Pentecostal is a word that many misunderstand and the doctrine of Pentecost is just as misinterpreted. Part of this is falls at the feet of the Pentecostal fathers in the early 1900’s. Every small disagreement became a new Pentecostal denomination. Today, there is dozens of movement that are claim to be Pentecostal.
My background in Pentecostal Doctrine starts at the Brownsville Revival in July 1996 when I got radically saved and set free under the preaching of Steve Hill. From there, I attended Central Bible College and did some time at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.
For the sake of understanding, being Pentecostal is believing in the following: the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for everyone, the initial physical evidence of it is praying in tongues, divine healing is integral to the gospel and that Jesus will come to take us home before the Great Tribulation.
As you can imagine, Pentecostals is a little different than those who consider themselves Charismatics. While there are many things the two groups do agree on, there is some clear differences as well.
Is Pentecostal Doctrine a Oneness website?
For some, using the words Pentecostal or Apostolic would equal being a “Oneness Pentecostal.” Therefore, I want to be clear: I hold that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe in the trinity but place high value on our Oneness brothers. They truly are brethren.
Fundamental Truth: The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
There is things that they do have right and when that is the case, I will point that out. There will be cases where I quote theologians that believe in “Jesus Only.”
It is of deep conviction that as Pentecostals we need to answer the prayer of unity and relate to other Pentecostals that we have issues with for the greater sake of revival and the harvest.
