Planted in 1989 by 28 disciples of our Lord Jesus from USA, these young men and women sacrificed their vibrant careers, homes, and relationships to help realize God's dream to make disciples in the Philippines. Since then, dozens of churches have been planted across the archipelago and thousands of lives have been changed for Christ.
We are a church with a mission to love God, love one another and to be faithful to the Great Commission.
We invite you to know this incredible love that God has for you and live out His plan for your life. Nothing can be more fulfilling than living out God's purpose for your life. Join us in changing the world together for Christ!
