Who we are
We are a group of people who love to serve Jesus and the people of our community. Just a regular group of kids, students, blue collar workers, migrant workers, white collar workers, retirees and everything in between. All are welcome!
Did you ever notice that Jesus lived and taught with tremendous simplicity? It would seem Jesus enjoyed conversations around an open fire while fresh fish and bread baked over the coals. He was practical, friendly, realistic and consistent in this one theme: that He lived His day to day, moment to moment life as a grace filled ambassador for the Kingdom of Heaven. That's exactly what we're striving to be about too.
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are true, accurate, and life-changing. As such we are committed to teaching and preaching the whole Bible. We believe that Christians will grow in their faith through intentional discipleship, prayer, and Bible study. We believe that the lives of authentic Christians will be clearly seen in their actions and words. (Gal. 5:16-25; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
We will not bend the truth or deviate from the teachings of the Bible in any way. We will seek to communicate the truth in language and form that is relevant to our culture. We value dynamic preaching that expresses the mysteries of the Bible. We value vibrant music that expresses worship to God. (Acts 17:22-34; Psa. 40:1-3)
We have no desire to become a social club of disconnected people who come together once a week. Instead we will seek meaningful relationships within the church through small groups and corporate gatherings. We will seek relationships outside of the church by caring for and loving people like God does. (Matt. 25:31-40; Acts 2:42-47)
Committed to Excellence
We will seek to honour God through our commitment to excellence in all we do. Prayer, public worship, art, drama, children’s ministry and community outreach will all be undertaken as an act of worship to the Lord. As such, we will invest sacrificially of our time, our talents and our treasures to bring God the glory He deserves. (Matt. 22:37; 1 Cor. 10:31; Col. 3:23-24)
We will use our times together to encourage and equip one another for life as Ambassadors of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the real world where we live and work. For when our eyes are focused on God we see His care and His leading into this vast globe of hungry, lost souls. We will intentionally and prayerfully take risks, make time and set aside resources for this kind of Kingdom investment and we will lend support to others that do the same. (Matt. 28:19-20; 2 Cor. 5:17-20; Col. 4:5-6; 2 Pet. 3:9)
