Annual General Assembly
ANNUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF JESUS, INC.
PURPOSE OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The purpose of the General Assembly is to search the scriptures for additional light and knowledge on the teachings and duties of the church in the last days. In addition, to do anything else in harmony with the "Holy Scriptures" and administering the Governmental order of The Apostolic Church of Jesus, Inc., as seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us just as in the Assembly at Jerusalem,
Acts 15:25-28 (KJV) It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth. For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
All decisions are made according to the Bible.
