Our Values

discover church community

Authentic Community

Authentically following Jesus includes being an active member of His family. A healthy church family is a place where you are welcomed, valued and accepted; where you are encouraged and lovingly challenged; where lost, the broken and the lonely find faith and family; where you have 
opportunity to be real, vulnerable, and understood.

John 13:34-35
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

thriving families

Thriving Families

We feel particularly called to build strong God-honouring families in our community. This will require equipping men to be better husbands and fathers, women to be better wives and mothers, and children to respect and honour their parents and siblings. Included in this is the emphasis on strong age-appropriate ministries. People of all ages and stages will be
able to contribute to building this value.

Ephesians 5:21-26
…submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

prayerful dependence

Prayerful Dependence

We recognize that apart from God we can do nothing. In light of this knowledge, we will commit ourselves to seeking God’s perspective in all our decision-making. We will abandon our comfort zone in order to obey God more devotedly and further His mission.

1 Thessalonians 5:17
pray without ceasing

serving others

Serving Others

We commit to be a church where people are encouraged into loving
service for others. The Kingdom of God is not about just sitting back and receiving all the time, but it means getting involved. It means seeing a need and filling it, just like Jesus.

Mark 10:45
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

community sustainability

Community Sustainability

We commit to being a church that communicates the good news about
Jesus Christ in deed. With the resources God has given us, we commit to
being people who see and meet needs in our church family, local
community, and in specific circumstances around the world.

Matthew 25:31-46
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, . . .

relevant truth

Relevant Truth

We believe that the Spirit of God uses the Word of God to transform lives. We articulate relevant messages that are contextually applicable and a culturally appropriate explanation of God’s desire for our lives.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God[a] may be complete, equipped for every good work.

shared ministry

Shared Ministry

We believe that ALL of God’s people are uniquely gifted to take a part in ministry, so we will equip and empower every member to fulfil their God given purpose.

Romans 12:4-5
For as in one body we have many members,[a] and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

generous giving

Generous Living

We are generous with our resources; we seek to be a blessing to others at every opportunity.  

Genesis 12:3
 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Our Vision is to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ who brings hope and healing to this world.
