Dance / Flag
Dance / Flag
Dance Ministry is dedicated to worshipping the Lord through the art of dance. We seek to glorify God in all aspects of our lives and praise dancing is another way in which we desire to please God. Our conviction of this ministry comes from Psalms 150:4, where we are to “praise Him with the tambourine and dance”.
Flags, as well as banners, are used in worship to exalt Jesus and His name before men and also before the powers of darkness. They may also declare our redemption through Jesus and His blood. During worship or during ministry time, our flags proclaim the dominion of God's Kingdom and mark our Spiritual territory. They also serve to invite and usher in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

It is a ministry that everyone is to be involved in from the least in the kingdom of God to the greatest.

Mission & Evangelism
Mission & Evangelism
As a church, we are called to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) according to the Great Commission that Jesus gave before He was ascended to Heaven. We believe that this commandment is in the heart of God and that our God is the God of mission, being the missionary Himself who came from Heaven to save mankind. The mission that Jesus had while on earth is now our mission since we are the Body of Christ. What he did in his physical body, we are to continue as his spiritual body - the church. What is that mission? Introducing people to God! The Bible says "... Christ changed us from enemies into his friends and gave us the task of making others his friends also."
Evangelism is sharing the good news of Jesus Christ (i.e. the gospel). As with all other aspects of Christian ministry, evangelism should be done in the power and under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Because evangelism is an expression of God's love for those who don't have a relationship with Him, therefore we have to trust Him to bring about the results that He longs for.
MultimediaMultimedia ministry is to carry and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our visually-driven, ever-changing world through the use of technology and media. The ministry is entrusted to equip other ministries in the church to use digital and electronic media as worship and outreach tools.
