Our local St. Louis Apostolic Christian Church is a fundamental Bible believing church that is thankful to be closely affiliated with 90 similar churches across the United States, as well as several additional in Japan and Mexico, and the Rural Gospel Medical Mission in India. Our denomination seeks to instruct and follow the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles as outlined in the Bible.
Locally, we are a church compromised of about 40-60 on a typical Sunday, including 22 members and 25 children. The attendees come from local and surrounding communities, including St. Charles (current location of the church) and Glen Carbon (IL), for weekly worship, teaching, support, and fellowship. Several of the families have come from neighboring and out-of-state congregations in an effort help establish the church. Today, it is made up of a wide range of ages and backgrounds but a common desire to live the Bible and share it with others that would have interest. Being bound together in the love of Christ, we enjoy a closeness and accountability that is helpful in our Spiritual walk of life and we trust would be to any that choose to join us.
The church is served entirely through volunteer efforts including the trustees, the ministry, the Sunday School teachers, and all relief ministries. This has provided for an engaged church and funds available for use in outreach and humanitarian aid locally and abroad. Most of the local attendees are engaged in specific areas of the local church, their communities and/or our church’s national mission efforts in one form or another.
We are thankful to have experienced the love of God in providing Jesus as a covering for our sin. Having experienced such great love, we desire to reflect it to a lost society around us.
