Faith: Creed & Deed
As Christians we believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Saviour of the world (John 3:16). We believe in the Gospel (Good News) of salvation by faith in Christ based on the Bible, the Word of God (2 Tim 3:16–17). What you believe is important, because it defines you and shapes your identity. Equally important to your creed are your deeds. What you believe will be expressed by what you do. We seek to be a people of word and deed as salt of the earth and light in the world (Matt 5:13-16; Jas 2:14-26).

Care: People are important to God
God loves people and wants them to be well and prosper. Our shepherding will provide care and encouragement to first seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness in order to enter
and experience the blessings of God (Matt 6:25-34).

Worship: Connecting to God’s Heart
We constantly tap into God’s heart through worship. We seek His Face and long to be in His glorious presence. In this way, Heaven can touch us and His will be done on earth (M
att 6:9-10). This is a powerful way to move people forward in God’s destiny.

Holiness: Purity & Power
God wants us to live a holy life (1 Thess 4:3) in order to fulfil a holy calling (2 Tim 1:9). God wants us to be lead by His Spirit and have power by His Spirit as His witnesses (Rom 8:14; Acts 1:8). We therefore seek a life of holiness so that His power can move through us for His glory!

Competence: Equipping, Discipling & Training
We seek to be competent people, those who can offer quality services to make the world a better place
and serve our fellow human-beings. Leadership will equip, disciple and train the church towards godly success in a team work. ’Team work makes the dream work.’

Impact: Influence & Dominion
Through the love and power of God, we seek to make an impact in the world around us. Through doing the good works He has prepared for us (Eph 2:10), we give our lives as vessels for God to touch cities and nations. A proper chain of authority and solid team work will extend Kingdom government into the various domains individuals will operate in.

We are a cell life church that believe in fellowship                          
The heartbeat of the Cell Life office is people. We believe that every individual is important to God and has a role to play in
His kingdom. We want to see each individual grow in their love for God and reach their full potential through the care, love and support of home cells groups.

We are a cell life church that believe in training                                
It is about raising up a fearless people who will lay their lives down for someone else
; it’s about a fearless people who will dare to be the light. Home cell groups take place on Sunday nights through various home cells throughout the region.

We are a cell life church that believe in fun                                                                                                                                  Fellowship centres also around fun and socials. We organise great events that bring us closer together as friends and Christians. Come and join us!

Founders of Dunamis


The Late Senior Pastors Dr. H.L and P.N. Bester started with discipleship. The Strategic year – August 1994 – with 88 members. We received training for one year every Monday evening. Senior Pastor shared his heart/vision without realizing that he introduced the cell life to us. He role modeled relationships. We learned that it is impossible to trust God if you cannot trust a man. Relationships and unity became stronger.
