Our Pastor & First Lady
What We Believe
We believe in the ONE baptism as recorded in Acts 2:1-4, 10:44-48 and 19:1-6, is evidence by the speaking in other tongues as the spirit gave utterance as the initial evidence thereof.

We believe the New Birth (being born again) includes a genuine repentance, water baptism in Jesus name (Acts 2:38) and baptism of the Holy Spirit, evidences in other tongues as the spirit gives the utterance.

We believe in the ONE God who is infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purposes, as well as omniscient and omnipresent.

We believe He revealed to us as Father in creation, as Son in redemption and Holy Spirit in his grace that never leaves those who trust him.

We believe that Jesus was born both human and divine and further, that the Godhead be understood to mean all the fullness of God. (Colossians 1:19 & 2:9)
The ministry of Elder Vernon Donald Jr.  began September 1986 in Oxnard, California. Under the leadership of his First Pastors, Bill and Olivia Cannon. He moved quickly through the fields of winning souls for Christ. realizing that he could not stay with Christ without a life of prayer, he quickly asked the Lord for that very thing. It was his praying and fasting that gave to him the wherewithall to fulfill God's words.

Elder Donald quickly became involved with door to door evangelism, street meetings, and home bible classes, convalescent home meetings and a host of others. Then in September 1988, the Lord told him that he was going to make him like Paul; he began to travel though the Navy, extensively around the world, holding bible classes, counseling, preaching, teaching, and baptizing people in the name of Jesus for the remissions of their sins and they were filled with the Holy Ghost. 

He continued to preach the oneness message of Jesus Christ.  After his fifth of seven cruises to the 
other side of the world, Elder Donald knew the Lord was calling him to start a ministry at home. Under the guidance of the late Bishop Charles L Taylor, he waited three more years until he retired out of the Navy in July, 2000. Four months later on November 5, 2000, the church doors of Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church (FTAC), which is now Life Apostolic Ministries (LAM) opened. 

With a fine send off from Pastor Dwayne Sheppard, the saints, and friends of Greater Apostolic Faith Temple Church (a.k.a. "The Home Church"), LAM would (and has) become a church where souls would be saved, talents would be discovered, needs met and where everyone is employed by God.
