No. 301 - The New Apostolic Church at Rosetta

The New Apostolic Church is an international Christian church. It developed from the Catholic Apostolic Church in 1863 and is led by apostles, similar to the first Christian congregations. Nine million Christians worldwide currently profess the New Apostolic faith. It has no connection with the Apostolic Church.

Most of the doctrines of the New Apostolic Church are similar to mainstream Christianity. Its liturgy resembles Protestantism, whereas its hierarchy and organisation could be compared with the Roman Catholic Church. The New Apostolic Church is neither Protestant nor Catholic. The church considers itself to be the re-established continuation of the Early Church and that its leaders are the successors of the twelve apostles.

The New Apostolic Church was established in Tasmania 1951. There are 52 New Apostolic churches across Australia. The church at Rosetta is the only congregation in Tasmania.
