PREFACE From the highest to the lowest of God's creation we see the most perfect organization. We believe in the imminent, personal, premillennial second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (I Thes. 24 -.29-44), and we love and wait for His appearing (2 Tim. We deny, as false and unscriptural, Seventh-Day Adventism, annihilation of the wicked, conditional immortality, antinomianism, absolute perfection, so-called come-outism, the so-called resurrection life, the so-called redemption or glorification of the body in this life, the doctrine of the restitution of all things, as set forth in millennial-dawnism, and the teaching that we are not born of God until we are sanctified wholly. The Lord says, "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled," and The Pentecostal Holiness Church firmly holds that there are certain relations between husband and wife which are strictly private according to the Word of God, and into this sacred privacy no one has any right to inquire (Heb. It points us to Calvary, and to the return of Jesus, whose blood cleanseth us from all sin and prepares us for His blessed coming again.
The stars are all placed in order; the sun and moon have their tabernacles; the solar system is a display of God's wonderful arrangement. It should be administered to all Christians in both kinds, and unfermented wine only shall be used.
(f) The examining, licensing and ordaining of applicants; provided that no applicant shall be ordained who has not served two years in the ministry. (e) Receiving of reports of committees appointed in General Convention. In case of the absence of the pastor, or in the case of a church having no pastor, the Superintendent of the Annual Convention shall sit as chairman of the Official Board and church conference. It shall be the duty of the Official Board to investigate rumors which may reflect upon the members church, to hear complaints against, and to settle differences 10 between them, when possible, without a church trial; to examine into deeds and titles to church property, seeing that they are properly drawn and recorded, and to arrange as far as possible to protect the property against foreclosures for debts and other claims. All officers of the Annual Convention shall be elected annually, and shall be in the experience of the Pentecostal baptism of the Spirit at the time of their election. The officers of each Annual Convention shall consist of a Superintendent, an Assistant Superintendent, a Secretary and Treasurer, which together with a committee of two elected by the Convention, shall constitute the Official Board. It shall be the duty of the Superintendent to preside at the Convention, to act as chairman of the Official Board, and to preach the Word, giving his influence, and as far as possible his entire time, to the spreading of Pentecostal holiness throughout his jurisdiction. It shall be the duty of the Secretary and 'treasurer to keep a faithful record of all the business proceedings of the Convention, and an account of all monies received, including all collections for whatever cause, and for what causes the same was paid out. "Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we praise Thee for the great love expressed in the gift of Thy blessed Son, who suffered death on the cross for our redemption, and made there a full and sufficent sacrifice and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world, and did institute this blessed sacrament to be a perpetual memorial of His precious death until He comes again. "That is my desire." Here the minister shall proceed to administer the ordinance to the candidate, saying: "In obedience to the command of the Word of God, I baptize thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and may the blessings of the Triune God rest upon you." After the baptism of the candidate, the congregation shall sing a hymn, following which prayer shall be offered and the service closed with the benediction. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." We are proud to say that this website has been a catalyst for love by creating meaningful, long term relationships and marriages for hundreds of Christians around Australia.Most everyone realizes that the prosperity gospel (health-wealth gospel) is one of the holy grails within the Pentecostal Church. The New York Times created a simple chart of the data that is posted below (click on the image to enlarge) The Pentecostal group is at the bottom of the chart!The prosperity gospel is the belief that God will financially bless those he favors. So Pentecostal’s, how’s that health-wealth workin out for ya?
