Youth Mission Statement: Providing an excellent environment so that we may teach a foundation in the Word that will promote growth, commitment and a strong Love for God.
Youth Vision: Our goal is that each child is learning according to their own personal growth and relationship with God. In order to accomplish this we must consider that each phase in a child’s life requires different attention. The focus then becomes to create different phases for each group of children as they grow, as follows:
Foundational Teaching – In this phase is for all those that need to understand our Christian history. We achieve this by teaching the basics of the Word Of God by exploring each book of the Bible in its entirety. Taking them on a path into the lives of others that went before us and showing who God is to us.
Deeper Depths – For kids that want a deeper understanding, walk and desire of God. The children will then be taught a little more in depth to the Word of God according to the structure and belief system of the Main House, Greater Dreams. There will be a core curriculum followed as well as the child must gain permission from their parents to attend this class. Parents will know what is being taught in this class and upon approval, may at anytime request to sit in the classroom after a background check is given.
Discipleship – This is when we know that children have the basics down and has gone through the other 2 phases, whether they have been taught at home or by us. They will be tested to see where they are in their growth before going through this phase.
The kids that have tested accordingly will then be taken on a ONE on ONE journey with a proven and tested group of mature saints that will then disciple them for more growth in their walk with God. Parents MUST give permission in order for children to be discipled as well as the person assigned to them MUST work with parents in discipling the children.
NO ONE will be allowed to counsel these children WITHOUT the safety, permission, and knowledge of their parents. Parents WILL know everything that is being shared BEFORE they are allowed to share with each child. ANYONE violating this rule will IMMEDIATELY be dismissed from being the Disciples teacher.

Vision Statement – 7 Pillars of the Gospel (7 mountains: Religion, Business, Arts and ET, Government, Education, Family & Media)
The Lord said unto me, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Salvation A center dedicated first and foremost to preaching the Gospel of Salvation to the lost and backslidden in heart; stretching throughout all ecumenical and denominational boundaries. Mark 16:15-16

Greater Than Dreams Church – Statement of Belief
We believe the Bible and the scriptures of the Old and New Testament in its entirety & were given by the inspiration of God, are of Divine authority and the only rule of faith and practice and is the source of God’s blessings. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21, Hebrews 4:12)
We believein one true and living God: who is three distinct persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, all three eternal with the same in essence and equal in power and glory. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19) (Matthew 3:16, John 14:16, John 15:26)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, is true God and true man, lived a sinless life, provided atonement for our sins by His death on the cross, was crucified, died, buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, who forever makes intercession for us. (John 3:16, Matthew 1:18-20)
We believe in the transgression and fall of Adam; which sin came into the world; and in man’s inability to restore himself to the favor of God, which is only done through the shed blood of Jesus. We believe that sinners are only justified in the sight of God, by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ, which is unto all and upon all them that believe.
We believe there is one mediator between God and man, which is Jesus Christ, who by the satisfaction which he made to law and justice, “in becoming an offering for sin” that, when Jesus died on the cross, He became sin and sickness for us providing salvation and healing for all (Psalm 103:3) by his most precious blood, redeemed the elect from under the curse of the law, that they might be holy and without blame before Him in love. (Romans 5)
We believein the everlasting love of God to his people, effectually called, regenerated, converted, and sanctified; and are kept by the power of God, through faith, unto salvation.
We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and that He is the savior of the world.
We believethat the blood of Jesus shed on the cross allowed us to have an intimate relationship with God. It is through our faith and by his blood that we are saved. Salvation comes by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and by confessing with your mouth Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life (Romans 10:8-10, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 5:20-21)
We believe in Communion as a remembrance of what the Lord has done for us.
(Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25)
We believe in water baptism, being an outward sign of an inward work of faith, a statement to the world that a believer has died or put away the old ways of life and have been raised to a new way of life in Christ. (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as promised by Jesus Christ to all believers and is received subsequent to salvation, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. Believers are entitled to, and should expect and earnestly seek the promise. (Matthew 3:11, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8, 2:4, 2:38-39, Acts 19:1-7)
We believein total prosperity, Spirit, Soul (will, intellect, knowledge, and thinking), Body and natural needs. That God wants us to have a full life, free from poverty, sickness and disease. (3 John 2) Spiritual (John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 10:9-10) Mental (2 Timothy 1:7, Romans 12:2, Isaiah 26:3) Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24) Financial: We believe in tithing that it represents our love for God and we strive to honor Him in everything we do. (Malachi 3:8-12, Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:6-10) Philippians 4:19).
We believe in sanctification that is a progressive work of grace through the Word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit we can obtain this. We believe in personal holiness, purity of heart and life. We believe good works are the fruit of faith, and follow after justification, are evidences of a gracious state, and that is the duty of all believers to perform them from a principle of love. (Hebrews 12:14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 1 Peter 1:13-16, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14, 1 Corinthians 1:30)
We believein the laying of hands and in divine healing, through the prayer of faith in the Name of Jesus Christ (James 5:14-15, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24)
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment, of both the saved and the lost that will stand before God. We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ who will be visible to all and we believe that there will be a new heaven and new earth (Titus 2:13, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, Revelation 21:1, Hebrews 6:2, 2 Corinthians 5:10, 1 Corinthians 4:5, 1 Corinthians 15:42-44, Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:10-15)
