The United Pentecostal Church International has been among the fastest growing denominations in North America since it was formed in 1945 by the merger of the Pentecostal Church, Incorporated, and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ. The UPCI now has a total worldwide constituency of over 4 million members in 177 nations. The basic and fundamental doctrine of the organization is the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking in another language (tongue) as the spirit gives utterance.

These three steps constitute a personal death, burial, and resurrection which goes to the heart of what the Gospel is all about. Acts 2:38, John 3:5, and Acts 19:2 are just a few of the scriptures that prove our salvation depends on active obedience and not just a passive poorly defined faith. Life magazine called the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in another language one of the greatest phenomenon of the 20th century. It is much more than that. It is Christ in you the hope of glory. Being born again is a life changing experience that Jesus defined as a necessary in order for us to ensure the eternal salvation of our soul.

In Spirit & In Truth
The United Pentecostal Community Chapel is a Bible-based, Spirit-filled fellowship. Pentecost is not a denomination but rather it is a new birth experience! We believe God changes people’s lives through the power of His Spirit. This includes physical and emotional healing, deliverance from addiction, restoration of relationships, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is fully divine and fully human, and we confess Him as Lord and Savior. If you have any questions while you’re here or if you would like a personal Bible study, please speak to the Pastor. We are here to serve and hopefully be a blessing to you and your family.

We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (II Timothy 3:15-17). Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. (Hebrews 12:14)

We believe that 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. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).

We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion. We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit). The UPCC teaches that the one God who revealed Himself in the Old Testament as Jehovah revealed himself in His Son, Jesus Christ. Thus Jesus Christ was and is God. In other words, Jesus is the one true God manifested in flesh, for in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (John 1:1-14; I Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9). While fully God, Jesus was also fully man, possessing a full and true humanity. He was both God and man. Moreover, the Holy Spirit is God with us and in us.

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38. We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues, Acts 2:4; Acts 19:1-6; Acts 10:44-48. We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 1st Corinthians 12:1-11.
