The Lord’s Church of Restoration is a New Testament Church. Our assignment is to give men, women, boys and girls a better quality of life through the preaching and teaching of the gospel, by equipping and training them for the work of ministry through Discipleship and Life Cell experiences. Our focus is to fulfill God’s intent by being the examples of His wisdom through worship and praise, effective prayer and bringing restoration to mankind in every area of life. We are to make God known through evangelism, which is our supreme task.
The Church and Ministry
We are an Apostolic Cell Church (Acts 2:42-46), which is to be people oriented verses program-based. It is one of the most effective ways to reach, touch and love people while their lives are being shaped for ministry. Our departments and inner ministries function in a cell format, which is known as a “community of love”. The cell ministry provides discipleship, instructional teaching and nurturing for life experiences.
