MISSION PURPOSE STATEMENT
To create missions awareness, to recruit, develop and support global Go and MCS teams, and to multiply global churches.
Church Planting in Key Cities
This involves planting seed churches in key cities that will in turn multiply themselves outwardly to other cities and towns.
In the book of Acts, the early church was active in sending out key leaders to start churches in the main cities by preaching the Gospel to the Jews and Gentiles. Some of the churches pioneered are church of Ephesus, Thessalonica, Philippi, Colossae and Corinth (Matt 16:18; Eph 3:10-11). Church planting is the strategy that Apostle Paul used to spread the Gospel.
Church Planting through Tent-making
Today more than 60% of the world cannot be reached by traditional missionary methods. But millions of these same people can be reached with the message of Christ through the non-traditional missions called tentmaking. We take this approach. Our church planters or “tentmakers” support themselves through their vocation as they serve God on the mission field.
Paul was a tentmaker not because there was no other option, but because it was the best option to reach many segments of society. He wanted to be an example of how a Christian lives in this world. He wanted to earn the right to be heard based on his lifestyle, the careful building of relationships, being where the people were, working side by side with them (Acts 18:3). That's what we want for our goers today.
Church Planting as per Acts 1:8
"You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem (pioneer locally), and in all Judea and Samaria (pioneer in Asia), and to the ends of the earth (pioneer globally)."

Our church in Johannesburg is now led by local indigenous leadership.
