Biblical Foundations: Principles for the Pentecostal Believer by the late Dr. Donald F. Johns explores 13 commonly held Pentecostal beliefs and leads the learner into an understanding of the biblical basis for each. Topics addressed include salvation, water baptism, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit, healing, the Lord's Supper, the role of the Church, and the second coming of Christ. Although each of the 13 studies presented in this book are limited in scope, Johns' insightful presentation will provide a firm foundation for those who wish to gain a theological understanding of doctrines Pentecostal believers embrace.
