Acts 2:38 - 41
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
2 Peter 1:10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
The Bible tells us to make our calling and election sure.
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
The Bible (God's word) tells us that we need to repent of our sins and sinful actions too.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
The Bible (God's word) tells us also to beware of those claiming to speak for God, but do not. False prophets and false teachers will tell you a different plan of salvation than God's plan.
God desires us all to repent before it is too late. The LORD God Almighty desires us to repent before we are so set in our ways that we will not repent of our sins. There are many different people that will tell you how you can obtain salvation (anything you want to hear), but those false prophets which look and smell like God's messengers are really ravening wolves. Haters of the truth, and haters of those whom preach it. Some of these wolves use a real Bible, while others have gone so far as to produce their own "holy scriptures" which are nothing but half truths or bold faced lies.
Would you like to be standing before God and discover that what you believed was true was in fact a bold faced LIE, and that you were the willing victim of a false teacher whom led you and perhaps your family astray too? The LORD Jesus declares that the way to life eternal is narrow. There are not many different paths, but only one. Eternal life is precious and it is the gift of God if you choose to obey him and not some man claiming to preach the truth.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Bible (God's word) tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. Is it not worth your while to check out things and make sure that what you believe or have been taught is in fact true? Easy believism will not save you, but obeying the Gospel of Jesus Christ which includes Acts 2:38, and making the decision to love the LORD and love our neighbours, and grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ: following peace with all men and holiness can.
Deuteronomy 6:4 & 5
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
The Bible tells us clearly that: That there is only one God and that he is the LORD and that his name is Jesus.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Mark 12:29 & 30
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
2 Peter 1:20 & 21
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The Bible (God's word - the Holy Scriptures) declares that there is only one interpretation of scripture: NOT MANY! There is only one LORD, one faith, and one baptism (Ephesians 4:5).
Real Christianity has the power to CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Because REAL CHRISTIANS
have Jesus Christ the LORD - our great God and Saviour - in us!
Welcome to the
“Apostolic Christian Fellowship”
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Why do we need to study? Because if you do not know what the Bible really teaches - is really saying, then you could fall prey to someone whom hates what the Bible really is teaching. Lots of people go to church, but are they living lives full of purpose? Are they living a changed life?

Mark16:16 - 18 :-
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Why is this? Because REAL CHRISTIANS have obeyed
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
and are 'Born Again' of water and the Spirit, just like Jesus Christ of Nazereth told us to. Real Christians are born from above, just like Jesus Christ of Nazereth said we must be in order to be saved and be with him - the LORD Jesus Christ forever.
REAL CHRISTIANS have the BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE and Jesus Christ the LORD - our great God and Saviour dwells in us. Jesus Christ is my great GOD and Saviour - God manifest in the flesh!
Is he yours?
The BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE must include WATER & SPIRIT.
Why being "born again" is not just believing:
· John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Please notice what else the Bible says about believing:
· James 2:19
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
The devils believe in Jesus, are they born again – will they see the Kingdom of Heaven? No!
Also remember John 3:5.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Where’s the water & spirit here?
Being "Born Again" is not Just Confession:
· Romans 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Please note the example of the Ethiopian Eunuch. He confessed Christ but it was followed by his baptism and was a requirement for his baptism.
Acts 8:29 - 38
Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Being "Born Again" is not Just Calling on Jesus:
· Romans 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
But Jesus also said:
· Matthew 7:21
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
If we take Rom 10:13 out of context it causes what would seem to be a grave contradiction – what is the proper understanding of these verses?
Have you ever heard someone shout the name of Jesus Christ in a moment of anger? Did that save them?
Where or how do we properly call on the Name of the Lord in salvation?
Let’s hear what said in Acts 22:16.
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
The time and place given by the scriptures to call on the name of Jesus Christ in regarding to salvation is in baptism to wash away our sins.
· 1st Peter 3:21
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Many say that we just “Accept Jesus as our saviour” However, an honest and thorough study of the scriptures, will find that there is no scripture anywhere in the Bible which instructs one to simply "accept the Lord" as their personal savior.
Again remember, John 3:5 …Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
Acts 2:41 & 42 :- Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Jesus is the Christ.
Jesus is the Messiah.
Jesus is God.
Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
There is only one God and he is the LORD and his name is Jesus. The God I serve (my God) is the one, true, and only living God - the LORD God Almighty (maker of heaven and earth). Jesus Christ is my great God and Saviour - God manifest in the flesh. God has indeed raised up Jesus Christ from the dead. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
