North Park Apostolic Church

San Diego Churches“The Apostolic Church is probably the only truly orthodox church. We teach the apostles doctrine from the original 12 apostles. We do not follow post-apostolic teachings,” said Bishop Joel David Trout. “For example, we are not a classic Trinitarian church, where there are three separate and co-equal, co-eternal persons. We believe there is only one God. He was manifest in the flesh as Jesus. We reject the idea that God the Father was revealed in Jesus. We reject people inserting language besides how God describes God. People don’t understand the trinity. It is extra-biblical.” Bishop Trout went on to tell me that “Catholics and Eastern Orthodox are an amalgamation of paganism with Christianity that was not part of the first-century church. If they want to continue the traditions of Peter, then do so. They have extra-biblical teachings.”

    Where did God say that you need to have a dress code for worship?

    By the sounds of it, their dress code is not the most critical thing for them to be worrying about…

    A. Preston,
    It’s not a dress code but to let people know what people wear so they are comfortable if they visit.

    No intention to be challenging or disagreeable -it just struck me that effective spiritual comfort and support is not necessarily associated with the comfort of societal norms. Luke 14:41 God Bless 🙂

    You are welcome to come as you are. You’re attire is not going to make a difference on what you receive from God. The comment that was made about the attire was just a statement of what most people choose to wear, not a commandment. That’s not what’s important. What is important, is, if you don’t know Jesus, come and build a relationship w/Jesus, because He loves you. Pray for us and we’ll pray for you.

    I have yet to visit Bishop Trout in California, but I have watched several of North Park’s services online. I have found them to be quite a blessing, and I compared what he preached to the Bible…he was on the money!

    My concern is that many churches have stopped preaching against sin and that there is only one way to be born again through Jesus. Satan has put so much confusion in the churches today it is no wonder people don’t go, plus sin is not being denounced from the pulpit because of political correctness. Nowadays, if I preach against sodomy, drunkeness, and adultery, I am considered a bigot and a prude; if I denounce the teachings of other religions and point folks to Jesus, I am branded a hatemonger, a cult leader, and intolerant. I would rather be called those things and be saved than to become like Billy Graham, who is so liberal he tells folks they can go to heaven without Jesus.

    I thank God for brave men like Bishop Trout who will preach the sound word of God in this present generation!

    I’m very saddened by what happened to Bishop Trout. God’s use of Trout as a vessel was amazing and I will always remember and respect his teachings, because in the end of it all, it was God’s Word coming out of his mouth. I’ve learned that we are all susceptible to fall out the grace of God and that we should be diligent.

    To those of you that do not know and I don’t know why NPAC Members on this board hasn’t just came out with the Truth. Bishop Joel David Trout and The Former First Lady Talesa are no longer married.

    Bishop Trout has remarried someone else and from what I learned on the INTERNET has started another church called something along the lines of World Redemption – just goggle his name.

    I had a terrible experience in an Apostolic Church!

    Apostolic churches are an occult. Don’t be fooled. Yes they know the word of God but they are cunning and twist it to suite their needs for control of their members. Lots of shady activity there. Now Bishop Trout seems to be a good man but he has fallin several times. Apostolics think that they are the chosen. That they are better than any other religion. When the role is called up yonder there will be a lot of disappointed Apostolics in hell for their judgementalism, sexual abuse of members, psychological abuse, and so many other things that are happening in those churches. Pray for these people because they have truly got the whole thing wrong. Some of the members don’t even study the word. They just take the Apostolic pastors word for it. Trusting blindly. Pray for them they are truly either the beginning of an occult or quickly on their way.

    Our vision so to reach whole andhrapradesh through church plating. We have an vision to buy 400 sq.yards which costs $ 400000 for land as well as construction.Which seating capacity 2000 beleivers.We are looking for good sposnors those who want to sponsor for this great task.

    We are running an “Gospel Divine Vision Ministries” since 1998 with a vision an mission for save souls by promoting International Evangelists for india through thier projects, crusades, preaching in the form of every media oepnair crusades those who have vision for india or those who not yet opened proper channel to preach in crusades for them we are working our level best to bring them to India if they like to host an crusades for them we have dedicated to coordinate and promote them.

