What We Do
As temples of the Living God we are to be houses of prayer. We pray namely for the purpose of abiding in Christ because apart from him we are unable to accomplish anything. We pray that we may abide in Him, His words and His actions, that we may bear much fruit and that our fruit might remain.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
GOSPEL PROCLAMATION (Baptize)
How will they hear without a preacher? As the LORD has called His church to be the Light of the World, we intentionally GO in order to shine the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ upon the unbelieving. The Lord Jesus Christ has called His church to be witnesses to the power of His resurrection. We proclaim victory through Jesus, believing that the gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.

JESUS calls all believers to be disciples and to make disciples. As disciples we must be willing to daily lay down our lives for the sake of the Gospel and the name of our LORD. As stewards of the Word of God, we aim to encourage one another and others into a deeper relationship with Christ by preaching the Word; being instant in season and out of season, reproving, rebuking, exhortingwith all longsuffering and doctrine.

Amen.

WORKS OF COMPASSION
Our GOD is a GOD of love, justice and compassion. JESUS looked upon the masses and saw that they were as sheep with no shepherd. Our LORD says, “What you have done to the least of these, you have also done unto Me.” Through these works of compassion, we are able to contextualize the Gospel
within the framework of addressing specific needs to transform our society for the glory of GOD.
