This chapter examines the ecclesiology of the Catholic Apostolic Church. It describes the nature of the church, fourfold order and character of the ministry, the church's sources of funding for the maintenance of the ministry, and its various affiliate sects and societies. This chapter concludes that the ecclesiology of the Catholic Apostolic Church was based on certain premises that included its apostolic constitution and ministry being divinely given, and that its structure was revealed in the Scripture.
