“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

It is a great honor for us to bid you welcome! We believe that the CHURCH is a special place of communion and transformation. It is the CHURCH that illuminates the world around us, therefore being connected means more than just attending services, it means to discover and fulfill the purpose of God, which gives meaning and fulfillment to man’s life. You can experience the best that God has for you! Believe it! And welcome!

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

When God showed us the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, what we saw before us was a great challenge. Our hearts were filled with faith as the Lord opened the doors for a church of influence to be established, not only there but everywhere the Holy Spirit led us unto hungry hearts.

We are certain that this project already existed in God’s heart, now it has become reality through the lives of  strong and courageous people, who pay the price to see His will established on Earth.

Our greatest desire is to build a church that will impact our generation with a lifestyle that declares that Jesus Christ is Lord.

“[…] whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these […]” John 14:12

We believe in God the Father, Creator of all things. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Bible teaches us that our salvation is by grace (gift of God) through faith in Jesus. We believe in Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, who died for us, and that through His blood we are cleansed of sin. We believe that He rose again the third day so that we may have a victorious life with Him forever.

We believe in the Holy Spirit and the gifts that He bestows on those who are baptized in Him. We believe in the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which enables men and women to live a life of power and testimony, producing true fruit that remains: the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 6).

We believe in a life of victory over sin as a consequence of walking in the Spirit. We believe in the importance of showing and proclaiming the love of Jesus Christ to every person, those who are near as well as those who are far, fulfilling the words of Jesus to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19).

We believe in the unity for which Jesus prayed (John 17), therefore we also pray for the blessing of other churches, that they may do God’s work, having a zeal for unity. We believe in a life of power, holiness and love, which will be the mark of the great spiritual revival that will take place before the return of the Lord Jesus.
