And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance... ...And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy; Acts 2:1-4, 12-18
The ONE Church is a Spirit-filled church embracing the truths of the Pentecostal movement, including the basic tenets of the baptism with the Holy Ghost, Divine Healing, Deliverence from demonic forces, and the Gifts of The Holy Spirit. Our worship is joyful and expressive, as the Word of God calls for such worship. All worship ought always to be inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. We believe in worshipping both in spirit and in truth. The gifts of the Spirit are in full operation within this fellowship. The fundamental rule for all our services is contained within the Biblical admonishment of the Apostle Paul to the church at Corinth...
"Let all things be done decently and in order." - I Corinthians 14:40
Affirmation (Saying "Amen" "Praise the Lord" or "Hallelujah" (etc)
Weeping - Laughing - Marching - Joining Hands
Leaping - Dancing - Speaking with other tongues (other languages)
Laying on of hands - Anointing with oil - Prophecy
Tongues & Interpretation - Joyfull Expressions
Because we believe that the Spirit of the Lord directs every service, many of these things may or may not occur regularly. Any attempt by worshippers to make the more deonsstrative things take place is discouraged, as doing so without an unction and inspiration from the Spirit of God is fleshly and carnal. All true worship is inspired by the Holy Spirit of God and is an expression of one's spirit and not merely their flesh. Expressions born of our fleshly attempts at worship are referred to by the Word of God as praise. Praise is fine, but what God really seeks is true, spirit born WORSHIP.
Pentecostal worship is spontaneous and exuberant, during which believers clap, shout, raise their hands and sometimes dance, leap, run, or jump in spontaneous worship to God. We believe that the supernatural gifts of the Spirit, spoken of in Paul's epistle (letter) to the first century church at Corinth, are also present in the modern-day church. These gifts often, though not always, are manifested during times of worship. We recognize nine spiritual gifts, which are listed in 1 Corinthians 12: 8-10: "To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues."
