The United Pentecostal Church (Phil’s) Inc. is a religious organization under the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) with the vision of bringing the whole gospel to the whole world by the whole church.
The United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) is a Oneness Pentecostal organization with churches, ministers, and members across the globe. With roots anchored firmly in the Bible and a vision for ministering to communities around the world, the UPCI embraces its mission: “the whole gospel to the whole world by the whole church.
The UPCI has been among the fastest-growing church organizations since it was formed in 1945 by the merger of the Pentecostal Church Incorporated and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ. From 521 churches in 1945, the UPCI in the United States and Canada grew to 4,459 churches (including daughter works and preaching points) and 9,413 ministers in 2014. In the same year it reported works in 201 nations outside the U.S. and Canada with 34,491 churches and preaching points, 21,485 licensed ministers, 886 missionaries, and a constituency of 2.4 million. The international fellowship consists of national organizations that are united as the Global Council of the UPCI, which is chaired by the general superintendent of the UPCI. Total constituency is estimated at 3 million.
The UPC Philippines Vision/Mission statement is “to carry the whole gospel to the whole world by the whole church; to establish an effective organized effort; to encourage the opening and establishing of new works; to evangelize the world by every means possible; and to produce and maintain a clean ministry and fellowship.”
The Bible is the fundamental doctrine of this organization, the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope and all instruction for the church must be based upon. Salvation comes along with repentance, baptism in water by immersion for the remission of sins and the speaking of other tongues through the Spirit.
Last February 2007, the United Pentecostal Church (Phil’s) Inc. celebrated it’s 50 years of existence as a legal religious entity here in the Philippines.
