The Message

Today the Church of Jesus Christ stands on the threshold of a new era of power and glory. The reality of reaching and discipling the entire cities and nations has never been nearer than it is today. Governments and nations have run out of options; politicians, economists, educators, social scientists are looking for answers to today's global problems. The entire world is begging for God's Holy nation, the Church, to dismantle the doctrine of defeat, the empty traditions of man, and the disunity that keeps us apart and demonstrate the Kingdom of God. It is time for a return to the Movement for which Jesus and His Apostles lived and died. It is time to rediscover genuine Apostolic Christianity and reform Christ's Church in order that it might succeed in it's mission to disciple the nations and fill the whole earth with the glory of the sons and daughters of the kingdom of God. To return to the authentic faith of the Apostles the Church of the 21st century must:

1. Return to the leadership paradigm of Jesus and the early apostles.

From building our independent local churches to building His one global Apostolic Church, His way in the fellowship or communion of the apostles!
And from building our individual empires and kingdoms to extending and establishing His Kingdom in every area of life and in every place on planet earth.

2. Reclaim the Apostolic keys (the keys of the Kingdom) that Jesus gave to Peter and the early apostles.

This revelation of Christ, His Kingdom, and His Church will enable us to see Jesus as He really is and His Bride as an unstoppable force in history.

3. Return to the God-sized purpose of the Church.

From being focused on only saving souls and building our independent local churches to possessing entire cities and nations and transforming cultures bringing the Kingdom of heaven to the earth.

4. Rekindle the burned out leaders in the House of God.

The task of discipling cities and nations and filling the earth with the glory of God is far too big for one man or one group to try and do alone. Leaders need each other. We must learn to stand and work together for the sake of the Kingdom.

5. Return real apostles to their rightful place in the work of the Kingdom and the government of the Church.

This will enable us to move from only filling buildings to filling all things! Eph 4:11-13

Ern Baxter made the observation before he died, "George Kouri's teaching on the Kingdom is the best I have heard!"

The Passion that drives George Kouri to continue teaching and preaching, after more than fifty years of ministry, is his belief that we can explore, rediscover the foundations, reform the Church, and see the Kingdom of God established and victorious in the earth!
