We are Pentecostal and we

  • speak in tongues,
  • do divine healing,
  • preach prophecy,
  • and posses other gifts from the Holy Spirit

and these are the norm.

Our Leaders are Christian prophets and God-called apostles.
Salvation in Jesus Christ
Salvation is the most fundamental lesson for Pentecostal Christians. Bible studies focus on understanding the sinless creation of
humanity, the fall of humanity in the Garden of Eden, the futility of animal sacrifices to remove the nature of sin and the death of Jesus
on the cross for the salvation of humanity.

Water Baptism
Some Bible studies focus on understanding water baptism as a command to the believer from Jesus. Participants study the symbolism
of water baptism as death to the sinful nature, water baptism as a public witness the recipient has decided to follow Christ and the
symbolism of baptism as resurrection to the newness of life.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit
In studying baptism, Pentecostal Christians also discuss the concept of baptism in the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit
comes to those who follow Jesus Christ, studying God's promises in the Old and New Testaments to send his Spirit to humanity,
the fulfilling of that promise on the day of Pentecost with the ability to speak in other languages and the personality, gifts and workings
of the Holy Spirit.

Christian Service
Pentecostal Christians consider Christian service the main purpose of baptism in the Holy Spirit. In Bible studies, participants read and
discuss scriptural passages that call for every believer to be a witness for Christ and bear much fruit in His kingdom through an
understanding of the individual gifts, callings and talents God has given them.
