BELIEFS AND VALUES
All people have been made as unceasing worshippers.
All of life is lived Coram deo (before the face of God).
People are embodied souls who always live out of their hearts (comprised of the mind, will and emotions). The heart is the causal core of personhood.
All of life is lived within a covenantal context.
Sin is the expression of the heart’s love for and worship of something else – something that by definition is far less glorious than God.
We are by nature first and foremost relational beings – God relational and other relational.
Since we are all God’s children we are to live out the reality of family in our relationships with one another.
The grace of God as seen in the gospel is the change agent in people’s lives.
We value a precise application of the grace of God upon human need.
We value authenticity in relationships.
We are all sent by God to take the gospel to our neighbours and to all the world.
We are deep and passionate about the gospel and truth as revealed in the scriptures.
We believe the gospel is good, world-changing news.
We value every member in the church and feel a responsibility to shepherd and lead them no matter their age.
We believe humans were originally made dependent upon God and each other and this dependence has only increased as a result of sin.
We believe everyone’s walk with God is a community project.
We believe it is vitally important for the church to gather together for corporate worship every week and to hear the preaching of God’s word.
We value discipleship as an expression of becoming fully human.
It is our core calling to partner with God in reorienting each other (when we have turned) and the unsaved to God.
We believe it is more blessed to give than receive. We believe God has gifted every child of his so that they can make regular contributions to his family.
