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.
Taking church outside the walls of AFC, individuals involved in the Prison Ministry make sure those who are incarcerated have the opportunity to attend worship services. At these services, attendees are part of a worship experience. Modeled on a traditional worship service, workers in the Prison Ministry provide all the elements of church, including singing, preaching, and altar calls.
The main objective is to share the Acts 2:38 message with the men and women of the prisons. If the incarcerated follow the plan of salvation and build a relationship with Jesus Christ, the chains that are on their lives-the ones that bind them in an emotional and spiritual prison-will be broken, and they will be free to start a new life, no longer bound in their mind and soul.
Through these services, those ministering in the prisons work to bring eternal hope to the incarcerated through the preaching and teaching of the Bible. Volunteers are committed to the inmates at their respective facilities. Prayer, fasting, and a willingness to "go" enable those who are part of the Prison Ministry to take a message of salvation and hope to incarcerated men and women and impact their eternal destiny.
