It Started back in 1906…
The Apostolic Assembly of the Faith in Christ Jesus emerged out of the Pentecostal movement that began with the Azusa Street revival in the city of Los Angeles in 1906. Juan Navarro, a participant of that revival, baptized Francisco Llorente in 1912, who later was elected the first Bishop President of the Apostolic Assembly when it was formed in 1925. The organization became a California corporation on March 15, 1930.
Throughout the humble beginnings of AAFC, its tenacious yet caring leaders ministered primarily to the spiritual needs of a growing number of Spanish speaking people who came to the United States looking for a better life for their families. Since then, AAFC has made great strides in not only serving this community of new families and Spanish speaking generations, but has enabled these families and new arrivals in the U.S. adjust to cultural barriers and provide bilingual ministries in response to the rapid growth of Spanish speaking people in the U.S. We are confident that AAFC will continue to grow, in both financial strength and in membership numbers in the years to come. Because the moral fabric of our society continues to weaken, AAFC, its churches, ministries and fellow believers stand willing to face the challenges of meeting the spiritual needs of hurting people around the world. As of the date of this Offering Circular, AAFC has 784 chartered churches operating in the United States, with over 550 missionary churches and ministries operating in 20 foreign countries, with approximately 5,500 active licensed and ordained ministers and affiliated workers serving its membership and ministries. AAFC also relies upon missionaries and affiliated workers to teach the core principles of its faith and religious tenets, international pastors and affiliated national workers to serve its estimated three million members.
