WHO WE ARE

We are a Christian community of believers who are:

  • Christ–centered:

  • We believe that Christ is the head of the Church. Therefore, we exalt the Lord Jesus Christ to the highest in our worship, teaching, preaching and ministry. He is the author of our salvation and the focus of our faith. Scripture says putting Him at the center of all we do pleases the Father.

  •  

  • Evangelical

  • We believe the Kingdom of God extends beyond our denomination, that we are only a part of the body of Christ, and that we have a legitimate place within, and responsibility to the rest of the Christian community.

  •  

  • Sabbath–observing:

  • We believe that being fully Christ-centred and worshipping on the Sabbath are not in conflict. God gave the Sabbath to man for rest, reflection and worship. It is even more relevant in today’s world that is filled with stressed and tired people than in previous generations.

  • We

  • Bible Based:

  • We believe that Bible-based teaching and preaching honor God and edify people, and that our ministry should reflect the highest commitment to integrity of interpretation of biblical truth and it’s application

  •  

  • Spirit filled:

  • We desire to be a Church with increasing passion to experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit expressed in the way we

  • live and do ministry individually and corporately.

  •  

  • Passionate in Worship:

  • We believe that worship is a primary means by which we express our love for the Lord and that it should be a priority for the Church. Spiritual Passion in worshipping the Lord agrees with the Scripture and demonstrates our deepening relationship with Him.
     

  • Compassionate in Service:

  • We believe that genuine love for the Lord will be transformed into ministry to others. Reaching out to the world through compassionate service honors the Lord and points people to Him.
     

  • Aggressive in Witness:

  • We believe that lost people matter to God, that the church has a mandate to evangelize, that each member has a role in that process, and that world conditions call us to be aggressive about winning the lost.
     

  • Strong in Fellowship:

  • We believe that a strong commitment to Christ calls us to a strong commitment to His church body. Building up the Body through fellowship, through understanding, developing and exercising our spiritual gifts are important.
     

  • Committed to Discipleship:

  • We believe that the goal of faith is to be conformed to the image of Christ. This happens best through the process of mentoring and discipleship. A healthy Church is the result of the healthy spiritual development of individual believers.

Biblical Integrity

We affirm that the bible is accurate, reliable, consistent and sufficient for all matters of faith and practice and is to be handled prudently and advisedly, consistent with proper biblical hermeneutics.

 

 

Doctrinal Clarity

We seek to accurately understand, believe, teach and practice the instructions found in the Word of God.

We seek special clarity regarding our distinctive doctrines by giving attention to our positions and statements, reasons, and motives.

 

Open Creed

We recognize that it is possible for our doctrines and positions to change as doctrinal clarity is established.

 

Biblical Balance

We accept the need for balance in our ministries, programs, and Theology.
 

 

Mutual Respect

We regard mutual respect as paramount among us.
 

 

 

Mutual Accountability

As believers sharing a common faith, we accept the responsibility of being mutually accountable to each other by developing effective mentoring relationships. To achieve this we resolve to be teachable, vulnerable, transparent, available, honest, and humble.

 

 

Maintain Unity

We recognize the role of unity to the effectiveness of the ministry of the church. To achieve this we will have a sustained and intimate relationship with the Lord, unite around the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ as the heart of the message of the church and seek to be constantly filled with the Spirit of God to produce the fruit of the Spirit which becomes evident in our relationships with each other.
