THE APOSTOLIC

Apostles were a vital part of building healthy churches in the early church, which was “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets” (Ephesians 2:20). Yet today, questions abound around their importance and the need for the apostolic.

We have therefore compiled both written and recorded resources that address the heart of it by providing biblical reasoning in favour of the apostolic, how integral apostles are to building healthy, New Testament churches, and what walking in a trusting partnership looks like.

RecOMMENDED BOOK

The Ministry & Role of the Apostle

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.
