Receive Christ (A Call To Salvation)
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. Amen.

Our Mission Statement:
As received by the General Overseer (G.O.) Pastor E.A. Adeboye, and communicated to the leaders, our vision and mission statement shall read:
- To make Heaven
- To take as many as possible with us
- To have a member of RCCG in every family of all nations
- To accomplish No 1 above, holiness will be our lifestyle
- To accomplish No 2 & 3 above, we will plant churches within five minutes walking distance in every city and town of developing countries and within five minutes driving distance in every city and town of developed countries.
We will pursue these objectives until every nation in the world is reached for JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.1. THE BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is “God’s Word”. The truths revealed in it did not have their origin with men, but with God. The Holy Spirit inspired the human authors of the Bible. We therefore believe that the bible is without error, completely true, relevant and an up-to-date book. It’s central theme and purpose is the salvation of man. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Psalm 12:6
Matthew 24:35, Psalm 119:160 2. TRINITY: We believe in the Divine Trinity. One Triune God exists in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – eternal in being, identical in nature, equal in power and glory and having the same attributes and perfections. Matthew 3:16-17
2 Corinthians 13:14,Hebrews 9:14, 1 John 5:7 3. JESUS CHRIST: We beleive in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, teachings, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and coming return to this earth in power and glory to rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords with His saints forever. Matthew 17:15-17, John 1:1-14
Acts 2:32-33, Hebrews 4:14-15 Revelation 1:13:16. 4. THE FALL OF MAN: That Man was created in the image of God before whom he walked in innocence, holiness and purity, but by voluntary disobedience and transgression, he fell to the depths of sin. The consequence of this is that all mankind became sinners by nature having been born after the fallen image of Adam. In his fallen state man is incapable of pleasing God or having any relationship with Him. Every man is totally inclined to evil, guilt and without excuse, deserving the condemnation and judgment of a just and Holy God. Genesis 1:26-31
Genesis 2:7,Psalm 139:14, Col. 1:16,
Mark 1:15 5.SALVATION: Man in his fallen state cannot approach God or save himself and therefore needs a savior. Jesus Christ came to save us from our sins. Himself without sin, He took our sins upon Him, died in our place, and rose again from the dead, that we might be forgiven and receive eternal life. The word salvation in the Greek means “soteria” which is translated “saving” or “deliverance” and preservation from destruction and judgment. To appropriate salvation, we must acknowledge our sins and repent from them; we must believe that Christ died for us, and rose again; we must receive the risen Christ as our personal Savior, and we must publicly confess Him as our Lord. Hebrews 9:29, Romans 3:10, 23
Acts 3:19, Romans 10:8-13, Jude 3:24 6.SANTIFICATION:The scripture teaches that “sanctified” is what the believer is [not a process, but a state, which the believer has already entered into once and for all. Acts 20:32; Romans 15:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 10:10-14; Ephesians 5:25-26; 1 Peter 1:2; Acts 26:18], and “perfect” is what he is expected to be. Perfection is a spiritual growth for those who have been sanctified and consecrated. Therefore it is the total yielding of one’s life to the Holy Spirit, living the crucified life; being an overcomer; and being conformed to the image of Christ Himself. Perfection and true holiness are impossible without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. All attempts at achieving perfection without the Holy Spirit generally results in frustration and failure, inasmuch as “flesh cannot crucify flesh.” 7. BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: In the Baptism of the Holy Ghost for all believers who are living sanctified lives and that it is evidenced by the speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterances. The unknown tongue is a prayer language given to the believer, understood by God but unknown to man. It enables the Christian to build up his own spiritual life by direct and continual communion with God, and is the gateway into a life in which both the gifts and fruits of the Holy Ghost should be manifested. In the New Testament church, this experience was considered normal for all believers. Joel 2:28, Luke 3:16
