We see our church being compassionate, caring, grace-filled and non-judgmental, placing value on every person. A Christian church where ‘community’ isn’t about a program, it’s our heart to care for anyone, anywhere, in any way that we are able. A church that builds bridges for God’s presence, power and purpose to touch our world.
We see our church being exciting, fun and passionate about loving God and receiving the Word. A Christian church where ministry and programs are relevant in helping people step into their future with faith. A church where serving God isn’t a duty but a delight.
We see our church as growing and fruitful, a church that embraces all generations, and has a place for everyone to belong. A Christian church where reaching the lost isn’t an option, but is as essential as the love of God that compels us. A church where we have stepped out of our comfort zone to reach the hurting and those who need to experience God’s love. We are a church where the great commission is our mission.
We see our church equipping people to step into serving God in whatever their calling, gifting and potential, through encouragement, teaching and spiritual development and growth. A Christian church where everyone is important to God and is vital to the purpose of His kingdom. A church where it’s not about what ‘I’ can do, but what “we” can, and must do, together.
We see our church demonstrating God’s love, power and grace in a manner that best displays His heart. A Christian church where excellence becomes a way of life as we seek to be all we can for God, where we are committed to give our all, not just what is convenient, to fulfil the purpose and potential of God for our world in our time.
God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. – C.S. Lewis
Sin - The Seperation
I believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is consistently, constantly loving and completely holy.
I believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only One who can reconcile us to God, having being both God and man. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’, we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
I believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives. This is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we reside.
I believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can be healthy and prosperous in our lives in order to help others more effectively.
I believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is coming
I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He has promised to take His Bride – the Church.
