A UNITED

PENTECOSTAL CHURCH

Bible – The inspired Word of God.  Gives true history on the creation of heaven, earth and humanity.  There is NO salvation outside of what is taught in it's pages.

God – There is ONLY ONE. (Deut. 6:4)

Father – The creator of all things and Father of all humanity in creation.

Son – Jesus is the Son of God...God manifest in flesh.  It took the shedding of blood to redeem mankind.  God had no blood so He had to take on flesh in order to shed it.

Holy Ghost – The spirit of God...the resurrected Christ.

Sin – The transgression of the law.  Fell on humanity through the sin of Adam.  The wages of sin is death to those who refuse to accept salvation.

Salvation – The deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ.  Consists of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus and the infilling of the Holy Ghost.

Water Baptism – Not just a symbolic ritual but the literal “washing away” of our sins. Needful in order to enter the Kingdom of God (His church).

Mode of Baptism – By immersion in water. Baptism, baptizo, to immerse, to dip.  Never by sprinkling.

Formula for Baptism – Administered using the name of Jesus. Father, Son, Holy Ghost are not names.  (Acts 4:12)

Baptism of Holy Ghost – Spiritual baptism is necessary to enter the Kingdom of God. Evidenced by speaking in another language.

Tongues – The initial evidence of receiving the Holy Ghost (Spirit). Speaking as the Spirit gives the utterance.  Also used to edify the church. These tongues should be interpreted. (1 Corin. 14:23-28)

Holiness – Living a life separated from the world.  We must present ourselves holy unto God, cleanse ourselves from from the filth of the world (flesh and spirit).

Divine Healing – By His stripes we are / were healed (Mark 16:18 / lay hands on the sick. James 5 14 / any sick among you).

2nd Coming – Acts 1:11 says He's coming again.  Thess. 4:16-17 says the Lord shall descend from Heaven with a shout, and the dead in Christ will rise first and the living will join them.

Resurrection – There will be a resurrection from the dead, both the just and unjust.

Judgment – Heb. 9:27 it is appointed unto man once to die and after this the judgment.  The eternal destiny of every soul shall be determined by a just God who knows the secrets of everyone's heart.Type your paragraph here.
