Our Mission and Doctrinal Statement
Our motto is: TO KNOW CHRIST AND TO MAKE HIM KNOWN.
We declare that Prayer is our Priority, Evangelism is our Passion,
and Discipleship is our Purpose.
Our Mission Statement
The Trichy City AG Church's mission is to glorify God by bringing
salvation, healing and blessing to the city of Trichy, surrounding
villages, the district of Trichy, the state of Tamil Nadu, the nation
of India and all the nations of the world through prayer, preaching
and teaching of the Word of God.
Our Doctrinal Statement
The Holy Scriptures of the Bible are the revealed will of God,
the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. The Tenets of
Faith of the Trichy City Assembly of God Church are the Statement
of Fundamental Truths as drawn from the Scriptures and set forth
by the South India Assemblies of God, and is held to be essential
to a full-gospel ministry, and is intended as a basis of fellowship
among us, that we all speak the same thing doctrinally (1st Corinthians
1:10; Acts 2:42).
16 Fundamental Truths
This "Statement of Fundamental Truths" contains the
16 doctrines of the Assemblies of God. These are non-negotiable
tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches adhere to.
Four of these, Salvation, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine
Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ are considered Cardinal
Doctrines which are essential to the church's core mission of
reaching the world for Christ.
The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This
Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basis
of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak the same thing,
1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42). The phraseology employed in this
Statement is not inspired nor contended for, but the truth set
forth is held to be essential to a full-gospel ministry. No claim
is made that it covers all Biblical truth, only that it covers
our need as to these fundamental doctrines.
We believe that
1. The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and
plan for mankind.
2. There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
3. In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son Jesus was
both human and divine.
4. Though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering
evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
5. Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through
'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to
be our personal Savior). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
6. And practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion
after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation,
and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance
of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
7. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following
Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective
service, just as it did in New Testament times. [1 of 4 cardinal
doctrines of the AG]
8. The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day
of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
9. Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only
a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive
lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually
draw closer to God and become more Christlike.
10. The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost
in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists
of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer
of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the
sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.
11. A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry
Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership
must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him
with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers–the
12. Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today
and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death
on the cross for our sins). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the
13. In The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior
to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment
in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves
and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive
will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. [1 of
4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]
14. In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with
His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule
over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the
salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal
15. A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected
Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal
punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
16. And look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth
that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have
accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following
His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with
