This site is written to, not at, apostolic Pentecostals. For the purposes of this site I define apostolic the way it is defined on the Apostolic Friends Forum:
There is One God. This one God reveals Himself as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
The Son is God himself in a human form or “God manifested in the flesh” (1Tim 3:16) [sic] 1
Every sinner must repent of their sins.
That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faithwith [sic] the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.2
My personal background is not just apostolic, it is holiness Apostolic. I was raised in a combination of independent holiness apostolic, UPC, and ALJC churches. Because of my background I sometimes use the terms “UPC”, “apostolic”, and “Oneness Pentecostal” interchangeably. However, I would like to stress that this site is not related to the current split going on in the UPC. I do not identify with the Oneness Apostolic movement at all, so please do not mistake this for an anti-UPC site!
