It’s one of those hard to avoid problems that just naturally occurs.
If you’re single and reading this you’re shaking your head in agreement right now.
Some of these standards are solid biblical truths, while others are personal opinions based on years of counseling and observation.
Let me start with a few statements of fact: Being single does not mean that you are less valuable than married people, and it’s far better to be single than married to the wrong person.
Members are said to be disciplined out of love, and since the church believes some sins are worse than others, the degree of discipline varies on the degree of sin.
If the member commits a sin unto death, as the Apostolic Christian Church believes to be laid out by the Bible, he or she will be excommunicated.
Preaching is done by lay ministers, who have been chosen by, and from among, the congregation.
They are faithful men of good report with a consistent Christian witness and zeal for truth.
Admittedly, finding apostolic singles is not the easiest thing to do. If only you look in the right places, you are sure to find a guy or lady who not only appreciates, but also holds similar Christian beliefs as you do.
The conversion experienced for each member varies in timing and detail, but all include repentance for one's sins, making restitution, confessing sins to God while in the presence of man (an elder of the church), and finding peace with God.
The word "convert" is used throughout the denomination to describe anyone who begins repentance but has not yet been baptized into the church.

With that in mind, these six dating standards are directed towards every age group.Our Sunday and Wednesday night services are open to anybody. If you have not attended before, please check out our Visitors Guide.
