Somewhat Newly Apostolic

Hello. I just wanted to introduce myself. I not to long ago became apart of the apostolic faith. I was born and raised in the church but was somewhat different from apostolic. I am currently stationed in Korea and am struggling to stay true. So I guess I joined this forum to seek encouragement and for guidance to help me along this journey while away...

Re: Somewhat Newly Apostolic

Hi! Great mix here, I look forward to your input! Ps, I've only been here about a month, former Baptist, still not quite sure what "Apostolic" means, if there is an official def...beyond the intuitive? So, just by way of intro (they even let Catholics post here : )

The greatest thing I hope you learn from everyone here is. . . . seek out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Re: Somewhat Newly Apostolic

Keep your mind open. Don't stab something down you hear just because you never heard it before. And be encouraged! You're living for the Lord, what can come against you?

Re: Somewhat Newly Apostolic

Apostolic ... meaning doctrine of the Apostles. You can read in the gospes many times that Jesus called His Apostles in private, and expounded to them the scriptures. John 14:22 "Judas (not Iscariot) Ask Jesus, why manifest yourself to us, and not the word?"...Apostolic doctrine, is what Jesus taught the Apostles. I"ve known Apostolic since 1981, but became a backslider because of "loving this present world"...Glad that God had mercy on me, and brought me back. I'm still learning the true meaning of Repentance, Baptism in Jesus name, and the power of the Holy Ghost with evidence in speaking in tongues. Also, "No man cometh unto the Father but by Me'...so much to learn. God's word is more important than my natural food.
