When you first come to El-Shaddai Church you may find it a bit of an adjustment to fit in to begin with, because we don’t adhere to regular church tradition or even local culture.
We may be in England, but we aren’t a “British” church. We may be in America, but we aren’t an “American” church. We are in Africa, but we aren’t an “African” church. We understand that Jesus is not a local man, and so we cannot build a church culture that is based on any other culture. We have to build it on Kingdom culture alone.
Here are some distinctives of El-Shaddai:
We understand that our first calling is to be a child of God and to walk with Him every day. That is more important to us than anything else.
We experience the miraculous in our lives because we put God first. No church service is complete without His manifest presence!
Our worship is lively and engaging, and it is always focused on Jesus, not on us. As we worship Him together we set an atmosphere and prepare a place for the King to walk among us and take His place in our midst.
- We have a culture of sacrifice and generosity. We serve the purposes of God with wholeheartedness.
- We prioritize the things of God and bring our children up to understand that God is important. He’s not the first thing we drop when other options come crowding in.
- There are no passengers in the church. We’re going to the nations and we recognize that we are at war for the souls of men. As we do so, we see incredible increase and blessing on our lives, because God has set up the Kingdom in such a way that the fastest way of getting a breakthrough in our own lives, is to minister to someone else.
- In El-Shaddai we are givers, and we don’t need to be manipulated in order to tithe and sow. We will never line people up and make a show of how much they have given. We sow because we are honorable and because we are grateful for the incredible love and saving power of God in our lives.
- We show up on time. Something happens in the realm of the spirit when we all passionately pursue the King.
- We win souls. We are here on the planet to connect others to their eternal destiny and to draw them back from separation from their Heavenly Father.
- We don’t sit on anyone, we lift them up. We operate in love and honor towards everyone because we are a global love revolution.
We would love for you to join us!
