Biblical Integrity- We deeply value the truth of Scripture and how that truth is handled. So we make it our aim to understand and be clear about what the bible means through expository preaching and teaching. We aim to center our preaching and teaching on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Radical Discipleship – We take seriously the command to follow Jesus in discipleship. And we aim to make Christ’s values our own while calling others to follow and imitate Him. God has given leaders to the Church to equip it’s members for this work of being and making disciples.
Authentic Worship- Our worship of God is not merely external but internal from the heart. We not only aim to worship God accurately but affectionately. In our worship we respond to God’s beauty, truth & worth from the inside out. This involves thinking great thoughts about God, feeling affections for God & doing simple acts to obey God.
Loving Community – Our love for one another is the mark of following Jesus genuinely. We make it our aim to do life together, weeping with one another, rejoicing with one another, praying for one another, encouraging one another & living out all the “one anothers” of Scripture. One of the places this is walked out in our community groups that meet in homes on a regular basis.
Faithful Prayer- We are aware of our own limitations and God‘s willingness and ability to do the impossible. So we pray and continue to believe that God hears us and will answer our prayers in His timing. Prayer changes things. It is the means that God has ordained for His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. The early church was a prayerful community and as they prayed the Holy Spirit moved powerfully amongst them.
Missional Living – We are a people on mission with God. God has invited us to join Him in reaching all peoples with the gospel message. So we live with a sense of mission aiming to speak about the good news of Christ.
Unified Diversity – We embrace and honor diversity in our church. Heaven is and will be a place of diversity with people from every ethnic group. There are core truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ that unite us which we refuse to compromise. There are also secondary issues and preferences in which we give one another freedom to believe differently without judging or breaking fellowship.
Joyful Generosity – God has been abundantly generous towards us and the impact of His generosity leads us to be joyfully generous towards others.
