Re: New here

I love it when new people introduce themselves and share a little bit about themselves with us. Welcome to both of you and thanks for jumping in!

Re: New here

Hey Cookie. Not all UPCs are the same and certainly not all experiences are the same.

Without knowing what the details were, was this a reflection on that UPC or was it certain individuals in that UPC?

Also, are you sure it's UPC? There are many different Oneness Pentecostal orgs and independent churches that do not belong to the UPC. A group of "hardliners" left the org though there are still some left in the UPC

Apostolic is defined on AFF as:


  1. There is One God. This one God reveals Himself distinctly as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
  2. The Son is God himself in a human form or "God manifested in the flesh" (1Tim 3:16)
  3. Every sinner must repent of their sins.
  4. That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
  5. That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faith with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
  6. The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.

I did however love the on fire service and on my first visit I got the holy ghost which to me proved to me how real God's spirit is. I look forward to being a hopeful member as I take this journey towards figuring things out in my faith life.
Welcome, Cookie, and good luck on your journey!
