What We Believe

Aberdeen First Pentecostal Church is a growing 21st Century revival church.

We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible (unaltered) Word of God.

We believe in the Great Commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion. (Luke 24:47)

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). (1 Timothy 3:16 & John 14:9)

We believe salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and is appropriated to humanity by God’s grace through the New Testament New Birth experience. (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8; John 3:3-7).

We believe the New Birth experience is comprised of repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This is the New Testament pattern for all believers to follow, as a result of their faith in Christ. (Acts 2:38; Luke 13:1-5; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:5-6)

We believe, through water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38)

We believe when a person receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that person will speak with other tongues under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4; Acts 19:6; Isaiah 28:11) 

We believe believers are called to live a holy and pure life before God and all humanity. (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:14)

We believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24, Proverbs 18:22, Ephesians 5:25 & 31)

We believe God’s power is still active in the church and healings, signs, and miracles are available to God’s people through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Peter 2:24, James 5:14)

We believe Jesus Christ is coming again for His church (rapture). The final resurrection and final judgment will come in the end. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous will inherit eternal death. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15)
