Statement Of Faith

PREAMBLE

When Missionary Elisha Ingosi Chitayi together with his wife Rasoa Ikonyi were called by GOD into Christian Missionary work in the late 1950’s, they accepted the calling and founded the ministry of MIRACLE REVIVAL FELLOWSHIP PENTECOSTAL CHURCH – with its headquarters at MARIAKANI TOWN in the Republic of KENYA.

Realising that GOD had placed a huge task on them; a task that a mere mortal could not accomplish through flesh and blood, they prayerfully sought the LORD’S direction on how they would raise an army of faithfuls worthy of acceptance into GOD’S own Kingdom amid all the challenges facing the modern day church (and the body of Christ at large).

The faithful GOD answered their prayers giving them specific instructions and revelations on how to execute the divine mandate HE had entrusted them with. The following is a summary of these instructions and divine directions (that have been the basis of the sound doctrine of the ministry of MIRACLE REVIVAL FELLOWSHIP PENTECOSTAL CHURCH ever since its inception):

                                                               

OUR MOTTO

That they all may be one (JOHN 17:21)

OUR VISION

To let the world know the root cause of human suffering and equip people with knowledge that will help them continually overcome Satan's deception in all areas of their lives.

OUR MISSION

Making brethren live holy lives so that they can inherit the kingdom of God – eating the good of the land here on earth and spending eternity with Jesus Christ in heaven.

 

OUR BELIEF IN:

 

1: HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe and accept that the bible (both the old and new testament) is God's infallible written word. It is uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and the Final Authority in all matters of doctrine and conduct (2 Tim 3:16)

 

2: THE FALL OF MAN

We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His Image but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God and under His wrath. Only through God's saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed (Gen 3:1-24)

 

3: SALVATION BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

We Believe and Accept the Fact that Salvation is through the Blood of The Lord Jesus Christ and there is no other way (Eph 1:7 and Col 1:14)

 

4: CHURCH UNITY

We Believe in striving earnestly for the UNITY of the entire body of Christ – according to Christ’s prayer; “THAT THEY ALL MAY BE ONE” John 17:21. For this cause to minimize nonessential doctrinal differences that divide the flock of GOD meanwhile upholding Biblical Standards of Holiness and setting forth the principles and practices laid down in the New Testament concerning the God Ordained order of ministries as set in the church. (1 Cor 12:27-28 and Eph 4:8-13)

 

5: BAPTISM AND SPEAKING IN TONGUES

A)   We Believe in receiving Baptism of The Holy Ghost, Speaking in New Tongues and exercising of spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:4-11 and Rom 12:7-8)

B)   We Believe in the Believer’s Baptism in Water by immersion. We believe that such Baptism is a testimony to the World of an inward work of Grace. This is confession of one’s personal experience of Salvation. We do not consider Baptism which took place prior to the individual’s personal experience of Salvation. (Acts 8:36-38)

6: PRAISE AND WORSHIP

We Believe in Singing with Rejoicing, Shouting, Clapping of hands, the use of Musical Instruments and Dancing in spirit, for God. (1 Peter 1:8, Isaiah 49:13, Psalms 5:11, Psalms 30:10-11, Psalms  47:1, 1 Chron. 16:42, 2 Chron. 5:13-14, Eccl 3:4, 2 Sam 6:14-15 and Rev 7:9-10)

 

7: SELF DENIAL

We Believe in Striving for the Salvation of SOULS more than self-edification; putting Christ first in our lives. (Romans 12:1-21, and Gal 2:20).

 

8: OFFERINGS AND PROSPERITY

We Believe in Preaching and Teaching to Give Offerings. We believe such Offerings bring Prosperity in the Believer’s life. We believe such Prosperity is intended (by God) to be used (among other things) to win the lost around the world in this generation. (Luke 4:18 and Mal. 3:8-12)

 

9: ATTACHMENT TO DENOMINATION(S)

We Believe in UNDENOMINALISM – we are undenominational. (John 17:21, Gal. 3:28)

 

10: HOLINESS AND SUPERNATURAL HEALING

We Believe in Holiness and Supernatural Healings of the Body. (Ex. 14:15, 1Peter 1:16, Heb. 12:16, Eph 5:23, Mark 16:17-18 and Isaiah 50:2) (Without Law)

 

11: SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE

We Believe in Holy Matrimony. We believe in the Sanctity of Marriage. We believe that the scriptural teaching on marriage is that of monogamy. (Mat 5:32, Rom 7:2, 1 Cor 7:10-11, Heb 13:4 and 1 Tim 3:12)

 

12: CHURCH LEADERSHIP

We Believe that in the midst of believers, God raises a prophet from among them. The believers should hear the prophet in all things – whatsoever he shall say unto them. Every soul which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from among the people. (Acts 3:22-23, Acts 7:37, Acts 10:22 and Acts 10:33)
