The Apostolic Communion of Churches began in 2003 with the birth of a congregation by the name of Christian Life Ministries International under the guidance of Pastor Thomas Henry, Jr. Pastor Thomas Henry, Jr. was the apostolic overseer to those churches and ministries that came under his apostolic mantle. As Christian Life Ministries International expanded into a fellowship it became known as the Christian Life Network of Churches and Ministries. Its reach soon extended around the globe. By October 2005, Pastor Henry was consecrated as the Bishop and Chief Apostle of Christian Life Ministries International, Inc.


In 2011, the Bishop and Executive Board of Christian Life Ministries International, Inc. changed the Christian Life Network of Churches and Ministries into a communion of churches under the name and style of the Apostolic Communion of Churches. This communion was to be a via media between Pentecostalism in the Protestant Reformation, and the catholic faith of the early apostolic and post-apostolic Church. Its ethos was and remains today to be a Convergence communion of churches, clergy, ministries and even businesses. The Apostolic Communion of Churches is headquartered in Metro Atlanta at the Christian Life Cathedral Ministries, Inc., the non-profit corporation of the Cathedral and Communion, and the mother of COAAB.



We are after primitive Christianity (Acts chapters 2 & 15), a Conciliar Church. We believe that the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments, contains all things necessary unto salvation and holiness. We believe in the Two Historic Creeds of the Church: Apostles' and Nicene. We have an episcopacy locally adapted to the needs of God's people which is inclusive of the apostleship. We believe in the two historic Sacraments: the Supper of the Lord and Baptism. We have a regular celebration of the Lord's Table, and believe in the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit. We are a synthesis of Evangelical Christianity and the Pentecostal/Charismatic experience, with an Anglican affinity.

In the Apostolic Communion of Churches, our members are benefitted by not only contending for the faith as properly understood, but they are also provided ordination, recognition, and affiliation. They are provided continuing education through COAAB, with conferences, seminars, and training sessions. ACC members are provided church growth and development resources, access to the ACC Apostolic Council, and so much more!
