An Apostolic Centre is called to connect the Body of Christ for Training, Activation, & Release. The Centre believes in being a clear manifestation or demonstration of the Kingdom of God on earth. Although, for that to occur effectively, an Apostolic Centre must cultivate a vision capable of manifesting the Power of God within the seven Mountains of societal influence: Religion; Family; Government; Education; Arts & Entertainment; Media; and Business.
THE GOAL OF APOSTOLIC CENTRES
The Goal of Apostolic Centres is to Transform the seven mountains of societal influence by establishing Micro Churches on the seven mountains of societal influence. Micro church is wherever two or more are gathered together working on a Kingdom initiative in a mountain.
These Seven Mountains of societal influence are said to influence the thoughts and behaviors of people and society as a whole…These Spheres can be spheres of influence for good or for evil. Spheres receptive to the ideas, words, thoughts and actions of the Kingdom of God or Spheres receptive to the thoughts, ideas and actions of the Kingdoms of this World and of Satan who seeks to control them.
Influences us to worship God in spirit and in truth or through a spirit of religion. The spirit of religion that dominates this mountain distorts worship and truth with the doctrines of man, and a denial that the Holy Spirit and power of God are part of His plan for man today.
Empowers us with the blessing or enslaves us with the curse. As the alignment of God and man became distorted, so did the alignment within the family to the point that most parents have turned over their responsibility for moulding the minds of their children to the schools and the media. This means the dominant influence in the lives of children and youth are the messages of the powers and principalities that currently control the culture.
Restrains evil or enables it to prosper. Prideful ambition and a spirit of control are primary influencers on the government mountain.
Communicates the truth and principles of God or the deception of the enemy. In most countries the focus of education has shifted from Godly principles, values and service to the rights and abilities of each man to reason truth for himself.
Interprets information and events through the lens of good or evil. The doom and gloom that dominates the media is the result of the spirit of fear, one of the controlling spirits on this mountain.
- ARTS / ENTERTAINMENT
Celebrates or distorts values and virtue. Man was made to be a worshiper and to use his creative gifts to glorify the creator. Instead his gifts have been perverted to glorify man and bring pleasure to himself, resulting in what some are calling “Grand Theft Culture”.
Distributes resources used to honour God or celebrate man. The spirit of Mammon that is at the top of this mountain convinces us that money is the source of our prosperity and we have to get it ourselves or poverty will be our lot in life. The faith that holds to God as our source breaks the power of this spirit. This mountain finances all the others.
