“Where there is no vision the people perish”
– Proverbs 29:18
We are a Family of Leadership Teams; Planting, Envisioning and Equipping Churches for the Mission of Christ in Communities and Cities.
SEVEN CORE FAMILY VALUES
We are Evangelical: we are a part of the global evangelical movement and committed to key evangelical beliefs.
We are Charismatic: We are committed to live in the fullness of God’s life through the Holy Spirit, cherishing ‘the gifts’ and pursuing ‘the fruit’. We seek the kingdom in all of life- joining the Father, Son and Holy Spirit on their mission.
Friendship, sense of family and food are the relational aspects evident in our churches. We value people more than programs or structure.
It is not about drawing people to ourselves but to Christ. We see HIM at the center of all things including our jobs, families, recreation, hopes & dreams.
We lead by serving. That is the Jesus- model. No job, role or responsibility is too menial for us. In fact, it is our privilege to serve our King who laid down His life for us.
We are blessed to be a blessing. And our greatest blessing is Christ Jesus. To share HIM in His fullness is our privilege and joy. We aren’t just consumers but also dispensers in the Kingdom of God.
It is not just about the local church: it is about HIS Kingdom and HIS blessing on communities, cities and nations through church planting, social transformation & engaging every sphere of society.
Beyond just believing, the process of discipleship transforms an alien into a disciple of Christ. Faith & sacrificial living are two key apects of this training.
We believe in accountability and spiritual covering. An apostolic body brings guidance, protection & growth into our churches. It empowers us to grow into maturity and intimacy through the development of the 5-fold ministry.
