We value the Authority of Scripture … We believe the scriptures to be God- breathed and thus the ultimate authority for faith and practice. (James 1:22-25)
We value the New Birth… We proclaim the gospel of salvation by grace through faith in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Trusting Christ alone for the propitiation of our sins (Romans 3:24- 25, Ephesians 2:8-9).
- Responding in obedience by repentance, confession, and baptism;
- Receiving and being sealed by the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
We value the Fullness of the Holy Spirit … We value the ministries of the Holy Spirit which include: convicting sinners, pouring out love into the hearts of the redeemed, empowering believers to be effective witnesses, teaching and counseling His church, bearing fruit of the transformed Christ character, and gifting us for service with all the gifts operative in the New Testament Church, including the gift of tongues.
We value Worship … Worship is a way of life for us. Our worship is done in spirit and truth because we realize that God looks at the heart. We believe that the heart is where true worship begins. (Romans 12:1-2; John 4: 21; 1 Samuel 16:7).
We value the Leadership Gifts… We see the great need for all leadership offices, gifts revealed in Ephesians 4:11 to be functioning in the Body of Christ, ministering to and with local congregations. A group of churches walking together enables Ephesians 4:11 servant leaders to be released for ministry to the whole Body of Christ.
We value Integrity restored Relationships … We value relational love and unity. We seek to speak the truth in love, and walk in submission to the Word of God. We take Matthew 18:15 seriously and, seek to work through offences, ask for and give forgiveness and walk on together in respect, preferring one another in Christ. (Ephesians 4:15-16; Matthew 18:15-17)
We value Christian Marriage…. We teach and encourage all to walk in and enjoy the freedom of marital faithfulness. We offer liberating hope in the power of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 7:2; Romans 8:13; Ephesians 6:10)
