The Apostolic Faith work has grown steadily since its founding, and over the years has established branch churches in various areas of the United States. All of these churches are under the leadership of the Portland headquarters and are independent of any other religious group. Their distinguishing feature is that they hold to the Bible doctrines as originally taught by the Azusa ministry in 1906 at the time of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The Pentecostal message spread, and soon branch churches were established.
Not only are all Apostolic Faith branches one in doctrine, but they are also one in purpose and in spirit with the headquarters church. The believers who form the organization all have been born again, and as such, they enjoy fellowship as brethren in the Lord. Many representatives from branch churches attend the annual summer conventions, studying the truths of God’s Word together with those of the headquarters congregation. These annual events have strengthened the warm and supportive bond that exists between the headquarters church and its affiliate churches.
