What We Believe

Our Vision

To transform lives by encountering God and connecting people.

Our Mission Statement

To provide an environment where people:

  1. Encounter and are transformed by the presence of the living God.
  2. Are challenged and equipped by a biblically relevant message from His Word, the Bible.
  3. Experience biblical community and discipleship through connection groups, meaningful relationships and spiritual mentoring.
  4. Seek evangelistic opportunities to declare and model the life-changing message of the Gospel at home and to all the nations.

Our Core Values

Worship

We value authentic worship based on the worthiness of God. God is seeking worshippers who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We desire that worship becomes a lifestyle of the believer where worship is demonstrated through a variety of means such as generous giving, joyful celebration and creativity. As people are ushered into His presence through worship, God is enthroned-we, our region and world are radically transformed.

Prayer

We value prayer as the essential means God uses to forward His plans and establish His kingdom here on earth. Prayer is multi-faceted and multi-dimensional, ranging from private meditation, praise and intercession to corporate intercession which is often connected with fasting. Prayer is taught, modeled and commanded in the Word of God. It is the pathway to intimate encounter with God; it is the means by which we learn to hear the voice of God and receive His guidance.

Move of the Holy Spirit

We value the person of the Holy Spirit and His ministry because we encounter and are connected to God and one another through His outpouring. We become established and empowered when the Holy Spirit’s gifts and fruit are evident in our lives. The fullness of Jesus Christ in the earth is expressed by His body through our relationship with the Holy Spirit through the release of His power and gifts. We desire the move, gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit becuase His outpouring will revive and transform us as individuals, a church, and a region.

Biblical Community

We value a culture of biblical community where individuals are loved and accepted. This is practially demonstrated through believers meeting in small groups to support, encourage and love one another. God desires us, as individuals, to become a unified body that is continually growing in our devotion to God, one another and the gospel. Our desire is to live and love as Jesus did by genuinely encouraging and gracefully challenging one another. Biblical community provides a visible expression of the body of Christ in the earth.

Discipleship

We value God’s commands to be disciples and make disciples of the nations; therefore we will encourage the study of God’s word through teaching, small groups and mentoring others for the equipping of the body for the work of ministry. The outcome will be demonstrated through transformed lives where the believer matures from being discipled to being a discipler, and thereby fulfills their calling in Christ Jesus.

Commitment

We value commitment because God values it and it is part of His nature. God commands us, “Whatever you do, do it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”  Our example is Jesus, who came to serve and not to be served.  We believe commitment produces self-disciplined and motivated individuals who are engaged in our services and activities.  It also inspires excellence and fosters an environment of responsibility and accountability.
