The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched a Request for Applications for the Development Grants Program providing support in the three sectors of microenterprise, water and climate change adaptation. Applications can be submitted by indigenous, local NGOs from different countries or private and voluntary organizations in the US.

The Development Grants Program aims to create new partnerships between USAID and NGOs which have limited or have not been able to access prior funding directly from the USAID. Through this program, the Agency seeks to expand its network of NGOs and build their capacity.

    8. STATEMENT OF VISION
    The great commission by me Lord Jesus Christ is our mandate. We be¬lieve and trust that God will use His church, to accomplish His purposes on earth.
    Evangelistic church of the Lord Jesus Christ is to be:-
    1. A fellowship whose worship brings Gods power into the church and extends that power through the lives of believers.
    2. A body of believers directed by the Spirit of God and that baptismal the Holy Spirit is both personal blessing and is an endowment of power to witness and service in fulfillment of the Great Commission.
    3. A fellowship that has love and concern for people who are hurt and lonely. These people are reached through evangelism and churches planted in strategic locations where these people are. Home for disadvantaged such as orphanage, disabled and the aged will be built as God provides funds.
    4. The church that targets the community and is concerned with the physical, spiritual and material needs of the people. As God provides funds, the church intends to build hospitals, schools, colleges and complex conference centre for hosting national and international meetings.
    5. A church that will operate income generating projects that will enable the Gospel to be preached.
    6. A church that is committed to the authority of Holy Scriptures, the Bible for faith, and direction.

    8. A church that focuses on the local congregation where the pastor takes care and leads all members to exercise spiritual gifts, ministries and talents.

    1. Preach full gospel of Jesus Christ (God’s word) in the power of Holy Spirit through evangelistic crusades and missions.
    2. Raise leaders with ministerial gifts to carry out missionary work. This will involve training and equipping leaders for mission work.

    10. CHALLENGES
    Evangelistic Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is facing great and complex challenges which include many upcoming churches and fast changing world behavior. Wrong religious doctrinal beliefs such as self righteous¬ness, false salvation, witch Crafts, anti Christs, devil worship, cults, tribal beliefs, ancestral doctrines, generational curses, demonic beliefs and poverty are some of the church growth barriers and challenges. We have however taken an honest look at our challenges and face them without fear by the grace of God. It is our believe and acceptance that Evangelistic Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has a unique position for growth. We see the church as a divine work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ being the head and vital vessel called to usher in spiritual and physical healing of the perishing world. Through guidance and power of Holy Spirit, the Church is to grow, reach far and many churches will be planted in Kenya and beyond to meet the needs of people of all levels and races in life.

    10. FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO CHURCH GROWTH
    This is a fast growing church with a vision. Through God’s favour and grace the church has not only grown at Kaptama but other local churches have been planted. Factors which have significantly contributed to growth are as follows:-
    1. Faithfulness and steadfast to our call to reach the world with gospel of Jesus Christ.
    2. Our believe that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the master plan¬ner and builder of His church.
    3. Dependence upon the Holy Spirit.
    4. Obedience to the word of God.
    5. Evangelism which include house to house and open air meetings.
    6. Home fellowship mid-week meetings at various locations-(cell groups)
    7. Transparency and accountability to church members and other people.
    8. Desire to retain powerful praise and worship.
    9. Prayer- Encouragement to members of the church to observe personal and communal prayers.
    10. Conducting meetings such as Revivals, Seminars, Conferences, Con¬ventions, for all groups. Youth, women and men groups have their time to hold their own meetings.
    11. Preaching holiness and righteousness as God’s standard requirement for His people.
    12. Emphasis on bringing up Sunday school children to fear and honour God.
    13. Bring up a strong Youth Ministry that has a vision to reach the world with Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    14. Humble and good administrative leadership.
    15. Training to equip leaders for growth.
    Factors mentioned will continue to contribute to church growth physi¬cally, spiritually, and emotionally.
