APC has a strong emphasis on equipping working professionals to live out their faith in the workplace and have impact and influence for God's Kingdom. Believers in the marketplace are on the frontlines for Kingdom advancement and hence need all the equipping and empowering available. We encourage believers to find and take their place as agents of transformation on the seven mountains of society (Business, Education, Government, Media, Art/Entertainment, Family, Religion). We encourage believers to walk in the anointing of God, expect miracles, demonstrate the work of the Spirit and display God's glory in the marketplace.
