History: The origins of the church can be traced to the Day of Pentecost in A.D. 32. On that day, Simon Peter gave the first sermon concerning salvation. After he had convinced the crowd concerning the Messiahship of Jesus, they asked the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? In response to their inquiry, Peter told them: Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. In obedience to this command, three thousand people were added to the church that day. From Jerusalem, the message spread throughout the entire world. At the close of the second century, it is estimated that half the worlds population were Christians. The beginnings of the modern Pentecostal revival can be traced to Topeka, Kansas, where in the early hours of January 1, 1901, Agnes N. Ozman became the first person in the twentieth century to receive the Holy Ghost. Under the leadership of Charles H. Parham, the revival spread to Missouri and Texas, where a young minister named W. J. Seymour heard the message. He carried this message to Los Angeles, California. On April 9, 1906 he preached his first message at 214 North Bonnie Brae Street. The revival that began there would soon move to a mission at 312 Azusa Street. From this location, the Pentecostal message would spread around the world. In October 1910, the Pentecostal message reached Dunklin County. Bro. John Davis, Sis. Salome, and Sis. Johnson from Thayer, Missouri preached the message in Senath. A great revival began in that city and spread to the entire country side. Bro. Taylor received the Holy Ghost in Austin School, and became the first person in Dunklin County in the twentieth century to receive the promise. Sis. DePriest held a tent revival at Cocklebur Hollow and spread the message to Kennett. In 1913, at the Worldwide campmeeting in Arroyo Seco, California, R. E. McAlister remarked in a message that the only method of baptism used in the days of the Apostles was in the name of Jesus. A great controversy began as many searched the Scriptures. On April 15, 1914, on East First Street in Belvedere, California, Frank J. Ewart preached the first Oneness message west of the Mississippi River. Shortly afterward, evangelists began to spread the message eastward. The message arrived in Dunklin County shortly afterward, and Cleve Curly was the first minister to be rebaptized. Shortly afterward Bible Grove Church became the first established Oneness church in Dunklin County. In the early 1920s, a group of Apostolics began holding house meetings in Kennett, under the leadership of Rev. W. S. Fitzpatrick. In 1927, the Apostolics cleaned out a cow shed at Bragdon Levee, down from Frays Mill, and began holding services there. Randol Street Church "Cockelburr Hollow"In 1930, the First Assembly of God moved to their current location on Kennett Street and sold their old building at 205 Randol Street to the Apostolics for $100. The congregation moved into the new building and quickly set about organizing themselves. In that same year, they were organized as the Apostolic Assembly of Jesus Christ Church. W. S. Fitzpatrick was elected pastor under the constitution that was adopted, and V. H. Davidson, C. W. Davis, and Ed Holifield were elected deacons.J. A. Nochta G. B. JohnsonRevival broke out at the new location, which was called Cocklebur Hollow. The church grew steadily until tragedy struck in 1934. Pastor Fitzpatrick passed away, leaving the young congregation without a leader. At this time, G. B. Johnson became the interim pastor until the congregation could elect a new pastor. Later that year, the church elected a young J. A. Nochta to be their pastor. Pastor Nochta was noted as being a fiery preacher and a very likeable person. After pastoring only a few short years, Pastor Nochta r
