Beliefs/Salvation

Beliefs

The Church of God of Prophecy is firm in its commitment to orthodox Christian belief. We affirm that there

is one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Christ,

His virgin birth, His sinless life, the physical miracles He performed, His atoning death upon the Cross, His

bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory

at His second coming. We profess that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for the salvation of sinful

mankind. We believe the sinner is brought to an awareness of the need for salvation through the convicting

work of the Holy Spirit. We believe that in sanctification by the blood of Christ, one is made holy. We

affirm the present, active ministry of the Holy Spirit who guides the Church and by whose indwelling and

empowerment we are able to live godly lives and render effective service to God and others. We believe

in the oneness and ultimate unity of believers for which our Lord prayed, and that this should be visibly

displayed “that the world may know, see, and believe” God’s glory, the coming of His Son, and the great

love He has for His people (John 17:20–23). We are committed to the sanctity of the marriage bond and the

importance of strong, loving Christian families.

 

Salvation

The Church of God of Prophecy holds the biblical principle of genuine repentance toward God (an

individual’s experience of salvation) as its qualification for Church membership in accordance with the

early church’s practice and God’s own activity in adding to the church daily those who were being saved

(Acts 2:41, 47; 1 Corinthians 12:13). By genuine repentance is meant Godly sorrow for sin, confessing,

turning from, denouncing and forsaking sin, and exercising faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ “who

was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25). “That if thou

shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him

from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the

mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10). Salvation is both instantaneous (new birth,

regeneration) and the all-inclusive work of redemption, beginning with regeneration and culminating with

the glorified body (Hebrews 9:28).
