We're new here.

Church of the Apostles is a brand-new church to the New Orleans area. We're excited to start seeing lives transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. However, we need your help to move the mission forward! Would you consider sowing into the Kingdom and investing in COTA today?


Our Mission:

To preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to every creature, remaining firm in the apostles doctrine, thereby producing healers, harvesters, and husbandmen living in the power of the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.



You can be a part of the difference in the lives of many people--some that you may never meet. With over 400,000 people in the area, churches that preach truth are needed now more than ever.

Our Purpose:

Keeping His commandments,
Embracing His commission.

Statement of Faith

The Inspired Word of God:

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man. It is the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason. Though in defiance of it is not contrary to reason
2 Timothy 3:15 -17; 1Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12


The One, True God:

There is only one God-- The I Am.  His original substance and condition is Omni-present Spirit. He was manifest in the flesh as the son of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He is referred to as Holy Spirit when in direct contact with humanity; either moving upon or infilling of mankind.
Deut 6:4; Is 9:6; 1Tim 3:16; 2Pet 1:21; Lk 1:35; Acts 2:4

The Fall of Man and Redemption:

Man was created good and upright for God said, “let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ.
Gen1:26-31; Gen 3:17; Rom 5:12-21


The Redemption of Man:

The grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men through the preaching of the gospel, which is the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Rom 10:13-15; Luke 24:47

Jesus stated that except a man be born again he cannot see or enter the kingdom of heaven. He further explained to be born again one must be born of water and of the Spirit.

John 3:1-21

The new birth begins with acceptance of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ: that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh; that he was justified in the spirit; that He was born of a virgin; lived in perfection; and was crucified died and rose again on the third day.

1 Tim 3:16

The proper response to the gospel is to be Born of the water which is to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins there by releasing the believer from the fallen nature of Adam. Born of the Spirit, which is to be filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost evidence by speaking with other tongues. Once the believer is born again, he should endeavor to develop the nature of Christ.

2 Peter 1:5-8 KJV
[5] And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
[6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
[7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
[8] For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
