Our Values

Our Values

Explore the shared values we hold as a community. These beliefs are central to who we are and who we're becoming.

Intimacy with God
God desires to have an intimate relationship with all people. We want to see people cultivate an intimate relationship with God through reading scripture, worship, prayer, and other spiritual disciplines, both individually and in community.

Community
We believe the way of Jesus should not be lived alone, but in community with one another. We want to share life together – meeting with one another, caring for each other, and celebrating life together.

Outreach
We were created to live for something larger than ourselves, extending God’s love to others. We want to extend compassion and share with people in need, going out to those who are lost in a way that is relational, through words and deeds. We embrace the call to love our neighbours and to bring God’s kingdom to earth in local and global contexts of ministry.

Spiritual Growth
Growth is a journey and the result of following Jesus. We want to see men, women and children being formed into the image of Christ, growing in character and wholeness, using their gifts to serve one another in love. We are committed to making passionate, authentic followers of Jesus.

Biblical Teaching
We believe the Bible to be the voices of many who have come before us, inspired by God to continue to speak to us today. We want to communicate God’s authoritative message in a way that is relevant as we seek to apply biblical truths to all aspects of life.

Cultural Relevance
We believe that the church should be culturally relevant, while remaining biblically faithful. We want to be relevant to our culture in all that we do and maintain a structure that is simple, flexible and promotes creativity and authenticity.
