The Name of the Church

The name of the Church shall be called The Church of God (Pentecostal), Incorporated; Acts 20:28.

 

Pentecostal is not part of the name of the Bible church as such, but is to denote our belief in the experience of tongues as the day of Pentecost; Acts 2:4.  We believe that tongues are for a sign; I Corinthians 14:22- "Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not..." and an evidence to them that believe. Those that believe know about the tongues and have had an experience of them and know what to expect. Therefore, they wait on the Lord until he confirms the Baptism of the Holy Ghost through the tongues. We find that whenever there was the descending of the Holy Ghost, it is connected with tongues; Acts 2:11; 10:46; 19:6.
