The Foundation of Our Faith

At Lima First Assembly of God, we are committed to proclaiming and living out the teachings of Jesus Christ. As a leading community and society website focusing on faith and beliefs, we aim to provide a rich and comprehensive understanding of our core beliefs.

1. The Bible: Our Ultimate Guide

The primary source of our beliefs is the Holy Bible. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, written by human authors under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It serves as our ultimate guide for faith and life.

1.1 The Old Testament

The Old Testament contains the sacred scriptures of the Hebrew Bible, which reveal God's redemptive plan for humanity from the beginning of time. We acknowledge its significance as a foundation for understanding God's character and purpose.

1.2 The New Testament

The New Testament focuses on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, along with the teachings of the early Christian church. It complements the Old Testament and provides a deeper understanding of God's plan of salvation through Jesus.

2. The Trinity: One God, Three Persons

We firmly believe in the doctrine of the Trinity – one God revealed in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. They are equal in essence, yet different in function.

3. Salvation: God's Gift of Grace

Salvation is at the core of our faith. We believe that through faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, and acceptance of His sacrifice on the cross, we can be reconciled to God. This reconciliation is made possible by His grace alone, not by our own efforts.

3.1 Repentance and Forgiveness

Repentance is an essential step towards salvation. It involves confessing and turning away from our sins, seeking forgiveness from God, and living a transformed life empowered by the Holy Spirit.

3.2 Baptism and Communion

We practice water baptism by immersion and celebrate the Lord's Supper (communion) as symbolic acts of obedience and remembrance. They serve as powerful reminders of our identification with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.

4. The Holy Spirit: Empowerment and Guidance

The Holy Spirit plays a crucial role in our faith and daily lives. We believe in the empowering and indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, who guides, comforts, convicts, and empowers believers to live a godly life and fulfill their God-given purpose.

5. The Church: The Body of Christ

The Church, both local and universal, is the body of Christ. It is a community of believers who gather together to worship, learn, and serve God. We value the importance of fellowship, discipleship, and the mission to reach out to others with God's love.

5.1 Spiritual Gifts and Ministry

Each believer is uniquely gifted by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of building up the body of Christ and engaging in ministry. We encourage the discovery, development, and use of spiritual gifts for effective service in the Church and the world.

5.2 Unity and Diversity

While celebrating our unity in Christ, we also recognize and embrace the diversity within the body of believers. We value inclusivity and strive for a loving and accepting community that reflects God's heart for all people.

6. The Second Coming of Christ

We anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ, where He will judge the living and the dead. This future event reminds us to live with an eternal perspective, eagerly awaiting His return and living faithfully in the present.


At Lima First Assembly of God, our beliefs form the foundation of everything we do. We invite you to explore our community and society website dedicated to faith and beliefs, where you can find resources, teachings, and engage with a vibrant community of believers. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of our core beliefs and inspire you to deepen your relationship with God.
