We gather regularly for worship to express our love for God. Relying on the Holy Spirit, we offer Him heartfelt, joyful and reverent worship. In corporate worship we are also nurtured spiritually through prayer and the preaching of God’s word.
The following persons and ministries help facilitate congregational worship:
- Worship Leaders
- Lord's Supper Servers

Prayer is an expression of our dependence on God. We give high importance to both private and corporate prayer through which we can grow closer to God, avail of His guidance, enabling and provision for every of need.
Below are the ministries for prayer:

We aim to share the gospel – the good news of salvation in Christ with wisdom and patience, respecting people’s freedom, depending on the guidance of the Holy Spirit and motivated by love.
- Each believer shares the gospel to others as the Spirit opens opportunities.
- The gospel is also proclaimed in corporate worship and fellowship.
Along with evangelism is missions-- a ministry that helps people in their time of need in harmony with the spirit of the gospel.

I. Ministry of Giving
Financial gifts or offerings are used to support the ministries of the church. We recognize tithing (the giving of 10% of income) as a commendable practice of giving to express joyful thankfulness to God but should not be a legalistic requirement to be imposed on people. The New Testament highlights cheerful, generous and faithful giving that goes even beyond tithing to honor God and contribute toward godly causes. Christian giving is enabled by faith and prompted by love, not by guilt or compulsion.
There are different kinds of offerings:
- General Fund Offerings (Tithes and Offerings used for general operations and other ministries of the church)
- Missions Offerings (Offerings designated to support mission ministries. All offerings gathered in the prayer meetings are used for ministries under missions.)
- Special Offerings (Offerings for specific ministry project)
