Warrior Sworn to the Cross Missionary Network Church of North America
INFORMATION DOCUMENT WSC-A2023
“Who will go for us?” —Isaiah 6:8, ESV
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His Body, the Church (1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22–23). The formation of this Church took place in 2015 as a Christian Network Church, comprised of 3,500 individuals: lay persons, pastors, evangelists, teachers, priests, ministers, and missionaries from many different Christian Denominations with a mutual driven mission. The Church is run by an all-volunteer staff. In November 2018, the Church filed and was approved as a non-profit 501 (3)c

To seek Wisdom through Our Lord Jesus Christ by knowing His Word. To give men/women a renewed purpose to show the Light of God in them
To take a stance in spiritual warfare and stand their ground. Not to be afraid and unite as one body in Christ and let the Holy Spirit Guide them
To give up selfish ways and serve each other in love. To accept His brothers unconditionally in love but

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God revealing the love of God to the world (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15–17; John 3:16).
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4–6).
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1–4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22–24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3–4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5–11; Hebrews 1:1–4 and 4:15).
We believe that all men/women everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, we believe that God will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell (Luke 24:46–47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10–11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8–9; Titus 3:4–7).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit; whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. (John 3:5–8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16–18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6–10).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (1 Corinthians 15:51–57; Revelation 20:11–15).
We believe that the ministry of evangelism (sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18–20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9–15; 1 Peter 3:15).
We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5–6; Mark 10:6–9; Romans 1:26–27; 1 Corinthians 6:9)
We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism (Matthew 9:35–38; 22:37–39; and 28:18–20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9–15 and 12:20–21; Galatians 6:10; Colossians 2:6–10; 1 Peter 3:15).
We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellow men/women (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37–39; Romans 12:20–21; Galatians 6:10).
Ministry of Intercession
This is a Ministry of Christians working together as individuals and, or groups, to intercede in continuous prayer for others in the presence of God and ask for His help. There are situations that need the urgent attention of heaven to save people from unnecessary suffering. Through the ministry of intercession, one participates actively in the redemption of the world, in seeking the lost sheep of the Master. A single person who opts to be an intercessor can make a great difference. "The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects" (James 5:16). Evangelists preaching and teaching the Word of God may plant a seed in resisting lost souls, but without constant intercessions on their behalf, they may remain lost.
Christians communicate with God through prayer. Many are intercessors and don't even know they are. The Ministry of Intercession is a special calling. It is not an official appointed position by a church. They are Christians who are dedicated disciples who have unquestionable faith. They humbly walk with God daily in prayer seeking direction, seeing lost souls with empathy and without judgment. They naturally display kindness, selflessness and mercy. An intercessor sacrifices his/her time and energy praying for specific needs of others. Intercessors tend to see the world through the eyes of God and not as the world sees itself (Romans 12:2).
We solicit the mercy of Our Lord to intervene against the anarchy of the world that combats His Kingdom, whether it's the evil that men do or spiritual attacks from the prince of darkness. We pray for special needs and specific situations causing turmoil (Psalm 144:1-2, Psalm 145:20)
Examples include members of a congregation who seek to destroy a church instead of unifying it, for governments, groups, and or individuals wanting to destroy those who worship Christ, for rebellion and disobedience of those who accepted Christ as their savior, for those who choose to be enslaved to their addictions, perversions, anger and hate. For the lost souls who refuse to believe in the Good News, for physical protection of the peace makers, for healing of the sick and suffering, and for deliverance of the righteous servants of God under spiritual attack.
