The mandate from heaven is clear: London and the World for Christ. But limited financial resources are seriously curtailing our ability to accomplish clear God-given objectives.
The wonderful, faithful and regular giving of Kensington Temple people has allowed us to continue our highly effective ministry week in and week out and recent generosity has funded the full restoration of the KT building. I am so grateful to God for all the support people give us financially each week!
Every day many pleasing and encouraging things are happening throughout our ministry. However, for us to pioneer and conquer new territory we need to find brand new financial investment both from our KT family, but also from our friends all around the world.
In the natural world investors see the future potential of a company and buy shares in that company and thus in its future. The shareholders invest in the company so that it is resourced to pursue expansion and success. The shareholder also takes real ownership of the future vision and achievement of the company. The shareholders expect to receive future financial rewards and dividends from their financial investment.
If people will invest in a vision for natural and earthly rewards how much more should we invest in the work of the Kingdom for heavenly reward? Please click the links in the menu to the right to see our Kingdom Shareholders portfolio and how you can contribute.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6: 19-21
We are looking for 'Kingdom Shareholders', people who believe in the God-given vision of Kensington Temple and will invest financially into key pioneer areas of our ministry. We must ensure the future success of achieving our God-given mandate. KT Kingdom Shareholders will become financial and spiritual stakeholders, pioneers in a bold development of our mission to win London and the World for Christ!
All donations to Kensington Temple are received as charitable gifts with no expectation of financial return. The reward for our giving will ultimately come from God alone. We will also be able to rejoice together in the reports of how our giving has impacted people all over the world.
A number of years ago we attempted to express our vision through a simple diagram. We came up with 'the triangle of influence'.
The base of the triangle represents the foundational part of our ministry:
To grow a strong, vibrant, multi-ethnic, London-wide church. London City Church (LCC) is the name we give to all that we do in London. It consists of thousands of people networking through central gatherings in Kensington Temple, scores of congregations meeting in the KT Satellite Churches and hundreds of cell groups ministering across the length and breadth of greater London.
The apex of the triangle represents the central thrust of our purpose: to reach out to London and the world through the life-changing gospel in obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). The two sides of the triangle represent our mandate to be a blessing to the wider body of Christ (churches other than Kensington Temple) and to serve the wider community influencing our whole society for Christ.
This balanced and well-rounded approach is now established as part of our vision and values. It expresses who we are and what we are called to do. All that we do is, in one way or another, an outworking of this 'triangle of influence'. Whatever burden God puts on your heart for the kingdom we can partner to carry it!
