Creating A Faith Template
A faith template is a pattern that we create to use repeatedly. It helps us hold to God’s promises when the hard times come. When our template is based on the Word of God, we position ourselves to stand strong and to recover. It doesn’t mean that nothing bad will ever happen. When we create a faith template, we have taken the Word of God and buried it within our spirits.
Our language has to be transformed. We must learn to speak God’s language. We should not describe ourselves as sick, but as the healed. We need to make sure our words do not fall out of agreement with God’s Word. That’s part of what’s involved in creating a faith template. We know who God is and what Jesus accomplished for us, so that we can walk in victory each and every day. Because the enemy will come to attack you when you are alone and isolated. When you have a faith template, the Holy Spirit can remind you. Instead of dropping into gloom, doom, and despair, you can speak the words of God and refuse the pressure to cave in. We create that faith template by meditating on faith.

Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Mark 5:30, 4:39 NKJV
5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
4:39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
Special Scriptures: The service has been separated into two parts.
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.”
