Rev, Lance Appleton Passed Away

Preacher, singer/songwriter Lance Appleton has finished his course and transitioned to his eternal reward.

I remember his ministry as a young man and sang several of his songs. Probably his most famous song was "I'm a one God, Apostolic, tongue talking, holy-roller, born again believer in the liberating power of Jesus name!" And quite an incredible musician as well (piano and harmonica.)

Visitation for Bro. Lance Appleton Friday 5-8 pm the funeral will be 11 am Sat all at the church.

Church address is:
Columbia UPC
211 Benton St.
Columbia, MO 65203
573-442-4121

Re: Rev, Lance Appleton Passed Away

I met him years ago and found him to be very inspirational-- both he and his son.

Hate to hear this. I remember Lance from my young days in the UPC.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

I never knew Lance Appleton, but am certainly familiar with the song he wrote. Will pray for comfort for the family.

Came to our church many times. He could really connect with the youth. He always had that new convert excitement.

I remember that about him too.

"When I get older, don't let me get colder."

Some of the lyrics to one of his songs. I have a couple of his cd's.
