A diplomat adept in dealing with red tape

Deputy of the Chief Apostle, his right hand in handling official matters, and a man for all seasons. But he was far more than a bureaucrat: Apostle Arthur Landgraf. Tomorrow he would have been 130 years old.

Joyful, expectant, full of hope

The year 2018 has more to offer than work, the daily grind, and to-do lists. Many congregations are preparing for small and big events. There is a hive of activity. And there is joy, enthusiasm, and hope—something that is quite becoming to Christians.

There is a need for solidarity among churches

What exactly is church? Only the building? Only a certain denomination? An organisation? There are different definitions. Paul speaks of a “body of Christ” in Scripture. Following are some thoughts from the Chief Apostle on this subject.

Children are a heritage from the Lord

The country does not need mini-theologians nor saints, but young Christians who have a good relationship with Jesus and are excited about God. And this is what parents and teachers want for their children.

Destroying the works of the devil with Jesus

Doubt, lies, rebellion, fear, discord, greed, and death … Everything that comes from the evil one separates man from his fellow human beings and from God. But Jesus provided an antidote long ago. All we have to do is listen to Him.

Being a Christian means following Christ

New year, new luck. Wouldn’t that be nice? Unfortunately, not all can tune into this. Many carry their old worries and cares over into the new year—and remain faithful to God in spite of them. Why? Because they look ahead with hope.

The source of comfort, joy, and strength

What helps when you feel sad and weak? To have someone at your side who can help you. To have someone at your side for whom nothing is impossible is even better. Help from a divine service by the Chief Apostle.

Excellent prospects

Good news from God: He allows human beings a glance into the future. What this means for us today is something we can learn from the past. Follow us on a journey through time with the Chief Apostle.

The living and the dead: a fellowship in Christ

The New Apostolic Church’s construct of the departed raises questions. In what condition do the dead find themselves? Why do they need the sacraments? And does all of this not have something to do with Spiritism? Answers to an unusual doctrine.

Not all New Apostolic Christians have access to the Internet. But even those who do not will receive the Chief Apostle’s New Year message, which he proclaimed yesterday. And not only in divine service.
