    This link explains Apostolic Pentecostal beliefs:

    *ADDED* The early church always baptized in Jesus’ name & didn’t teach the “trinity”, they certainly weren’t a cult.

  • Katy says:

    Baptist – Only one person prays and worship is calm

    Pentecostal – Ooga boobla-to no sha-la hoto bee ba

    Apostolic – Same as Pentecostal

  • Mike says:

    Pentecostals and Apostolics are usually charismatic and big on gifts of the spirit and use contemporary music during their worship services. Baptist have a quieter style of worship with mainly old hymns and are non Charismatic, baptist place more emphasis on bible reading, where Pentecostals and Apostolics put more emphasis on the praise and worship in the beginning of the service. Some Pentecostals and Apostolics believe you can lose your salvation, baptist don’t believe this.
    God bless.

  • Chris says:

    “Apostolic Pentecostal” is a cult that denies the Trinity, and teaches that water baptism saves.

    Avoid “apostolic pentecostal” teachings.

    “Apostolic pentecostal” leads to eternal torment in hell, because it teaches a false gospel of works (Galatians 1:6-9).

    True salvation is only by faith alone in Jesus. Jesus loves you so very much! :D Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, 1 John 5:13).

    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to eternal hell, is by believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died for our sins on the cross as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe this and you will be in heaven, no matter what!

    Please pray now: “Jesus, please forgive me of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and You rose from the dead. Thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die. :)

    The Apostolic Pentecostals are not a cult at all. They believe as the apostles do. They believe as it was on the day of Pentecost. Now for baptism the word is used in at least 86 verses in the new testament. Now if it is talked about that many times there must be some importance.

    In mark 16:16 it states “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”. Well this verse alone is pretty compelling.

    Then in 1 peter 3:20 it states “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:”. So if it doth now also save us does that mean that we should be batized to be saved??

    Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”.This one says for the remission of sins or to wash them away. I want my sins washed away.

    Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” Ok buried with him into baptism into death

    Romans 6:7 “For he that is dead is freed from sin” free from sin by the death that is created by baptism. OH how I want my sins to be dead.

    I can go on and on. In conclusion Jesus says you must be baptized to be saved. Peter says it in numerous locations that you must be baptized to be saved. And Paul preaches it in several locations. Now with these men of GOD saying that you need to be baptized why wouldn’t you do it. Probably because people of today are being taught false doctrine and satan is very happy with his works. READ THE WORD!!! Most that are fooled are not reading for themselves.

    First off, I came to this website primarily because I wanted to know the difference between Baptist and Apostolic. As I read some of the responses, I was very disturbed. The first few responses have vulgar language and cast aspersions instead of answering the question. As unfortunate as those responses were, the most mind bending response was written above by “Chris”. He said that “It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation” and that all you have to do is believe and “you will be in heaven, no matter what!”. I’m not taking the time out to write this to bash or insult Chris, but because the devil is a liar. To say that salvation can’t be lost is preposterous and not biblical. If it were true then that would mean that NOTHING that you do would compromise you’re path to heaven. That means you can lie, steal, kill, blaspheme, fornicate without worries. The devil is a liar.

    Luke 1:77 ” To give knowledge of salvation unto his (God’s) people by the remission of their sins,”. Yes you do have to believe in order to be saved, but you have to repent of your sins and be baptized in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for the remission of sins ( see Acts 2:38). Repentance, prayer and duplication, fasting, witnessing are the things that we as believers must do in order to maintain our salvation. If we don’t bare the name of Jesus Christ, we are none of his. We have to obey his commandments and by faith we must walk, mortifying the deeds of the body in order to have eternal life in heaven (see Romans 8:13)

    I trust that someone who is at a crossroads in what they believe will read this and be encouraged or enlighten by the word of God be inspired to know him more than they do now.

    “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”. (Philippians 3:13-14)

    “For Brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion unto the flesh, but by love serve one another”. (Galatians 5:13)

    God bless you all

    *Supplication, not duplication

    Hello Everyone..

    I was baptized in a Baptist Church recently..I was baptized in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son and in the name of the Holy Ghost…my boyfriend was baptized in a Apostolic Church and was baptized in Jesus name years ago. Him and his mom believe that I was not baptized correctly and that I will go to hell if I don’t get baptized in Jesus name. I don’t have the scriptures in front of me but I have read both in the bible regarding baptism. Can anyone enlighten me on this one? I have just joined a church home. I’ve always had a personal relationship with God but I never made the steps to learn more and get closer. I am doing that now and I just want too make sure I am taking the right steps.

    Jesus specifacaly says.. “Baptise in the name of the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit” ~Matthew 28:19-20.. who are you gonna follow.. Jesus, or Peter, a man who followed Jesus.

  • jazz says:

    Yes, my sister you are suppose to get baptized in Jesus name because in the books of acts chapter 2 it says When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.

    5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

    13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

    Peter Addresses the Crowd

    14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

    17 “‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
    Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
    18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
    19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
    20 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
    21 And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[c]
    22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,[d] put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. 25 David said about him:

    “‘I saw the Lord always before me.
    Because he is at my right hand,
    I will not be shaken.
    26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest in hope,
    27 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    you will not let your holy one see decay.
    28 You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.’[e]
    29 “Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. 30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. 32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,

    “‘The Lord said to my Lord:
    “Sit at my right hand
    35 until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet.”’[f]
    36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”

    37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

    38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
    Also yes Jesus does say in matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
    But notice that Jesus said in the name of and his name of course is Jesus so how do we know this we know this because if we go to the book of Isaiah chapter 9 we can see where isaiah says 6 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
    And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
    It is very obvious that the disciples relized that Jesus was Father,
    Son, and Holy Ghost as it says in Isaih 9:6. My sister I say this out of love to you because I have been baptized under Father, Son, and and Holy Ghost before I knew the truth it wasn’t until I got baptized in Jesus name and got the gift of the holy spirit as it says in acts that I saw true changes in my life.

    As an Proud Apostolic I see that there is a great and major divide throughout the whole body of Christ. I see that we have levels of different forms of Denominations when it comes to the major big names on top of the church buildings. I see that there are different denominations when it comes down to the Penecostal churches, Apostolic, COGIC, etc. Baptist is and once was apart of the Catholic forum. If you really wanna know then we all should be subject to being baptized in the name of those titles that you love so much. (Jesus Christ)

    You see my name is Devin Cheatham, I’m a father and I am a Son and I am alot of other things for example I’m also a husband which a confidont to my wife everyday. I can be all three of these things because that is what I’m known as. Just like God was and is our blank for his I AM. i.e. Moses and the children of Isreal. He was and still is all three of them Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. You gotta be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, not his titles. Who is the Father? who is the Son? and who is the Holy Spirit?

    I have read alot of these remarks and I see that there are some well represented comments to back up the Apostles Doctrine which was personly instructed by the Lord Himself. I see that we as the body of Christ are too divided. We have one part of the body that is getting more circulation then the other but the heart is cold and if we can somhow manage to get all in one accord and magnify God then We as the “Church” can make some damage and set the world on fire for GOD! One can chase 2000 Two can chase 10,000. How can the blind lead the blind unless they fall into a ditch? How can two walk less they agree? it’s time to get the body of Christ Cracking and rocking ready to move and change the world as best we can. We have a mission still and it is up to the body of Christ to share the light upon the world.
