Our Mission

Preamble (excerpts)

The first and foremost objective and aim of this Church is the salvation and sanctification of people united with this Church. People are sanctified when they follow the guidance of the Church and use the spiritual means that the Church receives from God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Tim. 2:5).

By divine imperative the sacred mission of this Church is to carry the light of Jesus Christ before the people, constantly reminding them that their aim is to live in the spirit of God, in truth, love and righteousness, seeking the truth by reading and studying the Holy Scriptures with the aid of the accumulated wisdom of the ages.

The most fervent desire and prayer of this Church is to emulate Jesus Christ in fulfilling obligations toward God, family, nation and society.

Tenets and Aims

The principles of the National Catholic Church are an expression of the convictions of those who believe that the salvation of mankind and their personal relationship to God cannot be the object of bargaining and cannot be forced upon mankind, but must flow from the free conscience of everyone.

The National Catholic Church is a voluntary union of those who recognize the religious principles of this Church as the norms and rules of their lives.

The National Catholic Church teaches and professes all the religious truths which God revealed, Jesus Christ proclaimed, and the Apostles and their successors established as the foundation of the Christian Catholic Faith. Namely that God created the world; that man needs God's gift of divine grace for his perfection, happiness, and salvation; that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world; that the human soul is immortal; that through the Holy Spirit, God governs the Church and enables it to regenerate and convert human society, and unite it under one Shepherd, Christ Jesus our Lord. In this manner, the kingdom of God on Earth is realized.

The religious principle of the National Catholic Church is her teaching that the Church cannot save man without his sincere, personal cooperation with God. The Church teaches that the wisdom of God sanctifies and helps man in the fulfillment of his mission and the attainment of his goal on earth. A living faith in God and good works flowing from that faith will save man. The Church of Christ is the true way of leading man to know the Truth and salvation.

The most important objective of the National Catholic Church, as the Catholic Church of Christ, is to maintain, enrich and develop the life of God in the soul of man. To help man know God and His holy Being so that from this knowledge and understanding may flow blessing, light, love, strength, and inner satisfaction which no person or thing can give. Save God - this is the most important goal of the National Catholic Church.

As a nucleus of Christ's revelation, the above statements are to us worthy religious truths concerning God, the individual, state, nation, and all of mankind. It is, therefore, necessary to know and fulfill them. These Christian truths recorded and expounded by the prophets, and taught by the Apostles and other great disciples of the Divine Master of Nazareth, were adhered to by saintly and noble people for nearly 2,000 years. They are all embodied in the Confession of Faith of the National Catholic Church. May they be a living rule and guide for our daily lives.
