Genuine Bible-based Christianity is founded in relationship. Relationship with people and relationship with God. So much, in fact, that Jesus tells us the most important of all commandments is:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these." - Matthew 22:37-38
From this we draw our 3 core values:
ENCOUNTER with God . ENGAGEMENT with people . ENTHUSIASM in our service
ENCOUNTER WITH GOD
We value the presence of God. One ENCOUNTER with the living true God will change your life. God can change your circumstances, will change your paradigms and will change connections. That’s why we come to Church. Church is coming together to worship God in the way that He has asked us to with thanksgiving and expectation. Church is an opportunity to ENCOUNTER God in a tangible way.
"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" - Psalm 122:1
ENGAGEMENT WITH PEOPLE
We value RELATIONSHIPS with people and expressed by genuine heart-to-heart relationship with other people. God built the Church to love people. That is to say, the Church is not just a building or even just a place to come and meet with God. The Church is, at its roots, a group of people who love each other and love God.
"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." - John 13:35
ENTHUSIASM IN OUR SERVICE
We value our Church. We see every bit of help in our church as an expression of love towards our God. We do what we do because we love God and therefore we do it ENTHUSIASTICALLY and to the best of our ability, as a sacrifice to Him.
