Welcome to the Abyssinian Apostolic Church

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church is a Sacramental + Charismatic (Pentecostal) + Evangelical church promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and adhering to and acknowledging the faith and witness of the one, holy, universal, and apostolic church throughout the world.

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church is an intricate, inter-woven tapestry of ministry. We believe in, practice and promote the power of prayer, praise, worship and unity within the whole of the Church. We seek to provide a platform of cultural and spiritual relevance and understanding in expressions of praise and worship.

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church affirms its belief in the following:

  • We affirm that the Decalogue (Ten Commandments) is the rule of moral law.
  • We affirm the doctrine and faith delivered by Jesus Christ to His Apostles.
  • We affirm both men and women as Clergy of the one, holy, universal and apostolic Church.
  • We affirm that Apostolic Succession of Clergy is necessary for the proper and authoritative administration of the Holy Sacraments of the Church.
  • We affirm the Seven (7) Sacraments of the Holy Church (Baptism by immersion, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Holy Matrimony, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders).

We are an international ministry of the Kingdom of God, professing and proclaiming faith and salvation through Jesus Christ. It is the mission and ministry of this Church to actively seek and restore the lost sheep of the world. We accept all who accept and believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and fellowship with those who accept and believe on Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. We join in unity together for one purpose, which is the worship and praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
