In the same way that the nuclear family is central to raising up the next generation of people, the local church is central to raising up the next generation of believers.
We are committed to the biblical model of church which derives its structure and ethos from family.
We are committed to sending out people who will start local churches that will disciple & raise up the next generation of believers.
These churches will operate in free association with the sending churches, but not under their control.
