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 (Mark 3:34–35; Acts 2:44–45; James 2:15–17, 5:13–16).
Am I fully participating in this new community called the church?
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. (Matthew 28:18–20; John 20:21; Acts 1:8).
Am I engaging in God’s mission within my sphere of influence?
We believe that Scripture, understood through the person of Jesus, should be at the centre of who we are and what we are to do. By doing this we ensure that we remain kingdom focused (Luke 24:27; 2 Timothy 3:16–17).
Am I truly placing God’s word at the centre of my life and ministry daily?
Here we come to save the day! The hero’s life is about rescuing people from bad situations. We have been called to do the same. The people around us are in peril whether they know it or not and we are called to set them free.View Sermon
Being in exile can be an extremely distressing way to live and hard to keep going—swimming against the stream. In order to keep swimming it is essential to know the future and begin to have it infuse the present. In short, we need to swim in a new stream.View Sermon
It can be very tempting when we realize our place of powerlessness to become afraid. We know that fear causes us to react in a variety of ways such as flight/flight or freeze/appease. What should mark our exile is not fear but sonship which allows us a different reaction altogether.View Sermon
