Statement of Purpose
- Jesus Christ commissioned the Church to spread the "good news" of salvation by grace throughout the world; calling the world to receive God’s love and open invitation to have their hearts regenerated through repentance and conversion. Thus becoming wholly born-again and ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb.
- Our vision is to present every Christian perfect in Christ by preaching the Word of God; teaching every Christian to submit to the Holy Spirit by allowing Him to transform their lives after holiness and righteousness; allowing the power of the Word of God to take root in our minds and hearts, purging the Christian of all appearances of evil and sin, and thereby living a victorious life in Jesus Christ.
Our Mission (two fold)
- Our mission is to tirelessly show genuine loving kindness and care to the hurting, wounded, discontent, discouraged and those under all manner of emotional and spiritual distresses, oppression and obsession that desire to be loosed from demonic spiritual invasion, teaching them through the Word of God, prayer and spiritual warfare how God wants them to be set free from all the schemes and devices of satan through the blood of Jesus Christ. Thus we can “prepare people to make an impact for God in their generation and to be fit to enter the Kingdom of God.”
- In Matthew 28:18-20, it says, “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.”
