The Congress of Apostles and Bishops is a bringing ORDER, INTEGRITY, and ACCOUNT-ABILITY back into the church. Join us this year in September as we work to change the FACE of Pentecostal Christianity by bringing order in the midst of chaos.
C.O.A.A.B. works to foster relationship between its members by encouraging its members to fellowship with C.O.A.A.B. members in their area.
C.O.A.A.B. is a reformed catholic institution confessing the faith in the ONE Triune God, confessing two Catholic Creeds, Sacraments that communicate grace, The Bible of the Old and New Testament to be the word of God and contain all things necessary unto salvation, we confess 4 councils and the Christological formations of the last 3 as far as they are agreeable with Holy Writ.
We are NOT Roman, Anglican or Orthodox. We are, however, a Living Expression of the Church Universal.
The WORK of the Congress is focus on the following areas:
- To further the reach of the Kingdom of God by preaching the Gospel of Christ and celebration of the sacraments of our redemption;
- To provide for unity and accountability for apostles and bishops;
