God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.
God uses each of us in building His Kingdom; we all have a part – stone by stone, brick by brick. As a church we have so many future plans for this House; our local and global outreaches and resources for the church family, to name a few. But more than anything we want to align our hearts with God’s heart.
When it comes to building the Kingdom of God, what God requires from us is PARTICIPATION. And when we do what we CAN do, God will do what we CANNOT do. This is what Heart for the House is all about. It’s an opportunity to build God’s kingdom and ACCELERATE the work by doing what we CAN DO, all the while trusting God to do what we CANNOT DO.
Here’s the principle: God works in our working.
WHAT IS HEART FOR THE HOUSE?
Heart for the House is our once a year opportunity to give over and above regular tithes and offerings where we sow financially in faith, trusting that God is our provider and that He can create the ability for a plentiful harvest (Deuteronomy 8:18). The amount of the offering is not the focus – it is about the heart of the giver and an unwavering trust in our faithful God. It is an offering not about equal giving, but rather about equal sacrifice.
Won’t you pray and ask God what YOU can do, knowing that as we do that TOGETHER, HE will do what we CANNOT do.
WHAT ARE WE TRUSTING FOR?

– Progress with the completion of the Pinehurst main auditorium
– improvements for our Won life building and Fisantekraal church campus
