Complete history and vision of Church14 from the desk of Rob Radosti:
In February 2018, the Lord gave a dream that radically shifted the direction of our ministry! (“Kingdom Dwellers International” since 2010, “Messiah’s Misfits” from 2007.) I saw thousands of people worshipping together in “happy holiness”, full of grace and power – with millennials at the forefront of the movement. As I watched, I saw folks from all walks of life and religions rushing to experience Jesus in all of His beauty, and detoxing from the many lies that they believed about God! When I looked up, I saw a banner that read “Church14.” As I looked back down, it was as if the eyes of the whole generation were on me asking “now what?” The dream was so vivid and the presence of God was so strong. I told my wife Millie, and then I began to ask the Lord about the dream. “What is Church14?” I asked. “Acts Chapter 14 will give you the answer” replied the Lord. I hurriedly grabbed my Bible and flipped open to Acts 14, and there… I found it.
“At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed. But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the other Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to perform signs and wonders. The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.” Acts 14:1-4
I immediately noticed that in the face of opposition, they decided to stay LONGER focusing on the message of GRACE. The results are signs and wonders – and division.
“I am calling out an Acts 14 people” said the Lord. “Those who fearlessly carry the message of my grace will be faced with opposition but when this happens, resolve to remain longer to bring true reformation. Signs and wonders will happen among the people!”
I met Jesus and was delivered from the occult in 2001, but it was not until 2011 that I was wrecked by Jesus’ Grace and the reality of the New Creation. I had been faced with opposition to our message ever since 2011, and me and my wife usually ended up having to flee town because of such rigorous religious persecution. The Lord said that enough was enough. He said that if we stand strong and preach grace straight, He will raise up a worldwide Acts 14 people. A people who stay longer in the face of religious or satanic opposition to ensure that every last soul has the opportunity to be wrecked by grace such as we have been. We launched the movement 4/20/18 and met once a month in different locations. My Detox book was released 7/4/18, and we began teaching classes in our Church14 Online Family group on Facebook. It was in 2011 that God gave us a heart for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and he has now moved us here nine years later to plant roots for the headquarters of the Church14 movement and have a hub where folks can get wrecked together, get training, be family and also where we can get the message of His grace out to the nations via media missions.
This Acts 14 people, Church14, is a worldwide movement – and we are only one piece of this glorious puzzle called the Kingdom – but we are ready to demolish every last stronghold that keeps people in destructive doctrines and holds them in condemnation.
Our slogan is “It’s a movement, it’s a family, it’s a Holy Ghost party.”
Our vision statement is:
“Establishing a healthy five-fold community empowered by His grace, bringing reformation to the church and society.”
We are committed to the ministry of reconciliation, detoxing bad doctrine and helping folks walk in the fullness of their union with Jesus Christ.
We would love to see you at one of our events on the road, in our Facebook group or at our home hub! We meet locally every Sunday at 2 PM at 1286 Surfside Industrial Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29575, and we have regular live studies and online groups that meet and well. You can join our Facebook group “CHurch14 Online Family” to get plugged in if you are not local to the Grand Strand area. Church14 is a people, not a building in any certain city.
Your partnership greatly helps us move forward!
We recognize the sovereign authority of the 66 canonized books of Holy Scripture, and acknowledge dependence upon the Holy Spirit for their accurate interpretation and application.
Jesus Christ is the Word (Logos) of God. He was with God in the beginning, and He pre-existed as one with God. “By Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth” (Col. 1:16). Jesus Christ is the Purpose of God found in all of creation. Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. In the beginning, it was the ultimate purpose of God for all things to be summed up in Christ (Eph. 1:10).
Jesus Christ pre-existed with God and as God (John 1:1). He emptied Himself to become fully a man that He might be the expiatory sacrifice to deliver mankind from sinfulness. Because the first man, Adam, transgressed the command of God, the process of death entered him and all of his descendants and mankind lost fellowship with God. Mankind was incapable of reversing this course of self-destruction. All men became alienated from God in their minds because of their evil behavior (Col. 1:21). But God is love and was never man’s enemy — planning from the foundation of the world to redeem humanity in the finished work of the Son. Through Christ’s sacrifice made on the cross, all of sinful humanity died with him (2 Cor. 5:14, Rom. 6:6, Heb. 2:9). From God’s perspective, humanity is now forgiven, cleansed and reconciled to God. We the “Church” are those who now actively partake in this forgiveness and remission of sins, living in fellowship with God, thanks to the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. Unbelievers continue to wander in darkness until they believe on The Lord Jesus Christ.
“There is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (I Timothy 2:5). There is only one avenue of fellowship with God, which is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the covenental relationship between God and man.
The resurrection of Jesus’ physical body after His crucifixion was literal, as will be the resurrection of all mankind. We believe in a literal return, a second coming of Christ.
We believe in a loving Father, manifest through the Son in the power of the Holy Spirit. The death of Christ was required to save us from sin and death, not from a vengeful Father. The Father did not need to be conditioned to love mankind or to be gracious to man. God is only capable of love. Even His wrath is an extension of His love, opposing every obstacle to love. The death of Christ was not appeasing an angry Father. The Son came not to purchase the Father’s love for the world, but as an expression of His love for the world. The cross was to change humanity; the Father did not require changing. The Father was not forsaking the Son on the cross, but Christ was experiencing humanity’s blindness to the Father’s love on the cross — fully empathizing with the human condition and destroying man’s alienation and depravity in His own servant body. The Father did not turn His back on the Son nor to anyone. The Father was in Christ, reconciling the cosmos to Himself (2 Cor. 5:19). To see Jesus is to see the full expression of the love of the entire Trinity. Jesus is a perfect representation of the Father’s love. We believe that our Father has always been for all of mankind and that His desire is that none would perish. He is a Father who would rather die than live without His children.
We believe in a continual infilling (baptism, immersion, outpouring) of the Spirit and the accompanying gifts, power to witness, graces and fruit of the Spirit. We accept, acknowledge and encourage all of the biblical gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit as present and vital for the church to accomplish her full purpose today. We believe Holy Spirit reveals Jesus. We believe that physical, emotional and spiritual healing are all available through the person and work of Jesus Christ on the cross revealed by the power of Holy Spirit. We believe in the present-day operation of the miraculous in the church today and that Supernatural Christianity is normal, Biblical Christianity. We believe that the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power (1 Cor. 4:20). We believe in the person of Holy Spirit, worthy of worship in equal stature with Father and Son in the Godhead, yet never separate. He is to be the believers best friend.
God is three persons, inseparable yet distinct. The doctrine of the Trinity means means God is not alone. Within the being of God is a relationship — three persons in a mutual union of love without loss of personal distinction. Anything less than “one” negates the depth and closeness of their communion. The Father does not become the Son or Spirit and the Son and Spirit do not become one another or the Father. It is a relationship of oneness, but not of absorption.
We believe that The Church of Jesus Christ is the thriving force of His Glory on the earth. The chief purpose of man is to bring God pleasure by enjoying Him forever. We believe God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him! The kingdom priority of our lives is to walk in intimate communion with Him, and we can do this together in unity as The Body of Christ on the earth.
Church14 is obsessed with His grace. So… how do we reach the lost? Do we get people “saved?” What is our formula? Below you will find our doctrinal statement on the ministry of reconciliation, followed by a link to download a PDF if you would like a copy:
