The Bible Apostolic Logo features the golden sun rising from a deep blue morning sky. The Bible as  the one foundation upon which we build and are establishes is marked open by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Great Creator who so loved us  that He became flesh and dwelt among us, then bled and died to pay the debt for our sins. The golden sun arc doubles to represent the open tomb from  which He arose triumphant. The descending dove represents the coming of the Holy Spirit to us and the flame represents the fire and power of the Holy Spirit in the life of every true believer. When asked if we are Fundamentalist, we are more Fundamental than they. Are we Evangelistic? Very! Are we Baptist? We place a higher value on Biblical water baptism than the Baptists. Are we Pentecostal? We definitely believe in the entire of the Acts 2 experience including that the promise of 2:38 and 39 is to all that the Lord our God shall call. Are we Apostolic? Our desire and goal is to preach, teach and practice that exact same Gospel that Jesus Christ and His Original Apostles taught and would still be teaching if here in person, as we prayerfully try to be their faithful representatives.

Presiding Elder

No Kayatmo ti Rag-o


NO KAYATMO TI RAG-O

Ilocano/Philippines translation of "If You Want JOY
Adda ti naam-ammok a naganus ken napintas a balasang a nagsapsapul iti rag-o ragsak. Awan ti dina pinadas. Naaddaan iti pirak, panakinaig kadagiti lallaki, inumen a nasanger, druga, napipintas nga arwaten, ken asawa a nangipalubos iti amin a pagayatanna. Mabalin  a makuna nga isu ket naragsak. Namindua a ginandatna a pukawen ti biagna ngem napaay. Naganak a naganus a balasang ti inauna nga anakna. Adda met naaramidan ti inaudi a kabsatna, a no nataengan koma ket naibalud iti umagarup lima a tawen.
Apay a saan a naragsak? Nabiag ngamin a kas iti pagayatanna. Saan a pinaiturayan iti anyaman a linteg a namoralan ken naestilo a panakilangen. Ken awan ti nangipabigbig kenkuana a saan a naan-anay ti ragsakna. Ammo dagiti isu amin a makaam-ammo kenkuana nga agbibiag a nakaay-ay-ay.
Daytoy a babai ket maysa kadagiti rinibu a mangtuntonton iti ragsak ngem kaskasdi a dina naragpatan. Umingar a makangngeg ti linteg dagiti Cristiano a namoralan ken umsienna ti kapanunotan a naragsak ti siasinoman nga agbiag para ken Jesucristo.

Adu dagiti saan mangikankano kadagiti “Cristiano” nga assaan “aleng-aleng a relihiyoh”. Ken manguy-uyaw kadagiti, banbanag a maipapan ken Cristo. Ti talna rag-o, ragsak ken ti panakapnek ket saan nga isu ti pudno a kapanunotanda maipanggep ti kaipapanan ti pudno a Cristiano.

Kadatayo a nakaamirisen ti pudno a kaipapanan ti BIAG, maawatantayo ti kunana iti Biblia, “Kadakuada ti dios a nailubongan binulsekna dagiti is-isip dagiti saan a namati, tapno di agraniag kadakuada ti lawag ti evangelio ti dayag ni Cristo, isu a ladawan ti Dios….” (2 Corinto 4:4;  basaenyo ti Juan 12:40).
Daytoy ket mapaspasamak iti amin nga edad. Mabalin a sawen tayo iti nebated nga iti ad-adda a panangtuntontayo iti rag-o ken ragsak, ad-adda m
et nga itarayannatayo.

Ngem no mapaspasnek ti maysa a tao a manggun-od kadagiti banbanag a nadiosan, lipatenna ti bukodna a bagi ket tumulong iti padana a tao, ad-adda pay a rag-o ragsak ti sagrapenna. Kas kunana iti Mateo 6:33, “Ngem birukenyo nga umunati Dios ken ti kinalintegna, ket isuamin dagitoy a banbanag maiayondanto kadakayo.” Numanpay 

daytoy ti mainumo nga aramiden, awan ti mayat a mangaramid.

Ita agsalodsodak man, pudno kadi a naragsakka? Mapnekka kadin iti agdama a biagmo? Nasapulam kadin ti kinapudno babaen ti druga? seks? inumen a naparagsit a musika? Ar-aramidem kadi ti bukodmo a pagayatan? Wenno padpadasem kadi a tuntunen ti kaipapanan ti maysa a “banag?”

