The Kingdom is where the King has dominion. Those who reside under the King’s dominion are His subjects. The Kingdom of God is a governmental entity. As we receive Jesus, we have the capability to operate under the government of the Kingdom of God. It is a spiritual dominion. The dominion of Jesus in our lives is subject to our obedience to kingdom principles and being led by His Spirit. That explains why not everyone who is in the body of Christ is seeking the Kingdom of God. Seeking the Kingdom of God means coming into alignment with His commandments. Paul spoke to believers in Corinth about living in carnality. Those believers had made the first step, but they had not advanced. They were not partakers of the benefits of being a citizen of the Kingdom of God. (See 1 Corinthians 3:1.) As we come to the realization that we are a resident of the Kingdom of God, we learn all the benefits that God has set apart for us. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Ghost. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on July 7, 2019, and be blessed!
Matthew 6:31–34 NKJV
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
Romans 14:17 NKJV
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and his anointing.”
