Global Awakening is ‘n globale gemeenskap van christine met ‘n setel hier in Johannesburg. Hul onderskrif lui as volg:
“For all believers everywhere, we present an opportunity to receive power from God. We offer ourselves as evidence that God uses the unqualified when we’re willing to take a risk. We strengthen each other through community & theology, and we call out to all those who feel ill-equipped, isolated, and hungry, saying: you belong. To the sick, we offer a community of faith that will believe for your healing. To the sceptic, we offer our stories and our lives as fruit of Jesus’ work. Come receive from God what you need; come learn how to take risks in your faith; come join us as we each fulfil God’s dream for us. We are a global community of believers empowered to awaken the world.”
