We dream of strong church, so strong that is able to influence the City and the Nation, both spiritually and socially;
A church that grows so fast to the point that our buildings will not be able to contain it, but it will not lose the face to face relationship that causes the richness of its precious growth;
A church in which praise and worship touches the skies and bring forth the presence of God and with His presence is able to change the world;
A church that believes and waits for the revival to happen in our time;
Such revival that many would give their lives to take part in it;
A revival that surpasses the building walls and reach out to the wounded heart, to the drug addicted, to the abandoned woman, to the depressed parents, to the sick and to the deteriorated society, as a genuine expression of God himself revealing to the heart that cries out for answers;
A church that is totally dependent upon the Holy Spirit and nothing is able to stop the Spirit of God, so it will be with the church.
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”
