CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF TRUTH
Acts of the Apostles
The Church of which Jesus Christ spoke (Matt. 16:18) was established on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) and has continued mightily thereafter. An accurate record of the birth and early years of the Church can be found in the Book of Acts. The Church is built on the foundation and knowledge of who Jesus Christ is – the one true God.
Bishop Broussard passed away to be with the Lord in October 1999 but not before anointing Bro. S.D. Schwing to fill his shoes as Pastor of Lafayette’s First Apostolic Church. Under Bro. Schwing’s pastorship, the Church has continued steadfastly, grown and prospered. Back to Timeline
Church growth continued as the assembly continued steadfastly in the Apostle’s Doctrine. Bishop Broussard ordained Pastors to continue works throughout the surrounding areas. As a result, many daughter-works came out of the Lafayette church and churches were established in the surrounding towns of New Iberia, Opelousas, Abbeville, Jennings, Saint Martinville, and Carencro.

1971 – Lana Drive
In 1971, Bro. and Sis. J.H. Broussard came to Lafayette with a burden for the people of the city to hear the Word of God and experience His saving power and grace. Through dedication and relentless effort, a church was established in a small living room in their humble home on Lana Drive. It was prophesied that the sanctuary had “wall to wall” carpet, but God was going to fill it with “wall to wall” souls. Back to Timeline
