KGM Vision/Mission Statement
ISAIAH 35:5 – 10.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away”.
The highway mentioned in this passage formed the basis for the vision of Kingsway Global Ministries. This highway is The way of holiness;the Kingsway way. It is the assembly of the redeemed where the Lord’s awesome presence is experienced, bringing transformation to nations. It is a Prophetic and Apostolic entity instituted by God for the manifestation of blessings of the future kingdom. It will be for only those who walk in the king’s way. The grace of God upon this commission is known as” THE SCENT OF WATER”. And His banner over us is ANOINTING. Our message is bringing LIBERATION and TRANSFORMATION to the Nations of the world. And our assignment is to raise an END TIME ARMY for the harvest of Nations; and to prepare a people of ROYAL DYNASTY for the coming King.
We exist as God’s royal house of splendour to reach the unreached soul through the gospel; and raise same as God’s army to bring men out of spiritual bondage in every nation: thereby connecting them with their destinies in God.
