WE BELIEVE the Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible Word, and it is the final authority on all issues concerning our lives and “The Most Excellent Way” ministry.

WE BELIEVE the Bible says alcohol and drug addiction are sin, not disease.  Therefore, the facts of sin and separation from God are dealt with as the roots of all addiction problems.

WE BELIEVE there is only one way we find forgiveness for sin: through
faith in Jesus Christ who died for our sins. He is the only authority
and power able to forgive our sins.

WE BELIEVE there is only one way to be reconciled to God and achieve total victory over the sin of addiction:  Jesus said: You must be born again by the Spirit.  ~ John 3:7 NKJV.  That occurs when we ask Jesus Christ to become our personal Lord  and Savior.

WE BELIEVE, once “born again,” we are empowered by the Spirit of God to overcome any sin, including addiction and drunkenness.

WE BELIEVE permanent victory over the sin of addiction occurs when
we deny our own will, and begin to willingly submit our lives to the
perfect will of God on a daily basis.

WE BELIEVE in teaching, encouraging and discipling new believers from God’s Word as led by His Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE knowing God’s truths protects us from man’s false ideas and doctrines prevalent in today’s world.  “Jesus said to those ... who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’”  ~ John 8:31-32 NKJV

WE BELIEVE Jesus is the truth that makes us free. He is the source of truth, the perfect standard of what is right.  He frees us from self-deception, and His Spirit gives us discernment:  “. . . that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ . . .”  ~ Ephesians 4:14-5 NKJV
