Christ, and in a literal heaven and hell. (Genesis 1:1; I Corinthians 15:51-53; I Thessalonians 2:19; 4:13-18; Revelation 4; 19-20)
How do you pronounce your name?
What is your testimony?
I realized my need for Christ at eight years of age, surrendered to evangelism at age eleven, and began preaching at thirteen.
Which Bible do you Use?
I believe in the Received Text and that formal equivalency is the best translation method because it stays true to the source text; hence I use the King James Version.
Do you provide conservative music?
Currently, we offer piano specials, male solo, female solo, duets, and Izzy has a few specials with more on the way!
Do you offer a program for children?
Kate can have a children's program in conjunction with our meetings, if the church can provide helpers appropriate to the number of children.
How do you travel?
Our family travels in a midsize crossover; a room with space for two adults and three children make perfect accommodations.
Are you bilingual?
Both Kate and I know ASL (American Sign Language) and can interpret. Evangelist Valentino can also address a deaf audience as well.
What's your ETHNICITY?
Valentino is half Peruvian, a quarter Italian, and a quarter Belgian, while Katie is a mix of German, Scottish, and English.
How did you and your wife meet?
I grew up in California and my wife in Indiana, but we met while working at the same christian camp in Tennessee.
