Core Values

 

Prayer

It is up to the church to pray God’s will into the earth. Jesus said, “I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven:and whatsoever thou loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:18-19).

 

Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on the earth through prayer. We as believers-the church are to destroy the works of the devil through prayer. The intercessory prayer meeting, 24/7 Prayer team, all-night prayer vigil exists to release the power of prayer

 

Worship

Our first command from God is to love Him with all our heart, soul and mind (Mathew 22:37). Ministry to the Lord comes before ministry to people. The “first love” is Jesus.

 

Praise is a calling given to every believer. “this people have I formed for Myself, they shall show forth my praise” (Isaiah 42:21).

The choirs, bands, orchestra, music teams, cantatas, and worship services all provide avenues to lead us into praise and worship, both as a body and individually.

Teaching

Foundational to all that is done in the Church is the Word of God. The apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor/teacher are given by God to train and equip the believers to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).

 

The Word of God builds and equips believers to be and do what God desires. The vision of Christian Life Center is to constantly nurture believers until they grow into full maturity.

Christian Life Bible Institute, Seminars, Sunday School, books, tapes, cell groups, Timothy and Lydia training, all provide training for the believer to be equipped to do the work of the ministry.

Fellowship

The church is a community of believers. It is a family-loving together and caring for each other.
We are a body with many members (I Corinthians 12:12).

 

Every member of the church needs the other members. God uses each of us to supply something to someone else.

The first believers in Act 2 shared their possessions with one another. They ate together, prayed together and worshipped together. Weekly Cell Groups, Sunday School Classes, and various age groups such as Children, youth, singles, couples and Married couples all provide meaningful fellowship opportunities.
 

Evangelism

“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).

 

The church is called to proclaim good news, heal the sick, deliver the oppressed and set the captive free (Luke 4:18).

We have the answer to the world’s problems and we must share Him. The purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is power to witness (Act 1:8).

All that we do in Prayer, worship, teaching, fellowship, is a preparation for Evangelism. God gave Jesus Because He loved the world. His love has not changed and we are to go to the unsaved with this message of God’s love.

Street witness teams, mission outreaches, door-to-door campaigns, tracts, benevolent ministries, all are instruments of evangelism.
