The Perichoresis Association of People Adopted (PAPA) is an international association of like minded Christian churches who are recovering the Christ-centered, trinitarian gospel of the ancient Church, and understand its relevance to human life today. In the United States we are a registered tax exempt nonprofit religious corporation, based in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The Churches in this Association try to articulate the truth of our adoption in Jesus Christ in practical and personal ways that are relevant and accessible to the average person. As part of this process the churches communicate the personal, relational, global, historical, political, economic, religious, scientific and cosmic implications of Jesus’ identity as the Father’s Son, the Anointed One, and the One in and through and by and for whom all things were created and are sustained. 

Part of the function of this Association is provide like minded churches and their pastoral staffs the opportunity to stimulate dialog centered upon the early Church’s vision of Jesus Christ and his central place in the cosmos.

These churches intend to share the truth of our adoption in Jesus Christ with the widest possible audience, through relationships, publications, teaching, web sites, conferences, and through equipping leaders and teachers, musicians and artists, pastors and missionaries around the world.
