What We Believe
The basic and fundamental doctrine of Apostolic Life is the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:1-4, 37-39). Furthermore, our basic doctrine includes a fundamental belief in the oneness of the Godhead in Christ Jesus.
