REVELATION. REACTION. REVOLUTION
The name Doxa Deo is a combination of two words from different languages. Doxa is the Greek word for “Glory” and Deo is the Latin word for “God”. In combination, these words reflect our ministry’s deep desire to see God’s glory breaking like a wave over our multi-ethnic cities, changing them to places where His Kingdom is established.
The presence of Doxa Deo as a ministry goes beyond having church on a Sunday. We are here to serve our cities in such a way that we contribute to the establishing of the Lordship of Jesus Christ in every sphere of society.
The Arts, as one of those spheres of impact, is included in our vision to change 12 cities to places where God reigns! The Word on which we base our calling and the reason for our existence is found in Habakkuk 2:14:
“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
Through REVELATION ENTERPRISES (R.E.), Doxa Deo’s official Worship and Arts Movement, our dream is to see people from all walks of life respond to the REVELATION of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. The E represents all of the creative ENTERPRISES with which we engage, the three horizontal lines linking each endeavour with the empowering presence of the Trinity, taking us to Knowing God, Loving People and Impacting My World.
Revelation. Reaction. Revolution.
From REVELATION to REACTION to a REVOLUTION of worshippers who freely express their admiration for, dedication to, love of and intimate relationship with the King of Kings, bringing GLORY to GOD! Knowing that the Holy Spirit lives in us and longs to impact our world through us, our creativity becomes an expression of our Creator’s life within us, His way of changing the world around us day by day. What an honour! What a privilege!
As creative people, we have a mandate to encourage and develop every worshipper in the arena of Prophecy, Ministry, Worship, Celebration of Life and Evangelism. We encourage every member of the community to ‘stir up the gift’ that is within them, developing as effective communicators in music, singing, dancing, drama, writing, graphic design, painting, photography, and every avenue of communication or technical support of the Arts ministry.
We also aim to raise the level of corporate and individual commitment to the life of the church and community beyond the parameters and the activities of the Arts.
With this in mind we have established different divisions to see this happen.
