We are more than a church. We are an Apostolic Center. It is our calling and strategy to get the church into the people rather than just people into the church. For too long church has been a place to go, not something that we are. We desire to equip the saints for the work of ministry and release them into our city to be the church in the work places and neighborhoods of our community.
The leadership of RLM is dedicated to equip you for your destiny and place in the body of Christ. Those in covenant with us are not a part of RLM just to serve in church ministry; rather we desire to equip and release you into your purpose. Our joy is made complete when you walk in your destiny!!
We believe The five-fold Ministry of Ephesians 4 holds the key to being the church instead of just going to church.
""As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received… But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Eph. 4:1-6, 11-16)
The Apostle - Governs
The Prophet - Guides
The Pastor - Guards
The Teacher - Grounds
The Evangelist - Gathers
When the vision and revelation coming from the Apostle and Prophet are clarified and biblically grounded by the Teacher and guarded by the Pastor, then the Evangelist, with love and clarity from the other gifts, is able to gather the people. It is a team effort. The gifts must learn to rely on and honor one another’s different perspectives to gain the whole counsel of God. God’s design is organic, explained as a body working together. Each person brings his or her unique part to the whole, working together in the bond of peace.
