The True Apostolic Churches of Jesus Christ Association, Incorporated goes on record that it will support the Apostolic Doctrine and
earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
The True Apostolic Churches of Jesus Christ Association, Incorporated is the continuation of the great revival that began at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost A.D. 33 and is built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ, himself being the chief cornerstone.
Ephesians 2:19, 20. This church has suffered great persecutions and many of her followers have been killed, but it survived. According to the word of our Lord
"the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew
At Various intervals throughout the past
centuries the followers of the Apostolic Faith and Doctrine have become
prominent through great revivals in Great Britain, the United States and Canada.
In the days of Tertullium (A.D. 207) Chrysostom (4th century), Christians of the
13th century, the early Quakers, Wesley, Whitfield and Irving, the gifts and
manifestations of the Apostolic Church were much in evidence as the revival
spirit swept over the country.
The revival broke out in Kansas City (1901) and
moved to Texas, finally it reached Los Angeles, California (1906). From whence
it spread throughout the whole earth entering into nearly every nation,
penetrating the heathren darkness of India, China, Africa and the Isle of the
seas, fulfilling the great command of our Lord, "Go ye into the world
and preach the gospel." St. Matthew 28:18,
19; St. Luke 24: 47-49; Acts 1:4-11. So great was the awaking that in a
few years almost every town of any size there were witnesses to the Pentecostal
outpouring of the Holy Ghost. Luke 24:48 Acts 2:4.
Soon there were places of worship erected, called by names such as Apostolic
Faith Mission, Pentecostal Mission, Apostolic Faith Assembly, Full Gospel
Assembly, Mission Assembly of God, etc.
The True Apostolic Churches of Jesus Christ Association, Incorporated is
willing to defend the gospel, to earnestly-contend for the faith and take the
Bible as our creed, discipline, charter and rules of order.
Always maintain a place of worship for all nations, provide dormitories for the
needy, and freedom of worship for all people under the Apostolic Doctrine.
To unite all people of all races to God by the gospel of His Son. Our Lord Jesus
Christ. To let all men see what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of
God and that we may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God without
rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom we shine
as lights in the world, holding forth the word of life. To give light to them
that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death, to guide their feet into the
way of peace. Titus 2:13, 14; I Peter 2:9; Phillippians
2:15, 16; St. Luke 1:79.
To visit the fatherless and the widow, to lift the fallen, visit the sick,
support the weak, encourage the faint-hearted, comfort the feeble-minded, point
the lost to the way of salvation and encourage all believers to seek a
spirit-filled life. Ephesians 5:18; Acts 19:1-16;
and be ready for the coming of the Lord. James 1:27; I
Thessalonians 4:16; Mark 16:15-18; St. Matthew 25:1-13.
It is our duty as partakers of the Royal
Priesthood, I Peter 2:9 and Revelations 1:6 and 5:10,
to offer supplications, prayers, intercessions and give thanks for all men; for
kings, governors, magistrates, and all that are in authority; that we may lead a
quite and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty. I
Timothy 2:1-4; Romans 13:1-7. To submit ourselves to every ordinance of
man for conscience sake; whether it be to the king, a supreme, or unto
governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evil doers
and for the praise of them that do well. Pay tribute also for they are God's
ministers. Render therefore to all their dues, tribute to whom tribute is due;
custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour; Owe no man
anything, but to love one another, so long as these ordinances do not infringe
upon the liberty of service toward God nor conflict with the word of God.
