APOSTOLIC DOCTRINE
 
HISTORY
 
Pentecostals get their name from the Bible events in Acts chapter two. One hundred and twenty of the Lord's disciples had gathered after His resurrection in an upper room to pray and wait for the "promise of the Father". (You can read this story in Acts chapters one and two). When the promise came it was on the Jewish holiday called Pentecost. All one hundred and twenty were "filled with the Holy Ghost" and began to "speak with other tongues" in that upper room. When the revelation of speaking in tongues came to the modern church around 1900, those who accepted the use of speaking in tongues began to call themselves Pentecostals. Apostolics are distinctive from other Pentecostal groups for their belief in One God, tongues as the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, and baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
