Re: Promiseland Church Austin,TX

Kenneth Phillips became the pastor back around the mid 60's when it was a UPC church. It remained a UPC church until about 1977 or 1978 when Kenneth Phillips left the UPC because he wanted to minister on television and in '77 the UPC officially banned it.

Since that time the church has been an independent Oneness Spirit filled church and is still pastored by Kenneth Phillips who is now 70 years old. His son Randy Phillips is a member of the popular Gospel singing group PCD (Phillips Craig & Dean) and pastors his own church on the other side of town in West Austin. Randy's church is called "Promiseland West". There are also daughter works of Promiseland in San Marcos, Texas and a few more other places.
"I think some people love spiritual bondage just the way some people love physical bondage. It makes them feel secure. In the end though it is not healthy for the one who is lost over it or the one who is lives under the oppression even if by their own choice"

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
