As a contemporary, soul winning church in Cambridge, we are committed to seeking the lost, loving Christ, making disciples and helping the poor. We do this through the following series of connections, which we believe are biblical, attainable and inspirational. These four principles constitute our church vision.
Connect to God
King's is a charismatic church, connected to the world wide Pentecostal Movement and part of the UK Assemblies of God network. As Christians, we believe in being "born again" by repentance from sin and trusting in Jesus Christ as Saviour. We are passionate about knowing the Lord, hungering and thirsting for His presence and receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, giving us power for service. Our church meetings are full of life, as we seek to touch God through worship, prayer and the manifestation of spiritual gifts. The Bible as God’s infallible Word is central and we are dedicated to its study and application for today. Members of the church are expected to exhibit genuine holy lifestyles and righteous conduct through a daily connection with God.
Connect to Each Other
King's is also a fellowship church and believe it is important, where possible, to do life and faith together. This is outworked especially through our "connect groups" which meet on a bi-monthly basis during the year, usually in people's homes, and give opportunity for people to have fun and get to know each other outside of church. There are also special times when the men and women meet up separately for breakfasts and ‘soaking’ evenings, as well as in larger gatherings. It is part of our church’s DNA to welcome new people among us and to consolidate them into the fellowship. We are serious about unity with other churches and among ourselves, and church members are expected to love and speak well of one another at all times.
Connect to the City
King's is developing into a community church. We have adopted a strategy called "Sunday Monday Church," desiring to connect with and care for an additional group of people who perhaps don't share our Christian faith but are able, through their use and application of the church's resources, to become part of our "Monday Church" community. Each week, we host a free Parent and Toddlers' group, a youth club, and a safe meeting place for those struggling with mental health. Every two months, we run CAP Money - a night class for those wanting greater power over debt and finance, and we are currently looking at ways to minister to those in prison.
Connect to the Nations
King's is also a mission church. We believe that it is important to share the good news about Jesus both at home and abroad (Acts 1:8) and we give time for evangelism training. The church supports missions' work financially but is also committed to being a missions-going church as well as a missions-giving church. Through partnerships with World Ministries, Next Level International and Tear Fund, the fellowship is seeking to develop strong links with missionary opportunities in other nations, and to send teams on short-term missions. We are convinced that any church, whatever its size, can have an impact upon the world and we are seeking to do this by God's grace.
