Welcome to Oxford Word of Faith
Greetings in the matchless name of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord! Thank you for joining me and Oxford Word of Faith Church on the internet. It is exciting to minister to you through this wonderful medium where we can reach followers worldwide. My hope is that our website and social media sites will become a valuable tool in bringing you ever closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
You do not need a minister to pray for you to be certain God hears your prayer. James 5:16 says the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. A righteous man is anyone who has received Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Saviour. If you have not yet accepted Jesus, then Romans 10:9-10 is the first step you need to take. It says that if you will confess (or say) with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I urge you to fight the good fight of faith by developing a personal relationship with the Lord by spending time with Him in prayer as well as in praise and worship and the reading of His Word on a consistent basis. God longs to fellowship with you. And like a good father, He wants you to come directly to Him with all your needs. This is why He tells us to come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
If you have a challenge believing God hears and desires to answer your prayers, I recommend that you study what the scriptures say about righteousness, as well as read the accompanying article listed above entitled What We Believe. This will help you understand what it means to have a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This understanding will empower you to act and stand on God’s Word. Having others pray for you is fine and certainly biblical, but it is much more rewarding to obtain God’s blessings on your own. I cannot begin to express how fulfilling and liberating it is to be dependent solely upon the Lord.
It is truly an honour and privilege to contribute to your spiritual growth in the Lord. If you have a special need, I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to fight the good fight of faith (First Timothy 6:12). God’s Word is true and will work for you. Acts 10:34 says God shows no partiality; He simply honours His Word. Since God’s Word works for me, I know it can work for you, as well.
In the service of the King,
