What We Believe

Our Values

 

We believe in…

 

  1. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  2. The love, grace and sovereignty of God.

  3. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

  4. The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.

  5. The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary, truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

  6. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

  7. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruit of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.

  8. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

  9. The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

  10. The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.

  11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

1. We value the authority of the Bible

 

We believe the Bible is the final authority in all matters of life and conduct. We seek to communicate its timeless message in a way that calls for transformation and not just information.

 

2. We value the centrality of worship

 

We believe that it is our common experience of grace that calls us together. Our Corporate Worship expresses our gratitude and desire to put Him first.

 

3. We value unchurched people

 

We believe that the church has a responsibility to prioritise unchurched people. We intentionally create a safe and inclusive environment where people can belong before they believe.

 

4. We value community

 

We believe the church is a family to which people belong and not a place to which people go. It is founded on love, acceptance and forgiveness and an appreciation of the immense value of every person. We enjoy informality and encourage openness and authenticity in relationships. We believe small groups are a vital part of church life, and desire to see everyone involved in some way.

 

5. We value team work

 

We believe God has created each person uniquely and everyone is gifted. We want every person to find his or her gift and discover a place to serve. We believe that teams are the best environment for gifts to be expressed.

 

6. We value excellence

 

Excellence is doing the best we can with the resources we have. We believe that excellence honours God and inspires people. We discourage perfectionism and encourage risk-taking.

 

7. We value our place in the worldwide family of the church

 

We believe that we are only one part of the local Body of Christ in our area of the city, in the whole city, in the country, and in the world. We seek as best we can to play our part in that Body and serve the wider Body of Christ.

 

8. We value prayer

 

In all things we want to be submitted to God and under His authority. We desire to hear from Him and to be obedient to Him. We see prayer as relationship and a sign of dependence. We desire that every part of our church’s life be undergirded with prayer.

 

9. We value children and young people

 

We do not see the children just as the church of tomorrow but as a vital part of the church of today. We want to give children and young people good role models, a healthy spiritual framework to their lives and a desire to share their faith with their generation.
