About Us

A little bit of our 
History

Apostolic Revival Church (ARC) was founded in 2011 in Joplin, MO, growing from a home prayer group into a thriving congregation. After meeting in the offices of a local business, the ARC began renting a space in an industrial park at 2910 Davis Blvd. This facility served the ARC for a couple of years before it was time to look for a larger space. In 2014, the ARC moved to Newman Road, sharing a facility with another local congregation.

In 2015, the ARC moved to their current campus at 1122 Illinois Ave, and in 2016 Nathan J. Roberts and family from Louisiana joined us as our pastor.

What do we believe and teach?

Apostolic Revival Church is an Apostolic Pentecostal church.
Apostolic – we believe the doctrine written and taught by the apostles of Jesus Christ is the foundational doctrine of the Christian church and should be taught today.
Pentecostal – we identify with the birth of the church in Acts 2 when God’s Spirit was poured out on the believers in the upper room. They spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave them the ability, and we experience that same supernatural interaction with God today in our lives and congregation.

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)

About Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)

About the Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

About Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.)
