We want to enjoy life together as a Christian family. We want to be one community in Jesus Christ, joined together as brothers and sisters. We seek to develop friendships built on covenant love, mutual responsibility and faithfulness. (John 17:20-23; Rom. 12:3-5; Heb. 3:12-14; Phil. 2:3-5; Eph. 4:11-16; Col. 3:12-15).
We want to hear the Word of God taught in a practical way. We want it to be given with full conviction, not watered down to make it more palatable. We aim to hear and obey – to be “doers of the Word” who are being transformed into the likeness of Jesus. (Rom. 15:4; II Tim. 3:16-17; Matt. 7:24-27; Rom. 8:29; James 1:22)
Worship and Prayer
We want to be a church community that experiences and worships God with our whole being. We want the Lord Jesus at the center of our worship. We hunger for the fullness of the Spirit, His glory resting upon us, as we worship in both an intimate and inspiring way. (Phil. 3:3; Heb. 13:15; Ps. 63:1-5; Rom 12:1; I Peter 2:4; Eph. 2:19-22; I Cor 14:26)
We recognize the Holy Spirit as the giver of life and His anointing power as the source of true creativity, authentic innovation, and inspiring purpose. We encourage the cultivation of a spirit of excellence, pursuit of vision, and the creative potential of every believer.
Intimacy of Community
We are a family for individuals and a community of families. We are committed to the genuine care and personal growth which flourishes in the intimacy of a small group. This value is reflected in our preference for small group ministry and cell-based structure. We are committed to the nurturing potential of small-group ministry for reaching the lost, cultivating relationships, expressing gifts, stimulating spiritual growth, developing leaders, and experiencing life-change.
