“Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” (NKJV; Colossians 1:28)
We see the world in chaos, turmoil, economic instability, not having an optimistic future, drawing forward to its end. Earthquakes and Tsunamis become common phenomena day by day. No artificial intelligence, robot or new invention can predict what will happen even the very next moment, let alone years to come. Hypotheses and scientific theories become futile, and anyway wouldn't enlighten the human mind for a safe and secure future.
The world is a tragedy waiting to happen. The recent happenings and events declare this to everyone. On the other hand, it is a scriptural fulfillment. (see Luke 21:10-11). God created the human being in His own image and likeness but fell short of the glory of God because of disobedience and sin. “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one”. (Romans 3:10). God loves the sinner but hates the sin. Our Creator God knew that we as humans cannot free ourselves from the clutches of sin.
God has given APF a task to preach, teach and warn the world in all wisdom. Our aim is to ultimately present every human being perfect in Christ Jesus, by His blood. We believe that only God can make things perfect. The church is a signpost which guides people to the heavenly direction. And, therefore we are entrusted with a vision to reach out to the unreached and the unsaved.
We are mandated to strictly teach the full gospel, believe in the Holy Trinity and to fulfill the Great Commission (see Matthew 28:18-20). We remain trustworthy witnesses of the gospel in all earnest, striving enthusiastically to be faithful and to present every human being perfect for the mighty coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. (see Romans 3:25-26).
With sincerity, through the love of Christ
