We are committed to the faithful preaching and teaching of Scripture as our first and final authority.
Thrilled and Motivated by Grace
We are saved by grace, sustained by grace and will be glorified because of grace.
This truth gives us great cause for rejoicing and impacts our relationships with one another and the world.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit
We are a church where God's presence is prized. We believe in the vitality of every member of the body being filled with the Holy Spirit, and the importance of using their God-given gifts to build the church and to impact their communities.
There for One Another's Success
We desire friendship, locally and internationally, in our worldwide mission.
We take responsibility for doing all that we can to ensure and enjoy each other's success, through practical relationships.
Intentional about Diversity
We work hard to break down every division and bring together those who are separated by age, ethnicity, language, culture, economic status, class, education and gender. In this way we display God's new humanity in Christ.
Embracing the Poor
We seek to continue the apostolic directive to remember the poor so that we all participate as co-equal gospel-partners in reaching our city and beyond.
Devoted to Mission
We are passionate about fulfilling our call to see the Kingdom of God extended locally and internationally, and are committed to taking the gospel to the ends of the earth, motivated by a desire for Jesus to have worshippers from every people-group and for God to receive the glory.
We are all called to be servants who die to ourselves for the benefit of others.
It's our longing to see this fully modelled in every aspect of life.
Humbly led by Gifted Leadership Teams
We recognise that God appoints elders and other leaders who serve the local church.
They gladly partner with apostolic teams to help to bring the church to maturity and play her part in her worldwide mission.
Celebrating the Centrality of the Local Church
We have a high view of church because it is central to God's eternal purpose.
This is expressed in each member's devotion to prayer, worship, and service in their local church.
Shaped by the Prophetic
We have been shaped by this gift and believe that prophetic input is crucial in providing ongoing direction and
encouragment to us as a church, and for our part within the wider movement.
What we believe
We believe in The Bible
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
(2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in The Trinity
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He exists in three Persons; God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy. (Genesis 1:1,26; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,2; 4:24; Acts 5:3,4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus is fully God and fully man. He came to earth, was conceived in the virgin Mary and lived a sinless life. He died on the cross in our place, and rose again in bodily form, to reconcile all people to God and to free them from the power of sin and the devil. He will return someday and consummate the building of His Kingdom. All who are His bride shall reign with Him forever. All who reject Him shall suffer eternal destruction. (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13)
We believe in the Fall of Humanity
We believe in the dignity of all people made male and female in God’s image.
We believe that because of Adam and Eve’s sin, all people are born in this world as sinners and have been separated from God and His purpose for their lives. We believe that people are made children of God when they repent of their sin, believe in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection, and commit their life to Him as Lord. (Genesis 1:26,27; 3:1,24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; I John 1:8)
We believe in the Holy Spirit
We believe that believers are to seek being baptised, or filled, with the Holy Spirit, either at or soon after conversion. This should not be a once off experience but an ongoing filling by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the one who draws believers closer to God, transforms them into the image of Jesus Christ, empowers them for ministry, and distributes spiritual gifts to the believers for the building of the Church. (John 16:5-15; Romans 8:16,23,26,27; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31)
We believe in Baptism and Communion
We believe that Baptism in Water for believers and Communion are two ordinances that have been given to the church and should be followed by all believers. (Baptism: Acts 2:38-41; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 8:26-40; 10:47; 18:8; Romans 6:3-4) (Communion: Acts 2:42-46; 1Corinthians 11:23-29)
We believe in the Universal Church
We believe in the Church, the body of Christ both local and universal and therefore the priesthood of all believers. We believe that though it has multitudes of diverse local expressions, there is only one Universal Church of Jesus Christ. The Church consists of all who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. (Romans 12:4-6; 1Corinthians 12:4-6; Ephesians 2:19-22; 4:12-16; Hebrews 10:24-25)
We believe in Grace
We believe that we are saved by grace alone, through faith in Jesus Christ. This grace is a gift of God and cannot be obtained by any work of our own. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:1,2; Hebrews 2:9; 4:16)
