WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).
We believe God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection (Romans 5:12, 19).
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8, 9).
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (Luke 24:46, 47; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; 1 John 1:9).
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19, 20). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32)..
We believe that the Holy Spirit has spiritual gifts for the Christian; and that believers should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22, 23).
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticisms (Philippians 4:5; James 5:19, 20).
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ (Acts l6:5; Hebrews 10:24, 25).
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God; and there receive eternal life or death (Romans 2:1-16; 2 Corinthians 5:10).
We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Saviour (Revelation 20:10-15).
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (Acts 1:8; 8:4-8).
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15).

ABOUT FOURSQUARE

Parkside Church is a member church of the Foursquare Gospel Church of Canada, an organization with approximately 70 churches across Canada and a part of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. The vision of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel (ICFG) is to present Jesus Christ, God’s Son, to every person in every culture and nation as The Savior, The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, The Healer, and The Soon-Coming King. Since its founding, in 1923, that vision has been realized through evangelizing the lost and establishing local congregations in the United States and abroad, through the nurturing and training of believers into leadership on all levels of Church life, and in cooperation with other members of the Body of Christ at large in the fellowship of the Gospel and the fulfillment of the Biblical mandate to be “light” and “salt” on the earth. Today, the number of members and adherents in the Foursquare Church worldwide now stands at 4,113,981 worshiping in 38, 217 churches and meeting places in 138 countries.
