What We Believe

WE BELIEVE that there is ONE LIVING AND TRUE GOD, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

WE BELIEVE that the SCRIPTURES of the Old and New Testament are the Word of God fully inspired, and the infallible rule of Faith and practice; and that they are to be interpreted according to their context and purpose and in reverent obedience to the Lord who speaks through them in living power.

WE BELIEVE in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death, all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth. We believe that in His first coming Jesus inaugurated the fulfillment of the kingdom of God.

WE BELIEVE in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the biblical gifts of the Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that all MEN are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation, that God regenerates and baptizes by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

WE BELIEVE in the universal CHURCH, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated people are members.

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ORDINANCES to the church; baptism; and the Lord’s supper. We believe in water baptism and communion open to all believers.

WE BELIEVE also in the LAYING ON OF HANDS for empowering of the Holy Spirit, for receiving of gifts of the Spirit, for healing, and for recognition and empowering of those whom God has ordained to lead and serve the church.

WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible APPEARING OF CHRIST to earth and the consummation of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and the eternal punishment of the wicked.

WE BELIEVE in what is termed: “THE APOSTLES’ CREED” as embodying fundamental facts of Christian faith, and endorse the historic orthodox creeds of the church.

BSSM Cleveland Atmosphere

BSSM-Cleveland is a Holy Spirit driven ministry school where students of all ages come to learn how to extend the borders of God’s Kingdom through a supernatural lifestyle. BSSM-Cleveland is a multi-generational school with participants ranging from age 18 (or high school graduates) into 80’s and beyond. One of BSSM Cleveland’s core values is honor, which manifests through joining the generations and teaching every age group to value and serve one another.
We create an atmosphere of worship centered around the presence of God. We live each day in adoration of King Jesus and in response to all He has done. We have a high value for purity, power and the presence of The Lord. These values go into all we do.

The school joins together academic understanding and hands-on experience. This creates a do and teach culture where all students are expected to take risks to stretch their faith and grow in their understanding of God. BSSM-Cleveland believes the Bible is an invitation into an experience with the Lord as students are challenged to live the Bible. This produces an environment that often feels like a laboratory where students practice the things they are being taught. Instructors coach the process in a safe environment.

Once the students gain confidence and experience within the safety of the classroom, they are sent out on outreaches into the community. These outreaches include ministry to neighborhoods and hospitals, feeding the poor, and street evangelism. Excitement and faith are stirred as students take their supernatural ministry into the community and return to class to share testimonies and debrief. Students are encouraged to cheer one another on toward the greater works Jesus described in John 14:12.

Boldness, passion, and risk define BSSM-Cleveland’s atmosphere and are evident in our worship, ministry, and relationships with each other.


At BSSM we work to build a community that is a source of encouragement and strength for all involved. We serve a God who has never been alone and creates out of community. It is our belief that relationship is a catalyst to growth and development in our walk with God.

Academic Life

BSSM is a unique environment that emphasizes hands-on training and experience as well as academic understanding. There are multiple avenues within BSSM to further learning and experience.

  • AMTs (Advance Ministry Trainings) are focused, elective style classes that teach and train you to walk in Kingdom power and values.
  • City Service is a weekly outreach into the city to minister the love and power of Jesus. These include but are not limited to ministering in local hospitals, retirement centers, prophetic art outreaches, treasure hunts and ministry to those in need.

A Letter From Pastor Steve

letter from Steve WittWe are very excited and thankful for your consideration of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry – Cleveland. BSSM-Cleveland is an affiliate of BSSM Redding. It is our full intention to capture the heart of revival as it has been expressed in Redding, California, and insert it into a thirsty urban environment.

In 2009, Heidi Baker prophesied over the Cleveland area stating, “hundreds of thousands of people will be swept into the kingdom.” Bob Jones, Ryan Wyatt, and many others have prophesied about a training place on the property which will house our BSSM. Revival is here and we are ready!

This school is being created to fulfill the prophetic mandate given and position ourselves under Heaven for the coming rain. A primary focus of this school will be to learn Biblical truths and then activate them in every area of life.

We are a learning culture. We want to see region-wide transformation. Our city stands ready. Maybe you are one of the ones who will stand with us on the wall and see history being made.

Come join us in Cleveland, a great American city, with a Kingdom mandate.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call. Hope to see you in the fall!

Steve Witt
Senior Leader, Bethel Cleveland

– Bob Jones, Seer Prophet

“I have been privileged to speak to the students at BSSM-Cleveland. It’s wonderful to see the students hungry for all the things of God and to see the school faculty up to the task of taking them into new revelations of God and walking out an everyday life of the supernatural with them. To teach in the 1st year BSSM one year and come back the next year and see the growth in those who have gone onto the 2nd year program is very encouraging. I would highly recommend the school to anyone that would like to grow in the Lord.”

– Judy Franklin, Administrative Assistant to Bill Johnson, author of “Heaven’s Physics,” and “Experiencing the Heavenly Realm.”

“BSSM Cleveland will be one of the most exciting places for training in the MidEast. Steve Witt’s approach to ministry and ministry training has always been out of the box, and I can only imagine the vision and creativity that will influence and undergird this ministry. I would and will highly recommend this as the place to be for those looking for advanced ministry training”.

– Bishop Joseph L. Garlington, Sr., PHD, Sr. Leader of Convenant Church, Pittsburgh, PA

“Steve’s love for God, lifetime of ministry experience, and passion for the local church and local community are a compelling mix. I have no doubt that this school will equip you for life, whether you are called to ministry, business, raising a family, or all three. The model which will be portrayed in front of you every day will ignite your passion for Jesus, revival, and a life that makes a difference as you are not just taught, but shown how to live with power, prophetic gifting, integrity, and passion.”

– Paul Manwaring, Director of Global Legacy, Bethel Church, Redding, CA
