Vision and Values

OUR VISION

Growing Deeper in God  

Through Jesus Christ

By prayer, praise, worship, Bible study and fellowship with one another

Growing Larger in Mission

In the power of the Holy Spirit,

Through evangelism, social action, support of missionary activity and the use of our God given gifts and abilities.

Within this context we are a community of small groups committed to lives which are biblical, prayerful and worshipful and who together seek to offer a welcoming and inclusive family of God to all.  This is expressed in our six core values:

 

OUR VALUES

1.     Everyone giving glory to God through Jesus

All that we are and all that we achieve is by the grace of God; therefore we believe in acknowledging fully God’s power at work in our lives.

2.     Everyone loving one another

God loves us with an outrageously generous love, inviting us into his family as precious children; therefore, we will seek to be open, real and loving with one another creating a healing community, living in right relationship.  We seek to offer a safe place for all to feel accepted, finding support and care and together seeking wholeness in Christ Jesus.

3.     Everyone growing in discipleship

Jesus gave his all for us and he calls us to leave all and follow him; therefore, we will seek to daily commit all that we are and all that we have to God and his service.  We seek to learn more of God’s ways and discern his specific will for our lives through time spent with God in prayer, Bible study and fellowship and through mutual support and accountability.

4.     Everyone using our gifts for God

God invites us into his Kingdom and equips us all to be fully active in working his purposes out; therefore, we will seek to identify our gifts, through time with God and his family, releasing them to his service. We seek to help all to find their place and play their part in our community.

5.     Everyone sharing Jesus with others

God passionately and sacrificially seeks those not in relationship with him commissioning his church to carry out this mission; therefore, we will seek to be welcoming, inclusive and accessible to all. We are committed to seeking and serving those lost from God and sharing with them through words and actions the message of God’s redeeming love through Jesus.

6.     Everyone empowered by the Holy Spirit

God sends his Holy Spirit to empower his people; therefore, we will ask God through his Holy Spirit to meet with us, to empower and to sustain us.  We will be open and expectant for his supernatural work through us and in us and in our community.
