Our primary purpose is to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to those that come in contact with us and help them become what God designed to be. We exist to build lives for Kingdom Impact.
We recognize that deciding to join is Church is not a matter to be taken lightly, particularly when one has experienced disappoints with numerous local Assemblies, elsewhere. That is why we ask you to step out of the past and give yourself a Brand New Experience.
Our Brand Proposition

We are committed to helping you strengthen and solidify your life in Christ through the teaching of balanced, life-application, kingdom-focused Word of God. We are here to help you discover your life’s purpose in God and to support you to pursue that purpose. We are committed to using the Word of God to help you lead a productive life; maintain a strong family life, become an active citizen in your community, and contribute to Kingdom expansion through your everyday public engagement.
Our work is grounded in the following:
- Preaching the Word of God to save the lost;
- Teaching the Word of God to establish the saved;

We Would You Like To Join Us
If truly you seek a place where you can find love, acceptance, and encouragement in Christ to enable you fulfill God’s purpose for your life, we ask you to consider joining our Church family.
To help you make informed decision on this invitation, we have tried to answers a few questions that may agitate your mind. We owe you this responsibility!
Perhaps you ask…
- Will I Fit Here?
You may be concerned about acceptance. You may want to know if you will be accepted in our Church. We are a multi-cultural Church family with people of diverse ages, experience and exposures. That is why we have established Special Interest Groups (SIM) in the Church so that no matter where your background, there are people of similar language, exposure, interests, or circumstances you can identify with and relate with while you are in the Church.
- Will anyone want to know me?
You may be concerned about relationships. Yes! Everyone, including you, needs a friend and likes to enjoy quality relationships. This is one thing CGTM provides. We have created different opportunities for you to develop relationships within the congregation through ministry groups. Once you join, all you need to do is identify the Ministry Group that suites you and get involved immediately.
- Am I needed?
You may wonder if you will be valued. You wonder if there is anything you can contribute with your life when you join this Church. We recognize that people want to make impact with their lives. We know that people like you have gifts and talents; and would like to be recognized and valued for who they are and what they have. Certainly, your gifts matter; and your talents matter, too. The Church has created the environment for you to use your talent and abilities to serve God and make a difference.
- What is the advantage of joining?
“What is in it for me?” It’s about benefit. You ask, “How would joining this Church help me identify and fulfill God’s purpose for my life?” This is an important question, and we welcome it.
We recognize that the Kingdom of God is structured on benefits. It is not in bad taste if people want to know what they stand to benefit if they join a local Church. After all, Peter, the Apostle said to Jesus, we have left everything to follow you, what do we stand to gain? (Paraphrased) Jesus did not rebuke him or deride him for asking. Instead He assured Peter and the other Apostles, of their benefits, both here and hereafter.
Following from the Master’s example, at CGTM, we are proactive in figuring out ‘what’s in it for you’. We offer spiritual, social, and other benefits, once you become a member.
