Work for Jesus!
We need your help if you are a Computer Programmer, a Key Edit person, an Artist, a Translator, a Fund Raiser, an Email Correspondent and if you can donate some of your time to the spread of the Gospel around the world.
We also need PRAYER WARRIORS and strong Apostolic Teachers and Writers.  We are entirely unpaid except for the souls we can reach for Jesus.
We urge any RETIRED Solid Apostolic believers to take advantage of the low cost of living in many "Third World" countries and move to retire in one of them. As a resident you can begin home Bible studies and become unofficial missionaries. Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries can help you decide on the country, but at this time cannot finance your move.                                                                                                                — S.

 Up Way Publications 43rd Anniversary

The Bible Apostolic Logo features the golden sun rising from a deep blue morning sky. The Bible as the one foundation upon which we build and are establishes is marked open by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Great Creator who so loved us that He became flesh and dwelt among us, then bled and died to pay the debt for our sins. Then the golden sun arc doubles to represent the open tomb from which He arose triumphant. The descending dove represents the coming of the Holy Spirit to us and the flame represents the fire and power of the Holy Spirit in the life of every true believer. When asked if we are Fundamentalist, we are more Fundamental than they.
Are we Evangelistic? Very!
Are we Baptist? We place a higher value on Biblical water baptism than the Baptists.
Are we Pentecostal? We definitely believe in the entire of the Acts 2 experience including that the promise of 2:38 and 39 is to all that the Lord our God shall call.
Are we Apostolic? Our desire and goal is to preach, teach and practice that exact same Gospel that Jesus Christ and His Original Apostles taught and would still be teaching if here in person, as we prayerfully try to be their faithful representatives. 
— Samuel M. Smith,
Presiding Elder

1. above, we have been publishing Total Gospel Tracts and the MARRIAGE: Delight or Disaster book since September 1969. Until 1999, all Up Way Publications and the related Bible Apostolic Study materials were print format only, but in 1999, with the aid of Rev. Steve Bennett and the former website, we began an internet presence.  Talk to Ministers began with the first issue of Up Way  for Christians magazine in the Summer of 1972. Newsletters (Now Up Way News)have been published at irregular intervals from 1972, always with some praise to the Lord and some exhortation. Message of the Month, Selected Sermons and the Motto Catalog and our Apostolic Internet Seminary [still being prepared] all perform in this area of training any and all believers to spread the genuine Bible Gospel of Jesus Christ as the Bible tells us He and His original Apostles plus Paul did to anyone who has internet access worldwide. We have All Scripture Verse (ASV series) tracts in 11 languages and some of the tracts written by Rev. Samuel M. Smith have been translated into Russian, Georgian, Brazilian Portuguese, Ilocano Philippine and more recently Burmese, Pakistani Urdu and Indian Telegu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi Indian languages. More than 14 languages in all.

2. above, We are establishing Apostolic Internet Seminary [still being prepared] specifically to train future ministry leaders and provide Certificates and Diplomas which will open doors of ministry to them. We will only issue Diplomas to students who have completed a very intense Bachelor, Masters or Graduate Student level Bible and Ministry course. We are NOT an easy Diploma mill. AIS students will have the knowledge base to respond to any challenge to the original  faith and doctrine.

3.  above, Our doctrinal position must and always shall be in careful agreement with the Bible and as directed by the Holy Spirit as outlined in the Up Way Guarantee. When sufficient trainees and other already established Apostolic ministers have expressed a desire to have a Fellowship organization, Licenses and Certificates of Ordination valid within the Fellowship and recognized by most apostolic organizations will be established with strict guidelines of doctrinal accuracy, holy living, vision of mission and loyalty, first to the Lord Jesus Christ and His service and secondly, to the Fellowship.

4. and 5. above. Elder Samuel M. Smith has already worked as a Personal Evangelist for many years, has opened and attempted to reach communities in the United States by pioneer pastoring churches, and has worked with The Jesus Church and Philippine Bethel Churches in short-term missionary efforts in the Philippines, plus preached and taught in several different churches, including Baptist, Pentecostal, Evangelical and Seventh-Day Adventist in T'bilisi and Kobuleti in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, which is the cradle of all European races and is the ancient and prophetic Bible city Tubal. He has also personally distributed several thousand All Scripture Verse and other Georgian Kartvelian language tracts in T'bilisi and /Batumi and personally distributed over six (6) thousand All Scripture Verse and other Russian language tracts in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia. As personnel and funds become available, approved mission workers with a calling from the Lord will be sent to the harvest field whether in his or her home area or distant lands.

Through it All In The Hollow of His Hand"Through It All IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND" 

The Life Story of Samuel M. Smith,
a major autobiography.

A Bible college student attacked in his own bed at home at 18, just minutes after his mother was killed in the next room over; sought for with bicycle chains and tire irons and later stabbed in the back with a steak knife by someone he had helped at 30; robbed at gunpoint as a taxicab driver at 33 and again at 47, the second time with injuries; another danger when he transported three dangerous escapees from the State Reform School over twenty miles and never knew until informed by the Reformatory days later that he should have been killed; two missionary trips to the Philippines when tensions between the U. S. and Philippines were high and people were saying it was dangerous. He was one of the very first Apostolic ministers into the city of T'bilisi after Georgia became independent of the Soviet Union to preach and teach. Distributed one thousand All Scripture Verse tracts in Russian, mostly in Moscow while it was still the Soviet Union. On the second trip to T'bilisi, gave out  thousands of All Scripture Verse tracts in T'bilisi, Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia in the Georgian Kartvelian language, Armenian and Russian languages. Father of nine living children ages from their 50's to 8 and with many other unexpected happenings. Through It All he was IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND!
People say he should write his life story, so he did and here's your chance to read it. Order at UP WAY Book Catalog or bookstores everywhere that sell WestBow Press books.

In the future, watch UP WAY Book Catalog for a "New Believers " studies type
King James Bible called
