Aside from the Bible, which is the basis of their faith, Pentecostals have made testimonial narratives sacred through repetition in order to promote certain doctrines.
Ultimate Reality and Divine Beings
Pentecostals believe in traditional Christian teaching about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and angels. Differences emerge with the Oneness branch's view of the Godhead.
Human Nature and the Purpose of Existence
The biblical story of the "fall of humanity" defines Pentecostal understandings of our separation from God and our need for a mediator.
Suffering and the Problem of Evil
Pentecostals have not developed a complete answer to the complex issues surrounding evil. For Pentecostals, the reality of evil is tangible and can be overcome.
Afterlife and Salvation
Pentecostals fundamentally maintain that one must believe in Jesus to be saved. Heaven is exclusively for believers.
