Beliefs

We believe in the Holy Trinity. God the Father, Jesus the Son of God and the Holy Spirit, that they are supernatural and present today. We believe that God is love and sent Jesus to die in our place giving us the only way to relationship with God. By putting our trust in Jesus and walking in faith, we are restored to relationship with God. The person of the Holy Spirit is a mighty counsellor, giving many gifts and empowering to life.

We believe in the Word of God, both Old and New Testaments. They are the inspired words of God, without error, totally reliable and flawless.

We believe that Jesus Christ himself has made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new person from the two groups. We believe in rightly esteeming God’s chosen nation, Israel, and acknowledging their place and anointing in the heart and purposes of God.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God and therefore have dignity, value and deserve honor.

We believe that God has a purpose for every human life. Due to original and continual rebellion against God, people are broken and disconnected in their relationship with Him and each other. They need to be reconciled with God, themselves and to others.

We believe in the Church. It is the body and bride of Christ. It is a family, connected by God, for worship of Him and to nurture make and send disciples to all nations of the world.

We believe in the Fruit of the Spirit as described in Gal 5, that this fruit describes the very characteristics of God. (ie the fruit of His Spirit) God and His Spirit are loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, good, gentle, faithful, kind and self controlled.
 

Values

Humility / Connection

Human beings are more valuable to God than tasks.  We are all to be esteemed, respected and valued. Nurturing to maturity the heart (emotions), mind (thinking), body (physical temple of God’s spirit), spirit (personal relationship with Jesus) and then the calling and giftings. Eph 4:23-32, Romans 12:10, Phil 2:5-8

Muliti-cultural

The anointing and differences of nationalities are important. Each nation expresses something of the character of God and our need for each other. God’s heart is for the nations of the world. Acts 10:34,35 Rev 5:9

Jesus Centred and Spirit led

The person and cross of Jesus is always the central focus. He is our magnificent obsession. We are led by the Holy Spirit who gifts and empowers us, all of this leads us to the Father.  John 14:6, 26 Romans 12:3-8, Acts 1:8

Prophetic / Holiness

Using all of the gifts given to us by God,  especially the gift of prophecy. Nurturing and developing intimacy with God through spending time with God, hearing the voice of God and obeying whatever He says whether or not we understand it. Cultivating purity and integrity with God and people. Hebrews 3:7-8, 1 Peter 1:15,16, Eph 4:11-13

Authentic

Honesty and honor in relationships with God and people. The priority is clear communication and connection. Vulnerability is not despised but developed lovingly to strength, through the spiritual renewal of the mind. Eph 4:23-27

Mulitipulcation

Discipled to be disciples of and in the nations of the world. Taught and passed on in a way that is reproducible. Matt 28:1920

Fun

When learn and live better, when we are in joy. God is joy and peace, not a cranky, unhappy tyrant in heaven. Gal 5:22, John 10:10

Radical, Innovative, Technological Approaches

New, relevant, strategic expressions of communicating Jesus and His call to holiness. Positioned for influence, aiming to be a blessing.

Biblical

Saturated in Scripture and living it out in life. Luke 8:21, Heb 4:12, 2 Tim 2:15

Rest

Intentionally resting, listening and worshipping God in a ‘thin place’ (dedicated space for the presence of God, Tabernacle). To be the people God wants us to be, living rest in our spirits not just more tired, overloaded servants. Heb 4:9, Matt 11:28
