Who are we?
First and foremost, the Church of God is a determinedly a Christian church. It is built upon the person of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
The Church of God is founded upon the principles of Protestantism, although it is not a traditional follower of any specific leader of the Protestant Reformation.
Evangelical is the term used to describe those who affirm the primary doctrines of faith and service revealed in the Scriptures.
Those who are members of the Church of God experience a Spiritual outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This outpouring is revealed in the Book of Acts and shows us the experience of the early Christians on the Day of Pentecost. God is love! Thus we endeavor to walk in the Spirit of Love and be led by the Spirit of God.
The charisma (Greek) or gifts of the Spirit appeared early in the life and ministry of the Church. The gifts can be divided into three categories: the gifts of revelation, the gifts of power and the gifts of inspiration.
From its inception the Church of God has focused on bringing people to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ: The Great Commission. Evangelism has been in the forefront of all of the church's activities. The Church of God has maintained an aggressive effort to take the message of Christ throughout the world through Biblical means and methods.
