Core Beliefs: "As its distinctive contribution to contemporary Christianity, this church has attempted to preserve the Wesleyan tradition, while perpetuating the Pentecostal tradition."

"The fundamental faith of the church is that God’s power to redeem man and society is resident in Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, who sent the Holy Spirit into the world as the Agent of salvation. It is this faith-that God’s power is directly available to everyone to save, cleanse, empower, and heal-that gave the Pentecostal Holiness Church its birth."

Short History:  Three Holiness denominations founded in the South and Midwest in the 1890s experienced a Pentecostal revival in the early 1900s and merged between 1911 and 1915. 

Local Churches:  Use the Church Finder to find the regional network that your state belongs in.  You have to visit that network's website to find congregations.  Some regions do not have websites, or do not list member congregations on the website.  It was not possible to determine which Pentecostal Holiness churches in Louisville are affiliated with the IPHC.
