faith christian center: Beliefs

Here are ten principals that Faith Christian Center believes in.

1. We believe the Scripture as contained in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible is the inspired and Sovereign Word of God, the rule of living and statement of all Truth, not to be added to or taken away from.

2. We believe in one God expressed in the Truine God-head: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe that Jesus Christ is the infinite God/Man- Son of God and Son of man, totally Devine and totally human without contradiction of sin.

4. We believe that Jesus, Himself personally sinless, became our substitute and Sacrifice for our sin on the Cross, accepting the guilt, penalty and judgment for our sin in our place; being made sin that we could be made the Righteousness of God in Christ.

5. We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and the third day arose physically from the dead, victorious over death, hell, and the grave; having broken the power of sin over mankind and totally defeated Satan and all the powers of darkness.

6. We believe when Jesus ascended into Heaven, he gave gifts unto men purchased by the Work of Redemption; believing that Salvation (being born-again), healing, deliverance, and the fullness and indwelling of the Holy Spirit are to be received by Believers as gifts of God�s grace through faith.

7. We believe that God does not change, that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that He is no respecter of persons; what He will do for one, he will do for all.

8. We believe God has set the five-fold ministry into the Church: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ..

9. We believe that the Gifts and Ministries of the Holy Spirit as recorded in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 are operative in the Church today, as the Spirit wills, and that they are the tools God has given for the building up of the Body of Christ.

10. We believe in the rapture of the church and the personal physical second coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth, the Great White Thorne Judgment, and the end of the age.

brief history

Faith Christian Center is a Full Gospel, non-denominational church, which was founded as a result of the Holy Spirit�s moving upon the hearts of Christians of various denominations, who had a hungering in their hearts for the uncompromised word of God.

It began as a Bible study and was quickly expanded into regular church services, which were held in the back of a pharmacy at the corner of mission and Grove streets. The church was officially chartered in 1985, and was relocated to its present address in September 1986.
