House Fellowship

VISION STATEMENT:

17501018_s

Divine transformation of lives and a living MFM church branch that is Inward, Outward, and Upward (Ezekiel 36:26, Romans 12:2).

The trio phrase upward / inward / outward defines Christians’ lives;

  • Upward – depicts relationship with God.
  • Inward – depicts inter-personal relationships within the church.
  • Outward – refers to relationship with nonbelievers.

Our following mission statements outline these three areas in words and in deeds.
