The Redeemed Christian Church of God, United Kingdom
Our Core Beliefs / Statement of Faith
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) affirms its belief in the Holy Bible as the infallible and authoritative word of God given to guide all men and women to salvation.
Our doctrines and liturgy, therefore, derive from the Holy Bible. As a Christian organisation, all we do is underpinned by prayer, even as we seek spiritual intervention and guidance for every decision taken in furtherance of our objectives.
We are open to the general public in the quest to reach our world and communities with the Christian message of salvation informed by God’s unconditional love for all persons.
Wherever we operate, our steadfast commitment is towards upholding our communities, beginning with the family unit which forms the core of society. In this regard, we ensure that every precaution is taken to care for, nurture and protect children in our care in order to forestall any emotional, physical, or spiritual abuse. Furthermore, we encourage families to stay together in order to build a healthy society. Hence, we provide pastoral care and guidance to our members with the objectives of promoting Christ-likeness and the upholding of family life.
As a church, the RCCG therefore remains firmly committed to the promotion of inclusion within our society and the guarantee of spiritual care to our members, whether adults or children. These values are what we have imbibed and continue to advance in our entire vocational activities and interface with secular society.
We do not condone, encourage or engage in any form of physical, emotional and psychological abuse. We believe that children are the heritage of the Lord (Psalm 127:3) and that if one trains up a child in the way he/she should go, when they are old, they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). We, however, acknowledge that ultimately, children are the primary responsibility of their parents; therefore, parents within the RCCG are encouraged to judiciously exercise discretion in teaching their children how to worship God.
Our Statement of Faith in the RCCG is below.
Our Statement of Faith
In the RCCG, we affirm our belief in:
- God the Father
Creator of heaven and earth, who made man in His own image and likeness.
- The Holy Trinity
The three persons of the Godhead: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit – Three-in-One.
- The Virgin Birth
Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
- The Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Jesus was crucified and died for the sins of mankind on the Cross at Calvary, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day. He ascended into heaven and is forever seated at the right hand of God the Father.
- The Holy Spirit
The Comforter and Teacher of all things, who dwells within us, uniting us to Jesus Christ.
- The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
This is freely available to all who believe in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, and is manifested by the gift of speaking in unknown tongues.
A gift from God through grace and faith in Jesus Christ; that all who believe in Him may be saved by turning from sin to repentance, trusting in His death and resurrection and are born again by the Holy Spirit.
- The Blood of Jesus Christ
It was shed for us on the Cross at Calvary, cleanses us from all sin and grants us access into the presence of God.
- The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
Jesus will come again to earth in glory and the dead in Christ will rise and those who are alive in Christ will be translated into the presence of God for eternity.
