This month starts a new year where we will be claiming our territory in every aspect of our lives -- mind, body and spirit. Commit wholly to increasing your relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through prayer, praise and worship. We pray that the information you receive from our newsletter will uplift and strengthen you to live a more abundant life.
From the Bishop
Claiming Our Territory
It's a brand new year and a brand new day. Let us seize every opportunity that this presents us, fully laying hold to everything that according to the word of God, legitimately belongs to us. Too often as children of the Most High we have failed to walk in the fullness of our royal heritage and all that it affords. We are The King's children yet in many areas we've lived way beneath our privileges.
We have settled for far less than what was rightfully ours because in some cases we either did not know or did not really believe that we could have all that God has said we could have. As a result, we have left both natural and spiritual blessings laying unclaimed. Good health, financial stability, new businesses, strong relationships, healthy families, job opportunities, peace of mind, joy, hope, restful sleep, and so much more has simply been left in a spiritual storage bin with a sign on it that says "Unclaimed Belongings" .
But I declare that 2015 is the year that we are "Claiming Our Territory". This is the year that we shall walk on new ground. Just as God promised Moses, He promises us today, "Every place the sole of your foot treads will be yours. Your territory will extend from the wilderness to Lebanon and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea" (Deut.11:25). In other words, our territory extends deep and wide.
So, don't wait until Sunday to recite the Life's declaration. I want you to say these words every single day. "I am a Believer. I can do what God said I could do. I can have what God said I could have. I will become what God said I would become. Because I am a Fearless Believer!"
Now let's go boldly and claim everything that God has for us. Happy New Year!
Bishop E.V. Reeves

HEALTH MINISTRY SESSION IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 17TH*
Come join the Health Ministry for a time of healing, deliverance and restoration on Saturday, January 17th from 10 am to noon at The Life, 12680 Darby Brook Court Woodbridge VA 22192.
This month we will discuss how our whole health (body, soul and spirit) has already been accomplished through the atonement. Healing is a done deal, and is available to us now exactly the same as forgiveness of sins. Because we are already healed, believers can lead a healthy prosperous life.
