The Legacy of ACOP
Step Into Our Story
Why is it important to learn the history of the Apostolic Church of Pentecost?
^ Shortcode ^
Have you ever thought about why it is important to study history?
Maybe you have heard the famous quote: “Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it.” However, there is an even more essential reason for studying history. When we learn about the story that gives birth to the present context of our lives, it most often gives us the motivation to move forward with greater clarity and purpose.
Join together with us to study the history of ACOP and take time to remember the God who is always working to bring things together for good.
NOTE: You will need two books for the reading in this course — Our Apostolic Heritage by Robert Lardon, and Streams of Grace by Linda Wegner. Both are available in .pdf format and can be purchased here.
