ABOUT THE COMMUNION
Having accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and acknowledging Him as God in the flesh, and recognizing that certain duties can be performed best in fellowship, we covenant to walk together as members of Christ’s Church in brotherly love. We believe it to be the mission of the Communion to proclaim His Gospel to all mankind and to strive for the realization of the Kingdom of God.
This communion of churches—the Apostolic Communion of Churches—is a Convergence communion. What that means is that we are sacramental, evangelical, and Spirit-filled. We are governed by our Archbishop and Chief Apostle, Apostolic Council, and House of Bishops. All bishops and apostles are a part of the House of Bishops.
Our founder is Archbishop Thomas Henry Jr. He has written books, preached all over the country and a spiritual father to many. God has preordained him a modern-day apostle and prophet of the 20th and 21st centuries. His prophesies are accurate. He has sanctioned bishops, apostles, ministries, and reformations around the world through the COAAB (Congress of Apostles and Bishops).
The Apostolic Communion of Churches stands on the following principles: being a Bible-believing and Spirit-filled communion of churches, being a place where the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are freely expressed for the edification of the believers, and being a place of prophetic education and spiritual growth.
Among those beliefs which form our principles, we would underscore and commend the following, primarily: a belief in the Sovereignty of God, a high view of Holy Scripture in affirming the critical importance of preaching, public reading of the Word of God, and personal Bible study, the use of the Nicene Creed as a statement of faith and the Apostles’ Creed as a baptismal creed, a belief in the regular celebration of the sacraments of the Gospel (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, also called Holy Communion or the Eucharist), a high view of the Church and a need for the people of God to gather together often for the worship of God and listening to His Holy Word, the doctrine of saving grace by faith, the real spiritual presence of Christ in the Eucharist and a baptism that is effectual, the real presence and work of the Holy Spirit through gifts and signs as imparted to believers for service and witness, and a belief in the supporting of ministry through the giving of tithes and offerings.
