What We Believe
LIFE ABUNDANT PENTECOSTAL CHURCH (LAPC) believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God. LAPC has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.
We believe that the Bible (the Old and New Testaments excluding the Apocrypha), is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice
We believe in the unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal, Self-Existent “I AM”, Who has also revealed Himself as One being co-existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Substitutionary Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection, Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers
We believe in the fall of human being, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression
We believe in salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His Blood we have Redemption
This experience is also known as the new birth and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptized by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an enduement of the believer with power for service and witnessing, and the essential, biblical evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the Church today
We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God
We believe that deliverance from sickness, by Divine Healing is provided for in the Atonement
We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and have received water baptism should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people, the everlasting, conscious and quality life with God for all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the eternal separation from God, and conscious painful life for all whose names are not written in the Book of Life
