Our Vision

Love God

Love People

As a church, our vision serves to remind us that everything we do should be about loving God and loving people.

Jesus says that the greatest commandment is to
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength
The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself'.

Our Values

Our values set out what we as a church believe and what is important to us; they have shaped what our church looks like today.

Jesus at the Centre

A people who know and love Jesus. We recognise that He is the Cornerstone of our faith and the Rock on which the Church is built. We believe He was crucified for our sins and rose from the dead to give us new life. As a people we acknowledge that He is Saviour, Lord and God and that His name is the only name by which men can be saved.

A People of the Spirit

A people who believe in the power, presence and person of the Holy Spirit. We believe He is the third person of the Trinity who works with the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ, to bring all things under the Lordship of Christ. We believe in the gifts that He gives to grow and mature the Church and we believe that He bears fruit in people’s lives which causes them to become more Christ-like.

People of the Book

We believe that all scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. We believe that we should conduct our lives by scriptural principles and that we hear Jesus through scripture by the Holy Spirit. We look to be a people who know the Bible well and who make frequent use of this very precious gift from God.

People are Important

We understand that Jesus came to serve people and that in serving them, He sacrificed Himself. We recognise that we are to have the same attitude as Jesus. We want to be a people who serve the needs of others, showing them the importance Jesus placed on people.

A Kingdom People

We want to be a people who extend Jesus’ rule and reign and follow His practices and principles. We want to bring the Kingdom into being by following Him. By doing so we believe His Kingdom affects the hearts and minds of individuals and every other area of life.

A Missional People

A people who understand that the gospel message is for the whole world and that the great commission is for the whole Church. Together in a variety of creative ways we aim to proclaim Christ in every aspect of our culture.

An Ephesians 4 People

A people who receive gladly from Jesus the gifts of the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. We see the purpose of these gifts as equipping God’s people for the mission He has called them to and the strengthening of the Church.
