Priorities

Priorities are like the pillar of the building that emerge directly from the foundation. The whole structure is built around these pillars.

Worship
We desire to worship God with our whole being. We want Jesus at the center as our Lord. We hunger for the fullness of the Spirit… His glory resting upon us! (Psalm 42:1,2; 63:1-5; John 4:24; Romans 12:1; Philippians 3:3; Hebrews 13:5). We desire Spirit-enabled worship in a style that is intimate, dynamic, culture current, and life changing. (1 Corinthians 14:26; Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4)

The Word

We want to hear the Word of God taught in a practical, inspiring way, in conjunction with His current prophetic word. (Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 14:26; 2 Timothy 3:16,17). We aim to hear and obey God’s Word to us to be “doers of the Word” who are being transformed into the likeness of Christ. (Matthew 7:24-27; James 1:22)

Fellowship

Church is not an organization but an organism, it is the Body of Christ on earth (John.15:5; 1 Cor.3:9-17; Eph.5:23-33; 1 Pet.2:5,9) which includes human beings and relations. Organization should serve an organism. We seek to develop real, intimate, enabling friendships together, built on covenant love, mutual responsibility and faithfulness. Healthy community creates healthy people. (Ephesians 4:11-16; Philippians 2:3-5; Colossians 3:12-15; Hebrews 3:12-14)

Ministry (the sick, the lost, the poor)
We believe that all Christians are called to serve Christ in the power of His Spirit, in ways that build up the local church. (Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7; 1 Peter 4:10,11). We are called to do the ministry of Christ in the world today, for example…

  • preach the Gospel of the Kingdom
  • persuade men to repent and believe in Jesus
  • heal the sick
  • care for the poor and those in need
  • counsel those in need of God’s wisdom
  • teach believers to follow Christ
  • give our resources to the work of Christ
  • train Christians to serve the Lord.

(Matthew 10:7-8; Romans 12:13; 2 Corinthians 5:20; Ephesians 4:11-12; Colossians 1:28; 1 Timothy 6:18; James 1:27)

Training

We believe that all Christians should be trained to “do the works of Christ.” (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2). We are committed to the “show and tell” model of “on the job” training, in which trainees are introduced to doing ministry functions with trainers and then are taught during and after the training experience. (Luke 11:1-4). We aim to provide training for all aspects of responsible Christian life and ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

Sending

We aim to renew, refresh, and enable existing churches by sending trained personnel out on short-term ministry trips. (Matthew 10:5-15; Luke 9:1-6; 10:1). We aim to build the Church of Jesus Christ by sending trained personnel to plant churches around the world. (Romans 15:20; Revelation 5:9,10)
