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

Re: Based on the offering, why are they closing all these congregations?  (reply)
$780MM gets drained pretty quickly when (a) you send a big chunk of it to Africa right away (b) you invest in real estate in Detroit that ends up being worthless

it will "contain a timeline of each congregation" will it include the "closing date" for them all as well since i'd guess that at this point there have been as many closings as openings.

Re: Museum of the New Apostolic Church USA?  (reply)
that's odd, i thought every congregation was a 'museum' - hardly any life left in any of them. maybe they could dig up some of those bodies/ashes behind Astoria and put them in glass like you see throughout Italy in the Catholic churches.
