History

Jubilee Evangelical Church was first organized and started in the home of the visionaries Pastor Seifu Kebede and Pastor Tsigiewengel Tekleab. It was incorporated in the State of Colorado on February 17, 2009. The Church was officially organized and began regular meetings in rented facility on June 25, 2009. Jubilee Church was recognized as an exempt under section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service code as of September 25, 2009.

Jubilee Evangelical Church made all efforts to secure its own facility of worship place. With the mighty hand of the Lord and His provisions it has purchased its own church building on 2575 Vine Street, Denver, Colorado 80205. Five Years after it was founded, Jubilee Evangelical Church became the soul owner of twelve thousand eight hundred square feet Church building on October 24/2013.

Today, Jubilee Evangelical Church conducts regular meetings and conferences in its own facility without any stress. We do give all the glory to the Lord Jesus Christ who answered our prayers and made it possible to attain an important milestone. Our Spiritual slogan “Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit says the Lord of Hosts” has been put into practice.

In general Jubilee evangelical Church is a Bible oriented, Christ centered, Holy Spirit empowered and called to heal and deliver people in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ. Again our guiding principle is “Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit says the Lord” (Zech. 4:6). Our strength is our belief that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever”. We proclaim that this is the season for miracles!! Amen!!

Founders

Pastor Seifu Kebede and Pastor Tsigiewengel Tekleab have been ministers of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for over forty-five years. They have been engaged in full time ministry for twenty eight years in US alone.

Pastor Tsigiewengel started a small Bible study group during their stay in Twin Cities, Minnesota which grew to be Ethiopian Evangelical Church today. At the early stage of the small fellowship Seifu and Tsigiwengel transferred the work to a committee and left for a new call in California.

Both moved to San Jose, California where they organized and operated Ethiopian Christian Fellowship Church for four years. Being led by the Holy Spirit, they accepted a call and moved to Dallas Texas to become pastor of Ethiopian Evangelical Church. The two labored and ministered to Ethiopians and Eritrean people in the area for seven years.

Receiving a call from the Lord to start an international ministry they organized and incorporated Divine Power Evangelistic Ministries in 1994. After a smooth transfer of power of the Church to leaders, they resigned and began to operate DPEM that has reached thousands of people around the world. They moved their Head Office and residence to Riverside California and operated the ministry for eight years. Besides the international ministry, they have assisted Churches by overseeing the work and advised leaderships to work in harmony. In May 2005 they moved their office and residence to Aurora Colorado which is a hub for several airlines. They were able to travel with less stress and reached several Churches on the globe.

The Lord led them and spoke to Pastor Seifu to begin Jubilee Evangelical Church. After receiving this new direction they started a fellowship in their home and finally moved to operate Jubilee Church in rented facility. Being promised by the Lord for a Church building they prayed and fasted to achieve this goal. Finally the Lord provided the facility on 2575 Vine Street, Denver, Colorado. It was their God given vision that brought the Church to its present position. Although, thing did not go smoothly it is still their dream to equip saints and prepare the younger generation for a full fledged anointed ministry.

Jubilee Church members are overburdened for new souls. They go through cities and testify about the saving power of the name of Jesus Christ. Their message has reached hundreds of ears in Denver metropolitan area. Evangelism is the goal of the Church. While preparing members for the coming Wind of the Spirit that will bring about the last day revival. Evangelism will remain to be the soul vision of the Church and we will reach nations.

What We Believe

We believe The Bible was written by the holy men of old divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is authoritative, perfect, reliable and inerrant Word of God. We accept the Bible as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to doctrine and conduct.

The Godhead
We believe that God exists eternally in the three persons of the Trinity. The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. We believe that God created the whole universe and made human beings in His own image.

God the Father
He is omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent. He is almighty and eternal creator of all things both visible and invisible.

The Lord Jesus Christ
He is the eternal Son of God. One with the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died for us on the cross, rose bodily from the grave, ascended into heaven and He intercedes for us. We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to earth to rupture His Church.

The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal. The Holy Spirit works in the lives of believers with all His various gifts, to empower the body of Christ to live a holy life and serve God until Christ returns. We believe that the promise of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire that empowered the followers of Jesus Christ is also for today. In so doing He helps us to carry out the Great Commission with signs and wonders.

Ordinance of Water Baptism
We believe baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct commandment of our Lord., and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

Ordinance of the Lord’s Supper
We partake of the Lord’s Supper to show the Lord’s death until He comes. The bread symbolizes the Lord’s broken body, the cup represents the new covenant in His blood which provides us forgiveness and relationship with God.
