Christ Charismatic Church of Zambia

Some of God's Beautiful Children from St Luke's Parish!   March 2010

Our Mission: Love God, Love People, and Make Disciples!

Our Vision:
I see a Church whose Heartfelt Praise and Worship touches Heaven and changes Earth; Worship which
influences the Praises of People everywhere, exalting Christ with Powerful Songs of Faith and Hope.


I see a Church whose Altars are constantly filled with Repentant Sinners
responding to Christ’s call to Salvation.

Yes, the Church that I see is so On Fire with the Holy Spirit, that nothing will stop it nor stand against it;
a Church whose people are Unified, Praying, and Active with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Church that I see has a Message so Clear that Lives are Changed Forever and Potential is
Fulfilled through the Power of His Word; a Message that sets Hearts on Fire.

I see a Church so Compassionate that people are drawn from Impossible Situations into a
Loving and Friendly Circle of Hope, where Answers are Found and Acceptance is Given.

I see a people so Kingdom-Minded that they will Count whatever the Cost
and Pay whatever the Price to see Revival sweep this Land.

The Church that I see is a Church so committed to Raising, Training and Empowering a Leadership
Generation to reap the End-Time Harvest that all its Ministries are consumed with this Goal.

I see a Church who’s Head is JESUS, whose Help is the HOLY SPIRIT
and whose Focus is the Great Commission!

YES, THE CHURCH THAT I SEE COULD VERY WELL BE – Christ Charismatic Church!

WE BELIEVE IN THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD
People who attend our Church come from all different experiences and backgrounds.  Some come from Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Presbyterian, Methodist, Pentecostal, Anglican, SDA and other churches.  Others come with no Church or religious background at all.  Suddenly, they find themselves at Christ Charismatic Church.  What does that mean?  We are unique.  We believe Church should be Fun and Exciting, yet without compromising the Truth of the Gospel.  We are a Christian, Charismatic, and Evangelical Church—a Church whose primary purpose is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, and we strive to get you connected with the Power of the Holy Spirit in your own life.  We are also an Apostolic Church with Bishops, Priests, and Deacons.  Listed below is a summary of the Essential Beliefs that all Christians share and hold dear.   This is what we Believe!

ESSENTIAL CHRISTIAN BELIEFS

God
There is one God.  He is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe.  He Eternally exists in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  These three are Co-Equal and One.  He is perfect in His many attributes of Holiness, Love, Power, Knowledge, Justice and Mercy.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22  |  2 Corinthians 13:14  |  1 Peter 1:2  |  Matthew 28:19  |  Psalm 90:2

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is God's Son.  He is co-equal with the Father.  He is both God and man.  He was born of a Virgin.  He lived a sinless, human life and offered Himself as the Perfect Sacrifice for the sins of His people by dying on a Cross.  He died to become a Substitutionary Atonement for the sins of His people.  He defeated sin and death, and arose from the dead after three days.  He ascended to Heaven’s Glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22-23  |  Romans 1:3-4  |  Hebrews 4:14-15  |  Isaiah 9:6  |  Acts 1:9-11  |  John 1:1-5; 14:10-30, 14:16-17


Holy Spirit  
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is the Divine Helper, Assistant, Counselor and Instructor.  He is present in the world to make man aware of his need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of Salvation.  He provides the Christian with Power for Living, Understanding of Spiritual Truth and Guidance in Doing what is Right.  When we are Baptized with Holy Spirit, we receive one or more of His Spiritual Gifts.  As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17  |  Acts 1:8  |  Ephesians 1:13; 5:18  |  John 16:7-13; 14:16-27  |  1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16  |  Galatians 5:25


God's Word
The Bible is God’s Living Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is a Supreme Source of Truth for Christian Beliefs and Living.  The Bible is inspired by God and is the Truth without any mixture of error. 

2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16  |  2 Peter 1:20-21  |  Psalm 119:105, 160; 12:6  |  Proverbs 30:5


Human Beings
Human beings are made in the Spiritual Image of God, to be like Him in Character.  As the supreme object of God’s Creation, we were designed for Dignity.  However, Adam’s sin catapulted Creation into a Fallen State and plunged all his Descendants into Depravity.  Thus, all of us are marred by Rebellion and Disobedience, which is called “Sin," toward God.  Sin separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

Genesis 1:27  |  Psalm 8:3-6  |  Romans 3:23  |  Isaiah 53:6a; 59:1-2


Salvation
Salvation is God’s free gift to us.  We receive this gift through Repentance and Faith in Jesus Christ alone.  Repentance means turning away from our sin and turning toward Christ.  Faith means trusting in Christ Alone for the Remission of our Sins.  Every person who Believes in the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved and will spend Eternity in Heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend Eternity in Hell.

