Denominational Apostolic Pentecostals

Denominational (or organizational perhaps, depending on your lingo preference) Apostolic Pentecostals are, at least to me, those aligned with established Oneness organizations, such as the UPC, the ALJC, the PAW, etc.

They don't seem to be too prominent in my area. Most Apostolic churches close to me are independent, but there are cases where a "head" or "mother" church sends out ministers to plant other churches elsewhere.

How prominent are the organizations in your area?

Mostly UPC here. Although there are a couple WPF, I believe one or two ALJC churches, a few PAW and one Shield of Faith church here in my area.

In my area, I know of only one PAW church. I can name maybe two UPC ones. There's one ALJC at least three hours away from me. I'm not aware of any churches affiliated with WPF, but I know some missionaries that are.

Mostly self-operating congregations, however, in my neck of the woods.

AAFCJ, as in the predominantly Hispanic denomination, correct?

I don't believe I know of any of those churches. I'm sure the missionaries my church supports has some affiliation with them, naturally those frequenting Spanish-speaking areas.

I do know of some Spanish Pentecostals from Alabama. They don't use the term Apostolic, at least not that I'm aware, and they are not aligned with any organization. I see them annually at a rather big (for the area) revival bringing together a diverse group of loosely linked Pentecostal assemblies, all with varying beliefs, convictions, standards, and lifestyle restrictions. It's usually a good gathering, and they're just one of the many churches represented there.

Re: Denominational Apostolic Pentecostals

UPCI are located in the bigger areas south of me. I believe one WPF church in the area of the other UPCI churches. The church I Pastor is independent, and the church’s in our fellowship are independent. We have fellowship with Spanish churches as well.

Re: Denominational Apostolic Pentecostals

We have a little of everything in our area...but very few of what I would consider “strong”. Our church is independent and the majority of the churches we fellowship are independent. A few are WPF.

What makes your church strong and theirs not?
