The Way Out Christian Fellowship
Senior Pastor Earl Kennedy
My name is Earl Kennedy, I came to the Lord in 1991 leaving behind a lifestyle of drug addiction and witchcraft. I was lost and broken with no hope in life when God came to me. He sent me back to the streets that I came from to help others. We now have sober living homes for people who want help. They are able to start their lives over again with the Lord leading the way.
We have both men and women recovery homes up and running. The homes are set in a family atmosphere to give people something many are not used to. We have people staying anywhere between one month to 2 years. When they are ready to leave , then they go. Our goal for everyone who comes to us is that they never have to be addicted to anything again. Most are also restored to their own families. Above all else they leave with a relationship with the Lord that solves all their problems. This is a 24 hour a day job and the blessings that come with watching lives change in this manner are not measureable. God has blessed the houses and those who live in them.
We are in the process of opening a boarding school in the Las Vegas Valley. It is a place for children rescued from slavery. Most people know about this as child trafficking. Housing both sex and labor trafficked children, we will take children from preschool age through 17 years old. We will also take them from anywhere in the US or internationally. www.LionheartAcademy.org
The purpose of THE WAY OUT CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP is:
“For the equipping to the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love”. (Ephesians 4:12-16)
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three Persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit , equal in power and glory; that this tri-une God created all, upholds all and governs all.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through the SON, Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth. His sinless life, His miracles and teachings, His death for our sins according to the Scriptures, His burial, His bodily resurrection, His finished work on the cross, His ascension into Heaven, and His perpetual intercession for His followers.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit and all Biblical callings.
We believe that all People are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore, are under condemnation and therefore, in need of salvation and regeneration. We believe that eternal life and salvation is only by God’s grace through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe in the True Church, the living spirit body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all”. (Ephesians 1:22-23NKVJ)
