Apostolic Family Life Center, Inc. is a worldwide fellowship consisting of those who adhere to the apostle’s doctrine in word and practice. The directive for this fellowship is provided by scriptures that emphasize a unity for God’s people. Our Lord Jesus Christ taught,”…that they, all may be as one, even as he and his Father were one”. Apostle Paul proclaimed that”…we should be of one mind, one strength, and no division.”
The history of the Apostolic Pentecostal Church of the 20th century, though glorious; sadly reveals that many contentions and strifes have crept in among the brethren. The AFLCI is attempting to reverse this trend by working to remove the rifts and barriers that men have allowed to happen, bringing division to the Body of Christ and confusion to the world! The prophetic utterance of Jesus, “That the world may know that thou hast sent me,” can only be accomplished through unity; certainly not division.
In 2017 Reverend Darrel K. Zehm, the founder and President of the AFLCI, asked for key Apostolic/Pentecostal men and women to come together to pray for the establishment of an Apostolic/Pentecostal fellowship. God planted an Apostolic/Pentecostal church in Beverly Hills, FL through Reverend Darrel K. Zehm and the help of others in February 2017 and the ministry was launched in April 2017.
The headquarters is located at 3 W. Lemon St, Beverly Hills, Florida. Mailing address is Apostolic Family Life Center, Inc, 3 W. Lemon St, Beverly Hills, FL 34465, USA
THE FOUR-FOLD VISION OF THE AFLCI:
1. UNITY: to advance the Apostolic Doctrine, among all Apostolics, regardless of organizational backgrounds. Personal differences must be surrendered in order to submit to the prayer of Jesus Christ, that we become ONE.
2. MOTIVATION OF THE MINISTRY: We must experience and demonstrate Apostolic Power. We must Operate within the Apostolic structure and Government. We must work together and motivate each other. God has methods that can work, and together we can find them and share them.
3. CHALLENGE THE LAITY: There is a wealth of Apostolic men and women of God sitting in our pews. Paul said the five-fold ministry was for the perfecting of the saints. The word “perfecting” means EQUIPPING. We in the ministry are responsible to equip, train and prepare the laity; thus challenging them to be involved in lay ministries.
4. MISSIONS: Reaching the lost both at home and worldwide is the lifeline of the Church, the very reason for the Body of Christ to exist.
We must Reach: Reaching people where they are, Realize: Helping people realize their potential in God and Release: Releasing people into their God-given destiny. In light of the fact that we are Apostolic, following the teaching of the Apostles, “We Must Be One”. Genesis 11:6 needs to take on special revelation to our hearts: “Behold, the people is one…and nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” By working together in harmony with one another, we can impact and change our world for the glory of God!
The truth that Jesus founded and the Apostles taught must be preached throughout the world before the end comes! We must reach people, help them realize what they are in God and release them into what God has given them to do! We invite all true Apostolics everywhere to pray and work together to publish this great message to all mankind throughout the world before the Lord returns!
