Army of the Lord (A.O.L.) is a Christ-Centered ministry with a focus on training up strong soldiers in the Lord's Spiritual Army. We believe that there is an ever raging battle in the spirit realm that invades the natural realm and causes the things that prevail in the spirit to manifest in the natural.
It is our endeavor to help those "whosoever" choose to enlist in this awesome battle to develop the following things…
- A personal relationship with God
- A strong prayer life
- A life of integrity
- An excellent understanding of the spiritual battle
- A spiritual arsenal to defeat the enemy
- An enduring spirit of perseverance
- The ability to train others
We believe that through partnering with people and walking alongside them, the Lord is able to create strong bonds that will help support in those crucial times of need. We are comrades in arms and strive together for the mastery.
Joel 2:11 says, "And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: For his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
We strive to trains soldiers for God who will be able to not only abide that day, but to hear the words, "Well done thou good and faithful servant!"
To recruit and train new soldiers for Christ who will be conditioned, equipped, and ready to stand against every scheme of the enemy, while taking possession of all the spiritual blessings promised to them. Conditioned...Equipped...Ready!
