Pastor Anthony L. Bell was baptized, saved, and filled with the Holy Ghost in February 1998. He was a faithful member of Ebenezer Apostolic Assembly under the Pastorate of Elder Robert N. Palmer. Pastor Bell attended Ebenezer Apostolic Assembly for 10 years, in which time, he served as the adult Sunday school teacher; as chairman of the local brotherhood; devoted trustee; and licensed minister through the Ohio District Council of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. (P.A.W., Inc.)
Pastor Bell's desire to learn more of His Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, led him to Berean Bible School in Akron, Ohio. Through his studies at Berean, Pastor Bell received his Bachelor's Degree in Theology. After obtaining his degree, he was later voted in as the assistant secretary of the Northeast Region Brotherhood Auxiliary (NERBA) of the Ohio District Council (ODC). From this appointment, Pastor Bell went on to serve in the capacities of secretary, assistant treasurer, treasurer, and current vice chairman.
In 2008, the Lord called Pastor Bell to open the doors of New Kingdom Apostolic Faith Church. When the church opened its doors, Pastor preached, taught, and sang to the glory of the Lord with three faithful members. Since that time, the Lord has allowed New Kingdom to grow physically and spiritually; and as long as the doors of our assembly are opened, Pastor Bell has promised the Lord that we will "seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness..." according to Matthew 6:33.
