TEACHING

It is important to us to have a Biblical foundation to our programme. Therefore, we try to pattern what we do on Acts 2:42, "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." Worship, service and evangelism are also part of our work and witness.
