“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17).
Christ defined the New Testament Church by two key characteristics: His Church would be Truth-observing and Spirit-led. (John 4:23-24).
On this foundation stands the Association of 7th Day Pentecostal Assemblies, a body of Bible-believing congregations in Ghana with a growing global spread.Christ brought Grace and Truth (John 1:17); the two were never meant to be conflicting. He saves by His grace, and His grace leads to a new life rooted in righteousness and holiness. (Eph. 2:8-10, 4:22-24).
The Church must reflect the character of Christ, her Lord and Saviour, through the observance of His just and good commandments. (1John 2:3-4; Rom. 7:12). It's the basic identifying sign of a true people of God espousing faith in Christ. (Rev. 12:17, 14:12).
At the same time, the Church must also showcase the power of His saving truth by signs and wonders and miracles of healing and deliverance. (Mark 16:15-18; 1 Cor. 2:4-5).
To fulfill both takes the baptism of the Holy Spirit, providing power to obey, to serve and to witness to the world. (Acts 1:8). This is the essence of our faith and practice—driven by divine grace and power. (Acts 4:33).
We proclaim the full redemptive message of Christ—that His gospel, if obeyed, sets men free, not only spiritually but also physically. (John 8:32, 34; Luke 4:18-22). We preach the whole gospel to the whole man. (1 Thess. 5:23; 3 John 1:2).
