Friendship Assembly of God Core Beliefs
ASSEMBLIES OF GOD STATEMENT OF FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS
The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us. The phraseology employed in this statement is not inspired nor contended for, but the truth set forth is held to be essential to a full-gospel ministry. No claim is made that it covers all biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.
Our four core doctrines are:
The doctrine of salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverances, healings, and restored lives. Whether a new member or a mature Christian, every believer should have a clear understanding of salvation and the difference this truth makes in our lives and churches.
Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation as many believed following their healing.
Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preach, teach and practice this biblical truth. Scriptures command believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The doctrine of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as we continue to take the gospel message around the globe.
Second Coming of Christ
With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns, and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s second coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others.
