Core Values


COMMUNITY – Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:18, Acts 2:42-47

We value community because life-change happens best in community.  This includes the concepts of discipleship, vulnerability, accountability, and the process of being changed into the image of Christ.
 
RELEVANCY –  1 Corinthians 9:19-23
We value relevancy because we want to be current in our approach to ministry while remaining true to the Word of God.
 
UNITY – John 13:34-35; John 17:20-23, Ephesians 4:1-6 
We value unity because it is rooted in the person of Jesus Christ and fulfills his desire to draw people to himself.
 
INTENTIONALITY – Joshua 24:15
We value intentionality because being disciples of Christ requires us to be purposeful with our energy and time to fulfill the mission of the church i.e. Matthew 28:18-20.
 
STEWARDSHIP – Luke 12:42-46, 1 Peter 4:10, 1 Cor 6:19-20,
We value stewardship because every good thing comes from and belongs to God; therefore, we will practice biblical stewardship with our time, talents and treasures.
 
EXCELLENCE - Malachi 1:6-14 & Colossians 3:17
We value excellence, it honours God and He is worthy of the best we can offer.