No napadasamon ti amin ket napaayka, padasem man ni Jesucristo. Ipalubosmo man a sagidennaka ti makakoryente a PANNAKABALINNA ket agbalbaliwka a maminpinsan. “Ti talna ibatik kadacayo, ti talnak itdek kadakayo: saan a kas ti panangited ti lubong ti panagitedko kadakayo. Saan koma nga agpulkok ti pusoyo ken di agbuteng,” (Juan 14:27). “Dagitoy insaok idi kadakayo tapno adda koma talnayo kaniak; ditoy lubong addanto rigatyo: ngem manginanamakayo, siak pinarmekko ti lubong,” (Juan 16:33). “Awan ti talna iti nadangkes,” (Isaias 48:22). “Isu nga uray no dikay makita, ayatenyo; ket uray no ita ket dikay makita, patienyo ket agrag-ocayo iti nayebkas a rag-o ken napno iti dayag,” (1 Pedro 1:8).

Kasano ti isusuknalmo ken Jesucristo? Kasano ti panangragpatmo iti rag-o, talna ken ragsak kenkuana? No pudno a mamatika nga isu ti makaisalakan ken mangted iti talna mapapigsake iti Dagiti Aramid 2:38 a kunana: “Ket ni Pedro kinunana kadakuada: ‘Agbabawikayo, ken mabautizaran ti tunggal maysa kadakayo iti nagan ni Jesu-Cristo a maipaay iti pannakaikkat dagiti basbasolyo; ket awatenyonto ti parangkap ti Espiritu Santo.”

Mariknam kadi a saanka a namati? “Ngem ti Dios ipatalgedna ti ayatna kadakayo, agsipud ta idinto a managbasoltayo, pay laeng , ni Cristo natay gapu kadatayo,” (Roma 5:8). “Ta kasta la unay ti panagayat ti Dios iti lubong; nga intedna ti Anacna a Bugbugtong, tapno ammin a mamati kenkuana, saan a mapukaw, no di ket adda biagna nga agnanayon,” (Juan 3:16).

Anya ti mapasamak no mamati, agbabawi ken mabautizaranka iti nagan ni Apo Jesus? Awatem ti parangkap ti Espiritu Santo ken “Gapuna no ti maysa adda ken Cristo, isu baro a parsua: dagiti banag a daan napalabasdan, adtoy nagbalinda a baro,” (2 Corinto 5:17).  Baro a pagayatan, baro a panirigan, talma ragsak ken pananapnek! “Ngem ti bunga ti Espiritu ayat, rag-o, talna, mabayag a panagitured, kinaanus, kinalaing, kinamanagtalek,” (Galacia 5:22).

No naumakan iti kadaanan nga aramid, padasem ti makirelasyon Kenkuana a dimo pay napadasan iti biagno! Agbalbaliwka, awatem ti PANNAKABALIN, ket maaddaanka iti sibubukel a BARO A BIAG!

Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries, Up Way Publications and Apostolic Internet Seminary are an Establishment of Religion as defined in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America and therefore, since Congress shall make NO law regarding this Establishment of Religion, we are NOT tax exempt under the Internal Revenue Service code. We are not sustained by any denomination, special interest or parent organization. We accept no online or e-mail advertising. Our operations and mission are funded by -- and depend entirely upon -- the voluntary financial support of Real Bible Believing Christians like YOU!  All income is reported as taxable income to the Internal Revenue Service. However, donations are never quite enough to cover the costs of printing and shipping literature around the world for Jesus' sake.

Are we Evangelical? Fundamental? Pentecostal? Apostolic? We claim all of these in the sense of maintaining total Biblical integrity of the things we teach and preach. For this reason, we use the term Bible Apostolic. We seek to be totally correct according to the Bible maintaining careful contextual and cultural understanding as well as known strengths and weaknesses of any given writer who, while inspired by the Holy Spirit, was still forced to communicate using the language, culture and known understandings of his day and place. So we are Bible in the sense that everything we say and do is intended to fully align with solid, indisbutably Bible teaching when understood as the writers and first hearers and readers of the Scriptures would have understood them. So we are Evangelical in efforts to reach the whole world with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are Fundamental in that like the Church of Christ motto, we speak where the Bible speaks and leave the rest alone. We are Pentecostal because we both see the promise as continuing as long as the Lord our God shall call mankind to Himself and we have experienced speaking in tongues and other manifestations of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We are Apostolic in the sense that we are urgently trying to reestablish original New Testament Apostolic teaching, preaching and life.
