STATEMENT OF FAITH

MSW Ministries is an inter-denominational organization which promotes the unity that is found in Christ to the community at-large. Each team-member of MSW (though from varied religious backgrounds) takes our theology seriously. We share a commonality in the central beliefs of Christianity that proclaim salvation through Christ alone, and the importance of Holy Scripture (both the Old and New Testaments) as the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct.

We believe in …

  • Jesus Christ and the faith of the apostles as recorded in Holy Scriptures.

  • The church universal, and that we are a part of the community of believers that began with Jesus’ first followers, is alive today, and will continue until Jesus returns.

  • That salvation is by God’s grace, through faith, in Christ.

  • The necessity of new birth, Christ’s mandate to evangelize the world, and the necessity of education and formation in a Christian context.

  • Baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments of the church

  • A Trinitarian understanding of one God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • A dependence upon the Holy Spirit who enables our obedience to Christ, conforms us to his image, and empowers us to continue Christ’s mission in our world.

  • The reality of freedom in Christ that frees us to serve the community of faith and our world

MSW’s ministry team seeks to live out our theology by:

Serving Christ, the church and our world.
Worshiping God with all our heart, mind, soul, and being.
And sharing our faith with others, so they, too, will learn of God’s love and experience God’s joy.

RAVENSCROFT
A documentary about founder Bob Ravenscroft
and the 
development of MSW Ministries.
Bob and Gretchen Ravenscroft launched MSW Ministries (a private operating foundation) in 2006. 

For decades, Bob and Gretchen have been committed to the cause of Christ, the renewal of worship, and to supporting music and the arts that serve God's Word. An able and avid teacher, Bob has served on several university jazz studies faculties over the years. Additionally, he toured for a decade with the Christian ministry "Majesty." Today, Bob records an improvised musical and inspirational podcast called " Morning Glories;" he also performs with his group, The Bob Ravenscroft Trio. Transcending mere performance, Bob is always in pursuit of that special place where, as he says, "music serves the Word."
