Life Empowerment Deliverance Ministries

ABOUT THE MINISTRY

Our Motto: “The Best is Still Yet to Come”!

Life Empowerment Deliverance Ministries is a church about SOULS and building on the solid Rock – Jesus. We are a nondenominational church (on the go, grow and know) located in Miami Gardens Florida. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. We believe that “tongues” is a gift and it’s NOT a prerequisite for salvation. We believe in Prophesying/Prophetic Utterances and operating in the Supernatural. We also believe in letting the people of God express themselves in whatever way they may feel comfortable. The HEART of our church is comprised of Love, Prayer, Praise, Worship, Intercession, Deliverance, Giving, Fellowship and Unity. We flow according to the move of the Holy Spirit – He is in charge.  If you are use to a program and a dead end church, you will not feel comfortable at Life. We believe in discipleship and advancing the kingdom of God through Salvation, the Word of God, along with Networking/Business Opportunities. 

History

With the vision to inspire and reach the lost at all costs, Life Empowerment Deliverance Ministries was founded as the Holy Spirit inspired Pastor/Prophetess Katrika and Andrew Hamilton to establish a work of God in the Miami Gardens area. The ministry was officially organized as a non-profit church on October 11, 2012. The first formal church service was conducted on June 2012 in our home, in Miami Gardens Florida. The church then moved from our home to its current location (18966 NE 4th Court Miami Gardens FL 33169). 

We are growing and as God enhances his servants’ vision, we look forward to moving to a brand new facility within the next five years.

And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

- Acts 24:7
