Core Values

INSPIRED WORSHIP glorifies God and builds His people up

"True worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks." John 4:23

BIBLICAL TEACHING is foundational for a personal living faith

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16,17

PASSIONATE PRAYER moulds our heart into the heart of God

"In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7

The HOLY SPIRIT is the presence and power of God through which the kingdom of God is built

"…the Spirit of truth…will guide you into all truth…He will bring glory to me [Jesus] by taking what is mine and making it known to you." John 16: 13-1

COMPASSIONATE MISSION is our response to God's love for us and purpose for His church in the world

"Go and make disciples of all nations." Matthew 28:19

“He has showed you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION into mature DISCIPLES is the aim of every follower of Christ

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

"Preparing God's people for works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."

Ephesians 4:12,13

Everyone has a vital part to play in SERVING Christ for His glory in UNITY

"The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though its parts are many, they form one body ... there should be no division in the Body ... it's parts should have equal concern for the other." 1 Corinthians 12:12,25

LOVING RELATIONSHIPS permeate every aspect of our Christian life and community

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:2,3
