The Pentecostal name comes from an Event in the Book of Acts
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven
and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what
seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on
each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began
to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
Even though we do not have a big church to fill, we know a great person, Christ, whom we love to talk about.
Our Pentecostal  is a community formed by people from different countries. If you are looking for a church, please consider joining
us in one of our meetings.
Pentecostalism is a renewal movement within Protestant Christianity that places special emphasis on a direct Pentecost,
the Greek name for the Jewish Feast of Weeks. For Christians, this event commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit
upon the followers of Jesus Christ, as described in the second chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.

Pentecostalism adheres to the inerrancy of the Bible and the necessity of accepting Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.
It is distinguished by belief in the baptism in the Holy Spirit that enables a Christian to live a Spirit-filled and empowered life.
Pentecostalism emerged in the early 20th century with baptism and
along with William J. Seymour, a Wesleyan-Holiness preacher, he taught
that this was the third work of grace. The three-year-long Azusa Street
Revival, founded and led by Seymour in Los Angeles, California, resulted
in the spread of Pentecostalism throughout the United States and the rest
of the world as visitors carried the Pentecostal experience back to their
home churches or felt called to the mission field. While virtually all
Pentecostal denominations trace their origins to Azusa Street, the
movement has experienced a variety of divisions and controversies.

We are an independent church, there is no central authority governing
our Pentecostalism but,  we are affiliated with the Eric Michel Ministries
International Assembly of Churches.

Since the 60s, Pentecostalism has increasingly gained acceptance
from other Christian traditions, and Pentecostal beliefs concerning
Spirit baptism and spiritual gifts have been embraced by non-Pentecostal
Christians in Protestant and Catholic churches through the Charismatic
