dkWard [Creative] Evangelistic Ministries is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 religious organization (church) that is founded and directed by Pastor DaNine K. Ward.
We began in 1986 as the drama and dance department of the former local assembly;
the Christian Tabernacle Evangelistic Church of Cleveland, Ohio.
Between the years of 1986 and 2010, we were known as Lift-Him Ministries.
Once we officially established as a local assembly and expanded our services beyond the performing arts,
we became who we are now.
The counseling and guidance services we offer are strictly what is known as biblical-counseling.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God. We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one. We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.
Our Mission is to use sound-biblical teaching, the performing arts, and other creative programs and activities to encourage salvation through Jesus Christ and to help Believers grow in their faith. Our desire is the same as the Apostle Paul's: "Beloved, I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
The Apostle Paul said,
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
II Cor. 5:17
The Apostle John said,
"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your
soul is getting along well. 3 John 1:2
Jesus Christ himself said,
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. "
All this is to say, there is a new life planned for you and it is all wrapped up in God's will for you!
