Position Paper on the New Apostolic Reformation
The Potter’s Wheel Christian Fellowship
The Potter’s Wheel Christian Fellowship has prepared a position paper in response to the growing concerns about the teachings and practices of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement, also known as the “apostolic-prophetic movement” and the “apostles and prophets movement.”
The Potter's Wheel Christian Fellowship
- Rejects the teaching that present-day apostles and prophets must hold specially recognized official positions in church government.
- Rejects the teaching that present-day prophets and apostles are revealing to the church “new truths,” also sometimes referred to by other terms, including “present truth,” “present-day truth,” and “strategies.”
- Affirms that the Bible testifies to Elders (referred to variously as “Overseers,” “Elders,” “Shepherds,” and “Pastors”) and to Deacons as the two offices explicitly mentioned in Scripture for church governance.
- Affirms that the Bible—consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments—is the church’s supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. As such, we affirm its primary role in establishing the belief, practice, and mission of the church—both universally and locally.
