The Late Founder Bishop E. F. Morris & Evangelist O. B. Morris (Nana)
On June 7th 1934, many independent churches and organized movements, being represented by their Bishops and Pastors of the Pentecostal faith, assembled in a general council to contrive a plan and system by which the Pentecostal Churches may become closer together; manifest a recognized relationship before the world and have fellowship one with another regardless of name, movement or church. So long as fundamental principles of their doctrines were the same, minor differences would not sever their fellowship.
So it pleased God to suffer them (us) to organize the International Federation of Pentecostal Churches. Only excepting the churches and movements with their Bishops, Elders and Evangelist that believe in and teach the Trinity, Godhead, Salvation, Sanctification, Baptism by Immersion(In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost) and Baptism of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2: 4) Adverse to Spiritualism, etc. Membership in the Federation is obtained by virtue of a certificate of the International Federatioco-operation and fidelity to the Federation.
The Federation had only one appointed officer that was Corresponding Secretary by whom all certificates were signed and sealed granting admission into the Federation. But it was to be well understood by all that this Federation did not put anyone over you, your work, nor interfere with your leadership, manner of government, name, property or any other such thing. It only meant that we join ourselves together by pledging our full fellowship to one another, help each other and feel related to each other. Where-so-ever one of the churches, which belonged to the Federation, the rest of the Federated Churches could feel free to say they are a member of one of our churches. Any information could be obtained by writing the Corresponding Secretary. An invitation to all the Pentecostal Churches is heartily extended.
