Welcome to the web site of True Apostolic Evangelistic Association, Inc. where the founders and presiding Apostle is Chief Apostle Samuel Thomas and Mother Anne Thomas.
True Apostolic Evangelistic Association, Inc. was founded July 10, 1979. The name True Apostolic originated from a powerful woman of God Melissa Buchanan McNeill, the mother of Mother Anne Thomas. Apostle Thomas was moved by the Lord to bring a tent to Sanford, North Carolina. The tent was was located on Washington Avenue. Many souls were saved and healed at the tent services. Through the tent services is were he meet the McCormick family, and Elder Ira McCormick is the oldest Elder at the church.
While preaching under the tent the Lord spoke to Apostle Thomas to start a church in Sanford, North Carolina. Apostle did not know where to look for a place to start a church, but Sis. Flossie Redding knew of a building that was empty. Sis. Flossie Redding along with her family used their Lowe's Credit card to help purchase supplies to remodel the building. The building was in need of much repair because it was the old Ginsburg school. Many souls was saved and healed through the ministry. The church was located on School Street for several years. Through the help of the late L.P. Cox we are now located on Main Street in the Jonesboro area.
We service the community by serving a hot meal four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) from 12 - 1 p.m. and also by giving away clothes.
The Lord spoke to Apostle Thomas about 30 years ago and told him he would have a Bible College one day. We now have the True Ap School of Theology located upstairs over the church.
WITH ALL OF THIS WE SAY "TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR A LL HE HAS DONE AND IS GOING TO DO!"
