WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, in His vicarious and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension, and in His personal return to power and glory upon the earth.
We believe regeneration and conversion through faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity.
We believe water baptism is not a saving ordinance but is essential in obedience to the Gospel and should be administered by immersion.
We believe the gospel includes holiness of heart and life, healing of the body, and a definite personal experience with the Holy Spirit whereby the gifts of the Spirit become active in the life of the believer. This work of the Holy Spirit is for men, women, and children.
We believe in the present and future manifestation of God’s kingdom on the earth; in the present authority and ministry of the church, and in the future, under the rule and reign of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of believers at the end time and the judgement of all mankind; the just unto eternal life and the unjust into eternal damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the full function of the five-fold ministry which was given to perfect and equip the saints so they can enter into the work of their ministry, thereby edifying the whole body of Christ. (Eph. 4:11-13)
We believe both men and women may be called to function in church ministry without restriction due to gender. (Rom 16:1-15, Gal 3:26-28, Acts 2:17-18)
We believe in the sanctity of life.
We believe marriage is a holy sacrament ordained by God as a union of one man and one woman in covenant relationship. (Gen 1:27-28, 2:23-24, Mt. 19:4-6)
We believe there are other God-called fellowships, organizations and associations of which Global Christian Ministry Forum Canada is one of many.
