Our Statement of Faith
The following are the core beliefs of Family Worship Center Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
The Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
We believe that the redemptive operation of the Holy Ghost upon the sinner is brought about by repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Infilling of the Holy Spirit
We believe that being filled with the Holy Spirit is an experience subsequent to salvation and sanctification and that speaking in tongues is the consequence of the baptisms of the Holy Spirit.
Communion, also known as The Lord's Supper is symbolic of the last supper and is a memorial of the death of Christ on the cross.
We believe in the doctrine of the rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ when Christ shall appear in the sky to catch-up His saints.
Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands.
Water baptism is necessary as instructed by Christ; however, we do not believe that water baptism alone is a means of salvation.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
