The following are the core beliefs of Fuel Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
His miraculous virgin birth, His death on the cross (standing in our place) taking all the sins of the world upon Himself, and repairing the gap between God and man through His awesome blood. We believe in His supernatural and powerful resurrection from the dead, His present day healing ministry to bind up the broken-hearted and heal wounds, and in His soon, coming return for His people.
The evident work and power of the Holy Spirit in our lives in for today. For holy living and to be His witness, spokesperson, mouthpiece, example, and ambassadors in growing the Kingdom of God.
The Bible is active and living. The only infallible, authoritative Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is given to us for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.
There is only one way we can be saved. It is a gift, that is by faith and confession in Jesus Christ and through no other name (John 3:16; John 10:9-10; Romans 6:23).
There is a responsibility of repentance. After confession comes repentance, making a 180 degree turn from and repenting of our old life of sin and turning to a life wholly submitted to Jesus Christ, pursuing righteousness, faith, love and peace. (II Timothy 2:22)
We believe that a Christian ought to display an extravagant affection for Jesus Christ and be enthusiastically involved in His mission, “that none should perish.” We believe God’s mandate for Christians is summed up in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15-17. He commands us to “go,” whether to our schools, work places, homes, cities, states, or other nations. It is crucial that we give everyone an opportunity to know Jesus. We are called to be “world changers,” those who spread the Good News of Jesus to the ends of the earth (Matthew 24:14).
A believer must lead through Servant Leadership. Servant Leadership involves serving with selflessness and sacrifice, traits found in Jesus. "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45). Servant Leaders serve with an unselfish concern for others, even at the expense and sacrifice of one's own interests.
A follower of Jesus should walk in Godly authority. Influence without control. Godly influence is the by-product of a life lived in the presence of God. This type of life embraces godly standards, is motivated by godly ideals, demonstrates godly practices, and is empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is authority that is selfless and under the constraints of the Holy Spirit following the foot steps of Jesus.
We must promote relationships of integrity and unity among the Body of Christ. It is imperative to create an environment that fosters communication, unity, and growth. As Fuel International nurtures cross-cultural relationships and partnerships with national workers, ministers must remain sensitive to cross-cultural values and beliefs, and gain trust among those who will become friends and partners in the Faith.
To accomplish the "task" of the Great Commission, all vision, plans, strategies, goals, and activities must be immersed in committed prayer. It was the prayer life that Jesus lived and modeled that caused his disciples to ask him, “Lord teach us to pray.” All the techniques and strategies for organizational growth and partnerships, apart from prayer, will be in vain. Through prayer the believer is connected to God and it is His enablement that allows us to do the work of the ministry. Prayer must be an attitude of the heart and a state of being.
