The Apostolic Faith Church sprang from the Azusa Revival of 1906 which took place in Los Angeles, California.
Our founder, Florence Crawford, received the infilling of the Holy Spirit at Azusa and in 1908 moved to Portland, Oregon, and established this ministry. Since then, the work has grown to include hundreds of churches on six continents.
Our organization is conservative in nature, following a tradition of Wesleyan holiness practiced by those whom the Holy Spirit descended on at Azusa. We believe the entire Bible is God's infallible Word and uphold the fundamental teachings of New Testament faith.
