The IOACJCI Logo

The official logo has three (3) main elements: THE SEVEN CANDLESTICKS, THE OPEN BIBLE and THE WORLD.

THE SEVEN CANDLESTICKS

In the Old Testament typology, the Seven Candlesticks is the only source of light inside the Holy Place (Tabernacle / Temple); It speaks of our Lord Jesus Christ as the Light of the world; Seven (7) is a number of perfection. The Holy Ghost is the only power of illumination and change as the Apostolic Christians go onto perfection.

THE OPEN BIBLE

Symbolizes the Word of God; the Heavenly manna which nourishes the whole Body of Christ (Church). It is placed at the foot of the Seven Candlesticks which means that the Holy Ghost is our guide and school master to lead us to the truth. One cannot fully understand and rightly divide the Word of Truth without the Holy Ghost leading the Christian.

Beneath the Open Bible are two verses. Deuteronomy 6:4 “HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD”. This Biblical precept is the foundation of Jewish Monotheistic faith and the New Testament teaching of the Godhead. It speaks of the Oneness of God and the Unity of all Apostolic Christians in Christ.

Acts 2:38 “…REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS AND YE SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST.” This verse is the New Testament Plan of Salvation. It is a brief explanation of the New Birth Doctrine (John 3:3-5).

THE EARTH

The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. It speaks of the human habitation where God gave Himself as the object of His love and the ground work of His redemption story – the Amazing Grace. It is the whole earth’s humanity which is the recipient of the Holy Ghost and the Word of God to be saved. The Lord Jesus has commanded His Apostles to “Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature…”
