What We Believe


The vision and mission of Pentecostal Deliverance Church of Christ is To Build A Diverse, Holistic Ministry, Which effectively Meets The Needs Of All People.

We desire to love the people of God, create new disciples (follower’s) of Jesus Christ, and help others become all that they can be in life. We look to provide spiritual as well as natural support for all those who come into our doors.



}  We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible Word of God.

}  We believe there is one God, eternally existence in three persons, God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the church, which is at Christ return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance, faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ and being baptized in water.

We believe that the redemption work of Christ on the cross provides healing from the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe the baptism of the Holy Ghost according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in this present world.

We are a Theocracy (Ruled by God) - Jesus Christ is the Head of this church body. (Eph.1:22) We believe in Pastoral Authority - Jesus Christ chooses to express His authority through people who are His gifts to the Church. (Acts 20:22)



Pentecostal Deliverance is a Pentecostal Holiness Church.  It believes in the baptism of the Holy Ghost as it is recorded in Acts 2:4, which we call the Pentecostal Experience.  We believe in holiness as a way of life, to be taught, practiced and lived as recorded in Hebrews 12:14.  We believe in the sacredness of the holy scriptures, old and new.  We believe the Word of God to be infallible and inspired by God.  We believe in the triune God or the trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 14:1, John 15:26).  We believe that the son of God died the sacrificial redemptive death for the whole work of salvation by the grace of God.  We believe the church to be the body of Christ, a body of baptized believers.  We believe in the baptism in water and in the Holy Ghost.  We believe in salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  We believe in the second coming of Christ, new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.


The Church forms a spiritual unity of which Christ is the Divine head.  It is ruled by one spirit, the spirit of Christ.  It professes one faith, shares one hope, and serves one king. It is the citadel of the truth and God’s agency for communicating to believers all spiritual blessings.  The church then, is the object of faith rather than of knowledge.  The name of our church “Church of Christ” is supported by 1 Thess. 2:14, and other passages in the Pauline Epistles.  The word “church” or Ekklesia was first applied to the Christian society by Jesus Christ, in Matthew 16:18, the occasion being that of his benedictions of Peter at Casearea Phillippi.


The Second Coming of Christ: We believe in the Second Coming of Christ that He shall come from heaven to earth personally, bodily, visibly (Acts 1:11, Titus 2:13, Matthew 16:27 & 24:30, Luke 21:27, Titus 2:13); and that the church, the bride, will be caught up to meet Him in the air (1 Thessolonians 4:16-17).  We admonish all who have this hope to purify themselves as He is pure.


Divine Healing: The church believes in and practices Divine Healing.  It is a commandment of Jesus to the Apostles (Mark 16:18) Jesus affirms His teaching on healing by explaining to His disciples, who were to be Apostles, that healing the afflicted is by faith (Luke 9:40-41).  Therefore we believe that healing by faith in God has scriptural support and ordained authority.  (James 5:14-15) writing in His epistles encourage elders to pray for the sick, lay hands upon them and to anoint them with oil, and that prayer with faith shall heal the sick and the Lord shall raise them up.  Healing is still practiced widely and frequently in the church and testimonies to healing in our church attest to that.


Miracles: The church believes that miracles occur to convince men that the Bible is God’s Word.  A miracle can be defined as: An extraordinary visible act of divine power wrought by the efficient agency of the Will of God, which has as its final cause the vindication of the righteousness of God’s Word.  We believe that the works of God, which were performed during the beginning of Christianity do and will occur even today where God is preached.  Faith in Christ is exercised, the Holy Ghost is active and the gospel is promoted in truth (Acts 5:15-16, 9:33-43; Luke 4:36, 7:14-15, 5:5-6).


Baptism of the Holy Ghost: We believe that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is an experience subsequent to conversion and that tongue speaking will be consequence of the Holy Spirit with the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit as evidence (Galatians 5:22-23, Acts 10:46, 19:1-6, 1 Corinthians 14:2, Acts 4:33, 5:14, 14:8-20)  We believe that a Holy Ghost experience is mandatory for all men today.
