We Are Worship Driven

We believe that authentic worship is everything that honours God. Worshiping God is the greatest fulfilment of our vocation to be bearers of God’s image. Worship is an individual and corporate whole life offering which is grounded in our regular gathering for that purpose. Worship is about God first and last.

We Are Spiritually Equipped

We believe that God has gifted his body of believers, men and women equally, for the work of discipling and mission. Every believer has been equipped by God’s Spirit to build up the body and/or to do works of service for the world. Everyone is encouraged to discover their gifts and share them to the best of their ability.

We Are Discipleship Focused

We believe that God is transforming us into the image of his Son. This means that we are intentionally submitting ourselves to be re-formed through daily practices that lead to spiritual growth. We also recognize that at the heart of our mission as a church, we are to disciple others through those same daily practices.

We Are Community Oriented

We believe the community called church is a new family. This means we intentionally invite people to become a part of our life together. As well, we foster an environment in which we openly share what is happening in our lives with each other and seek to respond to each other with love and concern. We also seek to be a place of healing for all people.

We Are Missionally Minded

We believe that mission is the reason for the church’s existence. Scripture describes God’s great mission to redeem and renew all of his creation, particularly humanity. God has called us to participate in that mission, in the power and under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
