Our Core Values

We believe…

…that the Word of God is the center of our preaching and teaching. The Bible is the standard by which we measure our worship and service to God. The Bible is the primary source regarding what God wants the church to be, become and do.

We believe…

…that the church must be actively engaged in the work of ministry and mission (local and abroad). The church must be culturally relevant and sensitive to the needs of those it ministers. The church operates beyond geographic, social, cultural and ethnic boundaries.

We believe…

…the church must have leaders who are Spirit-filled, committed, well trained, biblically qualified and led by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, leaders must be open to the authority of the Scriptures, Senior Pastor and other spiritual leaders ordained by God\’s Word.

We believe…

….that the central purpose of the church is to be on mission for Jesus Christ. Thus, as members of the body of Christ we are committed to spreading the Gospel to the ends of the Earth using all resources available to us.

We believe…

…that the local congregation is the visible manifestation of the ”body of Christ” in the world. All members, with various spiritual gifts are equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit, must be sent out to exercise their spiritual gift for the work of ministry.

We believe…

…that families, children and youth are important to the life of the church. Therefore, people and resources must be dedicated to helping them grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, empowering them to reach their full God-given potential in the Kingdom.
