Dallas First Church, established in 1946, was the First United Pentecostal Church in Dallas. We have a rich history surrounded by many dedicated men and women who have given themselves to build a place where all people are welcomed to worship. We are affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International.
We're made up of a blend of new and established Christians, all at different places in their individual
relationships with Jesus. We are a multi-cultural people from all walks of life and socio economic
backgrounds, but most importantly we are people who desire to know more of God.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. Deuteronomy 6:4, Ephesians 4:4-6 Colossians 2:9, 1 Timothy 3:16
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. 2 Timothy 3:15-17
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:23-25, 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9
Repentance removes the barrier that sin erected. It is the first act of faith where we recognize our sin, confess it to God, and willfully
decide to forsake it. If we desire to receive the Spirit of God in our lives, we must live a repentant life. Matthew 4:17
THE HOLY SPIRIT
Jesus promised the Spirit to those who believe. John 7:38-39, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:5
Speaking in tongues is the initial sign of receiving the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:4, Acts 2:33, Acts 10:45-46, Acts 19:6
God promised His Spirit to all who ask, believe, and obey His Word. Luke 11:13, John 7:38-39, Acts 5:32
Baptism was taught by Jesus as part of the new birth experience. John 3:5, Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16
Baptism is for the remission of sins. It must done by immersion in water, in the name of Jesus Christ. Acts 2:38
