Red Earth Church








Red Earth Church in the Wilderness

Initially, a fellowship of Native Crow and non-Native believers met together at Yellowtail, MT under the ministry banner of Day Chief Ministries, Inc. for seven years. In March of 2004, the nuclear group of this fellowship agreed to be the board of a new work called the Red Earth Church in the Wilderness. The heart call of this ministry is the immersion of the believer into the Spirit of the Kingdom of God to shift the believer from being just a believer to the higher position of a being a believing disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. As a believing disciple of Jesus, the believer can now more effectively become like his literal Teacher, the Lord Jesus, and like his Teacher, do the works Jesus said he could do (John 14:12).

Red Earth Church’s statement of faith is summarized as follows:

We accept the Bible, in its entirety, as the written Word of God. There is one God: infinite, eternal, almighty, and perfect in holiness, life, light and love. In the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth who made man in His own image, to fellowship with Him and have dominion over His earth and everything upon it, over it and in the seas. Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the eternal Word made flesh, supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He is the only Savior for the sins of the world, having shed His Blood and died on Calvary's Cross. By His death in our place, He revealed the divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God. Having redeemed us from sin, the third day He rose bodily from the grave by the breath of the Father, victorious over death and the powers of darkness. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and, through the proclamation of the gospel, He persuades men to repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord.

Man’s response to the gospel is rooted and grounded in the free and unconditional love of God. Salvation, the free gift of God, is provided by grace alone, through faith alone, because of Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. The Church is not a religious institution or denomination, but rather, it is made up of those who have become genuine disciples of Jesus Christ and exists to faithfully express the Kingdom of God on the Earth, and to advance the Victory of Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth. The ultimate mission of the Church is equipping disciples to become functional worship-warrior sons of God through the preaching and teaching of the gospel. In the context of the local church, God's people have an opportunity to employ their God-given gifts in His service in relation to one another and to the world. In obedience to Christ's command and as a testimony to God and the world, a believer should be immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Water baptism is a visual demonstration of a person's spiritual union with Christ in the likeness of his death and resurrection.

The specific mission of Red Earth Church in the Wilderness is:
Provoke and shift every believer to being believing disciples of Jesus to reach new levels of growth and maturity through the increasing openness of the spiritual heart and spiritual will to God, our Heavenly Father;

To promote true corporate “community of unity” living in the newness of spiritual, supernatural life through the avenue of the real Gospel of the Kingdom of God;

In practical ways, help disciples understand how to co-labor with the Word, Spirit and Blood of Christ to effect change and personal transformation within their own personality, and then carry the authority gained to effect change in their families;

Connect disciples in righteous alignment of authorities to affect transformation of the spiritual landscape whether it is their neighborhood, city or region; to help disciples understand Biblical strategies for spiritual warfare to include recognizing and understanding how evil is anchored in the spiritual landscape through ancient defilements;

To train believing disciples of King Jesus on how to break the power-grid of iniquitous religious structures, and deliver the landscape from evil’s hold through the exercise of a believer’s dominion authority in accordance with Romans 8:21: . . .that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God.” ASV
