Statement of Faith

Counce United Pentecostal Church’s doctrine is based on what the Holy Bible teaches in all beliefs and lifestyles.  We shall endeavor to keep the unity of The Holy Spirit until we all come into the unity of the faith.

Based on Scripture within The Holy Bible, we believe the following…

God

There is One God, Who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as The Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh.  He is both God and Man.

Deuteronomy 6:4
Ephesians 4:4-6
Colossians 2:9
1 Timothy 3:16

Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation.  Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23-25
Ephesians 2:8-9

The Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.  We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in The Name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving The Gift of The Holy Spirit (resurrection).

1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Acts 2:4
Acts 2:37-39
Romans 6:3-4

Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others.  We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully.  The supernatural Gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.

Mark 12:28-31
II Corinthians 7:1
Hebrews 12:14
I Corinthians 12:8-10

Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church.  In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment.  The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Revelation 20:11-15