    In fact we are hindus with strong religious background family visiting temples, breaking coconuts and performing poojas as order of the day and to have a peace life. After some time and all of sudden several problems have creeped into our family which could not be solved by them resulting in dwindling of peace in the family. To avoid these problems such as (frequently accidents, falling sick, debts etc) and peace to be restored we have visited some historical temples and offered poojas and vrathams and all were proved waste. We were asked to go to Famous temples so all our problems would be settled and lot of peace restored without fail my daddy friends said in his office known as Bharat Heavy electricals Limited.
    To get rid of these problems some how and insisted by some of the people around us we have gone to temples. While we are proceeding to temples vigorously a feeble voice was heard My my Mother very clearly why you are worshipping these are only stones, nothing is there in that it was said.based on the voice heard by My mother on temple must be from true God who crucified and killed on the cross for our sins of the people he is Jesus and nothing else. According all family members repented in our hearts and received jesus as our personal saviour and God and had baptism on 10-2-1991.
    After coming to Jesus our Lord God: After baptism our problems cited above were got settled peacefully and had become the follower of Jesus, doing evangelism, preaching Gospel on the roads/streets by challenging Jesus only true God. As we were doing so on one fine morning one Big iron hook double sided one attached to an iron rod was descending from upwards in an hanging position when my daddy( Pastor.Sathyam) was on bed looking up around on 1-3-1997 at 7.00 Am. He was trembled to see with fear that what would happen. Accordingly it has come to him was there in front of his bed in hanging position atleast 10 seconds then disappeared.
    On meditations further to know about the cause of the vision it has been revealed later on Jeremiah 1:10/2 Cor 10:5,6,7) a new ministry like “Gospel Divine Vision Ministries appeared in front of my Daddy( Pastor Sathym) in a miraculous way. As such the above ministry is now functioning effectively by conducting Conventions , Revival meetings, Indorr/Outdoor evangelism, Feeding the poor, Children Homes, school , helping the poor, digging borewells,Distributing Gospel Message tracts. To Go forward we are unable to met all fiancial needs for all Gods Services.

    After receiving Jesus as our personal saviour in the year 1991 i used to pray every day, i run to church first and clean the church, singing songs , beating drums it became my love for christ days passing on i join in class tenth i stopped praying i fallen in sin by teasing girl with my friends when i am teasing girls i was caught up by some men wantedly they have beaten i suppose to die but god has saved my life for my mischievous i have experience like this i made god to cry becauese of me and because of me my parents got bad name in society because i have not baptised.

    Only God keeps the records, would YOU like to POST the TRUTH of why Bishop Joel Trout is no longer the Pastor of NPAC. No one is touching anything, people from across the world FAITHFULLY paid tithes and offerings to NPAC when he was the Pastor and now that he’s no longer there – no one has ANYTHING to say. I will always have much love for Bishop Joel David Trout and I’m quite certain God will use him in a Mighty way like never before, however ……

    To hurt by apostolics,

    Let me be the first to say I apologize that you were hurt by apostolics and what the hurt has caused you to think about us as a people. It is never anyone’s intention to cause hurt to anyone but it does happen. We hurt Christ everyday by not living the way he has instructed us to live.

    Hebrews 6

    4] For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

    [5] And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

    *FOCUS is on the latter of verse 6 and it says

    If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing the crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Meaning everytime we fall back into sin we tell God what you did on Calvary didn’t do anything to help us as individuals.

    God never takes is out on us when we go back and do the things that he called us out of. He never takes his love or denies us what he promised to us. His grace and his mercy is always following us even when we don’t want to be followed. He is protecting us even when we don’t want his protection.

    And you know the thing about is, you will probably hurt me with your response…that’s the chance that I take in writing this to you and all others who feel they have been mistreated by the people of God. If you knew me as an individual you would know that my apology is truly sincere and that my hope and prayer for you is to find it in your heart to forgive us.

    Why is it that people need to know about what happen at NPAC. If you really need to know about this church you should have been there when it all happen, so since you were not there…… is not your business. Mind your on own affairs. This is the reason the JUST as well as the UNJUST are not bless. We are not perfect, we all have issues, and if YOU don’t, pray for the rest of us. That’s what God want us to do……Forgive. If it’s wrong God will make it right.

