Beliefs

(Summary)

We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to every aspect of our lives. We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy, full of grace and truth. The Lord Jesus Christ is both God and human and is the only one who can restore us to God. Each time we share communion we remember Jesus lived a sinless life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to demonstrate His victory and empower His followers.

We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. In order to receive forgiveness we must acknowledge and repent of our sins, believe in God’s resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. God wants to transform us so that we can experience the fullness of eternal life now, share that life with others, and share eternity with Him forever. In order to live the holy, fruitful, and power-filled lives God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water, filled The Holy Spirit, and fully devoted to walk in obedience to God’s Word.

We believe God has individually equipped us and collectively gathered us as His living body so that we can experience the fullness of Jesus Christ as The Church and demonstrate the fullness of Jesus Christ to the world. It is, therefore, our individual and collective responsibility to preach the Gospel, make disciples, and work for the good of the communities to which we have been sent.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth.

Vision

LifeGate Church operates under the conviction that God placed us where we are on purpose to accomplish the following mission:

Open the way to true life in the communities of our region and our world.

To get this done, we are devoted to:

  • Pray Faithfully
  • Speak Boldly
  • Serve Humbly
  • Multiply Intentionally

You’re invited to partner with us on this journey. Also, since being The Church extends beyond church services we are committed to LifeGroups where people grow and share life together in other contexts. If you are interested in being connected with a LifeGroup, please contact the church staff.

Beliefs

LIFEGATE Church is part of a global fellowship of churches known as the Assemblies of God. The following represents a more detailed description of the fundamental truths of the Assemblies of God. Looking for what we believe in a much more concise read? Click Here

WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for humankind.

WE BELIEVE...There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

WE BELIEVE...In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son Jesus was both human and divine.

WE BELIEVE...though originally good, humankind willingly fell to sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

WE BELIEVE...Every person can have restored fellowship with God through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our Lord & Savior).

WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

WE BELIEVE...the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.

WE BELIEVE... The initial physical evidence of the baptism in The Holy Spirit is ‘speaking in tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

WE BELIEVE...Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.

WE BELIEVE...The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE...A divinely called and Scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.

WE BELIEVE...Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).

WE BELIEVE...in The Blessed Hope—when Jesus raptures His Church prior to His return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

WE BELIEVE...in the millennial reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

WE BELIEVE...A final judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect new heavens and a new earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
