Peoples Church is not your average Apostolic church. In 2002, Prophet Michael had a vision from God, and saw the future storefront location of Peoples Church with an interracial congregation worshiping God in the Holy Ghost. In fulfillment of this prophecy, Peoples Church was founded in 2005 as a mission to the impoverished east side of Springfield,Illinois. The worship is lively Pentecostal style, in an informal setting. There is strong emphasis on faith healing, and the gifts of the Spirit, including speaking in tongues. Unlike other Apostolic churches, the main worship service is held on the biblical fourth commandment, seventh day, (Saturday) sabbath, rather than the traditional Catholic/Protestant Sunday holiday. Peoples Church is a peace church, holding to the belief that issues of life and death should be left only in the hand of God. This results in our opposition to abortion, capitol punishments, and all wars. We hold the 1611 King James Bible to be Gods infallible, inerrant word. We are on a mission from God. It is our desire to eventually have the doors open every day for community activities/service, or worship.
