What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Fervent Prayer based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines. In the triune God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: Jesus Christ is true God and true man.   All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. It is the will of God that every believer be filled with the Holy Spirit, water baptism and observance of the Lord’s Supper.
In the personal, visible, and imminent return of Christ.  

God

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Revelation

Healing is provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every believer.  God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Salvation

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and need salvation.  Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The church consists of all those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal savior.  The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ressurection

 In the bodily resurrection of the just & the unjust, Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