Acts 2:38-39, Acts 19:2, Mark 16:17 8. DIVINE HEALING: We believe that Redemption not only dealt with sin but also its consequences, which includes sickness and diseases. Christ died on the cross; bore not only our sins, but also our sicknesses. Healing for our bodies from God comes to us through appropriation of the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary by faith in the word of God and manifestation of the gift of healing. Not only believers receive healing for our bodies, but also we may minister healing and deliverance to others in the name of Jesus. This can be accomplished by laying on of hands, praying for others in absentia and by getting bible believing church elders to anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. Mark 16:17-18 9. RAPTURE: The second coming of Jesus and the Rapture of the church. 1 John 3:1-3
Luke 21:31-35 10. THE GREAT TRIBULATION: This is a seven-year span of future world history of the reign of antichrist following immediately after the rapture: It will be the darkest time the world has ever known. It is “the day of vengeance of our Lord.” Man’s cup of iniquity is filled to overflowing, and God brings judgment upon the earth for man’s rejection of His son. During this period, the people of Israel will turn to Christ, when they will be reconciled to God through Him whom they rejected and whom they asked Pilate to crucify. Daniel 9:24-27, Revelation 19
1 Thessalonians 1:10 Revelation 3:10
THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST: The millennial age is period of one thousand years, in which the purpose of God is fully realized on the earth. This period will come after the seven years reign of antichrist. After the Lord Jesus Christ has descended from heaven to earth and destroyed his enemies at the battle of Armageddon, He will set up His holy government which is going to be worldwide. It will be a time of peace, joy, holiness, glory, comfort, justice, full knowledge, the removal of curse and sickness. Zechariah 14:16-17, Revelation 20:1-15
THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST: The judgment seat of Christ is the judgment of believers. It is not a judgment of condemnation but a judgment of reward where believers will be rewarded according to our faithfulness in our service to God, quality of our Christian walk and the use of our God-given gifts and talents. Romans 14:10, II Corinthians 5: 10, I Peter 4: 17
The Great White Throne Judgment as the final judgment when all the wicked will stand before God.
THE ETERNAL HEAVEN: After the dissolution of the present (atmospheric) heaven and earth at the end of the one thousand years (the millennium), God will create a new heaven and a new earth better than anything this world has ever known. The new earth will be the Christian heaven. It is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers.
Revelation 21:1-5, John 14:1-3, Revelation 22:1-5
2 Peter 3:10
ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE (HELL): We believe that the lake of fire (commonly called hell) is the final abode of Satan and those sinners who reject Jesus as their Lord and savior. Hell is the place of eternal torment for the devil, his angels and all those who reject Christ as the savior.Revelations 19: 7
Luke 16:19-31, Revelations 20:10,15
Matthew 25:33-34 11. WATER BAPTISM: We believe in Water baptism by immersion as Jesus commanded. And by this act, we make ourselves one with Christ in His burial and in His resurrection; we are separated from the old life of sin and defeat; we come out of the water to lead a new life of righteousness and victory, made possible by God’s power in us.
Mark 16:16, Matt 28:19-20, Acts 2:38-41
Acts 8:37-39, Romans 6:4 12. RESTITUTION: Restitution is the act of restoring anything to it’s rightful owner; act of giving an equivalent for loss or damage. Restitution makes a person pay back just debts, restore stolen or misappropriated articles, uncover his crimes and confess his lies. This is to be done whether the person injured knew it or not – God knows. Genesis 20:1-18, Genesis 32:9-32
Luke 19:8-10, Philemon 7:21, Acts 24:16
Note: Restitution that would implicate others or bring injury or harm to others, needs care and God’s wisdom.
In such cases, it is necessary to seek counseling from a faithful, experienced, competent, matured Christian teacher and preacher (who, of course, believes and teaches “the whole counsel of God”). 13. THE LORDS SUPER: The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the fruit of the vine is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a memorial of His suffering, death and a prophecy of His second coming. Jesus Christ commanded the church to do it in His remembrance. The bible record also shows the early church took this commandment seriously. Luke 22: 14-19, Acts 2: 42, 46, 2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 11:26
