Church History

       The United Pentecostal Church in Dumas Texas was established over 80 years ago. It was originally started as a Pentecostal Assembly of Jesus Christ (PAJC) church in the 1930s. The PAJC merged with the Pentecostal Church International in 1945 and formed the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI). Both PAJC and UPCI are oneness organizations that preach the truth of God in Christ (John 10:30, II Corinthians 5:19, Colossians 2:8-10 and I Timothy 3:16).


       The United Pentecostal Church in Dumas formally became affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) on March 17, 1950. Howard Goss, a well recognized pioneer minister in the Oneness movement and the first General Superintendent of the UPCI, signed this church’s affiliation document along with then General Secretary, Stanley Chambers. This affiliation has remained strong for the last 65 years.




       Presently, the history of this church is still being collected and organized and we hope to be able to expand this page as more information is made available.
