The New Apostolic Church is an international, Christian Church. The foundation for its teachings is the Bible. It developed out of the Catholic-Apostolic Church in 1863 and since then is led by Apostles, as were the first Christian congregations. The return of Christ as well as vocation and brotherly love are central to the New Apostolic teaching.

The New Apostolic Church emphasises the concept of self-responsibility. Each individual is accountable for his or her actions before God. The Gospel and the values contained in the Ten Commandments are the foundation for guiding one´s actions.

The New Apostolic Church is politically neutral and independent, and is financed by voluntary member contributions.