Romans 6:23  |  Titus 3:5  |  John 14:6; 1:12  |  Galatians 3:26  |  Ephesians 2:8-9  |  Romans 5:1


Eternity
People were created to exist forever.  We will either exist Eternally separated from God by sin or Eternally with God through Forgiveness and Salvation.  To be Eternally in union with Him is Eternal Life.  Heaven and Hell are real places of Eternal Existence.

John 3:16  |  Romans 6:23  |  Revelation 20:15
           

DYNAMICS OF CHRIST CHARISMATIC CHURCH

Loving & All-Embracing
Our Church, like the Apostle Paul, strives to “become all things to all people so that by all possible means we might save some”.  We are Eastern Orthodox.  We are Catholic.  We are Pentecostal.  We are SDA and Protestant.  We are Charismatic.  We are Alive.  We are On Fire for God!  We want you to experience Christ’s Power and Miracles in your Life too, so we can all Love God, Love People, and Make Disciples.

1 Corinthians 9:22-23  |  1 Peter 2:5  |  Matthew 22:39


Our Worship
Our Pastors are Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, that have been Ordained in Apostolic Succession.  We utilize some Dynamic forms of Authentic Worship and Praise to God;  Liturgical Worship through the Sacrifice of the Mass, which Jesus Instituted at the Last Supper, Charismatic Praise and Worship Services, sometimes combined with a Healing Service, to Thank God for all He has given us and to engage the Gifts of the Holy Spirit more in our lives.  And then, we have those who are called to Religious Life, who Consecrate their lives totally to God, Contemplatives living a life of Worship and Prayer, while still living in the World and assisting those around them in their walk with God.

Revelation 1:5-6  |  Ephesians 4:11-12  |  Romans 12:1  |  1 Peter 2:5  


Our Preaching
Our message is simple and we are all called to Preach:  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be Saved!  When the Gospel is Proclaimed, we expect to see confirming Signs and Miracles to give Convincing Power to the Word, which will serve to accomplish God's Will, including that deepest of all His Desires, the Conversion of the Human Heart.  We are also called to Preach by our own Actions, and if we need to, we can use words.

Acts 4:29-30  |  Ephesians 4:11-12
 

Sacramental Church
A Sacrament is a Visible Sign of an Invisible Grace.  The Grace of the Sacraments is not caused by human forces, but by God acting in and through Christ and His Church.  Jesus instituted these Sacraments at the Last Supper, in fact, the Saints tell us that all from Heaven, the entire Heavenly Court was there to see the law of the new Gospel be put into effect.  We, the whole people of God, must be encouraged to participate in the Celebration of the Eucharist and the other Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Marriage, Holy Orders, and the Anointing of the Sick.   

Matthew 28:19  |  Romans 6:3-4  |  1 Corinthians 11:26


Baptism
The Sacrament whereby we become interiorly and indelibly marked as children of Christ’s Church, freed from the stain of Original Sin, and now able to receive the Gifts of Faith, Hope, and Charity.  Baptism incorporates us into the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  We die to this World, and are reborn in the Spirit.  We are adopted as Sons and Daughters of God, and become Heirs of the Kingdom of Heaven.  Baptism is important for Salvation, even for children.  Jesus told us “Unless a person be Born Again of Water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God”.

Mark 1:9-11  |  Matthew 28:18-20  |  Mark 16:15-16  |  Matthew 3:13-17 


Baptism in the Holy Spirit
On Pentecost they were "Baptized with the Holy Spirit" and were transformed into New Creatures, Bold Witnesses for Christ.  We too can learn how to Pray and "Stir Up" the Spirit, to set our Hearts on Fire for God!  When we receive the Holy Spirit, we can expect an Immediate or Gradual Experience of Deeper Union with God, our Loving Father and with Jesus, our Lord and Brother; a Deeper Understanding of Holy Scripture; a Greater Love for Others and a Strong Desire for Christian Fellowship; a Fuller Presence in our lives of the Fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience and many More; and the Receptions of one or more of the Charismatic Gifts of the Holy Spirit such as Wisdom, Understanding, Discernment, Council, Prophecy, Fortitude, Praying in Tongues, and Healing.  It will literally set your Heart on Fire for God!

