I’ve entered a new level of awareness that I’m an independent holiness-Pentecostal; and it is among these types of Christians that is really my most kindred spirit and audience. As I pursue this level of self-discovery, I find a general openness to (1) Lordship Salvation (Wesleyan), (2) Pentecostal Worship in the Presence of God, and (3) Prophecy, Healing, and Deliverance.
