BE THE LIGHT
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick;
and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." 
Matthew 5:14-16

We are a church for everyone. 

Here we find strength, hope, and safety. 

Here we find Jesus.  Everyone is invited,

everyone is welcome.

NEW TO APOSTOLIC FAITH CHURCH

New to Apostolic Faith Church? You can expect great things to happen in your life, so let’s get acquainted. We believe in finding a connection point for everyone. How does this happen?

 

Attend the Sunday worship service. Beginning at 10:00AM located at Apostolic Faith Church, 14002 Glenkirk Road, Gainesville, you will enjoy an anointed time of praise, worship, and a relevant message from God’s Word for your life.  Each Sunday morning we offer a nursery and classes for all ages.

Attend a mid-week worship service on Wednesday at 7:30 PM, located at 14002 Glenkirk Road, Gainesville. This service focuses on the teaching of God’s Word and usually lasts until 8:30 PM.  During the Fall and Spring semesters there are classes for your students to attend as well.   


Request a personal home Bible study. This is a study, directly from the Word of God, that can be taught in your own home. Sometimes, we are intimidated by the Bible because the language and customs are different than our own. This is a great way to sit down and go through the Bible at your own pace. For more information, contact Pastor Ferguson.

OUR BELIEFS

ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant and inspired Word of God.  “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (II Timothy 3:16)

ABOUT THE ONE TRUE GOD
There is one God—He is eternal, He is holy, He has infinite power, and He possesses absolute and indivisible deity.  This one true God has revealed Himself as the Father in creation, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit by indwelling.

ABOUT THE GOSPEL
Simply put, the Gospel is the Good News.  In a dark and tumultuous world, the Gospel is the good news of God’s light, His peace and His grace. We believe in the Gospel.

ABOUT HUMANITY
At creation, mankind was innocent and pure.  Through the sin of disobedience, Adam and Eve fell from that innocent state and introduced sin into the human race. 

ABOUT SIN AND SALVATION
Everyone on earth was born into sin, and has sinned; therefore, everyone on earth is in need of salvation. (Romans 3:23-25, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9)

Salvation is attained not through our own merit, but by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  We are made partakers of this salvation through obedience to the Scriptures by repenting of our sins, by being baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and by receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.  We are baptized by this one Spirit into the Body of Christ. (Romans 6:1-6, Acts 2:38, I Corinthians 12:13, I Peter 3:21)

There is no salvation outside of obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

ABOUT THE CHURCH
The Church is the body of Christ, and Jesus Christ is the head.  

ABOUT CHRISTIAN LIVING
As Christians, we are to love God and love others.  We should live a holy life, both inwardly and outwardly.  Our Christian journey should be a progression as we grow continually closer to Him, resembling Him more and more.

ABOUT MARRIAGE
We believe that marriage is Biblically defined as a sacred covenant between one man and one woman, instituted by God.

ABOUT THE LORD'S SUPPER
We observe the Lord’s Supper in the taking of communion as a church body.  Representative of the body and the blood of the crucified Savior, we partake of unleavened bread and grape juice in remembrance of His perfect sacrifice for us.  

ABOUT THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
The gifts of the Spirit that were on display throughout the New Testament are still active in the church today.  The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to edify and sanctify the church, to demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and to confirm the power of the Gospel.

ABOUT THE FUTURE
As a bride for her groom, we earnestly anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ when the righteous shall be caught away to meet the Lord in the air.  “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
