Petra Church is an Elim Pentecostal. We are a lively Spirit -filled multiracial church, friendly church in Perivale west London that seeks to raise a people who know themselves to be accepted, secure and significant in Christ Jesus. We aim to serve the people in our local community and beyond who are looking for a real and vibrant relationship with God.
Petra Church is built upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; as He declared in (Mathew 16:18) “Upon this rock” (Petra) I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not withstand it. We therefore acknowledge Him to be the source of our life and the purpose for our existence, we acknowledge that the local church is called to be at the cutting edge of the kingdom of God’s impact upon the world.
Our goal is to Know Him and make Him known to others, we enjoy contemporary celebratory worship and inspiring, biblical teaching which feeds our faith for practical daily living. We have midweek life groups fellowship for both men and women where real support and encouragement is share, our weekly prayer meeting is Holy Spirit centred as we daily experience the raw power of God at work in our lives and we also do go out on the streets making Jesus known as we share the good news to those who are yet to encounter His saving grace. Our desire is to pursue the presence of God and experience the unchanging love of our father’s heart.
There is a real sense of family feel among us in all our meetings and we place great value on building friendships. At Petra Church everybody is valued, love and accepted, come and have a taste of real fellowship.
We look forward to seeing you, God bless you.

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.
We believe in the true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His blood shed, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and His second advent to receive His Church.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification, and that the believer is also promised an enduement of power as the gift of Christ through the baptism in the Holy Spirit with signs following. Through this enduement, the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service.
We believe in the necessity for salvation of repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit and a holy life.
We believe in the universal sinfulness of all men since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and that these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.
We believe in the ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers and in the present operation of the manifold Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament.
We believe in the baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ and the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until His return.
We believe that the Gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the Gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.
The Coming King
We believe in the personal, physical and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign in power and glory.
The Future State
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgement of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
