Community InReach Program Strategy: 1
Spiritual Empowerment is structured as a violence prevention program addressing the antecedents to acts of violence using faith-based principles.
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
TOPM believes that there is only one God. And He surrounds us despite belief in Him.
God loves the believer as well as the unbeliever.
I TIMOTHY 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...
TOPM believes that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh as the means to Salvation, eternal life.
How to obtain Salvation
That if thou (you) shalt confess with thy (your) mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine (your) heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou (you) shalt be saved.
Your confession is to God, is the beginning of your personal relationship with the Father, by accepting the Son.
..... and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them who obey.
TOPM believes that the Holy Ghost is given to those who obey God.
The Holy Spirit is God speaking to guide us from within.
Some Christians are taught that ONCE becoming saved they will no longer have the desires of sin or acts of sin. Unfortunately this has caused CONDEMNATION and the doors of the church revolve instead of evolve.
Pastor Tam believes that becoming saved simply requires Roman 10:9. She also believes EVEN once saved, that NO MAN is immune from sin, as declared in I John 1: 8-10. It is her belief that "godly sorrow" 2 Corinthians 7:10 is the stage before repentance different from Hebrews 12:6-11.
