Pentecostal Church Beliefs

The basic doctrine & beliefs of the Apostolic Pentecostal church

 

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, divinely revealed to man. We accept the Bible as the final authority for salvation and Christian living.

II Timothy 3:15-17

One God

We believe there is one God who revealed Himself to humanity as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh – He is both God and man.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16

Sin & Salvation

We have all sinned and are in need of salvation which comes by God’s grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.

We obey the gospel in repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection).

II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4

Christian Living & Holiness

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.

Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10
