Blueprint

At APC we seek to build the local church (community of believers) according to God's blueprint. We believe that God has revealed in Scripture what He desires His people to become and the kind of House He desired to build. We see 10 aspects to God's blueprint for the local church, as depicted below.

GOD’S BLUEPRINT FOR THE LOCAL CHURCH

THE BRIDE

In love with our Bridegroom God
A HOUSE OF PRAYER AND WORSHIP

Continuous worship and prayer

THE TEMPLE OF GOD

God dwelling among us and His glory revealed through us
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES

Intimacy that births fruitfulness

THE LAMPSTAND

Our standing before Him makes us light in a dark world
THE BODY OF CHRIST

We represent Him and carry out His purposes
THE FAMILY OF GOD

We live as His family here on earth
THE PILLAR OF TRUTH

We uphold truth in this world
GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE

We demonstrate Kingdom culture and values
AN ARMY

We overthrow the works and powers of darkness
THE EARLY CHURCH
A prototype to follow and exceed

At APC we seek to build the House of God according to this blueprint by developing people and growing as a community in all of these 10 areas. All that we do, the Sunday sermons, the ministries and outreaches of the church express one or more facets of God's blueprint for the House of God.
