The Coalition OF Nigerian Apostolic Leaders (CNAL) is an affiliate of the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (ICAL) working exclusively in the nation of NIGERIA. Both adhere to the Apostles’ Creed and the core doctrines of the Protestant Reformation, namely:
the ultimate and essential authority of the Scriptures for Christian faith and practice
justification by faith
