Tenets of Our Faith

The Bible:
The Bible is the Word of God and its original manuscripts are free from errors and contractions.  It is the one and only infallible, authoritative, and trustworthy rule for faith and life (2 Peter 1:21). The Bible is to be taken as literally as possible except where obviously figurative. Genesis, for example, is literal and Adam and Eve were actual people.
 

God:
He has always been God and was never anything else (Psalms 90:2). He is: Holy (Revelations 4:8); Eternal (Isiah 57:15); Omnipotent (Jeremiah 32:17); Omniscient (1 John 3:20); Light (1 John 1:5); Spirit (John 4:24); Truth (Psalms 117:2); Creator (Isaiah 40:12); to be worshipped (Genesis 24:26); to be served (Matthew 4:10; 1 Corinthians 6:19; Philippians 3:7); to be proclaimed (Matthew 28:19; John 14:15; Acts 1:8).
 

Trinity: 
There is one God in whom are three eternal, distinct, simultaneous persons – the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit. All three are the one God, coeternal, etc., yet there is only one God, not three gods, and not one person who took three modes, office, or forms. (Isaiah 44:6; Genesis 1:26-27; Matthew 3:17; 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
 

Jesus:
Jesus Christ is the Word (God) who became a man. He added human nature to His divine nature. He is both human and divine, and, therefore, has two natures. Yet, He is one person, not two. He is not God and part man. He presently a man, in a glorified body, one person, with two natures where one nature is wholly God and the other wholly man. (Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrew 1:5-13; John 1:1-3). 
Jesus will eternally remain as a man and intercede for us eternally as a high priest after the order of Melchezedek. (Hebrew 6:20).
 

The Virgin Birth: 
Jesus Christ was miraculously conceived and born of the virgin Mary, (Luke 1:42); Mary ceased to be a virgin after the birth of Jesus (Matthew 1:25). 
 

The Resurrection: 
Jesus Christ rose from the dead in the same body He died in after being in the grave for three days. He was raised in a glorified, physical body (still retaining his crucifixion wounds, (John 10:25-28). He ascended bodily into heaven (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15; Luke 24:39). Likewise, we Christians will be raised bodily from the dead and spend eternally with the Lord. 
 

Substitutionary Atonement:  
God the Father so loved us that He sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, Jesus, the Word, became man, bore our sins in His body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24), and died in our place, suffering the consequences of the breaking of the Law (1 John 3:4), which is physical death (Romans 6:23), and spiritual death (Isaiah 53:4-6). He became sin on our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:21). His sacrifice was legal substitution for us (1 John 3:4), and substitutionary since Christ took our punishment (Isaiah 53:4-6), and tasted death for everyone (Hebrew 2:9). As a result, God’s justice was satisfied, Christian believers are released from eternal punishment (1 Peter 3:18).
 

Salvation:     
Salvation is being saved from the righteous judgment of God upon the sinner. Salvation is obtained by grace alone, through faith alone, in the work of Christ alone (John 3:16), and not by our good works (Romans 3:28; Ephesian 2:8-9).
 

Justification by Grace through Faith Alone:  
Justification is being declared legally righteous by God (Philippians 3:9). This justification is received by faith alone in the work of Christ fulfilling the Law in his earthly ministry (1 Peter 2:22), and in his removing of sin by his sacrifice. It is received by faith. Our justification is a gift from God (Romans 3:24), and is received apart from the works of the Law (Romans 3:28). 
 

Rapture:
The event where, upon Jesus’ return, those who have died in Christ and those Christians who are then alive will be physically caught up to the clouds and meet the Lord Jesus in the air. We will then forever be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:16-5:2).
 

The Second Coming:  
Jesus Christ will bodily and visibly return from heaven to earth with great glory and majesty. 
 

Morality: 
Homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, cross dressing, trans-genderism, lying, bearing false witness, adultery, wife-swapping, pornography, fornication, coveting, etc., are all sinful practices, against scriptural revelation, are contrary to proper living, and are not acceptable to the PHG ministry as normal or approved behaviors. Still, we do not hate or persecute those who practice these things, but pray for their deliverance and salvation while we expose their sins and call them to repentance. 
Homosexuals (Gays, Lesbians, Transsexuals), as addressed in the Holy Scriptures is very clear. It is sin. In the Old Testament Scriptures, God declared that those who practiced this sin committed an abomination and were judged worthy of death (Leviticus 20:13). This violation of God’s Word surfaced again in the New Testament Scriptures. Apostle Paul continued to support the truth found in the Old Testament Scriptures by declaring that such practice was detestable, and must not engaged in by believers who are members of this church (Romans 1:24-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9).
 

Marriage:  
Marriage is between one man and one woman where sexual intercourse is to be had only within that bond, between husband and wife alone. Marriage is dissolved upon death.  

Our Pastor

Pastor Quintin W Wingate was born and raised in the city of Detroit, Michigan, the 6th child of 13 siblings born to Elder Charlie and Evangelist Martha Wingate.  He gave his life to Christ at the tender age of 12.  As a young man coming up at Pentecostal House of God he had a passion and burning desire for God’s word and worked in many areas of the church.  He was a Sunday school teacher, A. V. technician, youth minister, choir member, athletic director, usher, youth prayer band and custodian.  God had a plan for the life of this young man.  In September, 1985 he assumed the pastorate of Pentecostal House of God, presently known as, Power Hope and Grace Bible Church, after the death of our founder, Bishop Bernard R. McCrary.

 

One year later in September, 1986, he left his job and committed himself to full time pastoral duties.  He continued to excel in ministry.  In 1988, Pastor Wingate was ordained an Elder by the Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith Association, Inc. and in 1989 he was appointed a District Elder.  While being a faithful servant, his leadership did not go unnoticed.  He was elected as the Assistant Council Chairman for the Michigan State Council P.C.A.F. Inc., 5th Episcopal District.  He also assisted in organizing the Midwest Bible College Institute.  In 2003, Pastor Wingate was elected and ordained a Bishop within the P. C. A. F. Association, Inc.

 

As a pastor of a thriving urban ministry, Pastor Wingate works diligently around the clock preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He is very profound and skillfully trained in teaching and preaching the Bible, and is sought after for speaking engagements all over the United States.  As CEO, he oversees the PHGBC Executive Board of Directors, Ministers Alliance, Board of Deacons, Administrative staff, as well as several others ministries and departments and the PHG Urban Life (community) Center.

 

Pastor Wingate has a genuine love for God, God’s people and community work.  He has been recognized and is the recipient of many local and state awards acknowledging his outstanding leadership, exceptional achievements and community service.  Not only is he an astute student of the Bible, he has earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Studies, a Master’s Degree in Ministry and his Doctorate Degree in Theology.  He has also published his book, A Review of the Apostolic Faith Movement, And Their Key Doctrines:  Are They Biblical?

 

Pastor Wingate is married to the lovely Brenda Fay Wingate.  Brenda is his pride and joy. She also has worked in a variety of areas in the church, the usher board, advertising department, finance department; and is a dynamic Sunday school teacher.  She is diligent and devoted to the work of the Lord; supports and works faithfully by her husband’s side.  They have been married for over 38 years and have 8 beautiful children, Rokita, Raquel, Rachel, Darnell, Darius, Rochelle, Renita and Demarcus.
