Apostolic Sacramental Church
Our roots date back to 1870 as a result of a separation from the Roman Catholic Church, initiated by the "Old Catholics" in Utrecht, Netherlands. Our Church emerged in response to specific decrees of the First Vatican Council, particularly those concerning Papal Infallibility and Papal Authority.
Choosing the name Apostolic Sacramental Church was a deliberate decision, representing not just who we are not (as implied by "Old Catholic"), but also encapsulating our core identity:
Our Core Identity
We are Apostolic - Our bishops are consecrated in lines of succession that can be traced back to the very Apostles themselves.
We are Sacramental - At the heart of our faith, we devoutly practice the seven sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Matrimony, Holy Orders, and Anointing of the Sick.
We are Church - We are a community of devoted followers of Jesus, and we actively serve as a positive force for good in our world.
