Core Values

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday 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 totally loving and completely holy.

Methodology

  1. 1
    The glory of the Triune God

    Therefore: We love him wholeheartedly, worship him sincerely and seek passionately to complete the work he has given us to do.

    The authority of the bible

    Therefore:
    We adhere to our doctrinal statement as a summary of key truths from the Bible that we agree on as a family of churches.
    We affirm the ministries of preaching and teaching in order to understand, obey and apply the Bible to our faith and practice.

    Therefore:
    We allocate a disproportionately large amount of energy and resources to reaching lost people, discipling them to maturity in, and devotion to, Christ.

  6. 6
    Mission

    Therefore:
    We give priority to world evangelization.
    We give priority in our missionary activity to evangelizing those people who have had the least opportunity to hear the gospel, thus expediting the return of Christ.

    We create strategies, structures and policies that enhance local initiative and maximize cooperation in the accomplishment of our purpose.

    Social Responsibility

    Therefore:
    We uphold biblical justice.
    We minister to the poor and oppressed as ministry to Jesus himself.
