Who are we?
On Mission With God
To seek the manifest Presence of God and His Kingdom here on earth...
Our church has been called to operate as a 'city set on a hill that cannot be hidden' (Matt 5:14). Our desire is to be a large and influential church, serving as one member of the broader Body of Christ, which visibly demonstrates the glory of God to the rest of the world.
We feel called to be a dwelling place of the Spirit of God; a church where the river of God's manifest Presence is experienced to the full.
We seek to be a launching pad for moves of the Holy Spirit that bring revival to the Church, transforms our community and impacts the world for Christ.
Cultivating a heightened sensitivity to the direction and flow of the Holy Spirit in our meetings and in our individual lives. Rather than follow a regular church formula we seek to encounter the Living God in fresh ways every time we meet. We value giving God time and space in our meetings, allowing opportunity for the Holy Spirit to move, for ministry and for waiting in His Presence. Let us give up our own control and agenda and allow God to rule and reign in His Church.
Inviting His manifest Presence through high praise and intimate worship, open hearts and obedience to His voice. We encourage the Gifts of the Spirit for personal and communal edification.
Looking to remain current and at the forefront of what the Spirit is doing around the world. We welcome input from wherever God is moving and whoever He is empowering.
Building an engine room of prayer at the very core of our church. Prayer is the heartbeat of Spirit-filled, transformative power, true fruitfullness and effectiveness, all wisdom and strategy.
Fostering faith and expectation for revival and transformation. Our heart is for the city of St Albans and the surrounding region.
Being a river of the Holy Spirit's life and power into the city, the nation and the world.
Joining with churches of like heart, mind and spirit for the promotion of the
King and His Kingdom.
To be Spirit-empowered people who transform their world...
We want to be a people who seek first the Kingdom of God, demonstrating the love, power and authority of the King to the Church and to the world.
We want to be a community of individuals steeped in maturity and Christ-likeness; people capable of leading others into that same depth and maturity.
Seeking the supernatural manifestation of God’s Kingdom power within our midst and taking it out into the world.
Enabling and equipping people to discover and operate in their various calls, gifts and abilities, both natural and super-natural, as recognised by the Body.
Bringing salvation to the unsaved through individual and church initiatives.
Spreading the gospel message world-wide and sharing mercy through missional activity.
Nurturing people into maturity, healing and wholeness through the teaching of the Word, anointed ministry and pastoral care. Helping people discover the Father’s heart and enable them to demonstrate that heart to others.
Fostering a heart of generosity and selfless giving - of love, of resources, of time and energy.
Valuing a servant-hearted attitude that is willing to minister to others, in whatever capacity, in order to prepare a dwelling place for God’s Presence and bring about the extension of His Kingdom.
