What is a “full gospel” ?

John Kissinger [03/31/2015 3:47 PM]
W. Faupel defined Full Gospel within the doctrinal themes of:
1) justification by faith in Christ;
2) sanctification as a second definite work of grace;
3) healing of the body through the atoning work of Christ;
4) the pre-millennial return of Christ; and
5) the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking of unknown tongues.

The great commission Preach gospel of God”s Grace, once and for all sacrifice and atonement of Christ death on cross plus resurrection, then in faith the church imparting Holy Ghost Power in miracles, healing, casting out evil spirits, basically acting on the book of acts, Jesus Christ, the same, today, yesterday, tomorrow and forever, read Derek Prince foundation series and Guy Duty also

The Holy Spirit in me. The Holy Spirit on me. The Holy Spirit through me.

I follow what Faupel proposes, but Christocentrically as
1) Jesus saves
2) Jesus sanctifies
3) Jesus baptized in the Holy Spirit
4) Jesus heals
5) Jesus is the soon coming King.
Though the second one above is specifically true of the Wesleyan stream of Pentecostals and is lacking in the so-called Finished Work stream.

Yes, let’s not forget the sanctification which some denominations have so easily “Left Behind”…

James M. Henderson says:

Troy, no not yet. While I am not quarreling with Dr. Faupel, I am a bit sensitive to the influence a denominational “ethos” has on the way some express theology. A tribe’s preference is just that, a choice to prefer one thing over another or to associate a particular doctrinal stance as their own. It cannot have a universal application, and yet that is what we all do. My objection is that we become hardened to any other point of view even when it is allowable according to our theology. A case in point is my own Foursquare church. While we affirm the Lord’s coming, there is no explicitly pre-tribulational content in our statement of faith. Yet, many in my tribe seem to think that all Foursquare are (or should be) pre-tribulational. Here, Dr. Faupel interprets what the “5-fold gospel” means. Does he acknowledge that this is his preference? It is not what that phrase means to everyone.

Troy Day says:

Thanks James M. Henderson I was quoting a comment by W. David Willaim Faupel on the 5-fold everlasting gospel. Did you see my response to your other comment related to Pentecostal commentaries?

James M. Henderson says:

Troy, I am more used to seeing the “full gospel” defined in terms of a 4/5 fold gospel of Christ the Savior, Christ the Sanctifier (for a 5-fold view), Christ the healer, Christ the baptizer in the Holy Spirit, and Christ the soon-coming King. Neither tongues nor a particular millennial view seem to be necessary for a 4/5 fold gospel.

Troy Day says:

1) justification by faith in Christ;
2) sanctification as a second definite work of grace;
3) healing of the body through the atoning work of Christ;
4) the pre-millennial return of Christ; and
5) the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking of unknown tongues.
