We are Mercy Nairobi
We are a community of disciples of Jesus who desire to see a gospel awakening in Nairobi that is carried to the ends of the earth. We are Christ-Centered, Bible-Believing and Holy-Spirit led. We aspire to be a living, vibrant and exciting body of believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, confident and courageous in making disciples for the Glory of God and the good of all People. Following the Holy Spirit's leading, we aim to be a church as defined by the New Testament, a church that proclaims the Gospel and lives out the implications of the Gospel.
To see a Gospel Awakening in Nairobi that is carried to the ends of the Earth.
We Exist to Make Disciples for the glory of God and the Good of all People.
We point to the surpassing worth of following Jesus
Because Jesus being fully man and fully God, lived a sinless life, suffered the curse of the cross, and paid once for sin to bring whoever believes in him into a relationship with God, we make much of Him by treasuring, embracing, exalting, and proclaiming only Him. We do not point to ourselves, we point to Jesus so that people will follow him, treasure him and point others to him.

We grow together as a family of God
Because Jesus has made us family under his headship, we are committed to lovingly holding each other accountable, yielding to the leading of the holy spirit, and deepening our knowledge of scriptures together towards maturity in Christ. We aspire to love each other deeply, sacrificially, and authentically. We Intentionally disciple each other, point out grace in each other, and learn from each other.

We welcome our neighbors
Because Jesus pursued and welcomed us to his Kingdom in open arms and prepared a table for us to sit with him as sons and daughters of God, we aspire to be welcoming. We go out of our way to care, listen, reach out, make room, invite and be hospitable for the sake of the gospel.

We go to all people with the gospel.
Because Jesus came for us and commissioned us to go, we purposefully and strategically proclaim the gospel. We engage in regular rhythms of evangelism, train, fund, and champion church planting and missionary efforts. We share our treasures and time, and we are committed to advocating for the less fortunate, disadvantaged, marginalized, forgotten, underserved, and oppressed.
