We are committed to obey the Great Command and to fulfil the Great Commission by motivating and empowering every member to be an effective minister of Jesus Christ.Our vision aims to make “every member a minister”. We are called to serve and represent Him in our homes and in the marketplace. We also minister to Him as we seek to build up one another and our church friends through prayer and benevolence.
We are committed to disciple and equip members in leading people to Jesus and to help them to grow in Him. We believe that it is through involvement in the cells that disciple-making becomes a practical reality.It is our firm belief that God commissions and sends each member into the world to live and witness for Him.
Following the instructions of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” We believe the mission must begin first in the country of our birth, South Africa, and then through to the uttermost parts of the earth as the Lord will enable us.
1Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment”
We must remember the gospel did not depend for its success on the reasoning’s of philosophy, or the persuasions of eloquence. In the above verse, the Apostle Paul affectionately exhorts the brethren rather than exerting an authoritarian command. He cautions them to take all proper measures to avoid the evils of schism and of strife.
There is a general view among Christians that; ‘unity’ is when all ‘Christians’ come under one priestly or religious arrangement. In history, this has been the status of the Roman Catholic Church that is; to have all Christians contained by its arrangement under the authority its head; the Pope.
Many cults share a similar view to those outside their group. A cult is a religious or social group with unusual or narrative beliefs and practices. This belief system or practice is rearing its ugly head in Christendom. Concentrated efforts of influence and relationships and control lie at the heart of cultic groups. Their members are been manipulated, exploited and even abused.
Sadly, some Charismatic and Evangelical churches appear to suggest a comparable state of affairs that there can only be ‘one church in any city’; or for everyone to be under ‘apostolic authority’. The difficulty with this analysis is that it does not recognize that unity in the Christian faith is essentially spiritual. Governmental unity can ultimately include a gathering of people who have no ‘real’ unity in Christ at all. Any Christian leader who seeks to defy someone else publicly is breaking the unity of the Body of Christ. Thus, they bring the Name into disrepute.
A familiar false impression is that ‘unity’ is expressed through ‘being tolerant’ by not disagreeing with anyone. This is a heartbreaking unity indeed! It is completely foreign to Biblical unity. The Apostles were willing to publicly rebuke and correct individuals and churches –
So often those who cry out loud “unity” and blame others for “dividing the Body” by daring to question their teaching or practice are the very ones who are dividing the church by introducing strange and unbiblical teachings and practices. In carrying out such a mission we are to do in a humble manner of loving concern for the cause of Christ and “His Church”.
