As Christians, reconciled to God through Jesus Christ, we come together empowered by the Holy Spirit to:
>embrace and witness to the good news of God’s love to peoples of all backgrounds, cultures and faith experiences.
>nourish Christian fellowship through studying, worshiping, serving, trusting and loving God.
Commissioned by God, our purpose is to be active participants in discipleship providing ministries which:
>strengthen faith and encourage spiritual development—a living relationship with God
>guide and connect individuals to the relevance of God and biblical principles in all facets of life
>provide an inspired environment to foster the development of leadership skills, life skills and creative expression in order to
discover how the spirit of Christ may be expressed
>advocate for peace, justice and compassion for those separated from God and each other in order to fulfill God’s call:
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself”.
>develop relationships through putting the needs of others before our own and inviting others to walk beside us in sharing
the Christian faith journey
