The Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13)
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors and do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
The Lord's Prayer aptly summarizes the Providence of God in guiding our Romanian Christian Community, not only to North Carolina but to greater America. We are a diverse group of people coming from various backgrounds. Some of us were born here while others emigrated mostly from Romania. Our religious background consists of various denominational beliefs and doctrines. Yet, what unites us into a fellowship and communion of believers is the gift of Grace given through the Holy Spirit.
Our guiding motive is faith seeking understanding. Our faith is belief in the Living God, which is both a mystery beyond human comprehension, yet a God that is revealed through the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
Our Church was brought together by the power of the Holy Spirit through direct revelation from God, whether through visions, prophecies or dreams, the Spirit spoke individually to us. By obedience to His word, we all left lucrative careers, schools, friends and family and some of us even changed professions in order to listen to God's prompting to relocate to North Carolina. In His mercy God promised that He set aside certain places as haven for His people. In His Sovereignty God brought us here to use us as candles in the dark, as guiding lights to bring about His Kingdom as harbingers of the Kingdom.
Our Church believes that you become what you worship. Being one body in Christ made up of various members enlivened through the Holy Ghost and the works of the Spirit while living in the flesh. Central tenant and guiding principal of our beliefs is that The Holy Spirit determines and guides our lives and we bring that into the Church service. We believe that the revelation of God uncovers, unveils, and discloses the knowledge and mystery that God wants to convey to us, and we need to conform to it. For us the principal of revelation is a disturbing surprise, is an epiphany that illumines and frightens us as well.
As a Christian community that is set apart as a holy nation in society, we daily must put on the full armour of Christ: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit, and with our feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Our purpose is to live apart from the world while living in the world and allowing God to live through us. Thus our ministry is to show God's love through our actions by holding true to the gospel which states in James 1:27 (NKJV) "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."
