New member intro

Hi, I just joined after lurking on and off for about 3 years. I'm a married mother of 4....ages 14 (boy), 12 (girl), 10 (girl), and 15 months (boy). I have only officially been Apostolic for 3 years, but I was always unable to fit into any other church no matter how hard I tried...I was always too different, I wanted to stick to the Bible too much. A relative of mine introduced me to the truth and I felt like I had finally found home!

Due to transportation issues and being way out in the country we have been unable to attend church for several months and we miss it terribly.

From reading over some threads I gather that I am probably a little more strict than many of you, but I hope to find a place for fellowship here anyway. Just to let you know what you're dealing with I'm going to put it all on the table. I understand that there are some issues that we all have to decide between ourselves and the Lord but anyway here goes....

I believe in Acts 2:38 salvation. I believe in modesty...calf to ankle-length dresses/skirts, 3/4 length sleeves, no shorts for men. I believe in keeping men clean-shaven. I believe in women letting their hair grow as long as God allows it to be. I believe in homeschooling because we should train our children in the way they should go...not leave them in the hands of a worldly stranger for most of their waking hours. I do not believe in jewelry, make-up, excessive hair styling just for vanity's sake, and in fact I've gotten to the point where gold buttons on a blouse just feel wrong. I do not believe tv is a healthy thing for us spiritually...there may be some exceptions but for the most part it's just evil. I do not believe in celebrating any holiday except thanksgiving. The rest all have pagan devilish roots. I only read the KJV because it's the only one without a copyright saying that a human owns it. I do not even believe in keeping crosses or angels or drawings of a so-called Jesus in my home...they're too easily turned into idols.
I do not want just a relationship with God....the word relationship isn't even in the Bible. I want a WALK with God like Enoch had.
I DO believe that Jesus is Lord...it's all in HIM. I do love to have fun in a way that God could smile at.

Now, do you see why I can't fit into just any old place lol?

Have a good night!
