Our Four Core Values
GOD IS GOOD
The goodness of our Heavenly Father is foundational to having a real and transforming relationship with Him. His goodness is revealed perfectly through the life and ministry of Jesus. (John 3:16-17; Hebrews 1:2-3; John 14:6-7; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 1:19; Colossians 2:9; John 1:1; John 1:18; John 8:1-11; John 8:19)
JESUS WON THE VICTORY
Through His death on the cross and resurrection from the grave, Jesus conquered sin, sickness and death! By His blood our sins are forgiven, by His stripes we are healed and by His life we receive abundant life. (John 16:33; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:9; Acts 20:28; Colossians 1:20; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 9:14; John 10:10; 1 Peter 2:24; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 53:5)
EVERYONE IS SIGNIFICANT
God created every person in His image, with a purpose and for a purpose. Each one of us has a unique destiny and calling in God and has a part to play in advancing His Kingdom on earth. What we believe about ourselves and about each other matters! (Psalm 139:13-16; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:4-10; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 10:29-31; Jeremiah 1:4-5; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 1:3-14)
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE
Our God is all-powerful and able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine. When Jesus’ earthly ministry came to an end, He said that it was better for us that He go, so that we could receive the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit of God, who raised Christ from the dead that lives in all believers and empowers us to do all that He has in mind for us to do. (Luke 1:37; Matthew 19:26; Matthew 17:20; Philippians 4:13; Mark 9:23; Ephesians 3:20; Romans 6:10-11; John 16:7; Acts 1:8)
GOD IN THREE PERSONS
We believe there is only one God, who reveals Himself in three persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
THE WORD OF GOD
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to all people. It is written by human authors, under the supernatural inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs, it can be trusted to reveal God to us and helps us in developing a relationship with Him.
We believe the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by reaching the world with His gospel of salvation and bringing heaven to earth by trusting His power and plans! We get to partner with Him through the Holy Spirit and because of the finished work of Jesus!
