Pentecostalism is a fairly modern movement within Christianity that can be traced back to the Holiness movement in the Methodist Church. A major focus of Pentecostal churches is Holy Spirit baptism as evidenced by speaking in tongues. We are approximately 170 different denominations that identify themselves as Pentecostal 

The Pentecostal name comes from an Event in the Book of Acts

Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Pentecostalism is an evangelical faith, that emphasizes the reliability of the Bible and the need for the transformation of an individual's life through faith in Jesus.

We adhere to the Bible's divine inspiration and inerrancy The belief that the Bible, in the original manuscripts in which it was written, is without error.

Pentecostals emphasize the teaching of the "full gospel" or "foursquare gospel". The term foursquare refers to the four fundamental beliefs of Pentecostalism:


The central belief is that through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, sins can be forgiven and humanity reconciled with God. This is the Gospel or "good news". Our fundamental requirement is that one be born again. The new birth is received by the grace of God through faith in Christ as Lord and Savior. In being born again, the believer is regenerated, justified, adopted into the family of God, and the Holy Spirit's work of sanctification is initiated.

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

Baptism into the body of Christ: This refers to salvation. Every believer in Christ is made a part of his body, the Church, through baptism. The Holy Spirit is the agent, and the body of Christ is the medium. Baptism with the Holy Spirit: This is an experience distinct from baptism into the body of Christ. In this baptism, Christ is the agent and the Holy Spirit is the medium.

Pentecostals, with their background in the Holiness movement, historically teach that baptism with the Holy Spirit, as evidenced by glossolalia, is the third work of grace, which follows the new birth (first work of grace) and entire sanctification (second work of grace).

Divine healing

We are a holistic faith, and the belief that Jesus is Healer is one-quarter of the full gospel.  Spiritual and physical healing serves as a reminder and testimony to Christ's future return when his people will be completely delivered from all the consequences of the fall. However, not everyone receives healing when they pray. It is God in his sovereign wisdom who either grants or withholds healing.


The last element of the gospel is that Jesus is the "Soon Coming King". For us "every moment is eschatological" since at any time Christ may return.

This "personal and imminent" Second Coming is the motivation for practical Christian living including: Personal holiness, Meeting together for worship, faithful Christian service, and evangelism.

Spiritual gifts

We are continuationists, meaning we believe that all of the spiritual gifts, including the miraculous or "sign gifts", are found in 1 Corinthians 12:4–11, 12:27–31, Romans 12:3–8, and Ephesians 4:7–16, continue to operate within the Church in the present time. We place the gifts of the Spirit in context with the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is the result of the new birth and continuing to abide in Christ.

Vocal gifts

The gifts of prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues, and words of wisdom and knowledge are called vocal gifts. Word of wisdom and word of knowledge

We understand the word of wisdom and the word of knowledge to be supernatural revelations of wisdom and knowledge by the Holy Spirit.


We agree with the Protestant principle of sola Scriptura. The Bible is the "al- sufficient rule for faith and practice";

Tongues and interpretation

A believer in a spiritual experience may vocalize fluent, unintelligible utterances (glossolalia) or articulate a natural language previously unknown to them (xenoglossy). Commonly termed "speaking in tongues", this vocal phenomenon is believed to include an endless variety of languages.

Power gifts

The gifts of power are distinct from the vocal gifts in that they do not involve utterance. Included in this category are:

Oneness and Trinitarianism

The oneness doctrine viewed the classic Christian doctrine of the Trinity as polytheistic. We believe in the doctrine of the Trinity, which is considered to be Christian orthodoxy.

Worship Ministry

Traditional Pentecostal worship has been described as a "gestalt made up of prayer, singing, sermon, the operation of the gifts of the Spirit, altar intercession, offering, announcements, testimonies, musical specials, Scripture reading, and occasionally the Lord's supper". Spontaneity is a characteristic element

of Pentecostal worship.


Like other Christian churches, we believe that certain rituals or ceremonies were instituted as a pattern and command by Jesus in the New Testament.
