Sisters of Amazing Grace Apostolic Church
Certain jewelry and make-up are outward adorning and are not Godly. Jeremiah declared that it is all in vain.
"Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair, thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life." -Jeremiah 4:30 KJV
The Sisters of Amazing Grace Apostolic Church shall refrain from the following:
* Renting their face with paint (make-up is not to be used)
* Eye liner
* Eye shadow
* Color nail and toenail polish
The Apostle Peter said, "Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on the apparel."
Isaiah 3:18-23 says:
"In the day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and cauls and their round tires like the moon. The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, the bonnets, and ornaments of the legs and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, and the rings, and nose jewels....
The Sisters of Amazing Grace Apostolic Church are not to be arrayed in:
* Chains around the neck
* Chains around the wrist
* Ankle chains
* Painted fingernails or toenails
* ABSOLUTELY NO PIERECED EXTREMITIES OF ANY SORT
(Nose rings, eyebrow rings etc.)
The Apostle Paul certifies in 1 Timothy 2:9, “In like manner also that women adorn themselves in modest apparel."
Modest apparel is not designed to be that of a Flashy Nature nor is its purpose to be lustful or disdainful. Holy sisters are not for sale, nor are they harlots. Therefore, there is no reason for Holy sisters to send out that type of message through their apparel.
Holy Sisters of God are to adhere to the following:
* No tight dresses
* No tight skirts
* No deep cut necklines
* No deep cut backlines
* No straight apparel, hugging the woman's body
* No splits of any kind, or (if necessary) 2 to 3 inches only
* No stockings with any kind of design on them
* No skirts or dresses above the knees at any time
* Women are not to wear pants, long or short, in or out of the church at anytime.
**The standards and guidelines of this dress code are only mandatory for functioning or office holding members of this church.
Brothers of Amazing Grace Apostolic Church
"And that ye may put differences between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean"
-Leviticus 10:10 KJV
The world has become so wicked until men are wearing that which pertains to women. However, once a man repents of his sins and is baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, and receives the Holy Ghost, speaking in tongues according to the scriptures, he then does not desire to dress in the same manner as the sinners.
*Brethren of Amazing Grace Apostolic Church do not wear their hair long as does a woman.
"Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?" -1 Corinthians 11:14 KJV
*The Amazing Grace Apostolic Church Brethren are to wear a conservative hair cut. They are not to follow every "foolish" hairstyle as if they were of the world.

Courtship is not a part of the Apostles teaching as practiced in the traditional sense. Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines courtship as the wooing of one person by another; the period during which silicates favors, etc.; behavior in animals before and during mating.
I strongly employ the scripture found in 1 Corinthians 14:40, "Let all things be done decently and in order."
* Sisters are not to track or corner down a brother
* Brothers are not to use the House of God as a shopping center when seeking a wife.
* We do not tolerate the dating game approach to marriage
* Singles who intend to marry are advised to take their time, but I would have you without carefulness.
"He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord." 1 Corinthians 7:32 KJV
