WHAT WE BELIEVE
Christ Memorial Temple is a church whose purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to serve people by creating a place of worship where the Presence and Power of God is manifest in every service. We are not a denomination. We are Pentecostal because we identify with the Day of Pentecost experience as recorded in Acts 2. We adhere without waver to Apostolic Doctrine. We believe in worship without inhibition and that the Power of God and Gifts of the Spirit are not only relevant for this day, but prevalent in every service.
We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38.
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11
We believe Godly living must characterize the life of every child of the Lord, and we must live according to the pattern and example given in the Word of God. "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world." (Titus 2:11-12) "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14)
