Purpose:

So our purpose is:

To walk in the love of the Father and give it away so all people may cherish his grace and extend his glory.

Vision:

As this purpose is lived out in the power of the Holy Spirit, we envision followers of Jesus will be:

  • walking intimately with the Lord, hearing his voice, and walking in his ways, thus living lives of worship
  • practising community, learning to live a new life through community, and replicating this transformed newness in all areas of life
  • living out of their identity as sons and daughters of the King, reproducing spiritual children out of their “being” in Christ
  • intentionally seeking to live out the great commission and multiplying new Kingdom families/communities

Values:

Understanding the principle of building from relationship to structure, rather than structure to relationship, we embrace the following values:

Christ-centred lives, expressing the Lordship of Christ

Apostolic alignment

Accountability (being under authority releases authority)

The principle of spiritual fathers/mothers and sons/daughters

Expressing the Father heart of God

A sense of belonging and family

Authentic Relationships (openness, honesty and integrity)

A Spirit-filled church where the ministry of the Holy Spirit is a priority

Team ministry

Unity in the Body of Christ

Living Bible-based Christianity

The priesthood of all believers and, every believer a minister

The unique value and divine destiny of each individual

Living a supernatural life, naturally

Excellence of ministry

Sacrificial servanthood

Passion for God, his church and his Kingdom

Kingdom values, vision and lifestyle

A world vision and a compassionate burden for the lost

Righteousness and justice are the foundations of the Kingdom

Living life in the grace and mercy of God

A Kingdom influence and impact on the moral fabric of society

Hebrew rather than a Greek mentality

The principle of reasoning from the whole to the part

God confirms his word through signs and wonders

Doing coming out of being
