Welcome to Lively Stone Tabernacle, a United Pentecostal Church that features a friendly atmosphere, great worship, annointed preaching and relevent minitries that target different groups. Children, young people, ladies, married couples, singles and senior adults.
Pentecostals get their name from the Bible events in Acts chapter two. One hundred and twenty of the Lord’s disciples had gathered after His resurrection in an upper room to pray and wait for the ‘promise of the Father.’ (You can read this story in the Book of Acts, chapters one and two). When the promise came it was on the Jewish holy day called Pentecost. All one hundred and twenty were ‘filled with the Holy Ghost’ and began to ‘speak with other tongues’ in that upper room. When the revelation and restoration of speaking in tongues came back to the modern church around 1900, those who received the Biblical evidence of speaking in tongues began to call themselves Pentecostals.
Pentecostals, it seems, can trace their recent roots to events in Topeka, Kansas, and the Azusa Street mission in Los Angeles, California. The outpouring of the Holy Ghost spread across America like wildfire at the turn of the 20th century as believers responded to the supernatural events surrounding the Day of Pentecost in the Book of Acts. “Tongue-talkers” were once a small minority but now make up the greatest percentage of all Christian believers.
Lively Stone Tabernacle was born out of the Apostolic-Pentecostal movement that spread through Missouri last century. Apostolics are distinctive from other Pentecostal groups for their belief in One God, tongues as initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, and water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus.
