These are the things that we believe are most important. They are not the only things we think are important but we hope this will give you a flavour of the church.
Jesus at the centre
We seek to be followers of Jesus Christ and have Him at the centre of our lives, family and church family. We believe that Jesus Himself should be our vision and becoming more like Him should be the principle purpose of our lives.
The Word first
We believe the Bible (Old and New Testaments) is God’s Word and should have first place and final authority in all matters concerning faith and life. We believe it should be the source of all teaching about God and His ways and in particular His relationship with people and His creation.
Freedom of the Spirit
We seek to remain open to the leading, guiding and empowering of the Holy Spirit. We love and respect His Presence. We seek to provide an environment where He and His Gifts are welcomed and His Presence is tangible.
The Father’s Family
One of the principle revelations about God is that He is a good Father who loves us and wants us to be part of His Family. We try to reflect this as a church in that we put a high value on the importance of family, both nuclear and church. As a church we try to provide an environment where the whole family can grow in the things of God and we try to ensure that different age groups are catered for.
Praise, Worship and Prayer
Praise, worship and prayer should be the natural outflow of a life dedicated to God and to His purposes in the world. We encourage joyful praise and meaningful worship. We also encourage creativity in praise and worship through music, dance and movement.
Prayer is vital communion and communication with God
It is the privilege of every Christian. It is also our responsibility to pray for others and God’s purposes in this world. Therefore, prayer is encouraged both individually and corporately in the life of the church.
Evangelism and Discipleship
All Christians are called to be disciples and to disciple others. We encourage and seek to equip people to be involved in reaching out to others with the love of God through our everyday lives and also through organised outreach activities.
Healing and Wholeness
We believe that God has provided eternal salvation, healing and wholeness through the Cross of Christ. We provide opportunities for people to receive prayer and we regularly see healings and miracles as we pray for people with illness or pain. We also provide opportunities for healing of the inner person through prayer and applying principles of healing found in the Bible.
