The Apostolic Faith was established by Charles F. Parham in 1899.  Parham was a holiness revivalist who is known for establishing the Bethel Healing Home in Topeka KS, where Agnes Ozman is reported to have spoken in tongues on Jan 1, 1901. From Topeka, Parham started the Apostolic Faith Movement, a Pentecostal movement that taught that speaking in tongues was the sign of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit.  A paper with the same name was started by William J. Seymour in 1906. Seymour learned of the Pentecostal baptism from Parham and started the Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles, CA.

Parharm's Apostolic Faith newspaper was distributed across the United States and documented the early teachings and testimonies of the Pentecostal Movement. Early issues of the Apostolic Faith are available on Consortium of Pentecostal Archives. After ceasing from 1916-1925, Parham resumed publication of Apostolic Faith until he dies in Jan 1929.  

This is a collection of many those later issues (1925-1929), which are not currently freely available to the public and are held in the Holy Spirit Research Center at Oral Roberts University.
