12 PILLARS OF FAITH

In 2010, God gave Pastor Craig these 12 pillars, upon which the vision of Promise of Life Church is established. These 12 foundational pillars are found in Acts 2:41-47.

“…they gladly received the Word… they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine” vs. 41, 42- At POLC, we love the Word of God! We hunger for it and give it the honour that it is due by putting it first in every area of ministry. Our pastors minister the uncompromising Word of God with boldness and clarity (Psalms 138:2).

THE WORD & DOCTRINE

THE WORD & DOCTRINE

“… fellowship and breaking of bread… from house to house” vs. 42, 46 - At POLC, fellowshipping with one another around food, is a vital aspect of the ministry. A variety of opportunities to fellowship are organized inside and outside of the church.

FELLOWSHIP

FELLOWSHIP

“… in prayers…” vs. 42 - Prayer is an essential part of the ministry at POLC. We believe that prayer paves the way for the power of God to move on our behalf as a church, enabling us to fulfill the vision He has given to our pastors.

 (Ephesians 6:18).

PRAYER

“… and fear came upon every soul…”

vs. 43 -  At POLC, we believe that the things of God are worthy of the highest reverence and respect. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom  (Psalms 111:10)!
