We aim to demonstrate the Fathers heart of love to each other and those we serve and interact with.

We seek to be known in heaven not on earth. Therefore we will not promote our ministry or church but we seek to glorify Him.

We believe in godly government as leaders, fathers are called to serve, love, teach, exhort, comfort and rebuke the family under their authority in order to keep unity and order in His house.

We support those who are feeding us spiritually and the weak, directly with our tithes and offerings as we should not mussel the ox (Gal6:6-10, 1 Corinthians 9:1-15).

All the saints needs should be met by and through His body. This especially includes the poor, orphans and widows who are among us (James 1:27; Isaiah 58).
