REVEALED WORD INTERNATIONAL CHAPEL

[RWIC]

OUR VISION

To reveal God's life and the power of salvation to all Nations through the preaching of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ His son.

Meeting Venue:

Park Inn Hotel Silver street Northampton NN1 2TA

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To call ALL Nations back to the everlasting light and to uncover the mystery of God's promise to mankind enveloped in the spoken word of God...

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory [1corinthians2:7]

Statement of beliefs We believe in

1. One God creator of ALL things We believe that there is one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three Manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit [1corinthians 8:6] 2. Jesus Christ the son of God We believe that Jesus is the son of God. We believe that Jesus Christ was true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered, died, descended to the dead and on the third day He rose from the dead for our total salvation. He is coming back to take the church. We believe that His blood atones for our sins and iniquity. 3. The Holy Spirit We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the third person of God, sent to empower the church and fulfil God's purpose on earth, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, but the evidence of the Holy Spirit's

indwelling presence is a changed life. [Acts 1:8, 2:2-4]

4. The Bible We believe that the scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired word of God without error and in the original writings, and complete revelation. We believe that the Bible is the true infallible word of God, which cleanses our souls. [2 Timothy 3:16,17]

5. Man's need for salvation We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. Therefore, every professing believer must have a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, for apart from Him we can do nothing. We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope. We believe in the rapture, that the dead in Christ will rise first, and those who are alive and

remain shall be caught up to meet Jesus in the air. [ 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17] 6. Life after death We believe that after death, eternal life begins, in heaven or hell, based on one's decision to live according to God's word or rebel against God. We believe that there will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgement and everlasting conscious judgement. 7. The Church of Christ

exhorting, and admonishing believers in the ways of God.

We believe that it is God's will to heal and deliver His people today as He did in the days of the first Apostles and it is by the stripes of Jesus that we are healed, delivered and made whole. Further, we also believe that as New Testament believers, we have authority over sickness, disease, demons, curses, and every circumstance in life, in the name of Jesus. [Ephesians 4:7, 11-16; 1Corinthians 12:4-7] 9. Tithes and offerings

We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been born again by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ. 8. Gifts of the Holy Spirit We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the uniqueness of God's given abilities in each person and that they are for edification and completeness of the body of Christ. We accomplish this destiny by instructing, teaching,

We believe that tithing and bringing offerings into the local Church is a major covenantal obligation that we have toward God as His partners, for the support of all the ministries of the Church, the poor, homeless, the widows, and otherwise unfortunate. [Malachi 3:10]

Our dream

To teach, equip believers and to unleash them into their God given gifts lying within them as to expand the Kingdom of God To raise a people that are passionate about reaching the lost for Christ, discipling them to attain to maturity and then releasing them into their callings. To reach the hurting, discontented, distressed, misunderstood, frustrated and confused with a message of hope To reach out to Nations with the gospel, irrespective of racial, cultural and religious beliefs and bring them to unity for the expansion of the Kingdom.

The Church values

All are valuable in the sight of God - We believe that all men are valuable in the sight of God and that no individual is any more important than another. Servant Leadership and Ministry ­ We believe that the motivation for all ministries within the local Church should be based on the principle of servant hood. Empowering environment ­ We believe in empowering individuals to realise and fully walk in their giftings and callings. Stewardship and ownership ­ We believe that as born-again believers we are joint heirs with Jesus and therefore we will have to give an account concerning how we administer what God has entrusted to us, whether it is people, finance, relationships or churches.
