  • 1The Free Apostolic Pentecostal Church doctrine, is recognized by the State as a church and is licensed by the Ministry of Education and Religion. It is called Free because it neither directly or indirectly dependent on any foreign organization.
  • 2 The articles of the Creed as adopted by the 318 fathers, to seperate heresies from the church are the accepted Dogma, exactly ae written in the Word of God. It takes the statutes of the New Testament as its own, believes the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that all Scripture is divinely inspired and acceptable. (2 Timothy 3, 6). It is called Pentecost, because it believes that the believer should receive the Holy Spirit and receive power from on high to live the Christian life, as did the Apostles on the day of Pentecost and all the early Christians of the first Apostolic Church. The Leader is our Saviour himself, Jesus Christ, and those who serve Him, are considered to be His disciples.
  • 3The FREE APOSTOLIC PENTECOSTAL CHURCH believes and performs:
    • WATER BAPTISM, In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is necessary for a person to have already believed in Christ and the Gospel and to have repented from sin before going through the waters of baptism. (Mark 16, 16 - Acts 2: 36-39). It will therefore be men and women who are able to believe and repent. (Acts 8, 36-39).
    • The EUCHARIST, is celebrated just as our our Lord Jesus Christ commanded "in remembrance of Him" (Luke 22, 14-21) and delivered it to the apostles (1 Corinthians 11: 23-27). We believe that spiritually bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ, by faith. (1 Corinthians 11: 27-30). In Holy Communion only the faithful Christian who has repented from sin takes part (1 Corinthians 11: 28). Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday (Acts 2: 47 and 20: 7).
    • MARRIAGE, has to be faithful according to the Gospel (Hebrews13: 4).Divorce is prohibited, except due to fornication (Matt 5: 32) and remarriage is not authorized (1 Corinthians 7: 11). Only death can separate the married couple (1 Corinthians 7: 39), which is why the Free Apostolic Church of Pentecost doesn’t accept divorces.
    • ANOINTING WITH OIL, concerning the sick, provides cures for physical and spiritual ailments. The pastor and elders anoint the candidate with oil, lay hands on him and pray as instructed in the Word of God (James 5: 14, Mark 6: 13). Jesus Christ heals the patient in answer to that prayer of faith.
    • CONFESSION, must be made by the repentant sinner either before the church body (Mark 1: 5 , Acts 19: 18), or individually in privacy (James 5: 16), to receive forgiveness from the only Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ (Acts 4: 12).
    • The ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, is encouraged. Believers ask from our Saviour Jesus Christ himself, who is the only one who can give the man His Holy Spirit (Matthew 3: 11). Speaking and interpretation of tongues is one of the gifts given to that person as a sign that he/she has really taken the Holy Spirit, as was given to the Apostles and Christians of the First Apostolic Church (Acts 2: 5, 1: 44-48, 19: 6, and  1 Corinthians 14 :22).
    • The MINISTRIES, which are five and are given from the Leader of our faith, Jesus Christ: "And he gave, some to be apostles, some prophets, some to be evangelists, and some, pastors and teachers." Ordain bishops, who are called Elders in any church (Acts 14: 23), faithful brothers who must necessarily be married, with children, rules his house well and bears a good testimony (1 Timothy 3: 1-8, Titus 1: 5-10).
