The Church Identity and Presence
The Church of God of Prophecy has its roots in the Holiness/Pentecostal tradition and has felt a special burden to call attention to the principle of unity in the body of Christ, while faithfully proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ before a watching world.

The whole Church, as pictured in the New Testament, is the body of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23) with members in particular (1 Cor. 12:27). It is both local (1 Cor. 1:2) and universal (Matt. 16:18), at one and the same time completely the body of Christ in its locale, and the whole body of Christ in its world-wide existence. The body of Christ as expressed in and through the Church of God of Prophecy has its purpose and mission to continue the saving work of Jesus Christ in the world and to make ready a people prepared for His name (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 15:14).

Church of God of Prophecy
Its method of achieving this goal is through the effective proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed and the
growth and edification of its members into Christ and into common life through their God-given ministry to one another (1Cor.
14:12, 19, 26).
The Church of God of Prophecy believes that throughout its history, God has developed within it, significant, corporate strengths that
are important to the work and proper functioning of the visible church as an expression of the kingdom of God. Among these are
internationalization, racial and cultural harmony in diversity, universality and wholeness (completeness and presence), the principle
of biblical unity, commitment to the Bible as the inerrant, infallible Word of God, conscious acknowledgment of the Holy Spirit’s
active presence and ruler ship in the Church as at Pentecost, and the historic, restorational impulse towards a more biblical, New
Testament ecclesiology.

Our Covenant Relationship

“We have joined ourselves together in Christ as a fellowship of believers by covenanting to accept the Bible as the Word of God,
promising to believe and practice its teachings rightly divided with the New Testament as our rule of faith and practice, government,
and discipline , and agreeing to walk in the light to the best of our knowledge and ability.”
