His Kingdom Church has three core values that are an essential part of our DNA.
FAMILY . ENCOUNTER . EQUIP .
Where it all started
On Father’s Day 2023, Andrew and Laura Murray hosted the first Generation Builders Sunday gathering in the convention room at the David Lloyd Gym, Kingswood, Hull.
Over the following weeks a group began to gather that had a real desire and passion to see God do something new in Hull, and to see a new Spirit filled, Jesus focused community established.
In September 2023, His Kingdom Church was launched, part of the Assemblies of God fellowship of churches. Andrew and Laura Murray were appointed as the first lead pastors of this new work, alongside a wider leadership team.
We are believing for many lives to be transformed by the good news of Jesus in Hull and beyond in the years to come.
Quite simply our vision is the person of Jesus. He is the One who has changed our lives. He is the One we live to worship and adore. His Kingdom is our passion. His glory is our only goal. In our city, our nation and the nations we live so that Jesus would be exalted and known. We worship Him, want to know Him, want to obey Him and want to serve Him. We are Jesus people!
We seek to be a church family that truly loves Jesus and truly loves each other. Food and fun are important to us! We love to eat together, laugh together, cry together, pray together, and do mission together!
Our greatest desire is to encounter the presence of Jesus. We are unashamedly a Pentecostal church. We believe in miracles and we believe in being filled with the Holy Spirit. When we gather, we do so with an expectancy that we will meet with Him!
His Kingdom Church is serious about the Bible! We place a high value on the teaching of God’s Word and this is reflected in our Sunday gatherings, Bible schools, and training programmes. We want to equip people to live for Jesus and bring His Kingdom to their world.
