About

Statement of Faith:

About FGTWE BELIEVE the Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in the persons of the Holy Trinity.

WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His complete deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the father’s right hand, and His personal coming again.

WE BELIEVE that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely on the merits of Christ, and that regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

WE BELIEVE in holy living, the present day reality of the baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, the acts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord’s supernatural healing of the human body.

WE BELIEVE in Christ’s Lordship of the church, the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immersion for believers, and the Lord’s Supper.

WE BELIEVE in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerated in the lake of fire

History:

The beginnings of Frankford FGT can be traced back to the early 1940’s when Brother John Stracinsky from Oshawa stood on the corner in front of the old Bank of Montreal and preached from the Czechoslovakian hymn book. From there, meetings were held in various locations in Batawa and Frankford until the original church building was dedicated to God on Labor Day weekend 1946. No small feat to build considering WWII and the strains that put on building materials.

The original building still stands and is used to this day although it has been built onto a couple of times since then, in 1965 and again in 1980. Along with the many great men and women who have served God as Pastors in this town, FGt is also responsible for producing many other great servants of God who have gone on to serve Him as Pastors and missionaries.

We are grateful for the faithfulness of God over the past 70+ years and look forward to what lay ahead.

“Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known.” Habakuk 3:2
