There are other religions that believe in one God: the Muslims and Jews. We, the United Pentecostal Church International, are a group of believers who have experienced Pentecost, and who follow the apostles and prophets of Jesus Christ, the chief cornerstone. There are many religious groups who believe in one God, but they do not proclaim the name of Jesus as that
By Kenneth F. Haney
It is time to sound the trumpet loud and clear as never before. The work must go forward with the sword kept close to us. The sword is the Word of God. Ephesians 6:17 declares: “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE?
Our message is a very positive message. There are no ifs and ands; it is absolutely predicated upon the Holy
Scripture. The Scripture is so profoundly clear and sure that there is little room for error.
There is a difference! Many religious groups in Christianity take their message from the traditional church, which has been drastically altered through the years from generation to generation, perhaps before, but especially beginning with the Council of Nicea 325 A.D. From this time there was a radical change from the original New Testament church. Thus, what we teach and believe and preach is vastly different from traditional teaching of Christianity. Our message must always be predicated upon Scripture, never tradition. The Holy Scripture is our blueprint. The Book of Acts is our pattern. This message, if preached and obeyed, saves from sin, keeps one from sin, and delivers one from bondage. It is a supernatural message and produces miraculous results. It is a message the world needs. It is never to be watered down.
Living in a world that is infested with drugs, alcohol, and sexual perversion with demented and twisted minds, this message that we preach brings emancipation from those chains. Thus, our message is more than a social gospel; it is a gospel of deliverance from bondage.
Our churches, as a result of biblical preaching, should thrive with old-time Apostolic power and revival.
Just think, we have the most powerful gospel in all the world! Every morning when we wake up, we ought to thank God for this precious truth and for the wonderful Word of God which is so fresh and true.
As ministers of the gospel, we should earnestly seek God’s anointing upon our ministry so that we can deliver this sacred truth with unction. Every United Pentecostal Church, daughter work, and preaching point must become a hot spot of revival where the truth is boldly declared! Thus, let it be known and noised abroad that we have become revival centers boldly proclaiming the message of the Scripture.
It must be proclaimed without compromise that there is ONE GOD according to the Scripture: the ONLY GOD and that HIS NAME IS JESUS, and without Him there is no salvation, for He is the DOOR to eternal life! This ONE GOD manifested Himself as Father in creation, and Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit in regeneration and empowerment.
