Welcome to Apostolic Pentecostal Church!
Apostolic Pentecostal Church is blessed to serve Jesus Christ in the fulfilling of His vision "to seek and to save" (Lk. 19:10). APC was established by the hand of God to fulfill His great purpose. As we enter our 80th year of ministry, we will continue to pursue the destiny that our Lord had in mind when He established this church.
Our APC theme for 2015 is - "By His Spirit". Zechariah 4:6 declares "Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts." In 2015 we are saying what the Lord said to Zechariah - we must have His Holy Spirit!
While there is a temptation to live life, and even endeavor to be a church, by our own means and power; we must determine it is "not by might or power - but By His Spirit". "By His Spirit" and only "By His Spirit" can we live life, be His Church, have the New Birth relationship, and accomplish His work and will. Corrie Ten Boom said "Trying to do the Lord's work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work." His Church is a Spirit filled and empowered Church. APC, we will be a Spirit filled, Spirit empowered Church!
Isaiah and Jesus both proclaimed that our year can be blessed by His Spirit; (Luke 4:18-19) "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, ... to preach the acceptable year of the Lord." i.e. By His Spirit the time of God's favor has come - this is God's year to act! Amen - and "By His Spirit" let it be so!
