Welcome to the Church of Philadelphia, (Brotherly Love —philos—love for one another, delphia—brothers.)

 

· We are one body in Christ, a priesthood of all believers.

 

· The only requirement for membership in this body is to reckon yourself to be dead in Christ and alive in the resurrection. All of our teaching centers around Romans Chapter 6 vs. 3-11.

          

           Rom 6:3-11

           Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried   with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his  resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

           8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.            KJV

 

· We practice the reality of reckoning ourselves dead in Christ through daily repentance, using the four absolutes.

 

· Our way of gathering is inspired by the order of the first century church—we are a priesthood of all believers. Our leaders are but trusted servants—they do not govern. We have adopted an ecclesiology (church government based on the twelve traditions developed by alcoholics anonymous.)

 

· We are fundamental, premillennial, and classic Pauline Dispensational in our beliefs. (All these terms are explained on web site)

 

· We are a gathering of Christians in recovery who have come to recognize that God has re-formed in us, the first century church
