The Story of el shaddai
El Shaddai Christian Church is a community of people who value God’s presence deeply and pursue an increasingly intimate relationship with Jesus. We desire for you to feel part of this family and for you to know you have a part to play in our community. Our purpose is for you to be a disciple of Jesus who makes other disciples that make disciples.
El Shaddai Christian Church is part of an international family of churches known as Church of the Nations, or COTN. It is not a denomination, but an apostolic network of churches held together by simple family values and relationships. The aim is simple – to build a family of churches to reach the nations. Together, we are “a family of apostolic clusters advancing the Kingdom of God.”
