The Church is called:
Free, because it is autocephalous and has no affiliation with other missionary organizations.
Apostolic, because we have adopted the doctrines and practices of the first Apostolic Church.
Pentecost, because we believe that the believer should receive the Holy Spirit and be clothed with power from on high, as was the case with the apostles on the day of Pentecost, as well as with all the Christians of the first Apostolic Church.
Our leader is our Savior Jesus Christ Himself, and those who serve Him are considered His servants.
The Free Apostolic Church of Pentecost dogmatically accepts all the articles of the symbol of the Faith (Nicene Creed), as established by the 318 Fathers, in order to distinguish heresies from the Church that correctly believes the Word of God. We believe in the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We have as our statute the New Testament, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we believe that the whole Bible (39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament) is divinely inspired and useful. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Statement of Faith
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible;
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-Begotten, begotten of the Father before all worlds,
Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father; by Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man;
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried;
The third day He arose again, according to the Scriptures;
And ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father;
And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead;
Whose Kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father;
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe in One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sin.
I look for the Resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Jesus Christ, Mark 16:15-18
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
Apostle Paul, Colossians 3:12-14
To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Jesus Christ, Revelation 3:21-22
