Who are we?
The Church of God in La Rochelle is a pluralist community, of Pentecostal theological sensitivity, which wants to be convivial and open to all. A place of reflection, meeting and intergenerational dialogue.
The Church of God in La Rochelle is based upon the principles of Christ as they are revealed in the Bible, the Word of God. It has its foundation of faith and practice in the Scriptures and the vital experience of its constituents is scripturally oriented.
First and foremost, the Church of God in La Rochelle is a determinedly Christian church. It is built upon the person of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The doctrines and practices of the church are based upon His teachings.
The Church of God is founded upon the principles of Protestantism, although it is not a traditional follower of any specific leader of the Protestant Reformation. The denomination stands firmly for justification by faith, the priesthood of believers, the authority of the Bible, religious freedom, and the separation of church and state. It stands against abuses and extravagance of ecclesiastical ritualism and dogmatism.
Our church is a member of the Church of God in France, herself a member of the American Protestant movement called the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee), and the Protestant Federation of France (FPF), which united the principal Protestant Christian groupings in France.
