The Refuge is a place where everybody can be somebody! It is truly a refuge from the harsh world we live in; a place where the word of God is preached without hypocrisy or guile, but in honesty, faith and power.

Come into the Refuge and experience a supernatural turnover in your life.



  • We believe that the bible is the inspired ( God breathed ) infallible ( all true ) and inerrant (without error or contradiction) Word of God. It is the supreme and final authority in faith and practice.
  • We believe in the trinity; one God who exists in three distinct persons; Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and Savior of the world.
  • We believe Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross and on the third day He rose triumphant over death.
  • We believe that there is no other name given that man should be saved by but the name of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again.

Our Purpose:
Our purpose is to reach a hurting and dying generation with Jesus’ message of hope and compassion, into becoming Christ-like, releasing them to fulfil their God-ordained destinies in Church and in life as God’s instrument for reaching and touching our world, in order to bring Jesus glory.

Our Mission:
Our Mission is to build lives for life with the word of God.

Our Vision:
Our vision is to see men become all God has destined for them to become, raising a formidable generation of intercessors that will bring heaven to bear on earth, raising leaders to lead this generation and the next into their promised land.
