Our vision is to minister to the holistic needs of the affiliated churches and that through our unification we will find mutual benefits: spiritually, financially, emotionally and intellectually. We will share resources, knowledge and expertise enabling us to become more effective in our local ministries. We will be unified in both word and practice and endeavor to undergird each other in prayer, fasting, love and edification, encouraging one another to do greater works for God’s Kingdom.
Interested in learning more?
We are an emerging fellowship of churches and missions working together to become more efficient and effective in our local communities; exemplifying the Power of Unity in both spiritual and temporal matters.
We endeavor to be a learning community of believers who give themselves to maturing and maximizing the gifts and calling of each member of our affiliated community. We commit ourselves to equipping the saints, holding each other accountable to living the biblical principles that we teach and growing together as a body of unified believers in order to be more effective in local ministry!
Our mission is to be a unified body of churches and ministries jointly focused on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to align ourselves with like-minded churches and missions, who desire to minister through, love, example, instruction, encouragement and the life-changing Word of God. Together, we will realize the value of being unified, easing the temporal-burdens of ministry for the individual churches as a whole.
