A community of fully devoted, spiritual Christ-followers passionate for an ever-deeper relationship with God
A Church fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit, exercising their God-given gifts in joyful and fulfilling service.
A Church totally committed to making disciples.
We believe that the Church should operate as a unified community of servants stewarding their spiritual gifts. (1 Corinthians 12 & 14; Romans 12; Ephesians 4)
We believe that the Church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of Church life. This includes the principle of servant-hood and commitment to relationship building. (1 Corinthians 13; Nehemiah 3; Luke 10:1; John 13:34-35)
We believe that lost people matter to God, and therefore, ought to matter to the Church. This is the reason for our commitment to relational evangelism as well as organised evangelistic events. (Luke 5:30-32; Luke 15; Matthew 18:14)
We believe that churches should be led by those with leadership gifts. This is the reason for our commitment to shared leadership, continuous training and the evaluation of gifts and abilities. (Nehemiah 1 & 2; Romans 12:8; Acts 6:2-5)
“Destiny and Purpose are larger than life words, yet every one of us keep chasing after it. Your destiny and your purpose are in God`s Hands and when you understand the path, it will lead you there. “
– Pastor Bobby Leonard
