The Pentecostal experience is a threefold process

Posted by Evangelist J King in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

The Pentecostal experience is a threefold process – repenting of your sins, being baptised in water in the name of Jesus, and receiving the Holy Spirit (accompanied by speaking in tongues as in the days of the apostles). Each of these is quite distinct from the others. All of them are essential to entering the kingdom of God. They are not mutually exclusive, but are fully complementary and together constitute the process of ‘becoming a Christian’. They may occur very close together or over a period of time. The important thing is their completion rather than their coincidence.

Col. 3:17 says to do all things in the name of Christ. So my question is, if acts is giving a specific pronouncement that must be made does that same pronouncement have to me made over everything you do?….since everything is to be done in Jesus name?

See Col 3:17, Acts 2:36-39!

John Conger [11/22/2015 7:37 PM]
Um I know what it says. If one is a command to speak over an action so that it qualifies as ‘ in Jesus name’ isn’t the other? Are we to say the words ‘in Jesus name’ over everything we do?

John you quoting the teaching of Ambrose not the teaching of Jesus Christ!

John Conger [11/22/2015 7:48 PM]
Not quoting anyone. Just asking a question of anyone who believes in Jesus name baptism

Lennie Marx [11/22/2015 8:28 PM]
Just as I taught like most you have no idea what a lie is! I m going to prayer you get lightened by the true light!

John Conger [11/22/2015 8:29 PM]
No answer? I’m open to convincing

Lennie Marx [11/22/2015 8:34 PM]
Log onto New Advent.org then Ambrose read who authored what your quoting! Good luck with that! Any questions?

John Conger [11/22/2015 8:36 PM]
Only the one I already asked. Not really interested in what Ambrose wrote. Thanks but shouldn’t someone on this page be able to answer questions about their beliefs instead of constant deflection and simply saying ‘ you’re wrong’ .

Problerly not! Check out www.haic.org there you will find truth!

    I’ve read Tom’s article before and is as limited as it gets. If you think you can sum up Pentecostal theology in 3 paragraphs or less, then … well, you have to think again

      Troy, the oneness branch of Pentecostalism likes to label all other branches as “false”. Heretics. not really Pentecostals.
      But that’s not right.
      Pentecostal has one meaning. It means one who believes in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, in modern times.
      Now, if a group has other beliefs alongside that, they need to define those as separate doctrines that make them different from other Pentecostals.

    CrossTheology is not oneness, but as a student of the Bible he’s got a lot to learn about the doctrines of Pentecostalism

    Of course we all should learn but I’ve always been in Pentecostal churches and I followed official courses about it.

    Catholic Orthodoxy allows for Jesus name and the Triunity to be spoke.

    Look there is a debate over formula I maintain Jesus name baptism personally as more Biblical but let people be about it. But militant Trinitarians run the mouth more in the AG then any other group. Or the Upci folks. Personally who cares let my conscience rule me as I read the Bible in context,

    I think Paul is right on for New Testament believers What ever we do in word of deed do it in the Name of Jesus giving thanks to God the Father. Now one may debate it means in the name referring to by that authority. But Matthew 28:19 uses the same phrase by the authority of Father ,Son ,Spirit.

    My family has been in Pentecostalism since it began .I believe in the Triunity of God but this is not three thrones or Gods.Dake take’s that to far in my opinion.I been in the Upci,Aljc,Cooljc,Church of God of Prophecy,AoG,etc as a minister and lay person.
