Partnering with Four12
We see in Scripture that there were no denominations or networks of churches in the New Testament Church. What was in place were relationships where local churches worked together in partnership with the Apostles to help build healthy churches and plant new ones. We believe that this is God’s timeless blueprint for His Church, and, in line with this, we are part of an apostolic partnership of churches called Four12.
What is Four12?
The church is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone” (Ephesians 2 vs 20). The role of the apostle was central to how churches were built in the New Testament, yet many questions surround the apostolic today.
To help bring understanding and greater clarity to the topic, we have put together both written and recorded resources that explore the heart of the apostolic, how they can help us to build healthy churches and what it means to walk in authentic partnership.
Our partners are made up of apostolic fields which themselves contain numerous churches, multi-site churches (which have multiple congregations) and stand-alone churches. At present we have churches partnering across 18 nations with over 332 congregations (158 urban and 174 rural congregations). We have partners in areas where the church faces persecution – to keep them safe, it is in their best interests we do not disclose their details.
