What We Believe


The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is divinely inspired by God, and is God's revelation of Himself to man. We believe that in it are the principles by which we are to live, and the measure for our faith and doctrine.

The Trinity

We believe in one true God who exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We also believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was sent to this earth to redeem humanity from sin. He was crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended to heaven, and is coming again.


We believe that salvation involves the redemption and transformation of the total man, and is available freely to all who believe in Jesus Christ. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.


We believe that water baptism is a symbol of the believer’s death to the power and bondage of sin and subsequent resurrection to newness of life in Jesus Christ.


We believe that in the taking of Communion, we remember incomparable the love of God that was extended towards in Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

The Kingdom

We believe in the sovereign rule, reign and authority of God in the life of believers. We believe that the Kingdom of God is within us and is manifested on earth as we faithfully obey Christ and His teachings.

What We Do


Paula White Ministries is a global ministry in both vision and reach. Utilizing the Internet, Television, Radio, Literature, and Public Speaking as its primary vehicles of communication. It is guided by the God-inspired vision of Paula White who founded it with a strong desire to see lives transformed for the better through relationship with God.

Paula White Ministries operates under the premise that the solutions to all of the problems we face in Life are rooted in discovering, nurturing, and propagating a lifestyle of engagement with God through Jesus Christ.

This premise can be broken down into 3 primary mechanisms of action-

What_We_Do_Pic21. We attempt to introduce people to the person of God found in Jesus
2. We then encourage a deeper understanding of that relationship by exploring and explaining the nature and principles of God, his Son, and his Spirit.
3. Finally, we act on that understanding as best we know how. These actions range from the practical efforts we undertake like our feeding programs for the hungry to the deeply spiritual collective recognition and celebration of God’s Holy Seasons.

Although our methods of delivery have and will continue to adapt, what we do does not change. It is truly an exciting privilege to do the work of the Lord!

Paula's Life Story


PAULA WHITE, pastor, teacher, author, international evangelist, inspirational figure, popular TV personality…woman of God. Known for her profound and dynamic Bible teaching, she is the host of the nationally syndicated program Paula Today. Transcending socioeconomic and denominational barriers, her powerful message of hope resonates among people from every walk of life.

With a faith undaunted by the task at hand, this mother, humanitarian and beloved mentor is also the Senior Pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, a non-traditional church with a multi-cultural mission whose membership ranges in the thousands. A gifted exhorter and motivator, the core of Paula’s message is “delivering spiritual truths that transforms lives”.

Small Beginnings

Born into a storybook life to an upper-middle class family in Tupelo, Mississippi, Paula's world shattered when, at the age of five, her father senselessly and suddenly died. The tragedy threw her family into dire straits, and her childhood became marred by poverty and feelings of abandonment, confusion, and betrayal. She experienced periods of abuse from the hands of strangers. As a teenage girl, Paula experienced deep feelings of shame and rejection. She coped by becoming an overachiever in school, winning the approval of her teachers, trying at every juncture to gain the approval of everyone around her. But nothing seemed to work. Around age 9, Paula’s mother remarried and the family moved to Maryland.



Once again, Paula’s world would change - this time for the better. At age 18, Paula was introduced to the Gospel, and became a Christian. The crushing weight of shame and rejection she’d carried as long as she could remember were gone. Paula held the Bible and said, “God, I don’t know you and I don’t even know myself. But I know the answers are in this book.” From there, her life began to transform radically as she studied the Bible and became involved in a local church. Then, she had a vision that she was to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world.

Early Ministry


Paula was moved by the plight of those who Jesus called “the least of these” and deeply yearned to touch those most in need. In the late 80s, she began ministering in the inner cities of Washington, D.C. By the early ’90s, she was in post-riot Los Angeles, sharing Jesus with children whose neighborhoods had been hardest hit by violence. In 1991, God called Paula to help co-found Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida - a ministry that went on to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. In 2001, she founded Paula White Media Ministry to reach the world with the message God had given her: a message that would “transform lives, heal hearts, and win souls.” Paula White Ministries had become definite in form and started to grow.

A Heart for Outreach

Passionately devoted to outreach, the ministry began by supporting the local community, holding feedings and giveaways, and vigorously seeking innovative ways to reach those in need. Today, Paula White Ministries supports hundreds of local and international outreaches and spearheads global mission outreaches. Paula White Ministries provided food, clean water, clothing, toiletries and transportation in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and supported ongoing rebuilding efforts. Just hours after the devastating January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Paula White Ministries worked through the orphanage in Haiti to provide food, clean water, and clothing, later providing tents as the masses continued to arrive during the rainy season, looking for help and shelter. The ministry provides ongoing, substantial support to many orphanages globally and is also a robust supporter of Feed the Children and Churches Helping Churches. Paula White was on the board for Safe Horizons non-profit organization, advocating for women and children who are victims of domestic violence. She partnered with Harlem’s Northside Center for Child Development, supporting their efforts to provide social services to underprivileged children and families.

Presently, Paula White Ministries is at work with its partners: building orphanages, schools, churches, clean-water wells, and feeding stations around the world; providing desperately needed medical care and ministerial training internationally; and organizing crusades, focusing on the most deprived areas, such as Haiti, Africa, and India.



Paula White continues to be an inspiration to millions around the world. She was featured as one of the five most innovative and effective church leaders of today in the book Holy Mavericks, Evangelical Innovators and the Spiritual Marketplace (Lee & Sinitiere, New York University Press). Her voice resonates loudly for the voiceless as she brings a message of salvation to the privileged as well as the destitute. Reaching beyond cultural and socioeconomic barriers, she fervently shares God’s transformative Word to touch the person within. Her message is for those seeking to discover their purpose in life, and designed to launch them into a destiny they could never have imagined. It’s obvious that "she understands, she’s been there, and she knows how to get out.” Her television program, "Paula Today,” reaches a potential viewing audience of 2.3 billion people worldwide, and she has been listed as one of the Top 50 "Most Influential Christians in America,” by The Church Report (2006).

In 2008, she performed the Invocation for the 40th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination in Memphis, Tennessee, and was a presenter at Maya Angelou’s 80th birthday tribute in Atlanta, Georgia.
