What We Believe

 
WE BELIEVE
  • The Holy Bible to be the inspired Word of God.
  • In the oneness of God – that there are three manifestations of the one God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
  • The name by which God is known is Lord Jesus Christ.
  • In the virgin birth, death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • In the necessity of baptism in water in Jesus’ name according to Acts 2:38, and the infilling of the Holy                  Ghost according to Acts 2:4. This constitutes the new birth spoken of by the Lord Jesus Christ in                              (St. John 3:5).
  • In living a holy, consecrated, and sanctified life (Rom 12:1 & 1 Cor 6:19).
  • In the translation of the saints, commonly known as the Rapture (I Thess. 4:13-17).
 
We believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ to his apostles (the four gospels) and the acts of the apostles (the book of Acts) which is: salvation is given only by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that the baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord (Luke 24:46-49) that need to be accompanied by repentance and followed by the evidence of speaking in tongues as God gives utterance (Acts 2:4).
 
OUR VISION   
Is to be the hands, feet and face of God as Jesus was to us, to the people we meet. Pointing the lost to the only True and Living God the Most High. Who thought so much of us He did the impossible, He came to earth. Therefore our desire is to carry out His will on earth by giving an excellent, caring and nurturing fellowship that reaches all.
 
OUR MISSION      
To glorify our God and Savior Jesus Christ, to make true disciples of as many as we can reach. To be a guiding light to those who do not know Jesus and are trying to navigate their way through this dark misguided world. Today and forever being ambassadors for Jesus Christ who are driven by him to empower people with Godly consequences and to show compassion to those who are lost in sin.
 
GOD’S CHOSEN LEADER     
Elder Levi Adams was born and raised in Humnoke, Arkansas. He is 1 of 16 children taught and trained in
the apostolic doctrine. In 1958, Elder Adams was baptized in Jesus name. However, It was in his adult years that he would yield his life to the Lord and build a relationship with Him. In 1968, he married his beautiful wife, Tena Robinson, and they moved to Chicago, IL.
 
Later in 1975, he realized he was tired of running away from the Lord and repented of his sins. He attended Bethel Apostolic Faith Church under the leadership of the late Bishop Odears Wright, Jr. In 1976, at the age of 29 at a prayer service, Elder Adams was baptized in the Holy Ghost and fire and has been running for Jesus ever since.
 
In 1984 the Lord called him into the ministry. He has been preaching and teaching the word of God until this day. He grew in the might of the Lord under the tutelage of The Holy Spirit and his leader Bishop Odears Wright, Jr for 28 years. He has continued to walk with God for over 38 years. The wisdom, knowledge and understanding that God has placed in his life supersedes any and every college degree one can receive. He understands the burdens of life and the struggles that come with financial hardship. Furthermore, he can empathize with the youth; who are overwhelmed by the dangers and temptations of this world. Elder Adams has put his trust in the word of God completely and possesses unwavering faith that God is a keeper and that the bible is true and is the inspired by God.
