GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
We'd love for you to know our story and get to know our ministry, so let us share about our mission and doctrinal beliefs below.
Hi, I'm Dean-o
As the result of the calling I received from the Lord when I was 15 years old, I've had the privilege of ministering to kids as a children's Pastor and musical evangelist for 30 years, resulting in this exciting Bible REPLAY Go! program that fully engages K-5 children to know, believe and apply God’s Word.
3 decades as a children’s Pastor, songwriter, and performer for kids has resulted in 12 albums of Scripture music and this new Bible REPLAY Go! platform. I was blessed to traverse the US to perform at churches, schools, camps, and festivals such as the Harvest, Franklin Graham and Luis Palau Crusades.
I was also invited to anchor the 3-day Salvation Army World Trade Center relief in NYC to 9/11 families and donated 10,310 CDs in that effort. In 2,150 venues, God truly blessed me with 13,500 children who came to know Christ, a GMA Dove Award nomination for children’s album of the year, and invites to write music and materials for Group, For Kids Only, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and Standard Publishing.
WHAT WE BELIEVE. (Doctrine)
In the context of elementary-aged Bible curriculum, doctrine is taught through essential Bible stories and foundational Bible passages. Denominational distinctive can be taught to supplement these stories and passages in homes, schools, and churches within their doctrinal beliefs and practices.
The Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, authoritative and inerrant Word of God, and the final rule for faith and practice. The Word of God is a supernaturally-given revelation from God, concerning His being, nature, character, will and purposes, and is without error.
(2 Tim. 3:15-17, 2 Pet. 1:20-21, John 8:30-31, Heb. 4:12)
There is one infinite and personal God, who eternally exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is the Creator, Sustainer, Savior and Judge. While acknowledging the unity of the Godhead, we believe the Father planned salvation, the Son accomplished salvation, and the Holy Spirit applies salvation.
(Deut. 6:4, Is. 40, Eph. 1:3-14, Heb. 9:14, 1 Pet. 1:1-2, Is. 43:11-13, Rev. 20:11-15)
Jesus Christ is the unique God-Man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to make atonement for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended to the Father’s right hand. We believe Jesus intercedes for believers as their High Priest and that He will soon return as the reigning king. Jesus, who was absolutely without sin, was made to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
(John 1:1-18, Luke 2:1-20, Heb. 4:14-16, 1 Pet. 3:18, Heb. 10:1-18, 1 Cor. 15, Eph. 1:20-22, Rev. 19-20)
Man was created in the image of God, but because of Adam’s sin all men are sinners by nature and choice and are in need of salvation. We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, and that man is justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood of Christ.
(Gen. 1-3, Rom. 5:12-21, Rom. 3:21-26, Eph. 2:8-9)
The Holy Spirit convicts men of their need for salvation, causes men to be born again spiritually, permanently indwells believers, and is the source of power and fruitfulness in living the Christian life, working through the instrumentality and inspiration of the living and active Word of God.
(John 16:1-15, John 3:1-8, Rom. 8:1-16, Gal. 5:12-26)
Jesus Christ is the head of the church, which is His body, composed of all believers. The church exists to glorify God through worship, evangelism, fellowship, and discipleship. The mission of the church is to fulfill the Great Commission, and the compassion of Jesus compels us to serve the least of these in Jesus' name.
(Mt. 16:15-18, Eph. 1:20-22, Mt. 22:36-40, Mt. 25:31-40, Mt. 28:18-20)
We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. He will return bodily to earth to establish His Kingdom. Non-believers will be judged and spend eternity separated from God in hell. Believers will be rewarded with eternal fellowship with God in heaven, and the Lord's return is the blessed hope of those who know Christ as their Savior.
(Acts 1:9-11, Rev. 19-22, Phil. 3:20-21, 1 Thess. 4:14-17)
