To build and maintain an army of saints that will inflict severe and heavy casualties upon the enemy of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as directed by Bishop Lowe.
What We Believe
The Bible (the original writing}, in its entirety, is God's revealed Word, inerrantly inspired by
the Holy Spirit, and infallibly authoritative for all who submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
- That there is one God, the Creator and Sustainer of all life, eternally existent in three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried, is resurrected, and ascended into heaven, and is now seated at God's right hand. (Matthew 1:23, 28:6; Luke 1:31, 35, 24:39; Acts 1:9,11,2:33; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 15:21; Philippians 2:9-11, Hebrews 1:3)
In 1987, Bishop Jim Lowe was called to pastor The Guiding Light Church. Wanting to be certain that he remained in the will of God, Bishop Lowe agreed to pastor the church, temporarily, while he sought to see if this was really God’s will for his life. Located in the Woodlawn area of Birmingham, Alabama, the fifteen-member congregation faithfully attended church as Bishop Lowe diligently taught the Word of God.
