Here’s a little bit about being Pentecostal. No we don’t handle snakes. I don’t know where that horrible stereotype came from, and no we’re not Amish. 

The word “Pentecost” or “pentecostal” came from the book of Acts in the Bible. 

Acts 2:1-4 KJV

[1] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. [2] And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. [3] And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. [4] And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

So, us Pentecostals believe the plan of salvation is in Acts 2:38. Here’s why: 

Acts 2:37-39 KJV

[37] Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? [38] Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. [39] For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Peter is asked “What shall we do?” He responds, Repent, be baptized in Jesus name, Receive Holy Ghost! 

John 3:5 also says:

 John 3:5 KJV

[5] Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

I know John 3:16. If you read it closely, it says SHOULD not perish. Just because you believe doesn’t mean your saved. 

We believe you in baptism in Jesus Name. Acts 2:38 says is clearly. I know, Matthew says in father son and Holy Ghost, but look at this scripture: 

Acts 1:5 KJV

[5] For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

So let me explain in another way. Say your name is Bob. Okay Bob, your a father, a son, a nephew, an uncle, a brother, and a friend. What if instead of calling you Bob, I said “Hey Father, Son, Friend, Nephew.”? That’s your titles, not your name. 
So. Us Pentecostal Women, do not cut out hair. Here’s why:

1 Corinthians 11:5-6 KJV

[5] But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

 [6] For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

1 Corinthians 11:10 KJV

[10] For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

1 Corinthians 11:15 KJV

[15] But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

So…… That’s why we believe women should not cut their hair. 

Now we believe men should not have long hair and should cut it. Here’s why:

1 Corinthians 11:4 KJV

[4] Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

1 Corinthians 11:7 KJV

[7] For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

1 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

So you might think of “covering” as a cloth around hair. No! It says in

1 Corinthians 11:15 KJV

[15] But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

Your hair is your covering. 
Next! We don’t believe anybody should wear make up or jewelry. Here’s the scriptures as to why:

1 Timothy 2:9 KJV

[9] In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

1 Peter 3:3 KJV

[3] Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

There is lots of other scriptures! 😋

Think of makeup like this: What if you gave me a painting you painted, and I told you it was ugly and began to paint all over it. Then I said, “there now it’s beautiful” that’s what your doing to God. He made you beautiful. Don’t insult him.  

Btw (not saying anybody is) but back then, only whores and prostitutes whore makeup, and jewlery. 

Jewelry: before the devil was cast down, he was a beautiful angel, and he wore all these beautiful jewls. Why would you want to wear what he wore? 
We do not believe women should wear pants: 

Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV

[5] The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

It’s simple. How do you know which one to go to? 

We believe in modesty. We don’t wear short clothes or tight, revealing clothes. Ask yourself this. ” Would I wear that infront of Jesus?” Keep in mind he already sees you. 
We do not support homosexuality. Now don’t scream Judge! She’s judging me! I’m not. You all say your beliefs and here’s mine. We don’t support it. 

 Leviticus 18:22 KJV
[22] Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Now God doesn’t make abominations, so they are not born that way. 

Any questions feel free to ask! Have a blessed day!!
