What I know about the Old Apostolic Church

The last biblical apostle ( John, whom wrote Revelations) died about 100 A.D, and then 1700 years later, the Old Apostolic Church (OAC) suddenly commissioned 12 new apostles (1865) whom was then given "power" to go out and "forgive people their sins" , "seal them" i.e. an Apostle is the "light of nations so that they can give salvation till all ends of the earth"

I can not earn my salvation i.e. eternal life other than trough faith ;
Rom 6:23 The payment for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Eph 2:8 God saved you through faith as an act of kindness. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God.
Gal 3:11 No one receives God's approval by obeying the law's standards since, "The person who has God's approval will live by faith.
Joh 1:9-13 The real light, which shines on everyone, was coming into the world. (10) He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him. Yet, the world didn't recognize him. (11) He went to his own people, and his own people didn't accept him. (12) However, he gave the right to become God's children to everyone who believed in him. (13) These people didn't become God's children in a physical way-from a human impulse or from a husband's desire to have a child. They were born from God."
Act 16:31 They answered, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you and your family will be saved."

Eph 2:18-21 For through him (Jesus), both of us have access to the Father in one Spirit (the Holy Spirit). (19) That is why you (all sincere believers) are no longer strangers and foreigners but fellow citizens with the saints (all other sincere believers) and members of God's (spiritual )household, (20) having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets (which is the whole, contractual Word of God; the Old and well as the New Testament), Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone. (the Head as well as the cornerstone). (21) In him the whole building ( all sincere believers i.e the Church i.e. the body of Christ) is joined together and rises into a holy sanctuary in the Lord.

The Bible is the Word of God ; thus not the word that comes out the mouth of one Apostle alone
2Ti 3:16 Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God's approval.·

No man can interact with or on behalf of the dead
Deu 18:10-12 You must never sacrifice your sons or daughters by burning them alive, practice black magic, be a fortune teller, witch, or sorcerer, (11) cast spells, ask ghosts or spirits for help, or consult the dead. (12) Whoever does these things is disgusting to the LORD. The LORD your God is forcing these nations out of your way because of their disgusting practices.

No mortal is or can become an Angel.

The foundation of Apostles are those that knew and witnessed Jesus i.e. the original Apostles chosen of whom John was the last.

Faith is more than knowledge of God and Jesus Christ, is to believe that Jesus is whom He was and to depend on Him alone and fully; then only, one can and will receive the free gift from GOD i.e eternal life.

 The Kingdom of heaven is a spiritual world where GOD spiritually / physically lives.
Act 1:9-10 After he had said this, he was taken to heaven. A cloud hid him so that they could no longer see him. (10) They were staring into the sky as he departed. Suddenly, two men in white clothes stood near them.

When I accepted Christ as my Saviour, I was reborn, received the Holy Spirit and become part of the spiritual Kingdom of God, is a member of the body of Christ, is a member of his Church.
Rom 10:9-10 If you declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God brought him back to life, you will be saved. (10) By believing you receive God's approval, and by declaring your faith you are saved.

Jesus Christ is my intermediary to GOD and Jesus is the only Head of the Church

Eph 1:17-23 I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Christ better. (18) Then you will have deeper insight. You will know the confidence that he calls you to have and the glorious wealth that God's people will inherit. (19) You will also know the unlimited greatness of his power as it works with might and strength for us, the believers. (20) He worked with that same power in Christ when he brought him back to life and gave him the highest position in heaven. (21) He is far above all rulers, authorities, powers, lords, and all other names that can be named, not only in this present world but also in the world to come. (22) God has put everything under the control of Christ. He has made Christ the head of everything for the good of the church. (23) The church is Christ's body and completes him as he fills everything in every way.

My bible i.e the same bible the OAC uses, tells me never to place my everlasting soul in the hand of any mortal. GOD has given us the Truth, the Light, so that we know that we have eternal life through Jesus Christ alone.
Joh 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Do I condemn the OAC or any of its members? No I don't.

I only need to / want to tell the truth, GOD will do the rest.

This I will do whenever GOD gives me the opportunity.......

I will share the truth with my sons.

Eph 1:17 I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Christ better.
