Connection

Apostolic Ministry and Biblical Leadership

 

"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”" Ephesians 4:11-13

 

Biblical Leadership is relational, servant oriented and empowering. The Biblical intention is for the five-fold ministry gifts (Apostolic Ministry) to be recognized and operational for the Church to advance the Kingdom. Grace Covenant is open to building relationships with established churches and ministries which are interested in belonging to a ministry family for the purpose of Kingdom community and partnership.

 

Team Concept for Ministry

 

Grace Covenant is a Family of Christian churches and ministries which are evangelical and Spirit-filled. Our passion is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ for salvation and to disciple believers toward a Spirit-filled Christian life of purity and power, to serve the Kingdom purposes of God. Our mission is to bring this message and ministry to all nations. Our heart is to link in partnership with other like-minded churches and ministries combining our efforts for the work of the Gospel. We believe strongly that ministry flows through relationship and community. Belonging to a broader fellowship, investing in relationships and serving in partnership, ministries will be encouraged and strengthened for their individual tasks of ministry. Corporately, we will make a greater impact for the Kingdom of God through our team effort. We believe we can do more together for Jesus than we can do separately.
