CATCH THE FIRE WORLD
Our church is a unique expression of the Catch The Fire global ministry that has churches, schools, missions, media and events all around the world. Like all Catch The Fire churches, we're a community of people who are passionate about welcoming the Holy Spirit, and partnering with what He wants to do. You can find out more about Catch The Fire here.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error. It is living and active. It is inspired, infallible, and authoritative (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-2,14; 2 Corinthians 13:17; John 4:24; Acts 5:3-4;).
We believe in God as the Father - Experiencing God as our true Father just like Jesus did will change our lives. Every child of God needs to feel, know, and experience the unconditional, extravagant love of Father God. God wants us, his children to see Him as our father above all else. (John 16:28; John 5:19; John 6:44; Galatians 3:26)
We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love. He is the Messiah prophesied, in the exact representation of God, fully human yet fully God. He died and rose again to reconcile all people to God and to free them from the grip of sin. (Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13; John 19:28-30)
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He gives us spiritual gifts including speaking of tongues, prophesying, and healing among others.
We believe that all mankind is lost in sin because of Adam, the first man. His sin caused the entire world to be enslaved to sin. All have sinned and because of that the penalty is death, separation from God. Jesus paid the penalty of sin so that we could be reconciled to God. One must turn from sin and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus Christ in order for forgiveness of sins and freedom from the curse of sin and death. (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:1-5)
We believe that Salvation is a free gift that comes from God through belief in Jesus’ finished work on the cross and His resurrection from the dead in which he conquered the power of sin and death. (Romans 1:16; Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe in Miracles & Healings - Miracles and healings were the works Jesus and His disciples demonstrated to confirm the good news about God’s Kingdom making its advance against the dominion of the devil. All believers today are empowered to demonstrate these works and thereby advance His Kingdom (Matthew 4:17, 23, 12:28, 28:19-20; John 9:4, 10:37; Mark 16:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:9-10).
We believe that water baptism - is a physical representation of a spiritual reality where the believer identifies with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We baptize believers in water into the name (or nature of) of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as a sign of being consecrated to God, who is Three in One (Romans 6:3-4, 1 Peter 3:21- 22).
We believe in the power of communion - Every month as a Body, we partake of communion, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ as way of remembering the New Covenant we have been born into through the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Blood of Jesus was offered for mankind for the forgiveness of sins and that the broken Body of Jesus was offered for the salvation and healing of mankind. As we partake in this holy ordinance it is important to judge ourselves rightly in light of the forgiveness and healing that is offered through His meal (Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:22-25, Luke 22:14-20, 1 Cor. 11:23-26).
We believe in unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together: we want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us. (John 13:35; 1 Corinthians 1:10; John 17:23)
