Just what do you mean by apostle?

Qualifications of an Apostle

  • An apostle as defined strictly by the New Testament, no longer exists today, since these three conditions had to be met:
  • The person had to have been an eyewitness to Jesus after his resurrection (1 Corinthians 9:1);
  • Had to have been chosen by the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:15);
  • Had to have ministered with miraculous signs and wonders (Acts 2:43; 2 Corinthians 12:12).

A modern-day apostle would typically function as a church planter—one who is sent out by the body of Christ to spread the gospel and establish new communities of believers.
