About Damascus International Fellowship
Since 1972, Damascus International Fellowship shared the Gospel with our community. We believe every believer is free to serve in love, Galatians 5:13 . We offer a “Loving and Lifting Fellowship” for anyone who visits or joins our church. Damascus International Fellowship is led by Rev. James P. Broughton, III Senior Pastor and his wife Sister Tammi Broughton.
At Damascus International Fellowship, we don’t believe in coincidences. We believe that God has directed our paths to intersect. And we consider it a great blessing that you have chosen to join us today and share in our worship celebration. It is our prayer, that something you see, hear or experience in our worship service, will inspire you to develop or deepen a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We’re located in the Columbia District of Seattle, WA. It’s our mission to reach our community through service, kindness, faith and the love of Jesus Christ. We offer a worship service, Bible studies, childcare and outreach ministries. Anyone is welcomed at Damascus Baptist Church. Below is more information about Damascus International Fellowship.
God the Father: God the Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.
God the Son: Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, and in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord.
God the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men and women to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He calls men and women to the Savior, and effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believer unto the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
About the Bible: The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired. And is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. It reveals the principles by which God judges us; and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ.
Exodus 24:4 ; II Timothy 3:15-17
About Salvation: Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man or woman and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
