Renewal – Revival – Restoration


“The renewal of individuals, the revival of a community, and the restoration of the Nations”



“To develop totally committed followers of Jesus Christ to reach the world”


      • To see individuals renewed by encountering and experiencing the presence & power of God. Acts 3:19
      • To see revival in our community through individuals reflecting and revealing on earth as it is in heaven. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
      • To see nations restored & awakened through equipping the saints to fulfill the Great Commission. Ephesians 4:11-12, Matthew 28:18-20

Core Values

Our First Ministry is to God

Our personal love relationship with our Heavenly Father is priority number one. Mark 12:30


Every Believer is a Minister of the Gospel

We will Equip the Saints (believers) to do the work of the ministry by embracing God’s biblical government of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, & Teachers. Ephesians 4:11


Praise & Worship

We are a church that houses a priesthood- a worshiping community offering spiritual sacrifices to God, whose primary focus is ministering to God Himself. 1 Peter 2:5


Kingdom Focused

We will keep and maintain our focus on Jesus and His Kingdom. Focusing on the Kingdom is our safeguard to never becoming problem focused. Matthew 6:33


Hearing God’s Voice

God’s voice gives and produces life, identity, and produces faith…faith comes from hearing God. Hearing His voice is central to living the Christian life. Romans 10:17


We Are A Chosen Generation

This value trains us to see ourselves as our Father in Heaven does, which will translate into valuing others the way the Father does. It produces a culture of Honor where we learn to celebrate each other as Royalty. 1 Peter 2:9



This value creates a lifestyle for us to live by, and is the supplication of the saints. We are generation that longs to see “On Earth as is in Heaven”.  Luke 11:2

Our goal is to develop totally committed followers of Jesus Christ to reach the world.



We believe that the love of God changes everything. When a person realizes for themselves how much value their life has, transformation begins. All of humanity is longing for an encounter with the love of God. Our desire is to create an atmosphere where people from any background can experience the life transformational power of an encounter with The Living God.



A true encounter with the love of God draws us into community with others. Godly friendships are a key ingredient to healthy spiritual growth. Our desire is to promote and lead people into authentic Christ centered community.



The Kingdom of God is not located in a building. Jesus demonstrated the Kingdom was located wherever He went. The saints (all believers) have the authority and ability to bring the Kingdom of God to all circumstances. One of our strongest passions is to see a generation of people who understand that Christianity is to be taken with them wherever they go. Revival in the world starts when believers have a transformational revelation that they take Christ with them to their jobs, schools, families, neighborhoods and everywhere else they are located.


One of our strongest convictions is that God still talks to His children today. We are committed to equipping believers through teaching, workshops and conferences on how to hear and discern the voice of God.
