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 79th year of ministry, we will continue to pursue the destiny that our Lord had in mind when He established this church.

God is "Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:" (Eph. 1:21). He is beyond all other gods, persons or power. God has intended that we would not only know this, but experience the "beyonds" of God; i.e. - His love that "passes knowledge" (Eph. 3:19), the power of His Name which is "above every name" (Philip. 2:9), the miraculous "greater works" (Jn. 14:12), and many other experiences!
Then God wants His church to go beyond in evangelism - "into the uttermost parts" (Acts 1:8) and into "the regions beyond" (2 Cor. 10:16). We accept this challenge geographically and also in personal evangelism, i.e. to do more, go beyond what we have ever done in loving and reaching for people. God wants to take others spiritually beyond what they have ever experienced previously; our witness can help make this a reality!
The God who is beyond - wants us to experience the beyond that He has destined for us. "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all (beyond) that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us," (Eph. 3:20).
