Statement of faith

Wingfield Ministries subscribe to the following statement of faith:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return to earth in power and glory.

We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely essential.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost - they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

In 1970, Steve Wingfield began to receive invitations to hold area-wide evangelistic meetings. Even while pastoring, he conducted two or three area-wide interdenomiational meetings each year. In 1983, after much prayer and counsel from many people, Steve and his wife Barbara answered God's call to full-time evangelism, thus giving birth to the present ministry. Steve had previously worked with Inter-Church, Inc. on crusades as a minister. Much of the ministry has been modeled after the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Wingfield Ministries is currently focused on our calling to reach the men, women, and young people who attend NASCAR races around the country. Through Victory Weekend, we are able to set up our mobile platform to entertain and inspire our fans with music that they love, share life-changing testimonies from NASCAR drivers, and deliver powerful messages from Steve Wingfield and others.

Wingfield Ministries is expanding its ministry outreach by including the Lodestar Mountain Inn. The inn will be a refuge for church leaders, youth groups, and dedicated business leaders to hold meetings, seminars, and retreats in a beautiful, natural setting and at a well-appointed and professional facility. Spending time outdoors at this restful refuge nurtures relaxation and refreshment for guests.

The newest addition to outreach, Lodestar Guidance, is an innovative program designed to teach key character principles to businesses, churches, and families. It highlights 48 principles, such as accountability, trustworthiness, sincerity, and integrity, to teach participants how to live and lead effectively.
