In 1943, Rev. Farrell E. Forrest and family organized the first Jesus’ Name Pentecostal Church in Springfield, Missouri at the corner of Dale & Taylor. 77 years later, God has reopened the past by allowing Pastor Nathan Forrest & Battlefield Apostolic Church to purchase the very same property and begin preaching the very same gospel message his father preached.
We’re celebrating the One God message together with family, friends and this community…AGAIN!
