The word “Apostle” derives from the Greek apóstolos which means “ambassador” in the New Testament.

Jesus Christ Himself directly gave His church only one ministry, namely the Apostle ministry. In His stead and by His commission, the Apostle ministry is to build the church and make redemption in Jesus Christ accessible to human beings who long for salvation.

Furthermore, the Apostle ministry is mandated to prepare believers for the return of Jesus Christ. The New Apostolic Church has more than 300 active Apostles worldwide, and currently eight in India.
