The United Pentecostal Church
Judicial Procedure

There are members of the United Pentecostal Church who want to know what can or does happen when a licensed minister is accused of some wrongdoing. Will they maintain their license? Will the matter be kept hidden from church members?

Unless one has access to the UPC Manual, and these are only sold to licensed UPC ministers, church members may be in the dark as to what to expect. Sometimes there are situations where members believe there is a need to report or investigate something that a minister may have done. Other times, they may be concerned about what may happen when a false accusation is brought against a minister by someone with an axe to grind.

Below you will find the judicial procedure that the United Pentecostal Church ministers are to follow in cases such as these. This information is being provided for informational and educational purposes and is from the 2005 Manual. Please note that these are listed in order, so you should start reading with the first and continue in order until the last.
