We are a Christian Church whose raison d’être is the diffusion of the Word of God (The Bible). We see the Bible as a LIVE book, from whose pages God speaks to us in order to lead us to repentance and reconciliation through JESUS CHRIST. We believe that by repenting and accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, He transforms our lives, giving us a new life filled with joy, peace and love, and in the future gives us Eternal Life.
The world can see the difference for the love of Christ that is manifested in Christians. It is different from that observed in those who live without Christ. As Church, we are called to be light and salt of the earth, reflecting the testimony of Christ. We are committed to proclaim the gospel through united effort of all ministries sharing their talents, abilities, and resources.
From the beginning, the Church of God of Prophecy was based on the belief that the Bible is the word of God rightly divided; Old and New Testament, our “only” rule of faith, government, and discipline. We “accept” the Bible as the Word of God, inspired. Therefore, we believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Our mission — To be examples of Jesus Christ’s love for the lost, his compassion for the wounded and needy and his attitude of service to his neighbor.
Our vision is to foster a Church that crosses ethnic barriers in its evangelistic efforts, where children and young people, adults and elders collaborate together in the advancement of the glorious Gospel.
