Vision The revelation of the glory of Christ and the blessing of the nations. “For the earth will be filled with the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14
Mission To call Christians from all nations to unite in repentance and prayer, and to collaborate as God’s instruments for the blessing and healing of the nations. “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Why Are We Gathering? To seek God and exalt His Son for one reason only, because He is worthy. We must keep the main thing the main thing – which is Jesus. We seek to honour Him today. He has called us to come before Him “in all things with prayer and thanksgiving.”
Why Are We Gathering? We gather as God’s church to worship Him in unity, seeking His face and interceding for the transformation of our city. We seek God for revival, intercede on behalf of our world, and collaborate for the blessing and transformation of our cultures. It is about an ongoing process of making God’s name great in our cities.
A Call to Repentance “Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Saviour. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. Selah” Psalm 24:3-6
