WHO WE ARE
Durham West Worship Centre is a bible believing Church, committed to the spiritual growth and betterment of all people. We recognize Christ as the head of the Church Of God, God as the head of Christ, and the Holy Spirit as our Comforter.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We base our beliefs in the "whole Bible rightly divided." We accept the Bible as God's Holy Word, inspired, inerrant, and infallible.
We believe the Bible to be God's written revelation of Himself to mankind and our guide in all matters of faith; therefore, we look to the Bible as our highest authority for doctrine, practice, organization, and discipline
We believe that there is only one God revealed in three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired word of God and is the final authority on absolute truth and holy living.
We believe that Jesus is the Divine Son of God and our personal Saviour from sin.
We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back soon, personally and visibly, to raise the righteous dead, and to give to them and the righteous living, immortality.
We believe in observing the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper.
We believe in following the example of our Lord in Christian Baptism by immersion.
We believe that every believer is given a spiritual gift to edify the body of Christ.
THE CHURCH OF GOD OF PROPHECY
The Church of God of Prophecy is a vibrant, worldwide body of believers, united in worship, working hand-in-hand to share God’s love and a message of hope to the broken-hearted.
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).
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).
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.”
