7.5.1 Continuity of the Apostle ministry

The Apostle ministry was established by the Lord for His church. The Apostles are to be His witnesses to the end of the earth (Acts 1: 8). In order to fulfil this extensive commission, Jesus also sends Apostles today. Even during the time when there were no bearers of this ministry on earth, the ministry established by Him remained (2 Corinthians 3: 11).
