19. Do you approve of the Apostles and Elders organizing the Church on the Meeting Place Finder for the body of Christ? in agreement with these 18 questions.
Have you "tested those who call themselves apostles" (Rev. 2.2)? "As they
went on their way through the cities, they delivered to them for observance the
decisions which had been reached by the apostles and elders" (Acts 16.4) to
"speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine" (Tit. 2.1). Paul told
Titus that an elder (bishop) should "be able by sound doctrine both to exhort
and to convince the gainsayers" (Titus 1.9). Apostles directly commissioned by

statement of faith so the Church can be confident in those who say they are
Apostles. See the questions at

For this reason I left you in a region of churches, that you should set in order the things which remain, and appoint elders for every city as I directed you...without taking sides or showing special favor to anyone. Never be in a hurry about appointing an elder" (Acts 14.23, 2 Cor. 10.13, Titus 1.5, 1 Tim. 5.22).
