What We Believe

 

Object 

The object of this church shall be to bind together followers of Jesus Christ for the purpose of sharing in the worship of God and in making His will dominant in the lives of men, individually and collectively, especially as that will is set forth in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

Mission Statement         

 

The mission of The Rugby Deliverance Tabernacle is:
 
To preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the world;
 
To help people experience God’s saving and sanctifying grace;
 
To follow the teachings of God’s word;
 
To encourage Christians and prepare them for service.
 
To do this for the glory of God, under the Lordship of Christ, through the leadership of the Holy Spirit, and by prayer and fasting.
 
 

Statement of Faith 

We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love; and in Jesus Christ, his Son, our Lord and Saviour, who for us and our salvation lived and died and rose again and liveth evermore; and in the Holy Spirit, who takes the things of Christ and reveals them to us, renewing, comforting and inspiring the souls of men.
 
We are united in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures, and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church of Christ to proclaim the gospel to all mankind, exalting the worship of the one true God and laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace, and the realization of human brotherhood. Depending, as did our fathers, upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the kingdom of God; and we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness and the life everlasting.
