EQUIP CHURCH is an apostolic equipping, disciple making and missions sending church based on Ephesians 4:11-12 & Matthew 28:19.
EQUIP CHURCH doesn't think of it's members a sheep to keep in a Sunday morning pen but as an army of well trained soldiers to be released into the world to take the Kingdom of God with them and to release it to overrun and destroy the kingdom of darkness wherever they are sent.
EQUIP CHURCH is a cell church. It's a church made up of cells and not a church with cells. The difference being is that cells are the core of the church, all pastoring and ministry among the members happens in the cell groups and Pastor Steve oversees it all. Cells are the church!
EQUIP CHURCH members will begin in a cell, always remain in some type of a cell group and be strongly encouraged to become a cell leader and plant their own cells.
The cell church strategy focuses on preparing God's people to serve. It’s guiding people from sitting in church to helping them go through a process of training, cell involvement, and cell leadership.
The purpose of cell groups is to make disciples that make disciples!
EQUIP CHURCH will equip all cell members through our Discipleship Track and those who will be future cell leaders through our Leadership Track. For those who want to be even more focused on doing the ministry of Jesus, church planting and missions work we have University to the Nations.
EQUIP CHURCH is also different in it's approach to cell groups in that they can be planted not just in homes but also anywhere within the 7 Spheres of Cultural Influence. This can be done by any member who has been a part of a cell, gone through the Discipleship & Leadership Tracks and has been released by their cell leader to expand into a new cell.
Once there are enough cells then we will begin to have Celebration Gatherings with all cells coming together for community strengthening, fellowship, teaching and preaching of the Word, and for corporate worship, prayer and ministry time.
EQUIP CHURCH will focus on reaching poor children and their families locally, regionally and globally to minister to all their needs through outreaches, ministry centers and overseas missions.
