A NECF Reply

Wednesday, September 28, 2005

If you follow my previous entry, you will notice I discovered several interesting facts (from the article Ministers Appreciation Month - October), and I wrote an email in response to NECF, under the motivation by miss phui.


To whom it may concern,

I came across this article (http://www.necf.org.my/eventsmaster.cfm?&menuid=13&action=viewevent&retrieveid=109 ) about Ministers Appreciation Month (October), which was a summary taken from an article originated from World Network Prayer of United Pentecostal Church International, and I have a few questions regarding this article, and will be glad if NECF could assist me in giving me answers.

I would appreciate if NECF could explain to me on the relation between NECF and UPCI, and NECF's stand about UPCI.

According to my understanding, UPCI does not believe in Trinity, they only believe that Holy Father, Holy Son and Holy Spirit are just representation/manifestation of Jesus Christ himself, alone. I was told too that only people who are baptize in the name of Jesus Christ will be saved (Acts 2:38), and not in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, which was mentioned in Matthew 29:18-19.

If NECF does not agree with such teaching, my next question would be, would you use any articles from such parties? if yes, why?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.


Truly appreciated the prompt reply from NECF.


Dear Bro. Lau,
Thank you for your e-mail to NECF dated Sept 21.
I am replying on behalf of Ann Low our Executive Secretary in charge of Prayer. She was the one who posted the article on the NECF website but she's not around at the moment (she called to ask me to reply on her behalf). Ann was not fully aware of the wrong teachings of the United Pentecostal Church. She just thought they had a good article and so she summarized it for us.
Of course NECF believes in the Holy Trinity in the orthodox way!
Thank you for being alert. We shall try to be more careful next time. We also regret all inconveniences caused.
Thank you once again.

As far as I know, Latter Rain is not heretical... (though there are worrying tendencies towards emotionalism, but ain't tat true for most of our churches?)

It's the usual Pentecostal 'five fold ministry' restoration, endtime revival movement popularized by Branham, Rick Joyner, C. Peter Wagner, Paul Cain, Cindy Jacobs etc.

Nothing alarming to my knowledge, but again, I wont recommend too heartily their books to my CG friends :) Wagner and Jacobs are a bit more sane so there may be stg redemptive, but the rest, unless they cowrite w RT Kendall, well...

there are better reads, ar hehehe
