Our Purpose & Mission
OUR FAITH STATEMENT
WHAT WE BELIEVE
That the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative written Word of God.
In the eternal existence of one true God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In the Saviour of people, the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, very God and very man.
In the creation, test and fall of man, as recorded in Genesis, and in man’s total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness.
That forgiveness of sin and eternal life is freely offered to all by our Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation of sinners is by grace through faith alone, in the perfect all sufficient work of Christ, who died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again bodily the third day for our justification.
In water baptism of believers by immersion in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In the baptism with the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation with the scriptural evidence, namely, speaking in tongues.
In the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 and 27-31, Ephesians 4:11-12, 1 Peter 4:9-11 and elsewhere in the Bible.
In the Lord’s Supper, as a memorial for believers.
In divine healing as practiced throughout the Bible.
In the eternal life of the believer and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever.
In the Spirit-filled life as the Holy Spirit works in believers to enable them to live sanctified and separate from the world, and seeks to produce His fruit in them as their minds are renewed and they are conformed to the image of Christ.
In the bodily ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ to heaven, His enthronement at the right hand of God and His personal, visible and imminent return for His church.
In the sanctity of marriage, as a lifelong exclusive commitment between one man and one woman.
Sonrise Full Gospel Church is affiliated with the ACOP, a fellowship of about 120 churches in Canada and related to churches in many nations. We are an autonomous church that partners with ACOP, as such we are led by a Pastor and Elders. Our Pastor is accountable to our Board of Directors.
