Wondering why we exist?

Word of Life Church London is here to fulfil God's three-fold desire.

 

Igreja Verbo da Vida 02

 

God wants all people to be saved ...

When Jesus looks at people, He doesn't just see flesh and blood. He doesn't see black faces, white faces, red faces, yellow faces. He sees people who are potential champions. He sees people who are scattered without direction in their life. And yet, He loves them so much that the door of salvation was opened to every person.

Thank God, Jesus has opened the door of salvation that no one can shut—unless the person himself refuses to walk through that open door by not receiving Jesus Christ as his Saviour. Whosoever will may come through this door of salvation! Each individual person must choose for himself whether he will enter into the blessings and benefits that salvation provides for him.

 

And to come to the knowledge of the truth ...

The truth is important to God. And because it is important to God, it should be important to us. When we talk about the truth, what are we talking about? Well, we are talking about the truths of God and not the facts of man.

Now, here's what I mean. A man I know was tricked and betrayed. When the problem was uncovered, he wanted to know all the details of the situation. He searched and talked and acted like an amateur detective for several months. He just had to know all of the details of his past problem.

When he was asked why he had to find out all the ugly details, he responded by using a scripture verse. He said, "I can't forgive until I find out all the facts. I have to know the truth. After all, Jesus said 'you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.'"

 

So you may have life, and have it to the full.

It is not God’s will that you put up with anything that robs you of life to the full. He is a good God; He wants you to enjoy your life! He wants you to be free to become the person that He created you to be.

He doesn’t want you crippled in your emotions, tormented in your mind, or sick in your body. He doesn’t want you bound by insecurity, fear, or sin. He wants you to be free to fulfill the assignment that He has for you to complete and live the abundant life.

 

Word of Life Church operates under the charity of World Harvest Bible Church Salford Quays, Manchester. WHBC is a company limited by guarantee No. 06945131 and a registered charity No. 1129711.

THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).

 

THE GODHEAD

Our God is One, but manifested in three Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being coequal (Deut. 6:4; Phil. 2:6). God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 14:16; John 15:26).

 

MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. The Bible says "...all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God," and "...There is none righteous, no, not one" (Rom. 3:10; 3:23). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:14; 1 John 3:8).

Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Eph. 2:8–10).

 

ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH

Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; John 3:3–5; 1 John 5:12).

 

WATER BAPTISM

Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36–39).

The following recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted; to wit: "On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority, I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen."

 

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1–7; Acts 2:1–4).

 

SANCTIFICATION

The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (Heb. 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12–14; 1 Cor. 1:30).

 

DIVINE HEALING

Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (James 5:14,15; Mark 16:18; Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).

 

RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD

The angels said to Jesus' disciples, "...This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." His coming is imminent. When He comes, "...The dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air..." (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:16,17).

Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Rev. 5:10; 20:6).

 

HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION

The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The lake of fire is literal. The terms "eternal" and "everlasting," used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the Presence of God (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20).
