STATEMENT OF FAITH

What a person believes is the foundation for both life and ministry. Please read carefully and prayerfully this statement of faith of World Medical Mission.

(John 1:1-5; Philippians 2:5-11)

  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (Galatians 5:16-18)
