Agora Singapore

Agora Singapore commited to:

Cultural Mandate
"Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it..." (Genesis 1:26-28)

Greatest Commandments:
"'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:29-31)

"The Agora seeks to inspire laypeople in the marketplace to live out and proclaim the lordship of Christ over every domain of their life."

1) Thinking After God's Thoughts (Christ-likeness)
– to think through the issues of life, faith and culture with a mind submitted to the Word of God. To integrate our minds, emotions, wills and strength in holistic worship of God and discerning His purpose for our times.

2) Learning Community (Fellowship)
– to learn and live in context of community, fellowship and accountability with other believers to benefit from each other in teaching, correction, and training in righteousness, that we may be equipped for every good work.

3) Mission in The Marketplace (Cultural mandate and the Great Commission)
– To be accurately informed, winsome and wise ambassadors for Christ within our various callings and places in the marketplace as 'little platoons' of mercy and truth.
