ELIJAH GATE CHRISTIAN CENTER
Here you are family. So, welcome home. We are a family-oriented fellowship of believers who are taking God at His word in all His power and life changing truth. We are learning to love one another as He loved us, to work together to see the fulfilment of the Great Commission, to serve our community, nation, and world to the glory of Jesus Christ and God the Father, through the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Do you desire a life in which you KNOW the Lord is working? Do you wait expectantly for God to change your life, the lives of your family and friends and the nation even the world? Then come worship with us, learn with us, stand in prayer with us, hear from the Lord with us and watch as the Lord heals, delivers, saves, and changes nations! You are an important part of God's plan. Come find His purpose for you!
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent - one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."
We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister supernaturally. The baptism in the Holy Spirit according to the book of Acts is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses. The initial evidence of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy - sin, lies, sickness and torment.
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, disciple the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
In the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride - His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
