Assembly is the gathering together of God’s people, the remnants. God is looking for a people who will answer that call to serve God wholeheartedly rather than doing what the world is doing. In a time where many people have forgotten God and live a life of self, God is looking for a remnant to carry on the task.


The Bible declares in 2 Tim. 2: 2 that, the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. We have a responsibility to commit to the next generation the in-Christ reality and with men and women of life passion


The word Remnant comes from Isaiah 1:9, which says, “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we would have been like Sodom…”There are a people whom God has reserved for himself in these last days to fervently do the will of God and these people are from every race and culture.
