Our Core Values
VALUES CENTRAL TO THE LIFE, MISSION AND VISION OF PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES OF NEPAL
THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
The good news of the bible the gospel can be summarized in four words:
CREATION… we were created to have a relationship with God…
FALL… but we destroyed that relationship when we rebelled against him by going our own way.
REDEMPTION… Jesus Christ, god’s son, lived a sinless life on earth. He paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute, and rose bodily from the dead.
RESTORATION… faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to restore our relationship with God.
Biblical authority – we study, teach, and apply the bible as our final authority.
Gospel centrality – we proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and apply it to all areas of our lives.
Trinitarian worship – we worship the triune god and devote ourselves to prayer.
Biblical community – we grow in Christ in the context of healthy bible-based community.
Multiplication mindset – we multiply by developing leaders, launching small groups,
Fellowship and ministry- we prioritize planting and growing local churches as in (Acts 9:31 and Ephesians 3:14-19, verses) that believers may be grown, nurtured and equipped for ministry.
We prioritize joyous worship- honoring the father, son and holy spirit as we extol the life and love of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 11:36-12:1-2verses)
We hold to the creeds– asserting Jesus as god’s virgin-born son–his sinless life, atoning death and literal resurrection providing salvation (Act 4:12verses).
We focus a Christ-honoring-grace-based preaching and teaching ministry rooted in the authority of God’s eternal word, the holy bible (2 Timothy 3:16verses).
CHURCH AND BIBLICAL BALANCE
We prioritize a personal and church lifestyle of vital joy and hope as Christ and his kingdom are described in (john 10:10, romans 14:17 and 15:13verses)
We promote creative personal and church ministry that spreads the gospel meets human need and multiplies life-begetting ministries (phil. 1:9-11verses).
