Anchor of Hope Ministries is a ministry within First Church of God and are under the covering of Pastor Reynaldo Guerra. Our current location is in the city of Providence in the beautiful state of Rhode Island. Even though we are the smallest state we desire to bring revival to the New England area. We are predominantly a Hispanic-American church with Pentecostal roots.
We believe in God the Father who created the Universe. We believe in the Trinity: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, they are one God. We believe that Jesus Christ is God, who is the Only Begotten Son of God. We believe that by the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary, we receive forgiveness for our sins and in this way we become children of God and members of His kingdom. We believe that Jesus Christ resurrected and we have obtained resurrection through him. We believe that all men are born with a sinful nature and that what Jesus accomplished on Calvary redeems us from the power of sin.
We believe that salvation is accessible to anyone who wishes to receive it. We believe that by the disobedience of man in the Garden of Eden caused every man or woman to be born in sin thus forming grew that every man is sinful and needs salvation. We believe that salvation can ONLY be obtained through the acceptance and confession of Our Lord Jesus Christ as our sole and exclusive savior. That salvation is received by grace and by grace nothing more. We believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues, prophecies, healing, laying hands on the sick, casting out demons, prophetic gifts, and other gifts. We believe that the Bible is the Words Inspired by God and revealed to man and in it, we can find God’s purpose for humanity … We believe in the absolute authority of Scripture in the affairs of man. (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Peter 1: 23-25, and 2 Peter 1: 19-21).
We believe that the Holy Scriptures clearly state that after death there are two places. One of eternal punishment for those who refuse to accept the salvation that is only found in Christ and a place of eternal reward, heaven. (Matthew 25: 34,41,46, Luke 16: 19-31, John 14: 1-3, Revelation 20: 11-15). We believe in the Church as the eternal and universal Body of Christ, which consists of all those who have confessed with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, who was buried and that on the third day the power of God raised him from the dead … .. We believe in the ordinance of baptism through immersion in water … We believe in “divine healing”, provided for believers in the Sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary (Isaiah 53: 5, 1 Peter 2:24) … We believe that the Church will be brought to heaven “in the blink of an eye” in an event of global repercussion and different from the Second Coming, and which has been baptized with the name of the Rapture (Matthew 24:31, 1 Corinthians 15: 52, 1 Thessalonians 5: 2, 1 Thessalonians 5: 9, Revelation 4: 1, Revelation 19: 19-21) …
