I would like to welcome you to the webpage of AFA (Apostolic Faith Assembly).
Our purpose/vision statement of:
“Committed to God, Walking as Family, Changing our World” is more the just words on paper or some form of media.
Committed to God
We believe and strive to put Jesus first in our lives.
We work to show Christ in all we do.
We are Committed to God:
Walking as Family
In the twenty years I have served as the founding pastor, one thing I have heard again and again is that people feel like they are at home at our church.
That is not by accident.
God’s plan for the church is that it would be a family. A place to come home to.
A place where you can be honest, open and yourself. A place where you can feel safe.
And we are that.
Whether you are one of the regulars, or someone here for the first time, we will strive to make you feel at home and safe.
One of the most important things we can promise you here at AFA is that you will feel God's love, and see it in action. We are more than just another church congregation, we are a family. We believe in standing together in all things.
Let's be honest, sometimes life is hard. Many times we get hurt and feel alone.
All of us on our best day are really nothing more than sinners saved by grace. We need God and each other.
We enjoy being with one another. We are not in a mad dash to leave church, instead we want to stay and visit, and more importantly, pray with and for our family that may be in need.
This is a place of family.
Changing our World
Jesus was very emphatic about why he came.
To seek and to save that which was lost.
To bring life and that more abundantly.
To bring healing and wholeness.
To give us eternal life.Whether your need is physical, emotional or spiritual, we are here in the stead of Christ to minister to you in whatever form or fashion is needed.
We offer a wide range of ministries from our church. These include Sunday School for all ages, an active Youth Group, Young Marrieds Group, our Mature Adults Group, Vacation Bible School, Music Ministry, Home Bible Studies, Nursing Home Ministry and many other activities.
We minister based on the needs of our family as well as the needs of those that may not yet be a part of our family.
It is meant for all the world to be saved, and that none should perish.
We embrace and accept that calling and responsibility.
Our earnest desire is to see that we accomplish the will of the one that has loved us so much, Jesus.
We invite you to come be a part of our family; whether you are just visiting the area, or are looking for a Bible based church to call home. We would love to have you come and be with us.
I'm sure you will enjoy our worship and praise filled services, overflowing with what God has done for us.
May I remind you in case you haven't heard it recently, Jesus loves you and we do too!
In Christ's Service,
Pastor Robert A. O'Brian
