Our Core Values
All decisions and actions are guided by the following values: Lordship, Evangelism, Discipleship, Leadership, Family, Worship and Community Development.
Because Jesus is the “King of kings and the Lord of lords”, we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and His Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him.”
Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we are passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that engages people outside of the Christian faith. We seek to build churches primarily through evangelism-not transfer, through birth-not adoption.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
Because we are called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples-not conducting meetings, facilitating programs, or building buildings.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Because we are called to establish churches in every nation, we are committed to a culture of empowering leadership. We are intentionally multi-generational, and we deliberately create opportunities and platforms for next generation leaders to develop their leadership. We believe that you are never more like Jesus than when you are serving others. Jesus demonstrated it by His life, death, and resurrection. He came not to be served, but to serve others.
2 Timothy 2:2
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
Because the family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we embrace community, reject the idea of disposable relationships, and choose to walk in love, respect, and unity.
“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain … Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him”.
Heartfelt, sincere worship of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is what defines us as a church. Our lifestyles, relationships, meetings and programs are all birthed out of hearts of worship to God.
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
We are called to impact our communities with the good news of the Kingdom of God, carry God’s heart to the poorest of the poor and see our cities transformed by the power of God’s Word. We seek to build socially responsible churches that bless and serve our city. We value and celebrate generosity. We want to give of ourselves, our gifts, our time and our resources.
You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community liveable again.
