What we believe
Who we are
Evangelie Gemeente De Deur is part of the Christian Fellowship Ministries (CFM). Worldwide there are now about 3,100 churches in more than 100 countries. In the Netherlands our churches are called "Evangelie Gemeente De Deur" As a church and fellowship we have a vision aimed at reaching people with the gospel, both nationally and internationally. The preaching is aimed at bringing people into contact with God. People come to De Deur Gospel Church because they have an expectation from God and to receive direction and guidance by listening to His word.
WHAT WE BELIEVEWe believe in the living God.
God is Spirit; He is Almighty, without beginning or end. God is a trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God created the earth in six days by His Word; nothing came into being without Him. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the living God. He was born of a virgin and lived among us as a human. He died on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins and the healing of our bodies. He rose from the dead on the third day and ascended into heaven. He will soon come back to earth to reign as King.
Every man is a sinner and will be lost forever unless he repents to Jesus Christ. You must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ is the only Savior of men; He's the same forever. We believe that every follower of Jesus should be baptized in water. The only biblical and correct way is baptism by immersion.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is God's promise to all believers. One of the hallmarks of the baptism of the Holy Ghost is that one speaks in new tongues. We believe that speaking in tongues is meant for every believer, but in addition there are other gifts of the Holy Spirit, including prophecy or interpretation of tongues, that are not meant for every believer, God gives these gifts to whom He wills. The Holy Spirit gives us the power and ability to fulfill God's will on earth.
