A man or woman who claims to be an apostolic is one who lives for God, whose name is Jesus. Here are a few of many things Apostolics believe in:
*Being a good person is part of being a good christian
*Jesus is God and Savior
*Heaven and Hell are real
*To be saved you must be baptized in Jesus name
*The only way you can get into heaven is through Jesus
*Your children will have to bear punishment for your sins
*You will bear punishment for your sin
*You will be accountable for all sins you commit after you know the truth
*Prayer is not optional to get to heaven, it is required
*Baptism is not sprinkling with water, it is full submersion

Some Apostolics can be identified by:
*Read KJV bible only
*Women don't cut their hair
*Women wear dresses that at least cover the knees
*Neither men nor women wear jewelry
*Both men and women Wear sleeves at least covering elbows
*Men have short hair
*Men Wear pants (at least covering knees)

To find out how to be a better person and a better christian, you should read the bible (KJV) and learn as much as possible.

Note: Some Apostolics and Penecostals are very similar, and sometimes the same exact religion, so note sometimes Penecostals call themselves Apostolics and vice versa
Some Apostolic Scriptures:
Ephesians 4:5-One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism

Acts 2:38- Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

John 10:30-33 I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

a religion that worships the lord thy God ( the father, son, and Holy Ghost) and tries to live the best for god, taking the bible and the books in it to see what they think what it says means, especially because that is what the bible says you should do. we try to live our lives completely dedicated to God, repenting for every sin we commit, and going up to the alter to pray, not paying any attention to what people may think you look like when you pray, because God is looking for that someone who doesn't care what people think of them when praying, because god likes to be #1 in your life, not something you try to fit into your schedule after something else
long ago, the catholic church named us penecostols, because we rebelled from the catholic church, because we thought that their practices were wrong, dressing their pope as if he were a god, everyone wearing jewelry and all, but many people called themselves penecostols later on and so then we were called apostolics
