To all the Saints of God,

     Health authorities and governmental officials continue to strongly encourage people to wear face coverings in public gatherings and use social distancing, wash your hands, and get tested to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  In some places wearing face mask is mandatory in indoor public spaces.



     We are increasing indoor, in-person services with face mask, social distancing, temperature checks and Covid-19 testing. We are also continuing online services through Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube.   In-person Baptism and prayer service are available by attending our local service on site, attending our services on Zoom, or emailing your request to: or



      As we obey the Magistrates, we have complete faith that God will continue to hear our prayers and provide a way for us through these uncertain times.


 Romans 13:2-4 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.


 TITUS 3:1-2 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

Examination, Is Jesus Christ The Son of God Now?

By Apostle Dennis G. Smith


     The death, burial, resurrection, and ascension also known as the gospel and exaltation of Jesus Christ provide and proclaim salvation for everyone who will believe and obey the commandments of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Apostle’s Doctrine teaches us that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Almighty God and our Savior who took on a flesh and blood body through the Virgin Mary as her seed in defeating satan, as the seed of David, and as the seed of Abraham and died upon the cross for our sin.  When we believe in Him and call upon his name, we will find everything we need, both now and for all eternity.


Titus 2:13 - 14 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.


 Colossians 2:9 - 10 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.


Jude1:24 – 2 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, Jude1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion, and power, both now and ever. Amen.


Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.


Hebrews 2:16 - 17 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Hebrews 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.


      The Goal of this teaching is to make all men see that the Lord Jesus Christ is the one and only God Almighty who functions now from His role as the Father, the one who made all things and who is the Holy Ghost.  To understand this, all must come to see that the Father and the Holy Ghost is the same Spirit.  For there is only one Spirit.


Ephesians 4:4 - 6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


     The One Spirit of God now indwells all believers who calls upon his name believing in him, obeying his commandments, and asking Him for His Holy Spirit also known as the Holy Ghost.  


     Even the Glorified Bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ which ascended into heaven vanishing into the cloud, no longer functions in a sacrificial role because the blood of the natural body was shed on the cross for the sins of all believers which was the ending of the sacrificial role and the Sonship of God Almighty.


     All must come to realize, understand, and notice that we are speaking of the one Spirit and his physical gloried body, which is one person, one being who can appear in different forms and disappear or vanish out of visual site, who is the one and only God.  


     The bible is not speaking of a separate big daddy God and his separate little boy God or implying multiple Gods.  The bible is speaking of one God and his physical Bodily appearances that include his birth in a natural flesh and blood body. 


     When the bible speaks of the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost the bible is not speaking of three separate and distinct persons which imply three Gods.  The Bible is also not speaking of a compound name. The only distinction is between the one Spirit and the glorified physical body that he will visualize himself in which can change appearances in the way He looks so that He may be recognizable or not recognizable to those who knew Him when He was born a natural man, with a natural body to die on the cross for our sins.


John 21:1 - 9 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. John 21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. John 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. John 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. John 21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. John 21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.


John 21:12 -13 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. John 21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.


     Notice again that his disciples which are his Apostles knew the way he looked when he was a natural man, but he is not a natural man anymore and they could not recognize him until he made himself known to them by performing supernatural works or the breaking of bread.  This is what Apostle Johnson teaches when he says that he got rid of the Human form and did not carry it to heaven. In other words He ended the natural life or natural human form on the cross clearly establishing that the natural human form is temporary. 


     This is also reported in Church history that believers in what is common called the Sabellianism heresy told the Catholic Church nearly 2000 years ago that the human form was temporary.  The teaching that he human form was temporary is what led the historic Roman Church council of Nicaea to label this teaching as heresy.  This false label of heresy is the great error that has led to many Christian Churches into continuing to teach the false doctrine of three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead also called orthodox trinity.


     Also all must come to realize that the non-biblical word trinity is not the problem because the Lord Jesus Christ commanded His Apostles to teach all nations to obey his commandments and to baptize them in the singular name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost which are three titles of the one God recorded in the bible according to Matthew 28:19 which is referred to by many Christians as the Holy Trinity. But the one singular name is Jesus Christ or Lord Jesus. 


Matthew 28:19 - 20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


      Once again, the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is the Trinity of Titles of the way the One and Only God Almighty is known. He is known as the Father because he made all things, He was known as the Son when he took on a flesh and blood life in the Virgin Mary and He is Known as the Holy Ghost because he is the one Holy Spirit who indwells all Apostolic Christian Believers.


