Doctrine and Faith

The Apostolic Christian Church earnestly seeks to interpret the Bible literally. The teachings of Jesus Christ and His Apostles serve as the foundation of the doctrine of the church. It is the sincere intent of its members to believe in and live by the Word of God in all aspects of their lives.

The church consists of approximately 90 congregations in the United States, Japan, Mexico and Canada. The church also conducts worship services on many college campuses in several states in order to teach the Holy Scriptures to persons attending universities.

The church is also engaged in many activities to benefit mankind, all in the name of Christ. An organization called Apostolic Christian World Relief collects both financial and material aid for distribution to persons in need on a worldwide basis. It also makes distributions through a variety of approved organizations. There is growing mission work in Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico, including
development of an orphanage in Magdalena, Mexico.

A national Missionary Committee has oversight of the church's special programs to spread God's Word. Thousands of Bibles are distributed annually. Individuals, sound in faith, are sent on special assignment to support the mission arm of the church. New churches are established and supported both within and outside of the United States.

The church operates nursing homes for the elderly in several states, a Home for the Handicapped in Morton, Illinois along with several satellite residential facilities, and a Children's Home in Leo, Indiana. These specialized programs provide physical, emotional and spiritual support for handicapped persons and needy children and their families.


The major intent of the church is to preach, teach and live the gospel of Christ so that others also will hear and respond affirmatively to this message of salvation--and someday, by God's marvelous grace, enter into the portal of heaven.
