What We Believe

As the Pastor, Ministers, Staff, and Congregation of Power of Gospel Church:

  • We believe the whole Bible is God’s truth and final authority for all situations and circumstances. 2 Timothy 3:16
  • We believe that we walk by faith and not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
  • We believe that God has given us an inheritance while here on earth that is total prosperity: Spiritual, Mental, Physical, Financial, and Social. Ephesians 1:11
  • We believe God is triune. There is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. All three are equal and eternal. Matthew 3:16
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. John 1:1-3 ; John 1:14; John 20:31
  • We believe that our only hope of salvation is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is a result of you believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Romans 10:9
  • We believe that the evidence of salvation in a believer is living a holy life and loving your neighbor as God has loved you. Furthermore, salvation is by faith alone, a gift given by the grace of God; however, our works are evidence of our faith, for faith without works is dead. John 13:34; Hebrews 11:1; Hebrews 11:6
  • We believe that repentance is available to every person, every day. Matthew 9:13; Acts 3:19
  • We believe that Baptism by water is symbolic, to the world, of rebirth, that a believer has died with Christ and has been born again as a new creature. Matthew 28:19; John 3:3; Romans 6:4
  • We believe that all believers have a right to and should diligently seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit provides the believer with the power to live a holy and love filled life for service, as well as the access to the gifts and their use in ministry. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is separate from and comes after salvation. Acts 1:8
  • We believe that the evidence of being Baptized in the Holy Spirit is the initial supernatural sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and then by the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in public testimony and for service through prophecy, interpretation of tongues, the message of wisdom, the message of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, miraculous powers, discernment of spirits and speaking in tongues. 1 Corinthians 14; 1 Corinthians 12
  • We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and all believers are to learn the Word of God and be functioning members of the body. 1 Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:21
  • We believe that term “marriage” has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 7:2
  • We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. 1 Corinthians 7:2
  • We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God. Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:26, 27
  • We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:7
  • We believe that Jesus is coming back again for the church. Those who have not confessed Jesus as Lord will suffer eternal separation from God. Romans 14:9
