Based in the Chicago area, Apostles of Rock was founded as an outreach "to positively influence the lives of people through the sharing of the gospel." As the musical element of a ten year old ministry effort, Apostles of Rock are experienced musicians who have developed a powerful sound that emphasizes their direct message. Their musical program strives to network with community based groups to organize absolutely free of charge events at youth centers, nursing homes, parks, schools, block parties, business centers, institutions, and correctional facilities. Apostles of Rock "are concerned with the outcasts of society, the so-called throwaway people. By ministering to these hurting people we strive to bring them hope, joy, and peace."
The "Nine-Pointed Star" symbolizes the nine fruits of the Spirit listed in the Epistle to the Galatians found in the New Testament of the Bible. This star is sometimes shown with the Latin initials for each of the fruits (charitas, gaudium, pax, longanimitas, benignitas, bonitus, fides, mansuetudo and continentia) placed within the points.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (NIV)
