- To be a carrier of the power of the Almighty God-Acts. 1:8.
- To be a global christian with worldwide impact-Acts. 1:8.
- To enjoy your christian life-Isa. 32:11-15.
- To operate in the supernatural-Acts 19:11.
- To become unstoppable, unexplainable, untameable and "unkillable"-Acts 4:1; Jn. 3:8.