1 Corinthians 12-14  |  Galatians 5:22-23  |   Acts 4:29-30  |   Matthew 28:18-20


Lord's Supper - Eucharist
The Lord’s Supper is a Sacrament whereby Jesus allows Himself to be received in the species of the bread and the wine.  At the Consecration in the Mass, the bread and wine become the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ.  This is a Mystery of the Church, and is a way in which Christ promised to remain with us until the end of the world.  We observe the Lord’s Supper on a regular basis in remembrance of Jesus Christ's atonement for our sins.  All Baptized Christians are welcome to receive the Eucharist.  And if you are not Baptized, we can fix that too!

John 6:50-58  |  1 Corinthians 10:16-17  |  Matthew 26:26-28  
 

Cross of Jesus
The arms of Jesus stretch out from the Cross, the Sign and Instrument of our Salvation.  We embrace the Cross as the symbol of Christ Crucified.  Daily, we unite our Sufferings with those of Jesus and offer them to our Eternal Father.  Thus, each of our members strives to willingly embrace the Cross, for his own Salvation and that of the Whole World.  But for those who do not wish to embrace all the suffering in their lives, we will employ the Ministry of Healing, invoking the Holy Spirit and Praying for the deliverance from their Sufferings.

1 Cor. 1:21-32  |  Romans 12:1  |  2 Corinthians 1:5  |  Colossians 1:24  |  1 Peter 4:13


God’s Power & Wisdom
We seek to live in Total Reliance on God's Power and God's Wisdom.  We are all weak, and it is precisely through Humbling ourselves and Embracing the Cross of Christ that God will draw near to us and carry out his plans through us.  It is God's Power that we need.  As we practice Holy Abandonment, accepting both Suffering and Consolation from His Hands with equal indifference, Surrendering our Lives and everything we do to Him, giving Him Full Permission to do with us as He Wills, making ourselves Completely Available to Him, and Committing ourselves Totally to His Purposes, we Clear the Way for Him to accomplish His Will in us and through us. 

John 15:5  |  1 Cor. 1:27  |  Luke 1:37  |  1 Peter 2:5  |  1 Corinthians 1:21-32


Lordship of Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is Lord!  We are to be Men and Women of Unremitting Prayer and Total Dependence on God.  Each member is encouraged to spend time in Prayer each day, thinking about God, Praying for and assisting others in our Community.  The Spiritual Life is our Personal Relationship with God, so we must Nourish It and keep It Alive and on Fire for God.

1 Timothy 2:5  |  1 Peter 2:5  |  Revelation 1:5-6  |  1 Corinthians 5:11-13


Mary Our Mother
Near the Cross stands Mary, our Mother.  We wish to Venerate and Honor the Blessed Virgin Mary as our Queen, to seek her Assistance in all our needs, and to follow her as the Perfect Model of the Spiritual Life.  Devotion to Mary ultimately leads us to Glorify Jesus Christ and the Father in the Holy Spirit.  As a sign of our Interior Union with Mary, many of our members constantly practice and embrace Devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, especially through the Prayer of the Most Holy Rosary.

Isaiah 7:14  |  Luke 1:26-28  |  Luke 1:46-55  |  Revelation 12:1


Ministry to the Poor
The Cry of the Poor must not be Ignored.  We desire to minister to them, including those in the inner core of our Cities and Villages: the Desperate, those in Bondage, the Addicted, the Abused, the Hungry, the Homeless, the Sick, the Lonely, the Isolated, the Alienated, the Abandoned, the Unemployed, the Runaways, the Street People, the Orphans, and the Widows.  While helping to alleviate their Material Needs the best we can, we wish to bring them, through the Church, to Jesus Christ and, thus, to a Peace that the World cannot give!

Ephesians 4:11-12  |  Acts 4:29-30  |  Matthew 28:18-20

SPECIFICS OF CHRIST CHARISMATIC CHURCH

    We the people of Christ Charismatic Church, Live by that One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith Professed by the Whole Church before the Disunion of East and West; and which adheres to the Doctrine of the Cross, as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ and His Most Holy and Beloved Mother Mary.

