Resolutions of the Communion of Christian Churches
Recognizing:
1. The present division of the Lord’s Church into ecclesiastical denominations is subnormal and blatantly contradicts the direct commands of our great Head.
2. The Lord has used men and movements throughout history to restore foundations, reform His Church, and establish His Kingdom purposes in the earth.

Believing:
1. The Lord is reviving His work in the earth, restoring the apostolic foundations and reforming the Church in order that the Church of Jesus Christ might function governmentally as a Holy Nation and Kingdom of Priests in every city and nation throughout the world.
2. The Lord is restoring apostles and joining them together, along with the ministers and churches they represent, in the fellowship or communion of apostles to form the Holy Apostolic Church throughout the earth.
3. Many good and faithful servants of the Lord have been moved by the Spirit of the Lord to leave former associations and ecclesiastical homes, but have not been able to find membership in a communion or ecclesiastical body compatible with the moving of the Spirit within their hearts or with their Scriptural convictions.
Desiring to be part of such a movement, we, the participating apostles, elders (ruling pastors or bishops) together with the ministers and bodies of believers we represent, resolve to join together in the Spirit and will of God to form the Communion of Christian Churches in order:

1. To provide a new wineskin or ecclesiastical home for ministers and churches whose hearts long to see the fellowship or communion of the apostles restored and the Church of Jesus Christ revived, restored, and reformed, so that it might function as One Holy Apostolic Church (a Holy Nation and Kingdom of Priests) and shine as a bright light in cities and nations throughout the earth, so that the nations might come to the Lord.
2. To develop apostolic and prophetic strategies and function together globally, regionally, nationally, and locally to implement those strategies and mobilize the resources needed to fulfill the apostolic and prophetic mandate and accomplish the Lord’s Kingdom purpose to transform cities and nations and fill the earth with the glory of the sons and daughters of God.
3. To work together with members of the Communion of Christian Churches and with ministers and churches of other streams to restore the fellowship or communion of apostles Jesus Himself established in the beginning and develop international, regional, national, and local councils, conferences, synods, and presbyteries of apostles and elders, enabling them to work together at all geographic levels to establish Christ’s Kingdom, build His Church, transform cities and nations, and model for the whole body of Christ what the Church of Jesus Christ could be if all it’s diverse streams were to flow together as one great river.
Therefore by God’s grace, we hereby covenant together and constitute ourselves the Communion of Christian Churches
(Please note: the terms elder, pastor, and bishop, were used interchangeably by the apostles and elders in the bible, Acts 20:17,28 and I Peter 5:1-3, and are therefore used in this same way by the Communion of Christian Churches We do not use the terms elder or bishop in an episcopal sense.)

ARTICLE V: ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION

ARTICLE VI: STEWARDSHIP

Section 1. The Authority of Scripture:

1. The members of the CCC believe the Holy Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God for establishing doctrine, correction, and instruction in righteousness. We recognize the Canon of Holy Scripture as the final rule of faith and practice, and that it must be understood by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

2. Furthermore, while the entire Bible is profitable for instruction in the Christian life and the ordering of Church life, we believe the New Testament contains the testimony of the original apostles of the Lamb and the first ascension-gift apostles to Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is the ultimate measure, or canon of Apostolic faith and practice.

The Old Testament promises, shadows and types, and the prophets of Israel must be understood in light of their New Testament fulfillment in Christ Jesus the Lord. The revelation of the mysteries of Christ, the living Word of God, was entrusted by Jesus to His apostles, and through them to the Church throughout the ages as an everlasting foundation. That revelation has been preserved for the saints in the Canon of the New Testament. (Matthew 13:11, 16-17, 16:19, 28:19, 20, Luke 24:27, 44-45, Acts 1:3, 2:42, 1 Peter 1:10,--12, 2 Peter 1:16, John 1: 14, 21:24-25, 1 John 1:1-4, Luke 1:1-4, Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:1-4, Romans 16:25-26, 1 Corinthians 2:1-7, 10, 3:10-11, 4:1-2,15:1-11, 2 Corinthians 1:18-21, 11:4-6, Galatians 1:11-12, 2:2-10, Ephesians 2:20, 3:1-12)

The history of the Church and its present doctrines and practices must continually be evaluated and adjusted in the clear light of the testimony of Jesus given by the apostles and preserved in the New Testament Scriptures as the Canon of Apostolic faith and practice!

3. We believe the present condition of the body of Christ has changed dramatically from the Apostolic Era. The first century Church was truly, as the creeds declare, One Holy Catholic (Global) Apostolic Church. While there was diversity of expression and culture, all the believers in the early Church had the same faith, the same experience of the Holy Spirit, the same rule or instruction among them, and the same structure and governmental order.


