- We believe the Scriptures both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
- We believe in ONE God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
- We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
- We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
- We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
- We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this age. They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation.
- We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head.
- We believe that only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church.
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and every local church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs.
- We believe in the personal, and premillennial and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that this blessed hope has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
- We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
To make disciples of all nations. Matthew 28:19-20
A resource church empowering generations of Kingdom Christians for global reach.
Philosophy of Ministry
What does loving God mean? In ministry, PJEFC has adopted the stance of making disciples as a statement of loving God, and it is impossible to make disciples unless we too, love people.
If we were to use an analogy to describe the church and her ministry, it would be this: the trellis and the vine. The trellis is the structure upon which makes it possible for the vine to grow and be fruitful.
As Jesus has called us to bear fruit in abundance, we appreciate all of the trellis work (organisational structure, available facilities, abundance of resources) that is done behind the scenes that keep the church operating smoothly. However, a trellis does not bear fruit — only a vine can.
Hence, we are all disciples. And as disciples, we are to leverage on our ‘trellis’ to maximise the ‘vine work’. It will get messy, it will be painful, but it is moving in the right direction as commanded by Jesus.
What is a disciple?
A disciple is a learner of Christ, a Jesus follower. Everyone who believes in Jesus is a disciple. This means each of us are in a capacity to help others who are less mature in their Christian journey to take a step into maturity. As we are all in different stations in life, there is always an opportunity for us to disciple someone else.
Why make disciples?
Making disciples should be our main focus, primary drive and ingrained into our lives as Jesus followers. It is an act that brings glory to God as others hear about Jesus and receive salvation from Him.
How are disciples made?
It might sound like a monumental task, but it actually isn’t. In fact, making disciples might be the most natural thing that you can do as a disciple yourself! All that you need to do is to help someone take one step to the right, moving them from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of the Son through the 4 “P”s.
PROCLAIMING THE WORD
We speak God’s Word in different ways to people, ranging from sharing a Bible verse or living out your convictions based on God’s Word.
PRAYERFUL DEPENDENCE ON THE HOLY SPIRIT
We plant and water, but it is God who grows (1 Cor. 3:6). We do our part and pray for the Holy Spirit to change other people’s hearts.
PEOPLE GROWING TOGETHER
As a community, we want to create a safe space for us to learn and teach Christ together. Discipleship is not a one-man show, we are meant to disciple one another.
Being a disciple means being in for the long haul, as it is a way of life. We strive in moving forward by helping others move one step to the right.
Through Engagement and Evangelisation, we can reach out to those who are in the domain of darkness into the kingdom of the Son. Once they have been redeemed, we are to Establish and Equip them for the glory of God.
