VALUES & MISSION
Our ‘core values’ are based on God’s word. They are those practices which are ‘core’ to our church family, which we hold dear and which we regard as valuable. We will stand on these values, live by these values and, when necessary, fight for these values! We seek to live these values.
Our core values are:
Loving relationships (God first)
Our Vision – What we See
To be a growing, effective church in our area and beyond, as we make known to others near and far, the person of the Lord Jesus Christ – His love, His message and His mission.
Our Mission – What we Do
We don’t ‘do our own thing’ because we’re not ‘on our own mission’. We are on a “Co-mission” and in accordance with that which Jesus Himself “commissioned” us to do in Matthew 28:19-20 where Jesus said:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you… (Jesus)”
Our mission is His mission!
So we “go” (we don’t have a staying mentality). We go wherever and whenever He sends us. Into our community, workplaces, city and
We make disciples. Remember, we’re on a mission. It’s strategic, not incidental
“all nations” indicates a global and multi-cultural mandate/mission
We are to baptize/emerse them into the true person of God as taught in scripture – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
