Statement of Beliefs
The After Christ Christian Center is a non-denominational church. After Christ or AC3, as it is affectionately called, has been mandated by God to go forth and proclaim the Word of God in the surrounding community as well as to the nations. Salvation, deliverance, healing and teaching of the full gospel are the focal points of AC3 while also emphasizing instructions in the Christian lifestyle of holiness and prayer.
The After Christ Christian Center and After Christ Ministry was founded in 1996 by Apostle Rudolph Ellis along with his wife, Pastor Lois Ellis.
