APOSTOLIC
Definition of "Apostolic"

The Apostle - together with the Prophet, the Pastor, the Teacher & the Evangelist - work towards bringing people & all things to the original, to maturity, wholeness, growing into Christ; the way it was in the Bible. Jesus functioned this way & the Spirit of God has stirred up a burning passion in the hearts of His Followers to do the same, before the Return of our Lord!

"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work." John 4:34

"Therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. I n Him the whole building is fitted together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord."
(Ephesians 2:19-21)

"But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.” (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Ephesians 4)

"By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ."
(1 Corinthians 3:10,11)

J
esus is the head of His global Church, the foundation on which we build & the focus of our life in God's Kingdom. He is our Chief Apostle & He is building His Church (Matthew 16:18), using the people gifts He chooses, to equip & activate each member of the Body of Christ. The Father sent Him & He sends His Chosen ones. The Word apostle, "apostolos" in the Greek means "sent one". The Lord sends people with a mandate, a commission to accomplish a certain mission, a specific task. Each ministry gift is unique, equal in value, but different in function & responsibility.
