THE CHURCH, God’s Church, was established in 33 A.D. on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2). The purpose and focus of that early church was to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and thereby bring as many as would accept it into a relationship with Him through repentance, water baptism in Jesus’ Name, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
WE, THE PENTECOSTALS, are a part of that Church in these latter days, and therefore our primary purpose and focus remains the same.
THE PURPOSE of The Pentecostals of Orange Park is first and foremost to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those in our community who have never been baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ or filled with God’s Spirit. Our purpose is to lead those who will into a greater dimension of relationship with God through regular gatherings of sincere worship, with preaching and teaching that deals with life’s issues. Our purpose is to reach and teach children and youth and train them to become champions for God. Our purpose is to impact our community by changing lives. Our purpose is to impact our world by sending missionaries to other countries.
THE CHURCH is for every culture, every race, and every age. It’s for the poor, the rich, the educated, and the uneducated. Our purpose is to reach them.
THE PENTECOSTALS of Orange Park exists to bring salvation to the sinner, healing to the hurting, and deliverance to those who are bound.
