Bible Apostolic Logo

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. — Samuel M. Smith, Editor,
Presiding Elder

Dear Pastor Blessing:

Greetings dear brother in Jesus' precious name.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this online and even more sorry that I have not yet had the funds to have the next tracts printed. I am working very hard to get those funds for you. The South India brethren have gone ahead and paid for their own and just ask me to reimburse as soon as possible.

I'll try to have more of the pictures and at least brief captions in the next day or two.

For Jesus' sake,

Bro. Sam

Dear Pastor Blessing:

I still do not know how I missed all the emails I see you have sent. I was really concerned. I guess I must have done most searches on the Up Way Publications email and failed to check the Followers of Jesus Christ emails.

I have attached hereto the much-belated Baptism In Jesus' Name tracts in English. I am not sure, but pastor Kothapalli may be working on that one, as he believes in it.

Thank you so much for your reports and the blessings of God on your ministry. I am especially happy that you are safe and back home.

For Jesus' sake,

Bro. Sam

Dear Most beloved brother in Christ Rev. Samuel Smith.

Greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord Savior Jesus Christ.

Dear sir, we had conducted  gospel meetings at Brahman Kodudore village the dated on 3rd and 4th May 2013. It is dangers [dangerous] village for Naaskals and tarriest village [?]. They do not believe God and Jesus Christ.

I called some preachers [to go] along with me and encourage to them in word of God. We have preached to them New Testament church doctrine and worship service two days. We have preached Word of Truth among of seventh day church and Lutheran churches. We distribute Up Way Publications tracts in the meetings. The meetings were very successfully by God Grace and your precious prayers. They are veryimpressed about the truth of God. We proclaimed about more times First Century cjurch and equality, and love and salvation in church. They are very interesting to hear Word of God. Please pray for my family and church and church of Christ brothers and sisters in Christ. I would like send some pictures of the meetings by Postal to you.

We are all regularly praying for you and your wife and sons and Up Way Publications International and Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries. I am very unhappy not to receive any reply from you until this day. I hope you're doing well by God's grace.

Beloved in Jesus Christ,
            Greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Now I am submitting few lines to you to pray about our newly started Church in Ayodhya Lanka.  Ayodhya Lanka is a very small village.   This village is in the center of the river Godavari.  There is no proper road for this village.  There is only one way in the center of river Godavari to go this village.  Sometimes this road will cover with river water.  That time they will use small boats to go to their village.  Because of that in this village mostly all are fishermen.  Recently our Jesus Gospel Ministry Gospel outreach team reached this Ayodhya Lanka village with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We all went by walk to this village to give the Gospel.  Because there is no travelling facilities to this village.  We gave them Gospel Tracts door to door, all the pastors are Preached the Gospel on the Streets and road corners and prayed for sick people.  So many hindu people are came to know about Jesus Christ and accepted as their Lord and Savior.  Now we started a small Church in this village.  Pastor Mani Raju  is taking care for this new Church in Ayodhya Lanka village.  Amen  Hallelujah  All the Glory to God.  I am sending the video taken in the Gospel outreach in Ayodhya Lanka.  Please see the video and continually Pray for our Jesus Gospel Ministry.  And also please remember our Gospel outreach team and their families in your daily prayers.  And also please pray to reach more unreached rural villages in India with the Love of Jesus Christ.  Thank you.  May God Bless you exceedingly and more abundantly.  Amen and Amen

Your Brother in Jesus Christ,
Pastor Jachin Charley Scott

NOTICE: I am not yet familiar with this ministry and how closely they follow "The Gospel as Jesus Christ and His First Century Apostles Would Preach Today." I will be communicating with this pastor more as time goes on.

I am impressed with his You Tube® outreach. I will encourage him to join with Pastor Blessing, Pastor Kothapali and others.                        — S.M.S.

   My Dear Kind Hearted and Prayerful International Dirctor. Bro.Samuel M Smith,
   Greetings to you all in Jesus' Precious Name.
   I am extremely sorry because I could not reply you. You might have been upset very much because of the gap that occured in correspondence.

   Once again I beg your pardon. Why because I could not be in touch wth you, you will get after going through the following :
As you know I went to preach in Orissa State. After my preaching in some plain areas, I was encouraged and went into some interior areas where there is no transport or communicatoin facilities. From there we can't communicate with any body. There it is very difficult even to survive. In these interior places we can't have good food or sleeping facilities. It is very Hard and difficult to preach the Gospel to the inhabitants of these areas, the people here are supersititious and can't easily be drawn to Christ. Moreover the Anti-Christian movements work in brisk pace to curtial the Gospel work. Some times they resort to man handling, causing damage to the apparatus which used in ministry and some times it goes to the extent of taking way the lives of the missionaries. In such conditions I spent 5 months in these areas  preaching the gospel, all these five months, I lost contacts with my family due to the lack of communication facilities. when I came back to my home, I fell ill because of the food and water which I used there in Orissa State. My wife got angry with me, picked up quarrel and even thought to part with me as I was not in their reach for the last five months. Some times I was attacked and was about to be man handled but by the Grace of God, I could escape such trials but I am very happy because despite of all these conditions, I could lead some to Christ as a result of ministry by the Grace of God.
   Please pray for my health because I became very weak and lost all my strength, but now I am convalescing slowly. By the grace of God, I am still alive and wish to continue in the ministry.
   My E-mail account got blocked as I did not use it for the last six months, as a result I lost all the e-mails in my account and only last week, I got my email account activated. I saw your mail and very much hapy to learn that all your church is praying for me. You took pains for enquire about me and about my whereabouts. I thought the there is nobdoy who takes care of me, but you are there who love me with the love of Jesus. These are very busy days for everyone and nobody shows concern about his neighbour but you are more than all of them and your heart is filled with the Love of Jesus Christ.
   Please let me know if any missionary come to our place, so that we can continue in God's ministry in our area. Especially I am looking forward for Missionary Jeremy Lang to  meet us and your are also invited to our place to do the ministry and encourage us to extend the God's Kingdom.
   Thank you very much for your holding funds for the translation of tracts in Oriya Language (Orissa State). We would like to translate One new tract into Telugu and Oriya language and print it. Remaining are from old tracts already translated because we need more tracts to print  in Telugu langauge. Please pray for my health and I got mentally disturbed and now getting back to normalcy. I will be in touch with you here after without interruption.
   My special thanks to The Rock Kailua Church members for their prayers. Once again thank you for your loving and kind heart to co-operate with us to do the ministry in this Hard times among Hindu, Muslim and Pagan people.
With Love and Prayers,
In His Holy Services,

Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries, Up Way Publications International 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, although expenditures for literature, publications and shipping are always greater than the amount of donations received.

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.
