WORSHIP: ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN
"We believe it is our primary purpose and privilege to minister to the Lord in worship.
As we worship, we are joining thousands of angels and people of every tribe, nation, and generation in worshipping the Lamb around the throne. He is forever worthy.
This is part of fulfilling the prayer Jesus taught us to pray, 'On earth as in Heaven'. Our praise and worship enthrones Jesus, inviting his manifest presence to flood every area of life, shifting atmospheres and attracting Heaven's invasion into the earth - an atmosphere where all things are possible.
We believe God is releasing a new level of freedom in creative expressions of worship (flagging, dance, painting and more), as He is the ultimate in creativity. Our heart is that He alone would be glorified."

DANCE AND WORSHIP ARTS:
IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH
"We believe that we were created to worship God in Spirit and in Truth.
The truth is that God is a loving God who desires to have an intimate relationship with us. We believe that we are called to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. The language of dance and flagging is an outward expression of this inward relationship with God.
There is a freedom that is released as we worship God with all that is within us. The Hebrew word “Nathar” is used in scripture, which means to loose, and to set free. The Greek word “Agalliasis” found in the new testament means to rejoice and to leap. Oh, how very much we have to rejoice about as we get to know God deeper!
There are many opportunities to experience this, from Sunday mornings to Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 7:30 -9:00 at a worship and prayer time. There are also also periodic extended worship evenings where 2 – 4 hours are given to worship freely. You can also inquire about opportunities for mentorship and instruction in this area of dance and flagging."
