Revival/Renewal of the 90s became Kingdom/Revival and is further transitioning into Apostolic/Kingdom Revival.

Our beliefs and objectives – taken from Ephesians 4:1-16 (NKJ)
- We seek always “to walk worthy of the calling with which [we] were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
- We believe in One God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and in One Church – the Body of Christ: “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
- We believe in Holy Spirit gifts and Ministries. “But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men. He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
- We share one objective: “until we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.. according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
