Vision & Mission

Vision

Church on Fire International is a vibrant, culturally diverse, non-denominational church with our headquarters in Cicero, Illinois, USA under the leadership of Reverend Dr. David Philemon.

Our ministry is making a positive impact in our community through the preaching and teaching of God’s undiluted word as well as practically demonstrating God’s ultimate love and power to humanity by deploying the Apostolic & Prophetic ministry gifts entrusted to us by God!

Mandate

Our assignment is to wipe away tears from the faces of all mankind and to bring humanity into God’s fullness for their lives through the preaching and teaching of God’s undiluted word and the demonstration of His ultimate POWER

WHAT WE BELIEVE

At Church On fire int’l we believe in greatness that is birthed from the spirit of God within us. We believe in the power of miracles, signs, and wonders that are evidence of His presence among us. We believe in the unbridled fervor of speaking in tongues that ignites our souls and aligns us with His will.

We believe in the power of mentorship, where we pour into one another to help each other reach our full potential in God. We believe in the beauty of service, where we express our love for God by serving our community and meeting their needs.

We believe in purpose, where each and every one of us has a unique and important role to play in the kingdom of God.

We also believe in the importance of fellowship, community, and family. We understand that we were never meant to journey alone, and that we are called to love, support, and encourage one another as we walk together on this path of faith.

We believe in the beauty of genuine relationships, where we can share our joys, struggles, and everything in between with one another. We believe in the power of prayer, where we can lift one another up in faith and trust in God’s unfailing love.

And above all, we believe in the true love for God that inspires us to boldly proclaim His name and live out His will in every aspect of our lives.

So, join us as we embrace the power of the Holy Spirit, as we pursue greatness and purpose, and as we boldly proclaim His love to the world around us. Be a part of our family, where you will find a community that loves and accepts you just as you are.

We believe that together, we can do great things for the kingdom of God, and we invite you to be a part of that journey with us.

Our Core Values

Learn more about our values and our story as a church by visiting the about us page.

We acknowledge Jesus Christ as the head of our church and fully submit ourselves to His will. In every aspect of our ministry our goal is always to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe the Bible is God’s inspired authoritative and trustworthy rule of faith and practice for Christians. Therefore, we submit ourselves to its teaching, commit ourselves to do what it says, and yield our lives to become what Christ desires for us to be.

We believe in the power of prayer. Therefore, the ministries and activities our church will be characterized by a reliance on personal and corporate prayer in all areas of our lives and ministry.
