Church Van

VanWe are excited to announce that we have purchased our first van to pick up people for church! This is an exciting time at The Apostolics of Abingdon! We are moving forward in revival, evangelism, and church growth.

If you know of anyone who may like to come to church, but they are in need of transportation, please let us know. If you would like to help with this ministry either by donating to its cause and/or being directly involved, we would welcome your participation.

We will be discussing this further during Sunday’s service. We invite you to join us. Service begins at 2:00 P.M. We encourage you to come early for pre-service prayer which begins at 1:30 P.M. #letsgo!

Evangelism Seminar

Rev. Roney BettsWe are looking forward to Rev. Rodney Betts of Durham, NC coming to teach on outreach and evangelism this Friday at 7:00 P.M. Bro. Betts is an effective evangelist and has also assisted Pastor Johnny Godair for many years at First Pentecostal Church in Durham, NC. First Pentecostal Church is a growing, revival minded church. Bro. Betts also has experience as a church planter and pastor, involvement with an effective bus ministry, and many other outreach programs. He is a passionate, energetic, and dynamic speaker. You will be encouraged and motivated by his anointed ministry.

This session is designed to help the church to grow and we encourage all members to attend. This will be an enjoyable time together as we hear from someone who has seen results and can help us to do the same. Bring a note pad and pen to take notes. Business casual attire is sufficient as this will be a relaxed setting. Make plans now to join us for this exciting evening together!

Let’s Go!

IMG_5748Two simple words, but words that are intended to inspire, motivate, initiate, propagate evangelism, revival, and growth. Words that are Biblically inspired from passages like Matt. 28:19 – “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” and also Mark 16:15 – “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

“Let’s” – Let us. Together. Good things happen when we get together for a common cause. A Godly cause. Good things happen (God things happen) when the people have a mind to work.  There’s power in unity.

“Go” – It’s His mandate to the church – It’s us sharing the good news of the gospel. (You don’t even have gospel without “GO.”) “To every creature” – That excludes no one. He would have all men to be saved. He’s not willing that any should perish. Social status is irrelevant. Skin tone is to be a non-issue. Age makes no difference. Everywhere to everybody with the gospel – the good news.

“Let’s go!” – These are words of action. Words that cause the scurrying of the feet, the heart beating, the blood pumping, the adrenalin flowing. Words that move one from their comfort zone. Words that move us from the padded (or non-padded) pew to the paved streets or dirt roads of Abingdon, Bristol (both Bristols), and beyond. It’s to the highways and hedges. There’s no sacred territory. If there’s a lost person, we want them. Hills, hollows, apartment complexes, trailer parks, and subdivisions.

Words that propel us to the knocking of doors, sending of text messages, and making phone calls. These two words should inspire us to peddle church tracts, church cards, and flyers of invitation. We will continue to utilize newspaper advertisement, the internet, and other mediums that could be used to propagate this life changing, soul-saving message.

These two words are to be the mantra; the buzzwords for our assembly in 2017. When we hear them or see them may they awaken us from slumber and motivate us to action. It sets the tone and tenor for The Apostolics of Abingdon. No longer status quo. No longer complacent or idle. Not with eternity in view. Not with the gospel in our hands to give. Not with the judgement looming.

We know too much. God’s been to good. His blessings are too abundant for us not to share. Hell is too hot and eternity is too long. We must act. We must accept His challenge; His charge. The night is far spent. The day is at hand. Let’s work while there’s time. Let’s reach the lost. Let’s do it today. Come on, Let’s go!
