The vision of Cathedral of Praise International Ministries was stated by our founder, Jesus the Christ, and recorded in Luke 4:18-19. This is a ministry of reconciliation ordained to assist the poor, to heal the hurting, to deliver the captive, to restore sagacity to the spiritually blind, to set free the oppressed, and to preach and teach the truth of the Gospel.
We have been commissioned to focus on people rather than programs, to create a spiritual atmosphere where true worshippers can praise Him in the freedom of the Spirit, and to break down the walls of tradition that make the Word of God of none effect.
We are commanded to edify the people of God by demonstrating unconditional love, by developing a community of believers who give of themselves so that no one is lacking anything, and by sowing the Word of God in our lives that a harvest of spiritual fruit might blossom forth.
"Where this is no vision (no redemptive revelation of God), the people perish."
"Write the Vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may (be able to) read it (easily and quickly) as he hastens by."
Foster Biblical Love: This divine characteristic should also be true of those who claim to be in Christ. Remember, Biblical love is demonstrated love.
Promote Fellowship: Unity should characterize the fellowship or communion of the community of believers. God is one; likewise, we should be one.
Build the Body: Whether it is evangelism or discipleship of believers, the goal is to present all people mature (complete) in Christ.
Nurture Spiritual Gifts: Ministry is a shared task – a task for which we are all responsible, each of us needs to find a suitable expression to exercise his or her spiritual gift(s).
