Modern Day Apostles and Prophets
We believe that Christ's gifts of apostles and prophets did not cease after the Book of Acts and continues today. (Ephesians 4:11)
Apostles and prophets are the foundation of the church, used to grow His Kingdom and equip the saints. (Ephesians 2:20-22) (Ephesians 4:11-12)
We believe that the gifts of prophets and apostles will continue until we reach fullness in Christ at His return. (Ephesians 4:13)
We believe that the Cannon of scripture is closed, and that while prophets and apostles may receive revelation regarding the Church today, it is not the same special revelation seen in scripture.
We believe that any revelation seen in dreams/visions/impressions or otherwise from God must be wholly derived from, neither adding to, nor contradicting scripture in anyway, or it is a false revelation.
We believe ascension apostles are not equivalent to the 12 apostles of the lamb, chosen by Christ to start His church, mentioned in the book of Revelation. (Revelation 21:14)
The issue of modern day apostles and prophets requires in depth study into the Bible. We encourage anyone with questions about this teaching to dig deep into the Word. Below are some reference to further explain why apostles and prophets exist today and are needed to build up Christ's Church.
