Mission and Values

Move Button Move Button

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.

Our Mission

The mission of the Apostolic Faith Church is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We accomplish this as we:


We make prayer the basis of every ministry and encourage communion with God as the way we grow to spiritual maturity in Him.


We emphasize the original Pentecostal doctrines of salvation, sanctification, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, continually striving to develop fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ.


We publish the Gospel through the written word, the spoken word, and through our personal lives, daily looking for opportunities to spread the message, "Ye must be born again."
