Our mission is to proclaim and demonstrate the reality of God’s Kingdom, to make disciples and lead them to become wholehearted servants of Jesus Christ.
We seek to live this out in three dimensions:
UP – KNOW GOD
Drawing close to God in worship and prayer; being dependent on God’s grace and the empowering of His Holy Spirit. This is expressed in a commitment to worship and corporate prayer.
IN – SHARE GOD
A community of God’s people who seek to share, celebrate and enjoy the fullness of life together; a community where each can find friendship & fellowship, pastoral care & support, nurture & discipling and opportunities to serve. Midweek Small Groups are the place where we seek to facilitate this.
OUT – SHOW GOD
Seeking to share the good news of God’s love in our everyday lives and in serving the local community. This is enabled both in programmed outreach and through midweek Small Groups.
All we do is rooted in seven foundational values
1 Value the Kingdom
Prioritise Jesus’ priority
Do what Jesus said to do
“Seek first the Kingdom of God” Matthew 6:33
2 Value prayer
A culture of prayer first
At all times
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests let your requests to God”
3 Value the Holy Spirit’s resources
Live in God’s enabling / empowering
“Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always” Psalm 105:4
4 Value people
People matter to God
Investing in people for the Kingdom
“… to love your neighbour as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices” Mark 12:3
5 Value God’s revelation
Seeing what the Father sees
He has given us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 1:3
6 Value God’s calling
He has shaped you to serve Him
Using the gifts you have received, faithfully administering the grace of God given to you.
1 Peter 4:10
7 Value each other’s gifts
We are all part of Christ’s body
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. For we are the Body of Christ 1Co 12:27
These values are foundational to all we do
These seven values are foundational for Kingdom living and have an immediate impact on our life and ministry. The expression of God’s Kingdom is validated as we live lives that are Christ-centred and God dependent.
Make this your daily pursuit.
“Don’t forget Him! Think of Him often.
Adore Him ceaselessly.
Live and die for Him.
That is the business of every Christian”.
