Evangelism: The Gospel taken outside the four walls is the absolute
foundation of our church, in obedience to Mark 16:15 And He said to
them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature'…
We emphasize personal evangelism and a large variety of outreaches
to share the Gospel.
Conversion: We witness, testify and preach for a decision. The Gospel has
the power to save and transform lives. 1 Peter 1:23 having been
born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the
word of God which lives and abides forever… The bulk of our
congregation consists of people converted here by the Power of God.
The Local Church: God has placed everything necessary to accomplish
His will in the setting of the local church. Ephesians 1:22-23 …the
church. Which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in
every way. God’s will is accomplished in us and through us as connect
and commit ourselves to a local church.
Discipleship: God intends for calling to Him, and for Him, to be
accomplished through being trained and equipped within the setting
of a local church. Therefore, the highest calling of a Pastor and
a congregation is to obey God’s command in Matthew 28:19-20 Go
therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching
them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am
with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
Church Planting: The result of disciples being raised up is that they
be released into the harvest field. Matthew 9:37-38 Then He said to
His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into
His harvest." We send couples to plant brand new congregations,
with the aim of reproducing our vision in a new area.
World Evangelism: From the earliest Bible record, God’s vision is
worldwide testimony and impact. The gospel message and the vision
God has revealed to us is not simply American, but God-inspired; so
therefore it works, and is relevant in every nation and culture of the
world. Mark 16:15 all the world/every person…Matthew 28:19 all the
nations… Our job as believers, and as the local church is to pray,
train, invest, send and support workers to go into all the world.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
…that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives
…in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy….that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives
….that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life
….that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
…in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.
…that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.
…that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
…that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
…that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
…that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
