Our Passion For God
We are a people who are passionately pursuing God through prayer, praise and worship. We are unashamed God-seekers who know we can’t do anything without His presence and grace. We refuse to be complacent, indifferent or compromising in the expression of love for God in praise and worship. We refuse to settle for status quo of religion or previous experiences because we believe He has so much more for His people. We will never stop reaching for more of God.
Our Passion For People
We exist as a church to reach as many people as possible with the life-transforming power of God’s love and Kingdom. Everything we do as a church, every program, every service and event, and every dollar spent will always be for the purpose of winning souls, and helping them find their eternal purpose.
We will never grow tired, indifferent or uninterested in our core value of reaching out to the lost, least and last. Christ died for a lost world and we live with an unquenchable passion to bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to as many people and nations as we can, with as many resources that we have.
Our mission is:
To REACH out to all people and nations with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God,
To TRAIN, equip and empower believers by God’s word, to grow in Christ-likeness and find and fulfill their kingdom destiny.
To SEND an army of ambassadors into the 7 mountains of cul-ture as agents of kingdom transformation.
