About Us

Our Vision

By Biblical teaching and preaching to bring precious souls to know Christ as their own and personal Saviour, and to challenge those who do know Christ to holiness of heart and life; to a Spirit-filled walk with God; to seek God in brokenness of heart and humility in earnest and believing prayer for God to pour out His Spirit in true revival power.

Our passion

To see the Spirit of God poured out in glorious reviving power.

Our invitation
To join with us in prayer; wherever you are in the world, until we see a spiritual awaking that will bring glory to God and Salvation blessing to our friends and community.
