Our Beliefs

CCFC is chartered with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel.

Foursquare is a biblical term representing balance and forthrightness (it is used of the tabernacle in the Book of Exodus, of the Temple of the Lord in Ezekiel 40:47, and of Heaven, as described in the Book of the Revelation) See   www.charlescountyfoursquare.org

The Foursquare Church is "Dedicated to Interdenominational, worldwide evangelism..." and its central focus is, and has always been lifting up Jesus Christ:

As Savior -- Jesus is the only hope for humanity. He has bridged the chasm between God and us and offers us salvation that includes eternal life in heaven and abundant life now.

As Healer -- Jesus heals today as He did in the past, broken hearts, broken lives, and our physical bodies as well.

As Baptizer with the Holy Spirit -- Jesus provides power to live a victorious life. God's children can overcome sin, sickness, disease, poverty, and every other attack of the enemy.

As Coming King -- Jesus will return to reign on the earth one day soon. Until that time He is teaching His church to "reign in life" in His place.

What We Believe

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES --  We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).

THE ETERNAL GODHEAD --  We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

THE FALL OF MAN  --  We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection (Romans 5:12).

THE PLAN OF SALVATION  --  We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).

SALVATION THROUGH GRACE  --  We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).

REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE  --  We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (I John 1:9).

THE NEW BIRTH --  We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).

DAILY CHRISTIAN LIVING  --  We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER  --  We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice of the vine (I Corinthians 11:24, 25).

BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT  --  We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming into our hearts is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).

THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE  --  We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT  --  We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the christian; and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (I Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).

MODERATION  --  We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).

DIVINE HEALING  --  We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick when we pray in faith believing (James 5:14-16).

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST  --  We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is real and imminent (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17).

CHURCH RELATIONSHIP  --  We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).

CIVIL GOVERNMENT  --  We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).

THE FINAL JUDGMENT --  We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgment seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).

HEAVEN  --  We believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home for born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).

HELL --  We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as their Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).

EVANGELISM  --  We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the church (James 5:20).

TITHES AND OFFERINGS --  We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2, Corinthians 9:7).
