As a culture, we have become increasingly silent about Jesus-yet this generation needs Him now more than ever. Pulse is on mission to put Jesus at the pulse of a generation through large and small live events around the world.

GenZs now spend more time on internet-connected devices than any generation in history. Pulse is working to bring the message of Jesus to them by developing digital content and resources-tools that will help this generation grow in their relationship with Jesus and share Him with others.

Mission statement

We want to see the Gospel spread, God's Word engaged, and disciples multiplied through live events, digital ministry, training for young evangelists and leaders, and working in deep partnership across generations.

Statement of faith

1- We believe the Bible is the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ in His virgin birth, in His sinless Life, in His miracles, in His death and atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.

4- We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance of sin, and new life by the Holy Spirit is essential.

5- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

6- We believe in the forgiveness of sins, and the resurrection of every individual, either to eternal life with God in heaven or to eternal separation from Him in hell.

7- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
