About Ignite Ministries

Ignite Ministries was birthed out of a burning desire by ordinary people to share the revelation of Jesus Christ as the returning Bridegroom and the church as His bride. We believe that our ultimate purpose is to be the bride that Jesus died for; holy, set apart, passionate for Him alone and ready for His return.

We Believe

We believe in the triune Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that there is one God and Father, Who is over all and in all and living through all. (Eph 4:6)

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the only begotten Son of God, who was crucified and who rose from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, making intercession for us (Romans 8:34)

We believe that the Father send the Holy Spirit as Jesus’ representative to teach and remind us of everything Jesus taught (John 14:26)

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God and that all scripture is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16)

We believe our ultimate calling is to be holy, set apart, without spot or wrinkle, a worthy bride, ready for the return of the Bridegroom