  • It Is MY Business What Happened

    October 19, 2008, 8:13 pm

    Because I WAS a FAITHful MEMBER and TITHER for many years before I and so many others left. It’s not that so many people NEED to know what happened because the general public isn’t entitled to know what happened ESPECIALLY if they weren’t ever affiliated or associated with NPAC. But my family and I remained DILIGENT and LOYAL in the ministries we served in and to North Park Apostolic Church. Silence speaks for itself. Certain leadership that served under Pastor Trout remains at North Park Apostolic Church and they’ve been exalted, not to mention NPAC no longer being at the Concourse, but now in Lemon Grove. Yes, EVERYONE makes mistakes and none of us are free from sin or errors, but MANY people left NPAC when Bishop Trout was the Pastor because WE were subjected to things that weren’t aligned with God. I wish nothing but the best for Pastor Trout, but his errors should not be hushed from those that did what was required of them when he was The Angel Of The Church. I was healed and delivered under Pastor Trout’s teaching, and we have nothing but much LOVE for him and it saddened our spirits tremendously when my fellow Saints advised me of the situation, however ….. I wasn’t surprised when I recall circumstances that I witnessed. YES, I was a MEMBER of NPAC for many years before I left and really …. is it difficult for one to figure out what happened even if I wasn’t told by Saints that still attend NPAC.

    Hello everyone,I just want to say how very sorry Iam to have heard about what happend there @ that GREAT Ministry,the North Park Apostolic Church. I really don’t care what the Bishop did and how bad it was, because Bishop Trout will always be one of my favorite preachers of all time, again I don’t know how the process was handeld there @ the Park regarding the spiritual disciplining of the Bishop, and even though I still wished to God that he remained the Senior Pastor and was just sat down for a period of time instead of being permanately removed,should he hadn’t decided to leave.what ever he may have done that wasn’t pleasing in the Lord’s sight, none of us here on this message board can gossip about anyone (for those that did) because if the Lord would mark sin throughout our lives,none of us would be able to stand, some of us would’ve probably had heart attacks or strokes and then dropped dead if the Lord would’ve allowed others to see our lives behind closed doors. However I felt it was so very wrong how the mention of his name in every respect was removed from the website. He still could’ve at least been honored for taking that great ministry to the level that he did while him and Lady Trout served there. I also went on the website last week and noticed that the Park (NPAC) is no longer in the Concourse and I’m so very sorry to hear that but North Park, let me tell y’all something, Don’t You all under any circumstances what so ever even think about giving up, the devil is celebrating about the unfortunate events that occurred, But I want you all to know that Northpark is a very tough and anointed ministry. Just continue to hold on and keep the faith and the fire because I truly believe that God will shut up all of the haters. Again I’m sorry that things had to turn out this way, don’t blame the Bishop for anything. Over the course of my young life,God has been teaching me personally that,there are just some things that will happen in life unexpectedly that we may not ever understand and we just have to trust him. So Northpark, just trust the Lord. I truly believe the Lord’s word all the way and he show nuuff don’t lie so keep holding on and atay just like you are. God is going to take you guys through I truly believe that he will. To Bishop Brooks and Pastor Garcia, I’m praying for you guys in a special way don’t worry about the haters at all, the Lord himself shall take care of them if they don’t get right.

    To Bishop Trout I don’t know you at all but I just want you to know that you’re in my prayers, I don’t even care nothing about anything you did and will not even try to find out either. You’re most certainly alright with me. God Bless you sir. and May the Lord continue to bless that Great Great Great Ministry, the North Park Apostolic Church.

    Is Bishop Trout and Pastor Eddie Trout (x South African Pastor now residing in USA) the same person?

  • Carla Grijalva'Brown

    March 2, 2009, 8:25 pm

    In learning that Pastor trout no longer preaches the word at North Park has me very sad. I come from a long line of true North Park worshipers.

    I am well aware of all of the circumstances and we are all human and no human is perfect. The Devil works 24 hours a day to catch us slipping and he knows how and when to slither right on in.

    Pastor Trout, His wife Talisa and their Children, I hope are doing well and I wish them only the best in life and thank them for so many years of healing.

    Pastor Trout, His Father Trout, and their wives not only held church, man it was a hospital, that healed everyone who walked in, souls being saved left and right. I remember bums off the street being saved when we were at the University church.

    Let us just keep them in prayer and stop being so judgemental of one another. It stresses the body out.

    Smile. God Loves you
