Our Pastor

 

Theology is the study or science of God. The only reason why we are able to have a theology, rather than a mythology, is because of revelation. God has revealed Himself to us through His scriptures, presenting Himself as a caring and loving Lord. He did not create the universe and become an impersonal bystander, but instead desires an intimate relationship with His creation.

The Bible is not a book that we study for the purpose of establishing laws and regulations. The purpose of the Bible is not a rule book, though it provides a method of how to order our life. Its purpose is not to guide us to heaven, though it does offer us this escort. Instead, its purpose is to reveal to us a God willing to have a relationship with His creation. It unveils a Supreme Being, willing to offer a perfect love. In studying the Bible, we seek to know this God who has unfathomably shown Himself to us.

Doctrine is what the whole Bible teaches us today about some particular topic. We of First Pentecostal Church of the Westbank believe in and support the doctrines of the United Pentecostal Church International.
