‘’For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me’’ (Mathew 25:35,36)

Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS), an institution within the Church of Pentecost, is a pro-life organization dedicated to promoting the social ministry of the Church. Every aspect of our work is to demonstrate the love of God in practical terms through the enhancement of the well-being of people and reaching out to them with the salvation offered by our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are resolute in our commitment to the Church of Pentecost and its beliefs, teachings, principles, values and culture.

Below are the tenets of the church of Pentecost:


We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. That the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all-sufficient in its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency. (2 Timothy 3.16, 2 Peter 1.21)

We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, maker of the whole universe; undefinable, but revealed as Triune Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—One in nature, essence, and attributes, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. (Genesis 1.1, Matthew 3.16-17, 2 Corinthians 13.14)

We believe that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;” and are subject to eternal punishment; and need repentance and regeneration. (Genesis 3.1-19, Isaiah 53.6, Romans 3:23, Matthew 13:41-42, Romans 6:23, Acts 2:38, Matthew 4:7, Acts 20:21, John 3:3 and Titus 3:5)

We believe humanity’s need of a Saviour has been met in the person of Christ Jesus, because of His Deity, Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Atoning death, Resurrection and Ascension; His Abiding Intercession and Second coming to judge the living and the dead. (John 8.46, 14.30, Colossians 1.15, 2 Corinthians 5.19, Romans 3.25, Acts 2.36, Philippians 2.9–11, 1 Thessalonians 4.16–17, Revelation 22.20)

We believe all humanity have to repent of and confess their sins before God, and believe on the vicarious death of Christ Jesus before they can be justified before God. We believe in the Sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of Eternal Life to the believer. (Acts 4.25, Romans 5.16, 1 Corinthians 1.30, 1 Thessalonians 4.3)

We believe in the Sacrament of baptism by immersion, as a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of say 13 years (Luke 3.21, Mark 10.16) (Infants and children are not baptised but are dedicated to the Lord), (Luke 2.22–24, 34, Mark 10.16). We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship. (Luke 22.19–20, Matthew 26.21–29, Acts 20.7)

We believe in Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with signs following; and in the operation of the gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers. (1 Corinthians 12.8–11, Mark 16.17, Acts 2.4, Galatians 5.22)

We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God’s people in the atonement. (Isaiah 53.4–5, Matthew 8.7, 17, Mark 16.13, James 5.14–16, Luke 13.10-16) Yet the church is not opposed to soliciting the help of qualified medical practitioners.

We believe in tithing and in the giving of free will offerings towards the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver. (Malachi 3.10, Hebrews 7.1–4, Luke 6.8, Acts 20.35)

We believe in the second coming of Christ and the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved. They that are saved to the resurrection of life—and the unsaved to the resurrection of damnation. (John 5.28–29, Daniel 12.2, Romans 2.7, 6.23, 1 John 1.1–2)

We believe in the institution of marriage as a union established and ordained by God for the lifelong, intimate relationship between a man as husband and a woman as wife, as biologically defined. We believe that God instituted marriage primarily for companionship, and for procreation and the Godly nurture of children, to enable them find the security of love and growth in the heritage of faith (Genesis 2:18; 21-25; Matthew 19:4-6 and 1 Corinthians 7:12)
