Apostolic Faith Church

Apostolic Faith Church is known as the first apostolic church in the state of Michigan. 

It was B.M. David who brought the apostolic message here to Grand Rapids, establishing the Apostolic Faith Church in 1911 where he preached and taught this soul-cleansing message to all. After
 hearing the gospel message at the Persian Pentecostal Mission in Chicago, pastored by Bro. Andrew Urshan; Bro. Baba M. David was water baptized in the name of Jesus, and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in other tongues. In 1914 Elder G. T. Haywood held revival services at this newly formed church. His subject was Jesus Name Baptism and the Oneness of God. As he taught from his charts, the presence and power of God fell, and Elder Haywood confirmed the Acts 2:38 message to this newly formed congregation. 

Since the Day of Pentecost, the apostolic message has been a life-changing beacon of truth to a lost and dying world. And in it's first hundred years, the Apostolic Faith Church has touched thousands of lives and branched into several other apostolic churches; here in Grand Rapids and around the world. Our heritage is strong, even to the Day of Pentecost. This very same Holy Ghost being poured out today, is just as powerful and just as necessary as it was back then.

Come and experience this Soul-Cleansing, One-God, Apostolic message with us.
