Making God’s will happen

“Your will be done!” That is easily prayed, but what exactly is it that we must do to move from words to deeds? The answer is fourfold and was given by the Chief Apostle in a recent divine service.

One name, two denominations: New Apostolic in South Africa

For more than a decade, there were two denominations that carried the name “New Apostolic Church” in South Africa. Between 1913 and 1926 Apostle Carl Georg Klibbe, who was the more senior of the two, and Apostle Schlaphoff each led one of the New Apostolic Churches. The case was finally settled in court.

A bell summons the faithful

This is not a congregation you happen to come across as you stroll along. In fact, at 4,000 metres it is about as close to heaven as you can get. But Pacharía has a lot more to offer: a Deacon well past retirement age and an ingenious way of calling the faithful to worship.

Education, a priority

Education is high on the agenda—also in the New Apostolic Church: from children to seniors, in our own congregation and outside of it, generally or very specifically. Here is a look at some of the things going on in the Church in the way of education.

Chief Apostle Schneider is asking us to keep our eyes peeled and to make a difference. The dignity of our neighbour is inviolable. Resources must be distributed fairly. This is what the Christian faith calls for.

A new chance: Masakhe gets children off the street

Love your neighbour as yourself! Gladly. But how do you do that in a place that is ruled by drugs and violence? A project in our Leiden Central church in South Africa shows how. It not only offers children a safe haven but also helps them with their education.

Berlin celebrates its reunification

Historical storytelling. This is what the ceremony was all about that took place at the New Apostolic Church in Berlin (Germany). It was about separation, reunification, and growing together. Video clips were used to take the audience on a journey through time and through a city with a unique fate.

Subscribing to fellowship with God

“Fellowship with God. What do you think when you hear this?” If you were to interview people in the street, it would elicit a number of responses such as church services, the celebration of Holy Communion, everyday experiences. Exactly! Christians experience their God in many different ways.
