To live as awakened sons & daughters of our Father, passionately in love with Him. To be people who live vitally connected to Jesus, abundantly alive and entirely free. To be those who love mankind, are united in purpose, full of the Holy Spirit, fulfilling His calling, reflecting His creativity, changing lives and filling the world with His light and love.
Our MISSION is to be authentic people, encountering God, loving Him & one another, demonstrating the Kingdom of Heaven.
One of our goals is to help develop healthy people who are healed of their past wounds, rely upon God as their source, know God personally, hear His voice everyday, and are actively engaged in their calling and purpose in the earth. Our desire is for everyone in our fellowship to have a deep well with the Lord from which they drink from themselves and give others a drink also.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”
One of our primary callings is to be people who worship and adore God. We want to cultivate an atmosphere of liberty in our fellowship where people lavish on God corporately and have a lifestyle of worship privately in everything they do.
“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.”
Through Life Groups, Ministry Teams, church picnics, and serving together, our hope is that the people who gather here would grow to love one another, preferring one another over themselves, and build relationships that demonstrate the Kingdom.
“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” I John 4:11
“..but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” I John 1:7
Through teachings, guest speakers and special training times, we want to equip people of every age to live abundantly, doing the work of the ministry wherever they are, living Christ-like lives.
“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-14
It is estimated that less than 5% of the body of Christ know what their giftings are, or what they are called to do. One of our goals is to help every person in our fellowship identify their calling and their giftings, so that they can then begin stepping out and pursuing what they are called to do.
“Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.” I Cor 14:1
“So also you, since you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek to abound for the edification of the church.” I Cor 14:12
Through participation on Prophetic Teams, Children’s Ministry, Helps Ministries, Worship Teams, Ministry Teams, Hospitality Teams, leading Life Groups, etc., we want to provide numerous avenues for people to grow in their giftings and serve one another.
“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10
Touch Our City/Community
Another primary call for our fellowship and for every believer individually, is to reach the lost and disciple new believers. The primary way that we have planned to do this is through our Ministry Teams. These are teams of people from our fellowship that consistently go out into the city and demonstrate the kingdom by ministering to people through the prophetic, through service, and demonstrating love. We have seen dramatic healings taken place through these teams and lives changed.
It is through these Ministry Teams that people in our fellowship are given the opportunity, support, and training to step out in faith to do the works of Jesus.
We believe that we are to play a part in the harvest of Winston-Salem. We desire to establish outreaches on the campuses of the city, and reach the lost wherever God sends us.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;” Matt 5:14
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
