  • How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls!

  • Why is it so important that you are with God and God alone on the mountain top? It's important because it's the place in which you can listen to the voice of the One who calls you the beloved.

He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts. --A.W. Tozer
  • Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one's heart, its pleasures and its pains, to a dear friend. Tell God your troubles, that God may comfort you; tell God your joys, that God may sober them; tell God your longings, that God may purify them; tell God your dislikes, that God may help you conquer them; talk to God of your temptations, that God may shield you from them: show God the wounds of your heart, that God may heal them. If you thus pour out all your weaknesses, needs, troubles, there will be no lack of what to say. Talk out of the abundance of the heart, without consideration say just what you think. Blessed are they who attain to such familiar, unreserved intercourse with God. --Francois Fenelon

Gordon 
  • The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity…if we want to see might wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and might things which thou knowest not. ~ J. Hudson Taylor

Our Logo
  • The emblem represents the Cross embracing a person (the bride of Christ), for it is because of God's love for all of us that Jesus died on the Cross so that everyone who believes in Him will inherit the promise of eternal life (to know God and His Son Jesus Christ-John 17:3). The emblem is not distinguished easily, since it is a prophetic action (the lifting of the veil) for it is only in the recreated life and embracing arms of Jesus Christ that we can see and truly be set free.
Our Slogan 
  • Sharing His Love A Pattern To Live By
  • We have been blessed by receiving the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Prayer is the way we share our love, drawing all people into fellowship with God our Father and His Son Jesus Christ. When Jesus prayed for the sick, the lost and those possessed, it was always preceded with His compassion for them. It is through this compassion and love that they receive their identity in Christ Jesus. This is not a calling it is a way of living, a biblical pattern to live by, as we trust in Christ Jesus.
Jesus Is Enough
  • Consider Luke 5:5-6
  • Simon answered him, “Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net.”
  • When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking".
  • Therefore
  •  Enter the true Shabbat rest and rest from your own works as you place your trust in Jesus and His ability to do the impossible. When Jesus looked at the harvest
  • that was  ready, He called on us to pray unto the Lord of the harvest.
