New Apostolic Christians belong to a District Church which is responsible for their place of residence. As a rule, several District Churches are grouped together in one District Apostle District. The entire church comprises a total of 18 District Apostle Areas worldwide. As the name suggests, these areas are headed by District Apostles. The entire Church is under the direction of the Chief Apostle as the supreme spiritual authority.
The New Apostolic Church has been headed by Jean-Luc Schneider since Pentecost 2013. As Chief Apostle, he leads the Church from its headquarters in Zurich.
