Charter: Always maintain a place of worship for all nations, provide dormitory for the needy, and freedom of worship for all people under the Apostolic Doctrine.
Our Aim: To unite all people of all races to God by the Gospel of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Let men see what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God, and that we be blameless and harmless, the Sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom we shine as lights in the world, holding forth the word of life. To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death, to guide their feet into the way of peace. (Titus 2:13-14, I Peter 2:9, Philippians 2:15-16, St. Luke 1:79).
Our Duty: To visit the fatherless and the widow, to lift the fallen, visit the sick, support the weak, encourage the fainthearted, comfort the feeble minded, point the lost to the way of salvation, encourage all believers to see a spirit-filled life (Ephesians 5:18, Acts 19:1-16), and be ready for the coming of our Lord (James 1:27, I Thessalonians : 4:16. Mark 16:15-18, St Matthew 25:1-13).
It is our duty as partakers of the Royal Priesthood, to offer supplications, prayers, intercessions and give thanks for all men, for kings, governors, magistrates, and all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty (I Peter 2-9, Rev 1:6, I Timothy 2:1-4, Roman 13:1-7). To submit ourselves to every ordinance of man for the conscience sake, whither it be king supreme, or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by Him for the punishment of evil doers and for the praise of them that do well. Pay tribute also for they are God’s Ministers. Render therefore to all their dues tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom, honor to whom honor. Owe no man anything but to love one another, so long as these ordinances do not infringe upon the liberty of service toward God. (I Peter 2:13-17. St. Matthew 22:21).
