The core purpose statements define who we are and what God has called us to give ourselves joyfully to.
1) God first & God reliant
We are worshipers; therefore, God being glorified is our priority in all things. We are reliant on the enabling power of the Holy Spirit because we are convinced that, apart from God, we can do nothing of eternal significance. We believe that personal encounters with God are crucial for life transformation and catalytic in people being activated in serving God.
2) On Mission
We exist not just to gather but to mobilise our people to go for God into every sphere of life on God’s mission. There is a call on our church to pioneer ground-breaking acts that will fulfil the great commission to go into all the world, make disciples of all nations & advance God’s kingdom rule and reign on the earth.
3) Unity & Reconciliation
In a broken and divided country, we reconcile people to Christ and then also to one another. We are a non-racial, multi-cultural and class-crossing community, meaningfully involved in each other’s lives for the sake of the purposes of Jesus Christ.
4) Space for Release
We value each person and therefore create space to identify and develop each person’s gifts, embracing every diversity God has given, thereby releasing all people to step into the fullness of their God-given destinies.
5) Shelter & Refuge
Like a sheltering tree planted by the streams of living water, we draw life from God in order to protect, nurture and sustain others. We defend the cause of the weak, the poor and the needy, and we stand firm against injustice.
