Ephesians 4:11-13 (NLT)
Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do His Work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the fill and complete standard of Christ.
We envision an apostolic prophetic training church where people come together, have their gifts identified, developed and sharpened to help expand the Kingdom of God through practical experience. The church is centered around the gifts of the members so we can have a greater manifestation of God’s glory in and outside of the church.
We envision every member, from the youngest to the oldest, to learn to hear the voice of God, follow His leading, be who God has called them to be, so they can minister and teach the Word of God in boldness, confidence, and love. We create an environment where members can safely make mistakes. This empowers every member to teach and minister the Word of God, pray for others, operate in the Gifts of the Spirit and walk by faith.
We envision a place that nourishes a Godly family environment. A place where the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit is developed and released in every member. Through this, our church is a place of healing and deliverance for all who come, so everyone can live a victorious life and see their God-given dreams come true.
We envision an environment that cooperates with the Holy Spirit in order to unite our church with other ministries to help fulfill the needs of the community.
We envision STLNTC to be a limitless place where people begin to minister the Word of God boldly through social media, radio and TV programs as the Holy Spirit leads. We see a place where books and curricula can be birthed to help believers grow in faith.
