HISTORY

The Apostolic Church is an off-shoot of the great Welsh Revival of 1904 -1905. One of the fruits of that revival—Pastor D.P. Williams—went on to begin a movement that later became known as The Apostolic Church. As the church grew, they sent forth missionaries beyond the British Isles in their global agenda of belting the globe with the gospel. These were people who encountered Jesus and couldn't keep the experience to themselves so they went all over the world with the message. One of the countries they reached out to was Nigeria upon receiving an invitation from a group of believers there. This group became officially affiliated with The Apostolic Church of Great Britain and became known as The Apostolic Church, Nigeria In 1931. 
In consistence with the mission strategy of The Apostolic Church, the missionaries sent to Nigeria established an indigenous National Apostolic Church in Nigeria. After a few decades, The Apostolic Church Nigeria grew and became an autonomous national body with 5 territories, the largest of which is known as LAWNA. As TAC LAWNA grew and expanded, the territory in turn sent missionaries to mission fields in different continents around the world. One of these mission fields is United Kingdom (taking the gospel back to the land of the missionaries that brought the same to Nigeria), hence TAC (LAWNA) UK. The establishment of the UK Mission field became a fulfilment of a prophetic word given at the graduation of Pastor Dr G.O. Olutola (The TACN National President as at the time of establishing the UK Mission field) from the TAC Bible College, Pennygroes South Wales in the 1960’s that God will use him to bring revival back to the UK. The same vision was later confirmed to Pastor M.D. Davies (LAWNA UK's Missionary Pastor), 50 years later.
True to God’s Word, The Apostolic Church (LAWNA) UK was inaugurated on the 3rd of August 2014 by Pastor (Dr) G.O. Olutola and the Central Executive Council of TACN, LAWNA Territory in fulfilment of the 50-year-old prophecy. And on the 2nd of November, 2014, the church was officially inaugurated in the United Kingdom by delegates of the National Executive Council of The Apostolic Church Nigeria under the leadership of Pastor Dr. G.O. Olutola (JP). As of today, TAC LAWNA has assemblies in Liverpool, Manchester, London, Reading, and Georgia (Eastern Europe) to the glory of God.

VALUES

Here’s the deal, The Apostolic Church cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ! In each of our assemblies, The Apostolic Church (LAWNA) UK is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom.

Our Core Values can be summarised by the acronym: L.E.A.P

Love (both within the church and to the wider community)

Excellence (reflected in our programmes, materials and activities)

Alliance (partnerships with CoE and other relevant organisations)

Personal Development (fostered by the G24 Team initiative)

VISION

Our Vision is "to see people saved, set free, discipled, empowered and serving."

 

Our Mission is "to show people who Jesus is." We do this by teaching the whole counsel of God, organising events which bless lives across the globe, reaching out to our communities and fostering an atmosphere of love at all of our locations.

WHERE WE ARE HEADED

 

Coming from such a rich history of missions from the UK to Nigeria and back to the UK, our church is committed to building a family that is multicultural—a family that reflects Britain's multiculturality—where anyone from anywhere around the world can feel welcome. Our DNA is LOVE—love for the people in our communities, love for those who walk into our doors, and love for our common Saviour. And as we move forward as a church, inclusion and belonging remain at the centre of who we are as a church.

OUR TENETS

  • The one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.​

  • The inherent corruptness of man through the Fall; The necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.

  • The Virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, triumphant resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ; His second coming and millennial reign upon earth.

  • The Justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ.

  • The baptism of the Holy spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the church for its mission in the world.

  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.

  • The Sacraments of Baptism by immersion and of the Lord’s Supper

  • The divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures.

  • Christ’s leadership of the Church through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers, elders and deacons, for unity, maturity and growth of the church.

  • The security of the believer as he remains in Christ

  • The privilege and responsibility of bringing tithes and offerings to the Lord.
