What We Believe
The Foundational Truths of Elim Pentecostal Church
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that no one may add thereto or take away there from except at his or her peril.
We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and that these three are one God.
We believe that the Church consists of all persons who have been regenerated by the Holy Ghost and made new creatures in Christ Jesus.
We believe that all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God and that through the death and risen power of Christ, all who believe can be saved from the penalty and power of sin.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Healer of the body and that all who will walk in obedience to His will can claim Divine Healing for their bodies.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ baptizes in the Holy Ghost and that this Baptism with signs following is promised to every believer.
THE COMING KING
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will receive unto himself the Church and afterwards set up His Throne as King.
We believe that every believer on the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour should produce the nine fold fruit of his Spirit, Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness Faith, Meekness and Temperance.
We believe that the Church should claim and manifest the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Knowledge, Faith, Healing, Miracles, Prophecy, Discernment, Tongues and Interpretation.
We believe that God has appointed some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and some teachers for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry for the edifying of the Body of Christ.
THE FUTURE STATE
We believe in the eternal conscious bliss of all true believers in Christ and also in the eternal conscious punishment of all Christ rejecters.
We believe in the following ordinances: partaking of bread and wine in memory of our Lord’s death, baptism by immersion for believers, the laying on of hands and the anointing of the sick with oil.
