Above all else we seek to obey the Great Commandment, to love God with "heart, soul, mind and strength" (Luke 10:27). We try to express this in everything we do, from personal and corporate worship to the way we relate to one another.
Luke 10:27 also tells us to "love our neighbour as ourself", which means we not only love our friends and those close to us, but we also extend that love to strangers, including people in our immediate community, our city, country and even the world. Everyone we meet during the daily course of our lives provides us with a chance to show God's love. We want to love the way Jesus loves!
Serving the World
We are on a mission, a journey to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost, lonely and hurting world. We do this through some very purposeful local and global programs efforts.
What We Believe
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior (John 1:14; John 3:16). Who was born both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life (Luke 1:26–38; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1). Who suffered and was crucified (Luke 23:1–46). Who died and was buried, and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day (Luke 23:44–24:8). Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1–9). And who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead. (Matthew 24:36–42; John 14:1–3; 1 Peter 4:5).
We believe in the Bible: God’s Holy Word. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture, and therefore the Bible is completely trustworthy in all its parts (2 Timothy 3:14–16; 2 Peter 1:20–21). We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12).
We believe that people created by God willfully sin against God and are consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23; Acts 4:12). We believe that salvation (the forgiveness of sins) cannot be earned, but is given to us only through the blood of Jesus Christ and by God’s grace (Ephesians 2:8–10).
We believe we must respond to God by: Admitting our need for God’s grace (Romans 3:23; Titus 3:3–7). Turning away from sin (repenting) (Acts 3:19). Trusting Jesus as Saviour and Lord (Romans 10:11–13). Being baptized (immersed) into Christ (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1–4).
