The book represents the Word of God, the Bible. The open book represents truth and God’s divine revelation, while the bookmark is symbolic of our holding the standard of holiness as commanded by God.
The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It is taken from the account of Jesus’ baptism, where the Spirit descended on him in the form of a dove. It is a symbol of peace. The ascending dove represents NFCOG’s flight out of ashes into an organization founded upon Bible- based doctrine and rising to God with excellence.
The olive branch is a symbol of peace. In the account of the Great Flood, a dove returned to Noah with an olive branch letting him know that the flood waters had abated, and that God’s judgment was over. It characterizes the promises of God. The olive tree produced great quantities of oil, itself a symbol of the Holy Spirit and His anointing, as well as of consecration to the Lord.
The seven-fold flame represents the seven gifts of the Spirit – wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, fear of the Lord, and delight in the Lord. The red flame symbolizes NFCOG’s founding scripture, Zechariah 4:6, that speaks to the power of God.
