Question: Do apostles still exist? Are you all apostles of sorts and those who follow you, considering your doctrine is like the doctrine once delivered to the saints? It seems to me that just about every other apostolic church is way off base because you all really shed light on building a church without spot or blemish. Others teach only bits and pieces of truth.

Answer: The word 'apostle' simply means 'one sent on a mission.' The primary work of an apostle is getting something started, whether it be a local assembly, a ministry, or a specific practice. In this sense, there are many apostles at work in the world today. We believe that there are many apostolic churches teaching the whole counsel of God, and you should be careful judging a world-wide movement based on your limited experience.
