Our Culture

  • Jesus Christ, Our Message – Is the good news of the Kingdom of God, by Jesus Christ. We preach Christ Jesus crucified, died, rose again and is seated in heaven. That salvation is not in any other, that our life is in Christ and Christ in us. That Jesus is the answer, He is Gods answer for salvation to all who will believe in and receive Him. We want you to encounter the person of Jesus by the Holy Spirits baptism into Christ. We want you to know that there is more to your life than what you are experiencing now. There is purpose for you and that is found in Christ Jesus the Lord. He gives life to all those who will find Him.  [Jhn 14:6 NKJV] 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
  • His Church, Our Purpose – Jesus is building His Kingdom through His Church, all that we are and are able to do we do all for His glory for His will being done by building His Church. We purpose in our heart to serve out the will of God on earth being His witness, building His Church. [Mat 16:18 KJV] 18 And I (Jesus) say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
  • His Love, Our Identity – we know that this kind of love is not normal kind of love but something that each person must “learn” to walk in by faith. This is the first real fruit of the spirit. It’s not how we are loved but how we love others. To walk in the spirit is a walk in love, by faith, and not by the sense realm. John 13:34-35 (ESV) 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” “1 Peter 1:22 (NLT) You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.”
  • Baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit, Our Desire – First and above all our desire is for the person of the Holy Spirit who manifests Himself through us and not the gift, the gifts are for His glory and not ours and for the purpose for which the gift has manifested.1 Corinthians 12:7 (ESV) To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
  • Generosity, Our Joy – Generosity is about the heart which has been given fully to Jesus.  We see generosity as a privilege. We’re generous with our time, talents and treasure. We joy in giving, for God has given to each one of us, so richly,  it’s our honour to give, for it testifies of where are hearts are and to whom we are in pursuit after. Our generosity glorifies God by our willingness and obedience, in believing, in building His Church and supplying to others.[2Co 9:6-7 KJV] 6 But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 
  • Honour and Obey, Our Commitment – we are instructed to trust God and honour those whom God has ordained and set in His church to follow after that through their faith and words they follow after Christ. We willing follow after the leadership and the vision of His Church being committed to it. 1 Timothy 5:17 (ESV) Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. [Heb 13:17 NLT] 17 Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. 
  •  Praise & Worship, Our Expression – we are passionate in our praise & worship together in Church and we are not ashamed of Him outside the Church. Our Praise and Worship first brings glory and honour to Him which is and is to come. It says we believe and that God is bigger, than this present evil world, anything the devil or by sin and the curse has, is or will do. For He is worthy of our praise and we worship everywhere in every moment. Colossians 1:13-14 (NLT) 13 For he has rescued (delivered) us from the (power of) kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave (all) our sins.[Jhn 4:23 KJV] 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.                                                                                                            
Simplified – Christ Jesus and His Kingdom is our message in our music, sermons, lifestyle and in everything we do. Your life will not remain the same in Jesus name
