Zoe Christian Fellowship church is a affiliated with Kenneth Hagin’s Rhema Ministries in Tulsa, Ok. that is pastored by Stephen Hecht of Warrington Pa. The purpose of Zoe Christian Fellowship church is to teach and preach without compromise through the Word of God of how we can live the wonderfully rich, abundant life that God has intended for us all.
Zoe is the Greek word in the New Testament for “abundant life.” Most often, Zoé is translated “eternal life” like in John 3:16 — “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”. Listed below are just a small sample of the Zoe core values of what they stand for:
The Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in the matters pertaining to conduct doctrines ( 2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
Our God is one, but manifested in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being co-equal (Phil.2:6). God the Father is greater than all the sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 15:26).
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION:
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:14; Rom. 3:10; Rom. 3:23; I John 3:8).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST:
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14: 16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4, 38, 39; Acts 19:1-7).
Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; Isa. 53:4,5).
RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD:
The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, ” This same Jesus shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” His coming is imminent. When He comes, “…the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air…” (Acts 1:11;1 Thess. 4:16, 17).
Following the tribulation, He shall return to the earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years. (Rev. 20:6).