     Many Apostolic Christians may not use the word trinity at all because of its association with the false baptism using the titles of God. When we pray, we call on Him as our Father who is in Heaven and conclude in the one name given among men to save us which is Jesus Christ acknowledging and stating He is God almighty as also confirmed by the Apostle’s Doctrine in Acts 4:12 and 1 Timothy 3:16.


Acts 4:10 - 12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Acts 4:11 This is the stone, which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.


 1Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached


 unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


     So when someone ask you the question, “Do you believe in the Trinity?”, you can answer, I believe that Jesus Christ is God Almighty because I believe in the trinity of titles, or the trinity of manisfestations which express the Godhead or the way that God is known. But I do not believe in three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead because separate persons imply three Gods.


    The baptism in water calling the titles, or performing the baptism by only calling the titles of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost and not calling the name Jesus Christ or Lord Jesus is error. It is error because it never calls the actual name which is Jesus Christ resulting in a false and incorrect baptism.  The baptism in the singular name of Jesus Christ or Lord Jesus is what the biblical Apostles taught and did in the book of Acts 2:38 and Acts 8:16.


Acts 2:36 - 38 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?  Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


ACT8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.



Acts 8:14 - 17 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:  Acts 8:15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:  Acts 8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)  Acts 8:17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.



We continue with the edited message from Apostle S. C. Johnson…. Is Jesus Christ the Son of God Now?


Is Jesus Christ the Son of God Now?

Written by Bishop S. C. Johnson

Edited by Apostle Dennis G. Smith


     When we summarize the Son of God or the Sonship of God by saying that God Almighty took on flesh and blood and died upon the cross, we certify our gospel with the bible to make all men see that this is the teaching of Biblical Apostle’s Doctrine.


     Touching Jesus Christ being the Son of God now, the Bible tells us:
"... as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same;" Hebrews 2:14

(Here we see that Jesus Christ is God Almighty).


     God made a promise, in Genesis 3:15 concerning the seed of the woman. God was speaking of the body which He was going to beget and make from Mary's body.


We will continue the examination of the topic " Is Jesus Christ the Son of God Now?" … after Parent’s Day.


May the Lord Bless you and Keep you and eternally hold you in the center of his will. 

May he open your understanding that you will come to know that you must repent of your sins and be baptized by immersion in water in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. 


Then you must continue in prayer to God asking him for the Holy Ghost, calling on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and waiting or tarrying until you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the sign following speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives you utterances.  


Then you must leave the principles of the doctrine and go on to perfection overcoming the love of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.


Then you must continue steadfastly in the Apostle’s Doctrine remembering always that he that endures until the End, the same shall be saved.  In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who is God Almighty. Amen


With perfect love,

Apostle Dennis G. Smith

• Vaccination remains the most effective protection against COVID-19

• Practice social distancing

• Frequently wash hands

• Frequent cleaning of public and high touch areas



Social Distancing guidelines:

• Social distancing means staying away from close contact in public spaces. It includes actions like staying out of places where lots of people gather and maintaining distance — approximately 6 feet — from others.

• Social distancing also includes minimizing contact with people when possible, limiting nonessential travel, working from home, and minimizing social gatherings.

• All people should practice social distancing — not just those who are seriously ill or at high risk.

• Social distancing is a proven way to slow the spread of pandemics.


When to Wear a Mask:

Those who are staying home and have no close contact with people who are infected with COIVID-19 do not need a mask most of the time. However, wearing a nonmedical or homemade mask may be helpful in certain situations or for certain populations. Wear a Mask when:

• Shopping at essential businesses, like grocery stores or pharmacies.

• While visiting your health care provider.

• Traveling on public transportation.

• Interacting with customers/clients at essential businesses.

• When feeling sick, coughing, or sneezing.

• In all public spaces indoors and outdoors.


Because homemade masks protect everyone else from the droplets created by the wearer, it is important that as many people as possible wear these masks when leaving their homes. This helps prevent those who may be infectious but are only mildly symptomatic or not symptomatic from spreading the virus to others in the community.


Everyone should remember the phrase: “My mask protects you; your mask protects me.” By increasing the overall number of people who are containing their coughs, sneezes, and other droplets, it will help us control the overall spread of the virus.
