The role of the apostle was central to how churches were built in the New Testament, yet many questions surround the apostolic today. To help bring understanding and greater clarity to the topic, we have put together both written and recorded resources that explore the heart of the apostolic, how they can help us to build healthy churches and what it means to walk in authentic apostolic partnership.
UNDERSTANDING CHURCH GOVERNANCE
Apostles come as servants of the church, not as masters of it.
When Christ began His ministry, the first thing He did was to recognise and raise up apostles. His intention was for them to be custodians of sound doctrine who could strengthen and work alongside elders to ensure that their churches remained healthy and were being built according to God’s pattern. This booklet answers common questions raised about the apostolic, including why apostles are still crucial today, how apostles are recognised, the different types of apostles, what their role is, how they should relate to local elders, and how to foster an authentic partnership with apostles and other churches.
