Are You UPCI?

This is not to those that have left the UPC. This is for everyone that attends a UPCI church or affiliate that does NOT hold a ministerial license.

It was stated here that only those that hold license are in fact members of the fellowship of the UPCI...I saw some quotes that indicates we are ALL considered members, but we do not all have the same privileges or responsibilities..

what say ye?

The UPCI is an ministerial fellowship (organization). To be a member, you need to pay licensing dues. Saints are apart of the local church who just happens to be a UPCI minister. If another preacher was voted in who was not UPCI, then the church would not really be UPCI (unless of course it was affiliated)

This is my understanding of the situation.

Quote:
ARTICLE XX
LOCAL ASSEMBLIES

Section 1. Affiliation.

Preamble: All true Pentecostal believers associating themselves in local assemblies, and accepting their full personal share of responsibility for maintenance and promotion of scriptural order in the local body shall have a standard for membership. This standard may be determined altogether by the local assembly itself, providing it does not conflict with the Articles of Faith of the United Pentecostal Church.

It is recommended that each such assembly affiliate itself with the United Pentecostal Church International for the sake of identification, fellowship, cooperation and protection.
Quote:
We wholeheartedly disapprove of our people...
Quote:
RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS

The annual conference is declared to be an international religious holiday for all members, and all members are urged to attend. Furthermore, since the founding of the church occurred on the Day of Pentecost, Pentecost Sunday is also a recognized religious holiday.
Quote:
Section 4. Identification.

1. Each church that is either affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International or is pastored by a minister who holds license or credentials with the United Pentecostal Church International shall identify by sign or otherwise on the outside of its church building that it is associated with the United Pentecostal Church International.
Quote:
ARTICLE II
MEMBERSHIP

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."
The last one pretty much calls everyone in UPCI churches "members"
