We are affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI), which has its headquarters in St. Louis, MO.
When you enter our front doors, you will be greeted warmly, finding a friendly body of people eager to help. You will hear joyous, spirit filled, evangelistic music and see a body of believers worshipping Jesus just as they did in the Bible.
As a Bible Fundamentalist church, our goal is to create a place where everyone can come to know Jesus as his or her Lord and Savior. We teach our very young (pre-school ages) to adults during all of our three robust services. The whole family will find a special place at Apostolic Faith Church.
We are so glad you have visited our site and look forward to meeting you in the very near future.
1. The gift of "divers kinds of tongues" is given during a worship service and is heard above the rest of the congregation. It should be followed by the gift of "interpretation of tongues" 1 Corinthians 14:27. These two gifts are equal to the gift of prophecy and may be expressed by speaking or singing.
2. God chose the sign of speaking in tongues as the evidence that His Holy Spirit has taken up residence within a believer. "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" Acts 2:2-4. This initial utterance continues as a natural way to talk to God in our own prayer and worship life. Tongues spoken to God edifies or builds up the believer as well as gives thanks unto God. 1 Corinthians 14:2, 17.
Everyone can spread the Gospel to those with whom they com in contact, but missionaries have taken the commandment to "go" to the next level. The purpose of world missions is to support all missionaries through a number of activities and services. World missions are a link between AFC and the mission field, working to support the missionaries through financial assistance, encouragement and most of all prayer. AFC is committed to assisting missionaries as they take the gospel message across our country and around the world, through fund raising by the Ladies Dept., Youth Dept. and those members of the congregation who give on a regular basis.
