What We Believe
Struthers Memorial church is an Independent Pentecostal Fellowship founded in the early 1950’s. It has grown from a small house group of less than a dozen people based in the town of Greenock in the West of Scotland to a group of churches with branches in Scotland, England and Wales.
We believe in:
- The inspiration of scripture.
- The need for personal Salvation through faith in Christ.
- The Baptism in the Holy Spirit with signs following.
- The need for holiness in the church and in the individual lives of the believers.
- The gifts of the Holy Spirit as listed in 1 Corinthians 12: wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues, interpretation.
- The ministry of deliverance.
Our aim: The extension of the Kingdom of God in obedience to His will and direction, and the fulfillment of His purposes in our individual lives.