    The Clergy of Christ Charismatic Church in Zambia are Incardinated by the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, a descendant of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, an Eastern/Western Orthodox Rite.  Our Clergy are allowed Bi-Ritualism, the Permanent Privilege to Celebrate the Liturgy and Administer the Sacraments in more than one Rite, thus, we are allowed to use both Eastern Orthodox Rite Liturgies as well as Western Rite Liturgies.

    The word "Autocephaly" is Greek, being translated, means "He is the Head for Himself".  The Autocephalous Church is that Church which is the Head for itself, creates its Guiding Bodies for itself, and freely Lives by its Church Life itself, in brotherhood unity with other Churches.  In other words, a Church not being controlled by a Government Regime like the Communists of the Ukraine in past history.  Our Church does not exist because the Government says it exists, but it comes to exist where Zambian people of Good Will, freely unite as Christ's Children to form Christ Charismatic Church.  And with Christ as its Head, it exists in our Hearts, and Death has no power over it.

    The work of Christ Charismatic Church is the work of Jesus Christ, Who lives among our people, Who is in Zambia, in each of our Villages and even in every home, in each Soul He has his place.  Christ Cares for everybody, and through His Ministers, He Preaches the Gospel of His Kingdom to His people and cures any Sickness in them.  Christ looks for us and is in us!  Christ Charismatic Church teaches the Zambian people to Respect their Brothers and Sisters, their Orthodox Faith, their Traditions, their Native Language, their Culture, and to Love their Region, because he who does not truly Love their nearest Relative, Friend, Enemy or Neighbor, is not a True Christian.

Love God, Love People, Make Disciples!
Let’s Do It!
Amen.

Bishop of Zambia
The Most Reverend Mark Gregorczyk
 
Mark@gregorczyk.org


   
Mark Gregorczyk was born in Texas, United States, in 1957.  He was raised in the Catholic Faith, and later spent two decades in the Full Gospel Charismatic and Pentecostal Protestant Faith Movements.  God then spoke to Mark, saying “you will be returning to the Catholic Faith and you will become one of My Priests”.  Mark then entered a Deep Intense Interior Monastic Life that included Daily Mass, the 7 Divine Offices, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, and Spiritual Reading.  After Consecrating the rest of his Life to Holy Abandonment, that is, the Abandonment of his will to the Divine Will in all things, it led him to start experiencing God’s Grace and Miracles for the first time in his life.  His Spiritual life had now become more like a Roller Coaster, with God in control.  Soon afterwards, God spoke to Mark again, “If you continue to seek after Me with all your Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength, I will strip you of all affection for the things of this earth”, and He has been true to his Promise.

   After another decade of Prayer, Mark entered the Agape of Jesus Seminary.  In 2009, he was Ordained to the Priesthood by Archbishop Maurice McCormick of the Independent Old Catholic Church.  God had given Mark a deep yearning to serve as a Priest somewhere in this World where there is an extreme shortage of Priests, so in 2010, God led him to Zambia to serve as a Volunteer Missionary Priest for 6 Old Catholic Parishes in the African Bush.  When the funding ran out, Mark returned home to the U.S., and to his deep Monastic Prayer Life. 

In 2013, at the request of his Bishop, Mark traveled to Kenya to assist with the Governmental Registration of the Church and the building of an Orphanage near Lake Victoria.

In 2016, under God’s Inspiration, Mark compiled a Rule and Constitutions for a Religious Order, the Franciscan Lesser Missionaries of Charity, where its members will live a Contemplative Lifestyle, among and in service to the poor for the Parishes of Christ Charismatic Church in Zambia.  See the: Rule of the Franciscan Lesser Missionaries of Charity

In late 2017, Father Mark was Ordained to the Episcopacy, and Consecrated as a Bishop in the One Holy Catholic & Apostolic Church, a small Rite of Eastern/Western Orthodox descent.  God has now allowed Mark to return to Zambia to Lead and Shepherd Christ Charismatic Church, and to assist Father Gerald, who has untiringly Ministered in the Church for the last seven years.

God has truly given Mark a Heart for the people of Zambia; to Serve them, to Live among them, to Become one of them, to Minister to them, and to Care for them.  Mark’s Deeply Interior Life is the Soul of his Ministry, which generates an Intense Love and Intimate Union with God, and from it will come a true sharing in Christ’s Work of Saving Souls.
