Pastor Michael & Lynn Eastman
Michael Eastman became the Pastor of Staunton Apostolic Church on September 1, 2011. Michael came to Staunton, Virginia when he felt the call of God to leave his home of 48 years in Florida. He and his wife, Lynn, have been married since 1985 and have raised five children. Michael was employed at the Kennedy Space Center for 28 years and during that time felt the call to start a new church plant in Florida. After seeing that work established, God directed him to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley where he continues to minister both locally and globally. Michael serves the Virginia District UPCI as the Global Missions Director. He has ministered in Israel and in Thailand and works closely with global missionaries throughout the world. Pastor Michael Eastman is accompanied by a team of ministers and leaders that are committed to meeting the needs of our congregation and community and to seeing the gospel preached to the whole world.
We have been commissioned to go, teach, baptize, and make disciples.
Jesus Christ established his church upon the foundation of the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament apostles, with Himself as the Chief Cornerstone (Eph 2:20).
Christ personally discipled the original Apostles so they could grow the church by making disciples of others. Therefore, their acts and teachings establish the Biblical pattern for the modern church.
Our church name, Staunton Apostolic, reflects this commitment to preach the apostolic doctrine, to experience apostolic demonstration of the Spirit, and to live an apostolic lifestyle.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe in miracles, healing and the new birth experience.
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ).

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.
Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Romans 6:3-6, Colossians 2:11-14, Acts 2:38)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4).
We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.
