Our purpose in word, in deeds, and by example is to with all readiness, provide Hazel Crest Assembly Church service as it relates to the "Ministry of Souls". We primarily aid candidates in the process of salvation by water baptism (in Jesus name) and receiving of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in another tongue as the spirit of God gives utterance. In addition, we aid the body of Christ in reconciliation, restoration, and healing (physical and spiritual) by breaking the yokes and strongholds of the devil, setting the captives free, and loosening the bands of wickedness through the effectual operations of the gifts of the spirit, anointing of oil, laying on of hands, prayer and fasting.
