It’s our aim to be a church that:
Maintains an emphasis on biblical teaching in each area of its program and ministry,
understanding that the Word of God is the fundamental and authoritative foundation for
all Christian living.
Demonstrates to all people, in a winsome way. the love of Christ in word and deed; and therefore is a loving, friendly, kind, non-judgmental, giving church; committed to reach out to people and meet human need.
Sees itself as family, enjoying true fellowship; able to share joys, hurts and burdens; while responding in a loving, encouraging and supporting way.
Is a Christ-centred community; a worshipping, prayerful, Spirit-led, living, vibrant, enthusiastic company of disciples; seeking to be all Christ would have us be.
Is united in purpose; committed to be doers of the Word together; as active participants
In confidently and boldly proclaiming the Gospel by every means to all people.
Knows one another’s needs and provides diverse and ongoing training for ministry for all
ages, levels and areas of life and ministry.
Is engaged in, and encourages serious and regular prayer as a means of growing in
grace and invoking the activity of God in our midst.
Emphasises both public, corporate worship and private, personal worship.
There is a real desire to be the kind of church where people can be loved and accepted as they seek to follow Christ. We desire to be a church, where the grace of God can be manifested in the lives of our people. Many churches, in an effort to be true to God’s Word, become judgmental and legalistic. We believe such churches are not being true to the Word by doing so, but are in fact discouraging people from developing a living relationship with Christ. It is possible to stand without apology for truth and holy living without becoming legalistic. There are times when church discipline must be taken for the sake of the church. But these times are rare. On the whole, we choose to trust in the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives into the image of Jesus Christ and to love one another along the way.
