|Statement Of Faith
|We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, giving a true
history of the creation of heaven, earth, and humanity and containing a
correct prophecy of the ages to come. We believe that there is only one
God--the Creator of heaven and earth, and of all living things. He has
revealed Himself to the world as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Salvation is the deliverance from all sin and unrighteousness through the
blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that salvation consists of the repentance of
sin, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and
the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. We
are commanded to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.
We must present ourselves as holy unto God, and separate ourselves from all
We believe that in Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
Therefore, Jesus, in his humanity, was man; and in His deity, was and is God.
He is the only mediater between God and man. We also believe that Jesus
Christ is coming back to rapture unto Himself a holy people who have
accepted redemption through His blood by water baptism and the in-filing of
the Holy Ghost, and who are found faithful when He comes.

| Founders: Bishop H. Stacey II & Mother Billie J. Stacey
In 1999 Bishop Stacey assumed the mantle of leadership as the Founding
Presiding Prelate of the Apostolic Pentecostal Fellowship of Church, Inc. and
and progressive movement for the winning of souls to the Kingdom. He
served in that capacity until his death. His integrity and commitment to
biblical principles inspired others to follow and support him.
It was just the other day that our beloved Presiding Bishop looked beyond the
gates of heaven and beheld the light of his Lord's countenance, as he
beckoned him to cross the river of life and fall into his loving arms in rest.
This he did, and laid down his sword and shield by the river side to study war
no more. His book is now closed and his story ended.
Sleep Bishop, take your rest. We will see you in the morning!!
