ABOUT US . . .
Apostolic Faith Church is a friendly spirit filled congregation located on Rt. 93 in the center of West Hazleton. Our spiritual foundation was laid in the second chapter of the Book of Acts on the day of Pentecost.
We stand firm on the same doctrinal values given to us in scripture. God's first church was a vibrant people which built their lives on righteous principles and solid morals.
WHAT WE BELIEVE . . .
About the Bible:
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (II Timothy 3:15-17).
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16).
About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).
About the Gospel
The gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).
About Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10).
About the Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to rapture His church. In the end the final resurrection and the final judgement will take place. The righteous will inherit the eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