Today, the faith of the apostles has been watered down and corrupted, the experience of the saints modified and distorted by religion, the instruction, the structure and the governmental order subverted and changed by the doctrines and traditions of men. As a result the Church has been fragmented and divided into thousands of different sects or denominations all in competition and conflict with each other. There are myriads of different doctrinal views, gospels, and governmental structures. As one Bishop has astutely observed, “Christ’s Kingdom has been hi-jacked by religion and His Church divided into a host of denominations.”

However, we believe God is pouring out His Spirit upon churches and nations. The Lord Jesus is reviving His work in the earth and restoring the foundations of His Church. We believe those foundations are apostolic foundations and are to be found in the pages of the New Testament as revealed and illuminated by the present work of the Holy Spirit. We believe the Church of the Twenty-first Century must rediscover the foundations of the Apostolic Church.

We believe the Church of the Twenty-first Century must rediscover the foundations of the Apostolic Church.

ARTICLE IX: ESSENTIAL BUILDING PRINCIPLES

1. Recognizing that Jesus is the Christ, we believe that we should build Christologically! We should build in terms of His Kingship, His Headship, His resurrection life and the life of the Holy Spirit, His divine commandments and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, His governmental order and rule.

2. Recognizing that the New Covenant has been established in the body and blood of Jesus Christ and the Lord Himself is the covenant, we believe we should build covenantally. We should recognize and honor the Lord’s placement in the body, not only our own placement, but the placement of others. We should recognize valid spiritual connections, submit to one another in the will of God, and relate to each other in the New Covenant (in the Lord) or in the way the Lord commands us to treat each other.

3. We believe that we must build pneumatically and charismatically. We must not only recognize and honor the Holy Spirit’s placement in an allotment of believers as part of the larger family of God, we must also recognize the gifts, callings, and anointings of God.

4. We believe that we must build geographically as well as relationally. We must not only recognize divine connections and covenant relationships that have been ordained of God, we must also recognize His geographic appointments and governmental spheres of authority. (The purpose of true spiritual fatherhood is raise up mature sons and daughters unto God who are able to recognize and to relate properly to the government of God where ever they find it.)

5. We believe that we must build trans-generationally. We must recognize the gifts and callings of those coming behind us, cultivate those gifts, and make room for them to operate in our midst so that they might fully fulfill their destinies and callings in Christ’s Kingdom.

ARTICLE X: VALUES

The Communion of Christian Churches places great value in our relationships with each other and our labor together in the Lord.

ARTICLE XI: CHURCH DISCIPLINE  

Each apostolic ministry and its network of related ministries and churches shall be responsible for the discipline and correction of the ministries and churches under their respective jurisdictions in accordance with clearly defined biblical standards and requirements and with the spirit and principles of the Constitution of the Communion of Christian Churches with the ultimate purpose of restoration and redemption.

2. The ultimate goal of Church discipline should be the restoration and salvation of the offending ministry, congregation, or church member and the peace, good order, and well being of the corporate body.

3. Each apostolic ministry and its related network of ministries and churches should provide a valid structure of appeal within their respective spheres of jurisdiction. Wherever possible the principle of containment should apply: a problem or difficulty should be handled as near to the problem as possible, appealing as necessary to the next level of authority until the problem has been resolved.

4. The various networks of ministries and churches within the Communion of Christian Churches shall voluntarily work together with each other at various levels of jurisdiction: local, regional, national, and international to establish the appropriate appeal courts to help adjudicate disputes and differences within the communion and its related ministries and networks in order to ensure righteous judgment and proper discipline and good order.

5. The General Council or Synod shall be responsible to discipline its members and resolve disputes in accordance with biblical standards of discipline and in harmony with the spirit and principles of the Constitution of the Communion of Christian Churches s. The General Council shall be the final court of appeal within the communion.

6. Should it become necessary to remove a senior pastor from his office, great care should be taken to protect, not only the future well-being of the congregation, but as far as is possible the well-being and future usefulness of the minister in question. Such action must not be undertaken by the direct action of the congregation lest judgment be released upon them. Instead, it is the responsibility of the proper apostolic overseer, in council with the appropriate network ministers and elders.

We covenant together as a communion of apostles, elders, ministers, and churches, that under the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit and through God's grace, to develop apostolic and prophetic strategies, Kingdom initiatives, structures, and ministry services that will enhance, enlarge, and strengthen the individual and diverse apostolic ministries with their related networks of ministers and churches, enabling them to fulfill their respective mandates and missions.

We further covenant together as a communion to develop Kingdom strategies, structures, and services that will enable us to voluntarily combine our resources and ministry gifts and accomplish together the work of the Kingdom which transcends and exceeds what can be accomplished by any single apostolic sphere working independently.
