Shelbyville United Pentecostal Church, our mission is to serve people by creating a place of worship where the Presence and Power of God is manifest in every service. We are not a denomination. We are Pentecostal because we identify with the Day of Pentecost experience as recorded in Acts 2. We are Apostolic because we live and adhere steadfastly to the teachings of the apostles.
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the only authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
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). "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14: Acts 2:38.)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4)
We believe, as Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life, inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit are for the church today. (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).
We believe Miracles have not ceased because Jesus Christ has not changed (Hebrews 13:8). Christ shed His blood for the redemption of our souls, the healing of our bodies and the restoration of peace to our mind (Isaiah 53:5; Psalm 103:3). Believers are commanded to pray for the sick (Mark 16:18; James 5:14)
