Our Core Beliefs

Our Core Beliefs are about being:

  • Christ-centred - We believe in the good news that God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ who became a man, died on the cross and rose again so that through him our sins can be forgiven and that we can live eternally with God.
  • Biblical - We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative word of God containing the truths which underpin the way we aim to lead our lives.
  • Spirit led - We believe that we live in the age of the Spirit as the church of Jesus Christ, and that we must be open to, empowered and led by the Holy Spirit.

We try to live this out by:

  • Leadership that is visionary, courageous, humble, consistent, full of faith, and releases church members into their God-given vocation.
  • Personal discipleship that is based on living like Jesus, exemplifying love, prayerfulness, holiness, integrity, accountability, humility and generosity.
  • Inspiring worship that is passionate, intimate, culturally relevant and brings people into an encounter with God.
  • Bible-based teaching and training that is challenging, relevant, and equips for everyday life.

We seek to connect these to our aims by:

  • Being a local church that is welcoming, inclusive, accessible for all generations and builds family and community life.
  • Encouraging all members to discern their God given vocation and express God’s love through the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Mission that is outward looking, concerned with justice and care for the poor and shares the love of God with our community and the world.
