Apostolate Committee of Holy trinity Kileleshwa



What is Apostolate?


  A group of people that exists for the spreading of religious doctrine) 1 Corinthians 15:9-10

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle,
because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am,
and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them

—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
