Mission & Vision
Our Mission (What we are doing)
“Our Mission is to help people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.”
We want to encourage, assist, challenge and equip everybody and anybody to come to know, or recommit their lives to Christ – and then to grow up to be followers who are not perfect, but 100% devoted to following Christ.
Our Vision (What we are becoming)
“Our Vision is to be a body of biblically balanced believers reaching our full potential in Him.”
We cannot fulfil Christ’s mission alone as individuals. We are a church because God wants us to be together to represent Him with our unified gifts and diversity. Our goal together is to further His kingdom in our midst, but we also, in obedience to His Great Commission, actively seek to extend His kingdom. Just to be a biblical community is not enough, we are a biblical community so that we can reflect Him in the world.
Christ – Centred
Jesus Christ and the Good News of His death and resurrection are the centre of our faith and our church.
1 Corinthians 2:2
Our church is biblically balanced in teaching because one truth presented as the whole truth is deception.
God is the boss in our church.
The expression of an intimate relationship with God in our lives and in the life of our church.
In our church everybody is accepted as a person loved by God whatever the race, social or spiritual background or spiritual maturity.
Our church actively takes the Good News to people.
The way our church communicates the Good News of Jesus Christ is adapted to the needs of the people.
1 Corinthians 9:19-22
Our church wants to see people living in the freedom of the Spirit of the Lord in every aspect of their daily lives.
2 Corinthians 3:16-17
Our church wants every person to reach his or her full potential in Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 6:1, 10:24
God and the people our church serves deserve the best we can do with what we have.
The sole basis of our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, and without error. Where questions of faith are concerned, the Bible will always be regarded as giving the final answer.
As the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each possessing all the attributes of God.
Grace & Humanity
God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they turned against God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God’s saving grace – not human effort – and must be received personally by repentance and faith.
Salvation by Faith in Jesus
Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplishes salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between us and God. He will return to earth to complete His fulfillment of the scriptures. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and the judgment. Those forgiven through Christ will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service to the church.
The Role of the Church
The church’s role is to glorify and worship God and serve those in need.
