Evangelism We do this through our regular weekend services and other meetings. As well as these we have our special Sunday services such as Christmas Family Service, Easter Family Service, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. In summary, the vision of the Church is as follows:
- To make heaven.
- To take as many people as possible with us.
- To have a member of RCCG in every family of all nations.
- To accomplish (1) above, holiness will be our lifestyle.
- To accomplish (2) and (3) above, we will plant churches within 5 minutes walking distance in every city and town of developing countries and within 5 minutes driving distance in every city and town of developed countries. We will pursue these objectives until every nation in the world is reached for Jesus Christ our Lord.
There is nothing that God wouldn’t give to ensure strength of relationship with His people, and that’s how He wants His house to be – founded and built upon relationships.
One of the things that made David a stand out man and leader was his integrity of heart (Ps 78:72). We can have the best music, preaching, building and ministries, but integrity of heart is what is crucial to God.
Nothing worthwhile in life is built without commitment. Enthusiasm is great but if it is not followed through with consistency, then ultimately it is just wind and noise. But we value the substance of commitment.
Daniel distinguished himself in the land because of his excellent spirit. God has graciously given us the most excellent Spirit of all – His Holy Spirit. Therefore, in giving God our best, we should in all things be excellent.
The Word of God warns us that without it we wander aimlessly and ultimately perish. As a Church we understand the vitality and power that accompanies Godly vision. Vision is the personal word of God to a believer or company of believers to lead, guide and direct them into God’s plan for their future.
To please God we must be people of faith. Not just faith in anything and everything, but faith in God and His word. Our words must reveal it and our lives need to back it up. As a church this is one of our core values that is seen in every arena of church life.
If we don’t have life then we have to wonder if God is in the place. And as individuals, if we don’t have life we have to ask the same question. Although we appreciate the power of a healthy, godly habit, may nothing we do just stem out of ritual and religion.
