You may be wondering, “why does Manup have its own Creed”? It’s simple really, we have been
called and compelled to live accountably before God and one another. During our journey through
Ezra & Nehemiah, we were challenged to Arise & Build in our personal lives, families and spheres
of influence. This message impacted each of the group leaders in a different way, and we sensed
the Lord wanted us to memorialize what He was revealing to us. Through the collective effort of the
Manup group leaders, our Creed was forged. You’ll notice it’s not a set of laws or rules to live by, but
Holy Spirit governed desires and initiatives that have been burned in through conviction in knowing
the Scriptures, and most importantly, the heart of God for the men of the Church. Any man who is
willing can join in with us, but be forewarned, God will hold us to this. He is worthy!

brothers in arms

Men of God we’re standing strong  
In His might   In His Word
We’re marching on in victory  Brothers to the end      
As watchman on the wall    Proclaim to one and all
Our Captain that we’re following  Leads in victory

Our task is not for faint of heart  
On our knees  Battle starts
Praying for the ones we know  Spirit lead us on      
Sharpen up your swords   The battle cry of war
Brothers standing to the end  Battle has begun

Chorus
As He leads He leads us in The Call
All for One we’re standing one for all
We will hold Your words within our hearts always

The road ahead is long and far  
Valleys deep  Mountains tall
Gird yourselves for battle men  Can you hear the call      
Uphold us as we stand      We'll see the Promised Land
Marching on in victory   Spirit lead us on

On that day He calls us home  
Stronger man did we become
Trials and our sufferings  Made us more like Him        
We’re soldiers of the King    Our lives an offering
What we do will echo through all eternity
