The United Pentecostal Church International is a Christian religion. Some Pentecostal Protestant beliefs differ from those of other Christian denominations, with the most important involving the rejection of the idea of Trinity. The Trinity is the belief that God is comprised of three distinct beings who exist in co-exist as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Here are five beliefs that set Pentecostals apart from other Christians: 1. Pentecostal followers do not believe in Trinity, the idea that there are three distinct persons within one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The concept of the Trinity is central to most Christian denominations and faith groups, but not all. Instead, Pentecostal Protestant followers believe in the oneness of God, manifested as Jehovah in the Old Testament, Jesus Christ. This doctrine is called "Oneness of God" or "Jesus Only." 2. The Pentecostal Protestant faith includes the belief in faith or divine healing. They believe medicine and doctors play an important role in staying healthy, but that God is the ultimate source for all healing. Many other Christian denominations do not believe in, or practice, divine healing. 3. Pentecostal women are to practice modesty. Modesty in appearance requires women avoid wearing pants, avoid wearing jewelry and makeup, and not cut their hair. Hemlines of dresses should be below the knee while sleeves should reach past the elbow. Women should not swim with men. Pentecostal men should practice modesty with hair that does not cover the tops of their ears or reach their shirt collar. Both men and women should avoid movies, sports, and dancing. Such beliefs are not common in other Christian denominations. Latest News Update 4. Baptism in the Holy Spirit is evident when a Pentecostal Protestant begins miraculously speaking in a language unknown to the speaker. The ability to speak in tongues is not essential for salvation for Pentecostal followers, but some Christian denominations teach that speaking in tongues is experienced by everyone who has been saved. Many Pentecostal denominations believe in three types of speaking in tongues: that this is a supernatural outpouring and a sign to unbelievers; that speaking in tongues is for the strengthening of the church; and tongues is a private prayer language. 5. Pentecostal followers participate in foot washing while other Christian denominations do not. Foot washing is a ritual like Baptism and communion, and some Pentecostal churches hold an annual foot washing service on New Year's Eve.
