For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
(Colossians 1:16)

Several passages of the Bible confirm the fact that every human being was originally created by God and born into this world to fulfill God's purpose.

There is nothing like afterthought with God. Everything He does is purposeful and deliberate.Not only that,He has everything to the minutest detail, precisely tied to time.

He set each of us for His purpose in this generation.

Are you fulfilling God's purpose for your life?

Good morning.

Bible reading. (KJV)

Colossians 1


16. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Tenets
of the Church of Pentecost

1. The Bible


We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. That the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, comprehensive and all-sufficient in its provisions ( 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21)

2. The one True God


We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, maker of the whole universe; undefinable, but revealed as Triune God- the  Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14; Genesis 1:26, one in nature, essence, and attributes- omnipotent (Deuteronomy 6:4;
Job 42:2; Revelations 19:6; Isaiah 46:9,10); omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12; 147:5); omniscient (Isaiah 46:9-10; Job 42:2; Acts 5:4, 5).

3. Mens depraved nature


We believe that all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23; Genesis 3:1-19; Isaiah 53:6),  and are subject to eternal punishment (Romans 6:23; Matthew 13:41,42), and  need repentance ( Acts 2:38;17:30; Matthew 4:17; Acts 20:21) and regeneration ( John 3:3, 5; Titus 3:5).

4. The Savior


We believe man's need of a
Savior has been met in the person of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 1:21; John 4:42;Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6-11)


because of His Deity
(Acts 2:36; John 1:1;20:28; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13, 14; Isaiah 9:6)

Virgin Birth
(Isaiah 7;14;Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:25-26)

Sinless life
(John 8:46; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians5;21)

Atoning Death
(Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22; 1 John 2;2)

Resurrection
(Acts 2:36; 10:39-40; Matthew 28:5-7; Acts 2:24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

and Ascension
(Acts 1:9-11; 2:33-36)

His abiding intercession
(Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34) 

and His Second coming to judge the living and the dead 
(Revelations 22:12, 20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:1; Acts 1:11;10:42)

5. Repentance, Justification, Sanctification


We believe all men have to repent and confess their sins before God (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17;30; Luke 15:7),
and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ before they can be justified before God (Romans 4:25; 5:1). We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit ( 1 Corinthians 1:30; 6:11) and God's gift of eternal life to the believer ( Romans 6:23b; John 17:2, 3; 10:27, 28; 1
John 5:11-13).

6. The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's supper


We believe in the sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a  testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of  13 years (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:9, 10; 16:16; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38).


Infants and children are not baptized, but are dedicated to the Lord (Luke 2:22-24, 34; Mark 10:13-16). We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship (Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 26:21-29; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33).

7. Baptism, Gifts and Fruit of The Holy Spirit


We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues (Joel 2:28, 29; Acts 2:3, 4, 38-39; 10:44-46; 19:1-6).
And in the operation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12: 8-11; 28-30; Romans 12:6-8 and Galatians 5:22, 23).

8. Next Life


We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the Resurrection of the dead, both the saved and the
unsaved. They that are saved to the resurrection of life and the unsaved to the Resurrection of damnation  (Acts 1:11; 10:42; Mark 13:26; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; Romans 2:7-11; 6:23).

9. Tithes and Offerings


We believe in tithing and in the giving of freewill offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:6-10; Hebrews 7:1-4; Matthew 23:23; Acts 20:35; 1 Corinthians 16:1,2).

10. Divine healing


We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God's people in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:7-13;16,17; James 5:14-16; Luke 13:10-16; Acts 10:38; Mark 16:17,18). However, the Church is not opposed to  medication by qualified medical practitioners.
