About Us

What is H.O.L.Y. Army?

Founded in 2003, H.O.L.Y. Army is a Christian ministry dedicated to helping train believers in the faith and presenting the Gospel message to all peoples.

What is H.O.L.Y. Army not?

We are not a church.
While run by members of the Church (Body of Christ), this cannot and does not replace being part of a local church in your own community. It is important that you connect with local believers to help you grow in your own walk with the Lord.

We are not a militia.
All military references & symbolism used are in regards to the nature of spiritual warfare, not earthly combat. Faith is a choice made by free will and cannot be received by way of coercion. We respect a person's right to reject belief in the Gospel message, even if we believe it to be the wrong choice. Prayer, not physical violence, is the response of the faithful.


H.O.L.Y. (as used in our name) is an acronym that stands for Harvesters Of Lord Yeshua. Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus and translates to "Salvation", or more specifically, "the Lord saves". This is the first and foremost principle of H.O.L.Y. Army in regards to the belief that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone. We recognize everyone's need for a Savior and endeavor to share the truth of the Gospel message that Jesus took the sin of the world upon himself, was crucified to pay the penalty of our sin, and was raised from the dead to be seated at the right hand of the Father in glory.

Luke 10:2
Then he said to them, "The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest.

Isaiah 6:8
I heard the Lord's voice, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am. Send me!"

In accordance with these Scriptures, we pray that the Lord not only sends laborers into the harvest, but that we might also be so called to serve.

Matthew 28:18-20
18 Jesus came to them and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.


Military and soldierly life symbolism is used within the Bible to describe an aspect of how we are to approach our walk with the Lord. There is a level of discipline required (and that will develop) as a person seeks after God and is built up in his or her faith, much the same as the discipline required of a soldier in an earthly army. However, key differences exist in the type of "soldiering" a Christian is called to in his or her spiritual walk. One of these is the type of "war" we are engaged in:

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don't wage war according to the flesh; 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds, 5 throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience when your obedience is made full.

Often times, these "strongholds" are in our own hearts and minds, which is why we are told to bring "every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ". While we develop discipline in doing this, it is ultimately not our own strength that brings us victory.

Ephesians 6:10-12
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

But why an "army"? It's because when we "wage war" in our daily lives (such as against stresses, struggles, and temptations), we are stronger together. We are called to confess to one another, pray for one another, and help one another.

Hebrews 10:24-25
24 Let's consider how to provoke one another to love and good works, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Finally, by coming together, this is where God meets us:

Matthew 18:20
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the middle of them."
