Our Vision and Values
We believe in Jesus.
First and foremost, we believe that our salvation comes from Jesus Christ, our Lord.
We believe in the Bible and it’s message of eternal hope. God saves us by grace through faith in Jesus – who died and was resurrected – making a way for us to be forgiven by God, filled with the Holy Spirit and find all we need in Him.
We believe in worshipping together, serving together and living a life of faith together.
As a church we are committed to Build People and Build Community. We do this by being Christ Centred and Bible Based.
We love to Worship God, but not just on a Sunday, worship is a lifestyle. We want to show genuine love and support and to serve people to see real and lasting change in our city.
Prayer is the foundation of all that we do.
Sometime prayer is silent and reflective, but it can also be full of joy and thanksgiving. We have seen some people healed and many prayers answered; we praise God for them all. We hold a weekly prayer meeting, but encourage our church to pray often with an open heart to hear what God has to say.
The Bible tells us to “worship in spirit and truth” so we strive to be authentic with our expressions of worship.
The purpose of worship is to maginify and exalt God to the highest place in our lives. We let go of our problems, fears and failures to surrender before God; to fully engage with and encounter the One who has saved and redeemed us.
We believe we are all called to a life of mission.
It’s not always backpacking through the African bush, but we feel everyone has a vital role in spreading this story of salvation. Each of us have gifts that can be used to serve the church, love our community, or go further afield.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired/infallible Word of God.
