What We Believe

Apostolic is NOT a denomination… it’s a new birth experience!

The people referred to as “Apostolic” simply believe and teach all that was taught by the Apostles, and receive all that transpired on the birthday of the church… PENTECOST, 33 A.D.

The Godhead
This church believes that there is only one God. He is the Creator of heaven, earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Ghost in regeneration.
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:” – Deuteronomy 6:4

The Bible

This church believes that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” – II Timothy 3:16

This church follows the original pattern of worship characterized in the Bible…

We Pray Together
Acts 4:24

We Sing With All Our Hearts
Psalms 95:1; Ephesians 5:18-19

We Play Musical Instruments
II Samuel 6:5

We Clap And Lift Our Hands
Psalms 47:1, 134:2; I Timothy 2:8

We Praise God With Loud Voices And Praise His Name In Dance
Psalms 47:1, 149:3; Luke 19:37

Divine Healing
This church anoints with oil and prays for the sick for divine healing.
“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, the shall be forgiven him.” – James 5:14-15

The Plan Of Salvation
This church believes that grace through faith, repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost is the original plan of salvation commanded by Christ and preached by the apostles.

We Baptize In The Name Of Jesus Christ For The Remission Of Sins
“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,  and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” – Acts 2:38
Jesus Name baptism fulfills the command of Christ stated in Matthew 28:19 and in Luke 24:47. (Also see Acts 8:16, 10:48, 19:5, 22:16)

We Believe In Receiving The Infilling Of the Holy Spirit Evidenced By Speaking In Tongues
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” – Acts 2:4
Peter assured, “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” – Acts 2:39
(Also see Acts 9:6, 10:44-46)

We Believe In The Manifestation Of The Gifts Of The Holy Ghost
He minsters to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy, words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healings, helps, and government. Mark 16: 15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11

First Apostolic is a church striving to share the Bible truth of the Lord Jesus Christ inside and outside of our sanctuary’s four walls. No matter your background, no matter your pedigree, your soul matters to Him, and we hope to share His love and life changing message with you!
