The Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ “Facebook Live – Streaming” Service at 11 AM Sunday March 29th

The Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, Syracuse was founded in 1956 by Bishop Robert W. Jones. Establishment of Apostolic was the culmination of a long journey first begun by the senior Bishop Jones in 1924 in Little London, Jamaica, WI, where he was born. After completing primary and secondary education in Spanish Town and afterward attending Dint Hill Agricultural College in Linstead, Jamaica, the bishop relocated to the United States. One year later in 1944 Bishop Robert W. Jones was called to the ministry, having previously committed himself to God and to a life of holiness. Over the next few years the senior Jones received formal training for the ministry at Aenon Bible College. The original First Lady of Apostolic, Marjorie Jones, met and married Bishop Jones in 1947–a union which would mark the beginning of the Apostolic family in Syracuse.

The early activities of the church ministry were conducted under the tutelage of Dr. Lula Jackson in Waterbury, Connecticut. Following a brief period in Ithaca, the ministry was moved to Syracuse, New York in 1954. Two years later Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ came to call 347 Cortland Avenue in Syracuse, NY home, where it has remained for more than a half century.

Community service and involvement have been central components of the Apostolic ministry since its early years. During the mid-1960s Bishop Robert W. Jones worked closely with the management of the General Motors Plant in Syracuse, NY to secure employment for multiple members of the congregation as well as other members of the Syracuse community. Starting in the 1970s and for decades to come, the senior bishop assisted many young people with summer employment at Nationwide & Aetna Insurance Company and coordinated full time jobs for others with various employers throughout the Syracuse area. True to its continued outreach ministry the founder of Apostolic played a pivotal role in helping many secure home ownership, owed partly to his having succeeded as one of Kanan Real Estate’s top salesmen. Sometimes forfeiting his commission for the cause, Bishop Robert W. Jones would continue home assistance services for well over 20 years.
