Vision & Mission
Driven by the Greatest Commandment, we are dedicated to the Great Commission, thus developing a Glorious Church – Matthew 22: 37-40; Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 4:11-13.
FNT is a church whose heart and arms are opened to the lost and dying people of the world. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are calling the sinners, the broken-hearted, the sick, and the bound to freedom and new life by the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Luke 4:18). We endeavor to see FNT as a perfect blend of races and cultures, worshipping and serving our Lord in Pentecostal power and life.
We do not exist to conform to the religious mood of our culture, to be socially acceptable, to occupy property, or to perform mere religious duties. We are a committed assembly who fears the Lord. Only as we take God seriously, will we take our marriages, our families and our spirituality seriously.
Our mission is to honor and glorify God by the growth of our members through fellowship, discipleship, worship, ministry, and evangelism (Acts 2: 42-47) .
God’s purpose for the Church is two-fold: the work “in” the Church and the work “of” the Church.
Work IN the Church
The work “in” the church is to equip the members of FNT for the work of the ministry ‘Work of the Church’ (Ephesians 3:9; 4: 10-13) through worship, the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, missions, and fellowship among believers. It is to strengthen fellow believers and their relationship with God.
The Church is not the mission field. The Church is not the normal place for sinners to be saved. The work in the Church involves fellowship among believers and spiritual growth; it is the place where we are equipped to do the work of the ministry.
Work OF the Church
The work “of” the church is to equip the members of FNT to be a light in this world through missions, local outreaches, and encouragement to live their daily lives among the lost as an example of the grace of God.
We are committed to live as a united body so that “as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). We believe that through this united body, God will manifest His presence to our world. We will take the gospel of Jesus Christ into all the world, that men may be reconciled to God. We dare to go into all the world to make disciples of all men in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God – 2 Tim. 3:15-17;1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and Godthe Holy Ghost – Dt. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22.
We believe In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years – Zech. 18:5; Matt 24:27-30; Rev 19:11-14, 20:1-6; Matt 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35;Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22; 10:38; Phil 2:9-11.
We believe In the blessed hope. The Pre-tribulation Rapture of the Church – 1 Thess 4:16-17; Romans8:23; Titus 2: 13; 1Cor. 15:51
Cleansing from Sin
We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the blood of Jesus-John 3:3; Rom. 10:13; Acts 2:38; Titus 2:11; 3: 5-7
The New Birth
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation – Romans 12:2; 1 John 3:9; Titus 3:5; John 3:3, 5, 7.
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer – Isa 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it.
We believe In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life – Romans 6:1-11; 8:1-2,13; Galatians 2:20; 1 Peter 1:5.
We believe In the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life the other to everlasting damnation – Acts 24:15; Daniel 12:2; Rev. 20:11-15; 21:8; 1 Cor 15:51-52
We believe that marriage that honors God and is in accordance to His word is only between one man and one woman – Gen 1:27-28; Gen 2:18,21-24
