To inspire people to become lifelong followers of Jesus through building a community of love, acceptance, and forgiveness that brings the kingdom of God to our local community, our city, nation, and the nations of the world.
Transformed lives: Healthy Community
This next season is about being Presence seeking and living transformed lives in both Church and Trusts. We will be a family of people who encounter God, move in the gifts of God’s Spirit, experience miracles and healings regularly and share the goodness of God as well as the message of the love of Christ contagiously.
We will reach out to children and families of all ethnicities in our area every week.
Our youth and young adults will passionately love and follow God, becoming successful in life.
Our adults will become people who thrive in life, filled with hope and a kingdom mindset, due to the wisdom of God they are growing in.
Our seniors will flourish in their older age, continuing to influence others, often through the programmes of our Trust and small groups.
Our worship will develop a sound and a creative expression that encourages people into the presence of God.
Our Church will be contemporary in nature, yet absolutely committed to the gospel.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the creator of all things. He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the power and significance of the church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the 'breaking of bread'.We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives, which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the church and serve the community in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
