About our church...
We are Greater Augusta Apostolic Church! Our church has been a part of the community since 1947. As a unified body of born-again believers, the aim of Greater Augusta is to spread the wonderful redemptive message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church is affiliated with the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ and holds firm to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the apostolic doctrine. Believing in the dynamic power of prayer, we constantly aim at "praying without ceasing (Acts 12:5, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)." We believe in offering God praises from our mouth and we "worship Him in spirit and in truth (Psalm 34:1, John 4:24)". For additional information regarding our beliefs, please read our statement of faith and the way we worship.
