Jaci Velasquez and her Pentecostal faith : What do we know about it?

Jaci Velasquez

I have not been impressed with the crossover of Jaci Velasquez (or any other artist besides P.O.D.) but I recently came to learn something about here that is very interesting: she proclaims to be Pentecostal. 

In an interview with Evangelist Morris Cerullo, she declared the following statement,

…you’re talking to an Assemblies of God’s girl.

How that actually works out doctrinally could be up to debate. Does this mean that she believes in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit? Praying in tongues? Divine Healing in the atonement? Rapture of the Church. To what degree does she believe these and what doesn’t she believe about them.


One thing that is clear is she has never prayed in tongues in a concert that I have seen or never publically proclaimed healing for the believers. That does not mean she does not have personal conviction on the matters but likely, she is pretty weak on tongues and divine healing.

Jaci Velasquez, Elvis, and Jerry Lee Lewis

Believe it or not, the Assemblies of God have a long history of people who have came up through their ranks but ended up in the world of drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Elvis started in an Assemblies of God church as well.

The same is true with Jerry Lee Lewis (that oddly is the cousin of Jimmy Swaggart). He started in the Assemblies and was rejected just like Elvis was.


The story of Jaci Velasquez is a little different. She was not reject but left on her own because she wanted more money and a bigger platform. If that is greed or not is up for you to determine?

Jaci Velasquez, divorce and ordination

I am not sure where she attends church but she could not ordained into the Assemblies today due to 2005 divorce to Darren Potuck. I am not throwing stones here but just saying with that event in his past, she could not be ordained into the ministries.

Sadly, this is a growing problem within the Christian music industry. It is common to see singers who proclaim the forgiveness of God to be divorced and re-married. It seems there is a culture of broken in the artist guild.


It seems that she is doing good with her second husband and having the official ordination is not the hold grain of Pentecostal faith. I am sure many venues open up to her in and outside the Pentecostal church.

    Peter Hi my name is Jesus Burgos. Its sounds like you’re care more of her denomination that’s not a concern, you’re concern should be does she have a love relationship with Jesus Christ? that the main concern and I assure you she does have a relationship with God sure I love to see her speak in tounges but the main thing should be is does she have a relationship with Jesus Christ, in which is yes she does she may not be perfect but she remains faithful to God.

        Okay but here the thing what about her relationship with Jesus Christ? Why do care so much whether she speaks in tounges? I love to see that but you’re main concern is does she have a relationship with God almighty?

          Salvation is amazing but there is more than just getting saved. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all believers and the initial physical evidence is praying in tongues.

            I know that okay so what if she does pray in tounges? I speak in tounges to but the question you should be asking is what’s the flavor in her Pentecostal faith? Is it a love for Jesus, at least she serves God. The Apostle Paul writes like this if I speak in the tounges of men and angels and not have any love than I am nothing. There will be those that say that Lord Lord have not prophecy in your name? Have we not cast out demons in your name? Jesus will say depart from me I knew you not. It’s always a love relationship with God. That the central to her Pentecostal faith, not speaking in tounges. Only God knows, maybe She does speak in tounges.
