Nechells Outreach Centre is part of the Church of God of Prophecy (COGOP), a Pentecostal church made up of bible-believing Christians who are called by God to bring to mankind hope and life in Jesus Christ through the gospel message. COGOP has churches and missions in over 130 countries.
We look to the Bible as our highest authority for principles governing doctrine, practice, organisation, and discipline. In particular, we believe:
- that there is one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in the physical miracles He performed, in His atoning death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory at His second coming.
- that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for the salvation of sinful man.
- that sanctification by the blood of Jesus Christ is necessary for personal holiness.
- in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling we are able to live godly lives and have power for service.
- in the ultimate unity of believers as prayed for by our Lord Jesus Christ in John 17.
- in the sanctity of human life and are committed to the sanctity of the marriage bond, and the importance of strong, loving Christian families.
