I am a Pastor
I help average Christians – people just like you – understand spiritual warfare to be able to be victorious when the enemy attacks. This requires understanding four things:
- Why spiritual warfare is important to every Christian.
- What spiritual warfare is and isn’t.
- How to recognize a satanic attack.
- How to resist and quickly end any satanic attack.
Info on To Every Nation Ministries
To Every Nation Ministries is an IRS approved 501c3 not for profit corporation founded by Ward Cushman in 2013. Our mission is proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, introducing people to his love and teaching how to live as a follower of Jesus Christ. One of our key objectives is to equip all Christians world wide to learn how to stand firm in the faith in the face of adversity.
The Stand Firm Seminar is a key element of this ministry. Stand Firm teaches about spiritual attacks on our thought life from our three spiritual enemies, the world, the flesh and Satan and his followers. The goal of the Stand Firm Seminar is for people to realize what these attacks are so we can recognize and resist them and stand firm in our faith. Our doctrinal statement is at the bottom of this page.

To Every Nation Ministries Doctrinal Statement
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who know, love, and glorify one another. This one true and living God is infinitely perfect both in his love and in his holiness. He is the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy to receive all glory and adoration. Immortal and eternal, he perfectly and exhaustively knows the end from the beginning, sustains and sovereignly rules over all things, and providentially brings about his eternal good purposes to redeem a people for himself and restore his fallen creation, to the praise of his glorious grace.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, moved by love in accordance with the will of the Father, became a human being by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, and is both true God and true man. As a perfect sinless man and God in the flesh, Jesus Christ was crucified and died in our place, arose visibly and bodily from the dead three days later and ascended into heaven so that we can become children of God by faith in Him. We believe that Jesus is with God our Father as our Advocate and High Priest, and in His future personal, physical return in power and glory when he will exercise his role as a final judge and His kingdom will be consummated.
We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He draws the unredeemed to repentance and faith, and at salvation imparts new spiritual life to the believer, bringing that person into union with Christ and the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit sanctifies, seals, fills, guides, instructs, comforts, equips, empowers, permanently indwells at salvation, and bestows spiritual gifts to the believer for Christ-like living and service.
We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God, without error in the original writings and the ultimate authority in faith and life. The Bible tells us the greatest story ever told about God’s amazing and loyal love for us. We believe the Bible to be God’s gift to humanity so that we can know God intimately and live in His presence. It also instructs us on godly living and how to be right with God and with our fellow human beings.
We believe that human beings, both male and female, were created in the image of God. We believe that by falling into sin through Satan’s temptation, Adam and Eve distorted that image and forfeited the original blessing of God for themselves and all of humanity who now experience both physical and spiritual death so that all human beings are born with a sinful nature. It is only by faith in Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit that a person is saved.
We believe that those who have become children of God through regenerative faith in Christ are united in one spiritual body, the body of Christ, the Church. The Church meets in local assemblies (the local church) for the purpose of glorifying God through worship, study of the Bible, fellowship, sharing the Gospel with others, and making disciples. As such, we believe the local church to be the change agent within our culture.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved to live in the blessed presence of the Triune God forever and in the resurrection of the lost to live in eternal torment separated from God forever.
