Question: Is it acceptable in the Apostolic belief to participate in the devils holiday WITH the world in 'trick or treat'? Is it also Apostolic/ acceptable to attend Sunday services (Oct. 30) wearing costume and leading praise and worship?

Answer: The apostolic faith is not monolithic; that is, not all apostolic churches see everything the same way. We would not consider trick or treating acceptable for apostolic young people, and we would not allow someone in a Halloween costum to lead worship. But in the absense of clear Scriptural prohibitions, we are not willing to stand in judgment of others.
