RAISING UP A PRESENCE-CENTERED, JESUS-FOLLOWING, APOSTOLIC PEOPLE… ESTABLISHING THE CULTURE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH.
BELONG – BE BORN AGAIN – FOLLOW JESUS – BE A WITNESS
IN LITTLE ROCK AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
So we read the Word of God faithfully & live our entire lives based on the Bible, His roadmap & value system for our lives, not this worlds.
So we listen for, receive & obey the voice of Jesus everyday, everywhere.
So we live to seek to live holy, presence-centered lives by remaining separate from the ways of this world. We reject anything that would compromise our standing in His Holy Presence & embrace anything that keeps us IN His Presence.
So we honor & submit to all of God’s people as the sons & daughters of God.
We give cheerfully, serve faithfully, reach continuously.
The Apostolic Church is a Bible-based church, endeavoring to base all of our teaching and our lives on a straight-forward reading of the Scripture and a practical application of biblical principles. As such, we believe…
We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and that it is the only authority for establishing doctrine, faith, hope and instruction for Christian living (II Timothy 3:15-17).
The first and greatest commandment is this: “Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29). We believe this one true God has revealed Himself as our Father in creation, through His Son Jesus Christ in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in regeneration (I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16).
SIN & SALVATION
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through obedient faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, in response to the Gospel (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; I Corinthians 15:1-4)..
The gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. Our response to the Gospel is to identify with His death, burial and resurrection through repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).
The prophet Micah declared, “He has told each of you what is good and what it is the LORD requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8). We believe that Christian living consists of doing what is right, compassionately serving others, and pursuing a relationship with God).
We believe in covenanting with a community of believers through a local church assembly. It is through the ministry of the Church that believers are strengthened in their faith and find opportunity to serve others. When believers gather together for worship, they can expect the presence of the Lord to be there and for the supernatural gifts of the Spirit to minister (Mathew 18:20; Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10).
We believe in the Apostolic lifestyle as declared & demonstrated by Jesus, then modeled to us by His disciples in the Book of Acts. We believe in divine healing, miracles, the Gifts of the Spirit, communion, faithful giving, sacrificial living, the fellowship of the Church, the five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers & more.
We pray for various needs (provision, healing & etc.)e
