Who We Are

The Ellington Apostolic Christian Church is a congregation of the Apostolic Christian Church of America. The teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles serve as the foundation of our doctrine and guide our members’ daily lives.

We have approximately 90 congregations in the United States, Japan, Mexico and Canada. Total membership is approximately 12,000 with regular attendance of about 22,000. We are also closely affiliated with the Rural Gospel Medical Mission in India and churches in Eastern Europe.

We regard the entire Word as infallible and inerrant and have endeavored over the years to diligently follow New Testament teachings. Our church founders were influenced by the Sixteenth Century Anabaptists, whose doctrinal motto was "Sola Scriptura." This meant that Scriptures alone constituted the basis for doctrine and life - and they were to be followed.

In Europe, the church was known as Evangelical Baptist. It later became known as Apostolic Christian in America. This name was chosen because the church follows the teachings of Christ and the Apostles.
