Founded by Dr. Bob Rodgers, the purpose of Church Growth International of the Americas is to help bring church growth through the power of the Holy Spirit to North, Central and South America. CGI of the Americas is not a denomination or just another organization. It is a fellowship with a mission to evangelize our cities and nations with the supernatural power of God. To do this we must unite in fellowship with like-minded believers and leaders. CGI of the Americas will provide fellowship, but our mission and purpose is to strengthen and strategize as a body. We recognize the spiritual principle that one can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight.
We believe in salvation through the incarnation of Jesus Christ, his atoning life, death and resurrection, provided through the action of the Holy Spirit, expressed in a life of devotion, worship, and service in and through the community of Christ. John 3; Luke 24:45-47; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-6.
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, implemented at Pentecost, is the promise of the Father for all Christians, providing power for faithful, victorious Christian living, power for effective service. We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including speaking in tongues, are viable and desirable today, working within the individual and within the Christian community. Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46;11:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12.
Blessing of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ, through his gracious love and through the power of the Spirit, provides blessings upon Christians; those blessings bring salvation, healing, and spiritual and financial prosperity. John 3:16; James 5:13-15; Genesis 12:1-3; Luke 4:18- 19.
We believe that through the grace of God and in the life and atonement of Christ, God provides healing, including physical healing, to a broken humanity. All healing is the work of God. Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 9:35; Acts 10:38; James 5:14-16.
Second Coming of Christ
We believe that Jesus will return to earth, wherein all Christians who have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord. Christians of all ages will live with God forever. Matthew 24; Mark 13:24-37; 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.
