We had this discussion a while back and I just read this in my trusty UPCI manual, and thought the bolded part was interesting.


General Constitution

Article II

Membership in the United Pentecostal Church International shall consist of all ministers and missionaries holding an accredited credential or license, and all members of local assemblies which are affiliated with us, and shall be called "Organization".

Ah .. the perennial question ... you are a member as long as you pay your dues.

Ah .. the perennial question ... you are a member as long as you pay your dues.

The point of the discussion was that membership was only for ministers. I asked why the Manual addresses the local assembly if they are not members of the org itself. I think I have found the answer. You are a non-voting member of the UPCI if your church is affiliated with the org.

Actually, what Matt has quoted is what I had always thought. Non-voting member... So what good is membership?

I guess not, because they are not mentioned as being members of the org. Only affiliated church members are part of the "organization" according to the above.

Affiliation is when you turn your buiding over the organization, so I guess affiliated church members have paid their due if they are willing to give their building to the organization...

When we were missionaries we were told to count anyone "looking our way" as a member. TB refused to do that.

Where I come from back home pretty much anyone who considers themselves a member of a UPCI church considers themselves a member of the UPC. They don't know there's anything much else out there for the most part.

How about this?

Stand outside your local UPC church and ask folks coming out of the building.... "Are you a member of the UPC?".

I am sure that most will answer yes.

Whatever the manual says or doesn't say it has been drilled into the people in the past by the ministry that they (the saints) are the UPC and some have even gone a step further and preached the UPC was the Bride of Christ.

The AMF does not have districts (Elder Epley said they did way back). My understanding is that the AMF is a fellowship of ministers. There are no presbyters or district supervisors. They have a general board that basically takes care of the business of the AMF, but has no authority over the local church.

It is really set up the Apostolic way.

I don't think that is likely because we don't draw any distinction based on the fellowship that one belongs to. Criteria for fellowship is all about message and life lived. For many, especially to those who have been wedded to the UPC for a long time, this is hard to take at face value. I know it was for me. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop but I'm still waiting. It is certainly not perfect, like any group of men flawed humanity sometimes stands in the way. But so far I can see nothing better that I would want to be part of.

Yes there were some men in the early days of the AMF that believed the 'light doctrine" most were connected in some way to Haywood's teaching. I do NOT know one preacher that believes that today. However Elder Terry's statement seemed somewhat misplaced since he belonged to a group that it's Bible colleges such as Stockton & S. Paul taught the same.
Elder Terry was one of the biggest desenters the UPC had back then and talked of leaving but when the AMF formed there was an issue(which was also found in the UPC) that kept him out and he became active in fighting the AMF.
Having preached in most of the churches pastored by AMF men I do not know of a setiment among the laity of being AMF but if their is then shame on the preacher. The AMF is NOT the church.
NO tithe is sent to the fellowship we are against that it was addressed in the formation of the fellowship.

I heard about the "light doctrine" sometime way back in the 70s. Although I was young and certainly not a great Bible scholar or anything like that it sounded 'strange" to me. I rejected it almost straightway because it didn't make sense and it didn't line up to what scripture I did know at that time.

To me you are either saved or not. There's no other position except one of those 2.

light doctrine? What does that mean? I H Terry spit nails and drank wine(for communion) maybe not in that order :). Nothing light in that dude. Also, I remember in the early days if you went to an amf meeting, you had better bring your gloves. We went to a couple when I was a kid. My dad thought there was too much fighting but did like some of the men. So with that much fussing, I would think "light" doctrine would be run out of town. Most of the cats I have met in that org are straight as arrows. I admire some of them. Steve Epley, Robert Caveness, Crawford Coon, Steve Coon, James Mustain, Darnell Fletcher, and James Groce are all men I admire. They seem to be good guys.

light doctrine? What does that mean? I H Terry spit nails and drank wine(for communion) maybe not in that order :). Nothing light in that dude. Also, I remember in the early days if you went to an amf meeting, you had better bring your gloves. We went to a couple when I was a kid. My dad thought there was too much fighting but did like some of the men. So with that much fussing, I would think "light" doctrine would be run out of town. Most of the cats I have met in that org are straight as arrows. I admire some of them. Steve Epley, Robert Caveness, Crawford Coon, Steve Coon, James Mustain, Darnell Fletcher, and James Groce are all men I admire. They seem to be good guys.

Elder Crawford Coon is UPC unless something has changed lately?

And Elder Steve Coon died last month.

So sad, for he was a good man that believed and preached the Apostolic message.

As far as I know he is still in Jena LA. He is a GREAT bible teacher. We used to have him some yrs as the day teacher at the UPCI campmeeting. I have many tapes of him.
