People from Different Beliefs Coming into Truth

Another discussion.

Do you have any people in your church that came out from different beliefs?
How long did it take them to see the revelation of Jesus Name and the Apostolic way?
How does your church handle people coming in that have been bred in different doctrines?
Do you have a fundamentals-type class or Bible study outlining the basics of Apostolic doctrine?

Just curious.

Re: People from Different Beliefs Coming into Trut

We've had a few different people come into our churches that had been devoted to other doctrines previously.

There was this one elder (whom everyone affectionately called "Elder Sam") that had been raised in Holiness Baptist and Methodist churches. He received the Holy Ghost when he was a young boy, but because of misinterpretation within the churches he attended, he rejected the experience as false. He finally made it to our little country Apostolic church when he was pushing 80 years old. He came for several years before his eyes were opened to the revelation of Jesus Name. He was re-baptized in the name of Jesus and God filled him with the Holy Ghost again. One of my fondest memories of him was hearing the stories of when he went with our pastors' family to a big camp meeting in Arkansas. Elder Sam always wore overalls and a button-up shirt. He drew considerable attention because of his attire at this camp meeting and many people there fell in love with him. Elder Sam's gone on to be with the Lord now. He passed back in 2018, I believe.

We had another elder come to us once after serving as a Southern Baptist deacon for close to 60 years. This elder was in his 80s and he served the Lord in every way that he knew how. He started coming to our church and fell in love with the people and our worship. He eventually married one of the widows in our church (he was a widower himself) and the two of them were as faithful as anybody to our services. I remember when this elder got the Holy Ghost. He was so excited and the anointing was flowing so strong that he had anointing oil on his hands and he laid them on his own head and started praying. He loved my wife and I so very much, and we were both very saddened when he passed away before he was able to come to our wedding.

These are just two of the people we've had come into our churches and see the truth of this Apostolic way after being dedicated to other teachings.
