What We Believe

Pastor Ronald Prather

We believe…in the One True and Living God,
maker of all creation, the all-knowing, everywhere-present, eternal Father; the source of all goodness, truth, and love; Who has manifested Himself in His Son, Jesus Christ, for the purpose of redemption and as the Holy Ghost for the purpose of intervening in the live of people.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; 2Corithians 13:14; 1 Timothy 1:17, 3:16, 6:13-16)

We believe…in the divine inspiration of the Scriptures,
…and that the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the Word of God given through people, and that the Scriptures we possess today are the sufficient rule of faith, and practice and the final authority for truth and salvation.
(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21) ... [READ MORE]

The Way We Worship

United Pentecostal Church International

If you have never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-filled service before, you will discover that Biblical expressions of worship are still practiced today.  Join in with us as we praise God together in spirit and in truth.

  • We pray together aloud because in the Bible we read, "They lifted up their voice to God with one accord" (Acts 4:24).
  • We lift our hands in praise because in the Bible we read, "Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord" (Psalm 134:2).
  • We sing with all our hearts because in the Bible we read, "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth:  make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise" (Psalm 98:4).
  • We play musical instruments because in the Bible we read, "And all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments" (2 Samuel 6:5).
  • We clap and shout unto God because in the Bible we read, "O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph" (Psalm 47:1).
  • We dance before the LORD because in the Bible we read, "Praise Him with the timbrel and dance:  praise Him with stringed instruments and organs" (Psalm 150:4).
  • We testify publicly because in the Bible we read, "I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee" (Psalm 22:22).
  • We anoint with oil for divine healing because in the Bible we read, "Is any sick among you?  Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord" (James 5:14).
  • We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because in the Bible we read, "When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation" (1 Corinthians 14:26).
