THE STATEMENT OF FAITH OF FAITH POWER PENTECOSTAL MINISTREIS-UGANDA [FPPM-U]

THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible is God’s word, that it was written by men divinely inspired and that it is supreme infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct. Custom or man’s tradition or opinion should not be contrary to the spirit and teaching of scripture. (II Timothy 3:16)

THE TRIUNE GOD.

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. (I Timothy 1:17, John 1:14, 4:24)

a) We believe in one God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that he hears and answers prayers and that he saves from sin all that come to Him through Jesus Christ. Leviticus 11:44, Psalms 39, 50:1)

b) We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of God conceived of the Holy Spirit of Virgin birth, sinless in his life, making atonement for the sins of the world by his death on the cross. His present mediation work and his visible personal return to the world (John 3:16, Luke 31-32, John 1:14, Acts 8:37, John 14:3)

c) We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, whose ministry is to glorify Christ to convict the world of sin and to regenerate, indwell, sanctify, comfort and empower those who believe in Christ (John 6:63, 15:26, 16:7-14, 5:1, Romans 8:9, 13:16, I peter 1:12, I Corinthians 12:7-11)

SALVATION AND FORGIVENESS

We believe that all men by nature and by choice are lost sinners and can only be saved by accepting Christ as Lord and Savior, through faith apart from works. We believe in the body resurrection from the dead, of the believer to everlasting life and blessedness and joy with the Lord in Heaven and of the unbeliever to everlasting punishment and separation from God in Hell. (John 3:16, Romans 5:8-12, John 17:3, Ephesians 2:1-9, Revelations 20:11-15, John 5:28-29) We believe that sinners should repent their sins and receive a free gift of salvation, which is given freely through faith.

THE CHURCH

We believe in the Church as a living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and of which all regenerated people are members. (Corinthians 1: 8). We believe that FAITH POWER PENTECOSTAL MINISTRIES is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, Baptized by immersion upon other personal confession. We believe that each Church is committed to observe the two ordinances of the Bible, Baptism and the Lord’s Table that human betterment and social improvements are inevitable by products of the Gospel. We further believe that each local Church is an autonomous democracy, with members possessing equal rights and privileges and that no individual or organization within or outside the Church has authority over it. Such that Churches may and do co-operate together through various organizations on matters of common concern and interest in building the kingdom of God.

THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

We believe that the only two ordinances that Christ gave to the Church are Baptism and the Lord’s Table. These are both symbolic in meaning and to teach Spiritual truth. They do not posses or impart any saving virtue to the partaker.

a) BAPTISM

Baptism should be administered to those who have already believed in Christ as savior and Lord. Baptism is by Immersion only. It pictures the death of the believer to his sin and the new life that he has in Christ. (Romans 6:3-10), Colossians 2:12)

b) THE LORD’S TABLE

The Lord’s Table is a memorial ordinance to be observed by believers in remembrance of the death of Christ our Lord for our sins, I Corinthians 11:24.


THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND THE STATE

a) We believe that all Christians should be faithful citizens and obedient to the state Government; in up holding and maintaining the law of the state. Government is ordained by God. We believe that every human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith, that each Church is independent and autonomous and should be free from interference by an ecclesiastical or political authority, while at the same time every Church must co operate with, up hold, and implement the civil laws, policies and programs of the Government, seeing that they are for the good of the whole man. (Acts 6:1-7, Romans 13:1-7, 14:7-12, Titus 3:13-14, Mathew 2:21)
