Temple of Praise International (TOP) is a church that raises leaders for Jesus Christ. The leaders we raise are not intimidated or limited by situations or circumstances. We are a church without limits and a people of great destiny. Top is a member of the Evangelical Alliance and upholds the same articles of Faith with the Alliance.
Our vision is "equipping overcomers, establishing dominion."
In concrete terms, we are:
* equipping leaders with skills that made them relevant physically and spiritually.
* empowering them to step out and possess their grounds and motivating them to
* establish their God-given authority in every area of their lives.
The foundational Scripture upon which TOP is established is Gen. 1:28.
Everyone is a leader. Some choose to develop their leadership but others can not be bothered. Those that develop their leadership skills realise the benefits of leadership. Leadership is a choice and if you have made that choice, TOP is the place to be. We help you acquire the necessary leadership skills you need to make a mark for yourself, your family, community, nation and the kingdom of God.
In TOP, we preach the never changing word of God to the ever changing world of men.
