The Sanctuary was founded in 1963 by Rev. Harvey Howe, formerly known as The Hudson United Pentecostal Church. Although the name was changed to The Sanctuary in 2012, we remain an Apostolic Pentecostal Church affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International. (UPCI)
Bishop David and Jane Howe welcome you to The Sanctuary
Bishop David Howe, along with his wife Jane have a heart for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ as this is our primary purpose to exist as a church. Since 1982, Bishop and Mrs. Howe have made Hudson, New Hampshire their home, and have faithfully pastored The Sanctuary. Bishop David Howe was first licensed in Ministry in 1975 and Ordained as a minister in the UPCI in 1981.
Within the UPCI, both Bishop David and Jane Howe have served within the NH-VT District, also within the former Central New England District, in various capacities. Bishop Howe was elected to serve as the founding District Superintendent of the NH-VT District in 1996, a position in which he served for a total of 10 years. He has also served as the North American Missions Director and the Special Minister of Comfort to other ministers district-wide. Sis. Jane Howe, while serving faithfully as a pastor’s wife in Hudson, has also served as the NH-VT Ladies’ Ministry Secretary and as a member of the Ladies’ Ministry Committee.
Reaching out further into the local community, Bishop Howe has considered it an honor and privilege to serve as the chaplain for the Hudson Police and Fire Departments since 1985. As such he has been in homes in times of distress and tragedy. Bishop Howe does not take the privilege of ministering to the needs of the community lightly.
Both locally in Hudson, New Hampshire and as far north as Dorchester, New Hampshire (where they also pastor another UPCI-affiliated church, Apostolic Lighthouse), they have followed the leading of God throughout their ministry. As they continue to let God bring The Sanctuary into the future, they have endeavored to keep the motto of the UPCI present in their efforts: the whole gospel, to the whole world, by the whole church.
With New Hampshire as their personal area of this world, they invite you to be a part of The Sanctuary today.
What We Believe
What We Believe
About the Bible
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)
About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
(See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)
About the Gospel
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection).
(See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)
About Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.
(See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)
About the Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.)
