What We believe:
A/ We are a community…
1/ Relationships: Loving and mutually supportive relationships are in the foundations of everything on which we build. Our primary goal is to build relationships, not structure. From the foundation of relationships, we believe the Kingdom will be built.
2/ Our goal is not to build a church. Our goal is to build people. Through this, these people will go forth and impact the Kingdom of God (the real church)
3/ Catch and release. Several years ago, God told Ann we are to have a catch and release ministry. Freely people will come, freely they will go. We know that as we release, God will bring others into the ministry. As shepherds, we tend to, but do not own the sheep. God does. We have no claim on people.
4/ Communication: We believe in strong communications where people discuss their issues and work out their differences in loving supportive relationships.
5/ Training and equipping: Through relationships with people, training and equipping needs will be identified, and material and curriculum will be sourced or created to meet the need.
B/ Spiritual minded…
1/ Worship is one of the key elements of this Ministry. It is the beginning and the end of everything we do.
2/ Need and desire for prayer. We believe that a strong foundation of prayer and intercession is essential to the ministry.
3/ Prophecy and discernment. It is essential that we become a discerning people, like the Sons of Issachar to determine the times and seasons of God. To this end we desire to raise up a people who can use the gifts of prophecy and discernment.
4/ Spiritually inspired teaching. We believe in teaching the body, led by God and His word, inspired and life impacting material that will bring healing and release to people.
C/ Raising up and releasing people…
1/ The ground is level at the foot of the cross. We believe in equality for all believers and that no one is above another based on calling, gift, title, or ability.
2/ We believe in a team leadership model where everyone is encouraged and expected to use the gifts they have been given.
3/ We believe that all are called by God, and our goal will be to discover the gifts and talents in each person and to call them into their full potential and ministries in the Lord.
4/ We believe in the priesthood of believers, where everyone is called to ministry, and accountability and operating as a team are essential to forwarding the Kingdom.
5/ Our goal is to pour everything we have into the people God brings to us to see them come into their full potential, then to release them. We expect that as we raise up and bring people into their potential, our gathering will be a small part of what is going on in their lives. We expect ministry opportunities such as missions, teaching opportunities, conferences, and all other expressions will open for everyone. Our gathering will be a hub where people will be coming and going as they move out into the body to be Kingdom shakers.
D/ To our Community and Beyond
1/ We believe we will be used by God to affect our community, our Province, our region, and our Country for revival. We are preparing for the harvest.
2/ We believe God will use us to affect nations. We have a strong heart to use the wealth we have been given to support children in underdeveloped countries.
