The Bible Apostolic Logo features the golden sun rising from a deep blue morning sky. The Bible as  the one foundation upon which we build and are establishes is marked open by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Great Creator who so loved us  that He became flesh and dwelt among us, then bled and died to pay the debt for our sins. The golden sun arc doubles to represent the open tomb from  which He arose triumphant. The descending dove represents the coming of the Holy Spirit to us and the flame represents the fire and power of the Holy Spirit in the life of every true believer. When asked if we are Fundamentalist, we are more Fundamental than they. Are we Evangelistic? Very! Are we Baptist? We place a higher value on Biblical water baptism than the Baptists. Are we Pentecostal? We definitely believe in the entire of the Acts 2 experience including that the promise of 2:38 and 39 is to all that the Lord our God shall call. Are we Apostolic? Our desire and goal is to preach, teach and practice that exact same Gospel that Jesus Christ and His Original Apostles taught and would still be teaching if here in person, as we prayerfully try to be their faithful representatives.

FIRE!FIRE!! Hey Neighbor! YourHOUSE is on FIRE!!

Fire! Fire!! Neighbor Your House is On Fire!!!

NEW!! Now Available in Pakistani Urdu | Indian Tamil
WHAT kind of neighbor would I be if I saw smoke and flames coming out from the eaves of your house and you seated calmly in front of your television set completely unaware of your danger and I simply yelled from the street, "Fire! Fire! Hey, neighbor, your house is on fire!" as I passed by without stopping?

After all, I didn't start the fire and I'm already running late for work. Why should I concern myself or get involved?

Maybe I know that you have already been warned that you have fire hazards such as frayed electrical cords or papers or cardboard boxes too close to a heater or pennies behind fuses that used to keep blowing all the time, so now you are getting what you deserve — your house is on fire! Since you have already been warned of the hazard, why should I bother to tell you now that the hazard has become real danger to your life as well as your property?

Maybe you have been irritable with me when I tried to tell you of danger before and I don't want to get you upset or angry with me again!

No! If I am any kind of a good neighbor, I will stop — I MUST stop — and pound on your door or ring your doorbell until I get your attention and will compel you to leave the burning house, as well as calling the Fire Department or getting another neighbor to do so. I will also ask you to make sure that no other person is in the burning house.

This is just plain human kindness and responsibility. A person would have to be a very selfish, calloused individual not to even risk his or her own life to try to rescue you.

But friend, I must also warn you as your neighbor that if you have never been born again, have never had the change of nature brought by having become a new creature in Christ Jesus, your spiritual house is on fire. Or at least there is a serious fire hazard and it is just a matter of time until it will blaze up! And, while your earthly house is only a temporary dwelling  place,  your  spiritual one is

forever and ever. You need to correct the problem now. "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation," (2 Corinthians 6:2).

You say that you are a good person and attend church from time to time whenever you feel like it, but like the careless homeowner you do not realize that in God's eyes, "... all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God," (Romans 3:23). And, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6). "The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, (Romans 6:23). "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," (John 3:16-19).

The Bible is God's instruction book for our lives and there those who come to believe that they are sinners must obey the scriptural commands given to the first believers after Jesus Christ's resurrection and ascension back into heaven. That first command was given to those who had already believed and, because of their belief, felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and asked, "...what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37).
To answer this question, the Apostle Peter commanded, "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," (Acts 2:36-39). Later, he declared, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved," (Acts 4:12).

So, my friend, Please heed this warning: Your eternal house is on fire! Please contact a nearby Apostolic church which will baptize you as the Bible teaches that all the Apostles did throughout the Book of Acts*. Make sure your eternal home is safely assured.

Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries, Up Way Publications and Apostolic Internet Seminary are an Establishment of Religion as defined in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America and therefore, since Congress shall make NO law regarding this Establishment of Religion, we are NOT tax exempt under the Internal Revenue Service code. We are not sustained by any denomination, special interest or parent organization. We accept no online or e-mail advertising. Our operations and mission are funded by -- and depend entirely upon -- the voluntary financial support of Real Bible Believing Christians like YOU!  All income is reported as taxable income to the Internal Revenue Service, although expenditures for literature, publications and shipping are always greater than the amount of donations received.

Are we Evangelical? Fundamental? Pentecostal? Apostolic? We claim all of these in the sense of maintaining total Biblical integrity of the things we teach and preach. For this reason, we use the term Bible Apostolic. We seek to be totally correct according to the Bible maintaining careful contextual and cultural understanding as well as known strengths and weaknesses of any given writer who, while inspired by the Holy Spirit, was still forced to communicate using the language, culture and known understandings of his day and place. So we are Bible in the sense that everything we say and do is intended to fully align with solid, indisbutably Bible teaching when understood as the writers and first hearers and readers of the Scriptures would have understood them. So we are Evangelical in efforts to reach the whole world with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are Fundamental in that like the Church of Christ motto, we speak where the Bible speaks and leave the rest alone. We are Pentecostal because we both see the promise as continuing as long as the Lord our God shall call mankind to Himself and we have experienced speaking in tongues and other manifestations of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We are Apostolic in the sense that we are urgently trying to reestablish original New Testament Apostolic teaching, preaching and life.
