Cast 'em Off Ministries was started in 2015 by Brandon Schwin. We are dedicated to helping people get free from the spiritual chains that come from addiction, depression, abuse, and all other conditions that create separation between us and the freedom that comes through Jesus Christ.
Our statement of faith is as follows:
The Bible is the living word of God. It was given and is preserved by the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is infallible, inerrant and the only authoritative scripture God has given.
The one and only God is the God of the Bible. God is triune in nature. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. God is everlasting, Immortal, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient and all that the scriptures reveal about God.
Jesus Christ is God in human flesh, that he is Savior and Lord over the world. Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, fulfilled Old Testament prophecy, spoke the words of God and performed the works of God. Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross, shed his blood, and gave his life for the sins of humanity. Jesus died, was entombed, and rose from the dead just as the scripture prophesied and declare. Jesus is the only Savior of the world and is the head of his body, the Church. Jesus will return to the Earth to rule and reign for 1000 years.
Salvation is by repenting of your sins, renouncing your past, and putting your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Salvation is by faith and not by works and when a person repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit is given to reside in the new believer. In this way, a person is born again by the power of God and the Holy Spirit comes to live inside them. All believers should in obedience to the Word of God be baptized in water to proclaim their faith in Christ. Baptism does not save you but is a visible way of declaring the salvation you already have by your faith in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit is God, He comes to live in the believer who receives Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and live a Spirit filled life. The Spirit of God indwells the believer and the body of Jesus Christ worldwide, He guides, teaches, helps, empowers, gives spiritual gifts, reminds, leads and convicts the world of sin-righteousness and judgment.
The Church is the body of Jesus Christ made up of all believers in Jesus Christ and are, by the Holy Spirit, baptized into the body of Christ at the moment of salvation. The Church is to be a witness to the world in love and truth, is to be in mission reaching the world for Christ, and is to teach and disciple all believers equipping them into the full ministry of Christ.
Spiritual warfare is central to the life of the believer and the Church. All believers should be taught spiritual warfare awareness, have on the full armor of God, know their authority in Christ, and should be involved in battling satan and demons. Believers should provide deliverance from demons for those that need it. Being equipped in Biblical spiritual warfare leads the believer and the Church to gain victory and fullness in Christ.
Spiritual giftings should be received and used as from the beginning of the Church. Spiritual gifts and all workings from the Holy Spirit should be welcomed and performed in harmony with the Word of God. Believers should be aware of counterfeit works and gifts. Improper uses of gifts must be corrected and all counterfeit acts by masquerading demons are to be discerned, exposed and rejected. Purity in life, words and ministry must be sought.
Biblical prophecy and the end of days should be understood by the Body of Christ. Biblical prophecy is urgent for the times we are living in. Biblical prophecy should be use to empower, purify, and build up the believer in Christ. Biblical prophecy can be a powerful tool help evangelize the world.
Jesus Christ is the Messiah and will return to take up the Body of Christ to be with him. Christ will visibly return as revealed in Revelation 19. The second coming of Christ will end the reign of evil and end fallen world history. Christ shall come to rule and reign for 1000 years and then the great white throne judgment will occur.
Believers in Christ are to be conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ by performing good works, being a witness to the world, and living lives that honor Christ. All believers will appear before the judgment seat of Christ. All believers are to seek and grow in Christ, learn the Word of God, and seek fellowship with other believers and live lives that are an example to the world.
