Our Vision and Values


VISION STATEMENT

 

“Transforming communities for Christ

 

                … knowing Him and making Him known”     

 
 

CORE VALUES

 

We believe that ...

 

INSPIRED WORSHIP glorifies God and builds His people up

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

BIBLICAL TEACHING is foundational for a whole life faith

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

PASSIONATE PRAYER reaches God's heart and enlarges our own

 
"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 

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

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

MATURE DISCIPLESHIP should be the goal of every follower of Christ


"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 
 

AFFIRMATION OF DIVERSITY should be celebrated as an expression of our unity in Christ

  
"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 should permeate every aspect of church life

 
"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
