Living Branch Ministries was founded by Sam and Diane Hartley who felt called to help disciple people who are struggling with their Christian walk, and especially those who have lived in bondage to past labels of unworthiness or those battling with life controlling addictions. Our hope and dream is to enable people to radically transform their life to become functional and productive in their daily lives, experience the fullness of Christ’s love and have peace and joy within their family life, and also to enter into the fullness of the unique plan of God for their life to become productive and fruit-bearing members of the body of Christ.
The foundation of this ministry is built on the unequivocal Word of God and the Christian values of love and hope; without compromise the absolute authority on everything we believe is Jesus Christ and His Word.
Living Branch Ministries Statement Of Faith
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired infallible and authoritative Word of God. (2 Tim 3:16)
We believe that there is one eternal God, existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. (2 Cor 13:14)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Isa 7:14; John 1:14; 1 Cor 15; Mark 16:19; Rev 1:7)
We believe in the reconciliation of man to God through the substitutionary death and shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the universal fall of man means that salvation requires a person to be ‘born again’ through confession and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, leading to spiritual regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit.(John 3:3)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Rom 8:9; 1 Cor 6:19)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit to bestow spiritual gifts upon the body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:4-11)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:29)
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 1:10)
