The Ministry of an Apostle
Let them journey from thence, preaching the word by the way, saying none other things than that which the prophets and apostles have written, and that which is taught them by the Comforter, through the prayer of faith...
...when it was day, he called his disciples; and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles.... Then he called his twelve disciples together, and he gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.... They departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere.... They continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers; and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles...

Message to the Saints
In April 2016, a Revelation was brought forward by Patriarch Fred Greene, calling two men to the office of apostle (Gary R. Whiting and Randy L. Vick), stating "they shall meet with much prayer and fasting and shall be given the names of the other ten Apostles to be ordained...These Apostles shall be charged with gathering all the scattered Saints into one body. This effort is to begin in this land and then reach out to the world. It is my will that all those who desire to be engaged in the marvelous work that is about to come forth be strengthened, united and prepared..."
In December 2016, these brothers presented a letter (epistle) addressed to saints of the Restoration, wherein they called the saints to a remembrance of who we are and what we have been called to. The Saints were asked to humble themselves before the Lord and surrender pride of place, choosing generosity toward those in the Restoration in favor of the urgent work of God's Kingdom.
Since that time, additional apostles were called and ordained. Together they petitioned the Lord for clarity in the mission He lay before them. In June 2017 they shared an apostolic declaration, which serves as the apostles' mission statement going forward, by defining the parameters within which they understand their authority. They state there, "We sense a mantle of authority has rested upon us in this office and our desire is to serve faithfully in that calling and no further."
We invite you to review each of these documents and join us in putting your tithes, your obedience to God, and your purposed effort into the work of building up God's Kingdom throughout the world.
