Originally sprung from the Baptist and Methodist, today this church has no comparison with either of those two denominations. They are the plainest example of ‘Church of Men’.
They claim to follow the Gospel as written, but all churches claim this. In Europe and the UK, we read other stories about them and their practices. Mental, sexual and spiritual abuse stories, beyond the pretty lines of Faith, Holy Ghost and their claims to Spiritually Heal through prayer.
If this church ever was on the straight, taking the reports and signals I observe, they sure are on a complete other road right now. It looks like the Mega Church effect has infected this church, and it’s heading for to the gut of hell.
Initiators of Pentecostalism
Charles F. Parham (began teaching that ‘speaking in tongues’ was the Bible evidence of Spirit baptism). This is nonsense! Speaking in tongues was a gift to the Apostles so that they could teach the gospel to all nations. Pentecostals are not Christians but abusers of the foolish people: their followers. The other initiator of Pentecostalism is William Joseph Seymour.
And like all the others, these churches will only baptise people into their church! And remember, God does not like this one bit! Asking the following questions, a true Christian will baptise people into the Church of Christ and let them go their way.
