Becoming a partner

Partnership is open to any church in the Midlands which subscribes to MGP’s Doctrinal basis and shares MGP’s convictions about the shape of gospel ministry:

The means of gospel ministry is prayerful teaching of the Bible.

God’s voice is heard as the Bible is taught, in the power of the Spirit.

The heart of gospel ministry is the proclamation of Christ crucified.

The message of the cross is God’s way of saving people from his coming wrath.

The focus for gospel ministry is the local church.

It is primarily through the local church that unbelievers are brought to faith in Christ and believers are built up in him.

For more information about the MGP, download the leaflet.

To apply, please fill in the MGP Partnership Application form
