our core values
We value an intimate, reconciled relationship with our Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, who loves us unconditionally and replaces our guilt and shame with joy and peace.
SOUND PREACHING AND TEACHING
We value the practical preaching and teaching of the Word of God as the guiding, transformational truth for our spiritual journey and the foundation for everything we do.
We value prayer and its foundation to all ministry and spiritual growth. We believe prayer expresses our dependence on God, our willingness to hear his voice and our need to know his will and life direction.
We value worship as a lifestyle where we experience God’s nearness, enjoy and enter into his presence and offer him not only our music but our lives.
We value surrendered obedience to our Lord and Saviour, giving up our independence, personal preferences and convenience for the advancement of his Kingdom through the empowering work of the Holy Spirit.
We value the discipleship and equipping of all believers to maximize their potential as God calls them by his Spirit. This means we recognize gift-based ministry and leadership styles that encourage, facilitate and empower both individuals and teams.
We value loving and enjoying people just as Jesus did. We value marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman. Life transformation takes place through authentic, accepting, forgiving relationships that are marked by truth, unity, and grace.
We value Spirit-led, forward-thinking vision based on a passion to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Such vision demands that we be ready to risk our comfort for the Kingdom of God as we step out in faith. It fuels a pioneering spirit that takes us beyond our comfort zones and results in transformed lives. We value the freedom to try new things without being bound by the fear of failure or our personal preferences or tradition.
We value people and long to see them discover and believe in Jesus Christ, God’s son. We believe people matter to God and therefore will invest our resources, time and talents at home and throughout the world because people matter to us.
We value the empowering work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who are followers of Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit is sent to convict, empower and bring courage to those who submit to his authority.
