This is an UNOFFICIAL link site and message board for english speaking “open” discussions on the New Apostolic Church (NAC). We want this to be a neutral site for all opinions and hope that all participants recognize and respect opposing view points and are above profanity.

Unlike the official site, where everything is in oneness, over here various participants have strong opinions which may not agree with the official NAC party line, be warned. Open discussion means “within the confines of any rules that the Founder and Admins have deemed necessary to promote the stated purpose of this board”.

Thank you



The NACBoard Prophet's Prognostications For U.S. New Apostolic Church Closings

"Any congregations* within, say 30 minutes (ignoring traffic) of each other, will be consolidated. Within 3 years or less. Any smaller congregations consolidated up to 60 minute radius, if lacking ministers (and $). Within 5 years... In seven years, the remote locals will be gone."

Re: NAC Extremist (reply)
I know of one young woman who got a tattoo of the number of her favorite song in the NAC Hymnal (I forget what one it was). The newest hymnal came out not too long afterwards, and of course the song number changed.

Re: Apostle chooses to stay home instead of going to service? (reply)
Is there any scenario where this might be acceptable?  Say, if he was traveling out of town the following day for a 4-5 day trip and was going to hold a service on Thursday?

For as long as I remember, we had heard that Sundays and Wednesday services were equal, when it was obvious they were not.  Much more emphasis was placed on Sundays by the administration, ministers, members, etc.  Now, after a few years...
