One Bible writer said, “Do not despise the days of small beginnings” and indeed everything that looks big has a beginning. When I joined M.P.C. in May 1989 we had less than one hundred people meeting at Mombasa Primary School and nobody could have thought that we will be where we are today.
The vision of acquiring the original building was born in the heart of a man I have come to love and honor and respect the Rev. Elmer Komant. He located this property and begun to dream of buying it, it looked and sounded like a mere day-dream at that time.
With the help of PAOC missions, through a loan, M.P.C. was able to purchase this building then called Eagle house. The Lord made it possible to complete paying the loan in January 1999.
In the beginning of 1995 Pastor Komant begun to talk about nationalizing the church and move on to a new assignment but I could not imagine myself in his big shoes. But he insisted that he had great confidence in the team he would leave behind.
With fear and trembling I accepted the challenge to take on the leadership of this church along with the elders and deacons. God has always reminded me that He does not call the qualified… He qualifies those He calls. The team of pastoral staff has since grown, with three other branch churches namely Mtwapa, Ogembo and Mwangaza Mission Stations.
.Through the spirit of teamwork according to our motto “Mobilizing the whole church to take the whole Gospel to the whole world”, we have seen our church grow to have our share in impacting the city of Mombasa and beyond.
The old sanctuary proved to be too small to cope with the tremendous growth we were experiencing. On the first of October 2000 we took a step of faith to build this new sanctuary with only less than 2.5 million shillings in the bank but God has proved to be faithful and has seen us this far. Someone once said, “God’s will is God’s bill”. Indeed God has been Jehovah Jireh. We can only say that this far God has been good to us.
