Christ Centred

The Good News of Jesus is the foundation of who we are and how we live.

Spirit Led

  • Believing God is able to do more that we ask or imagine.
  • Prayer is our first priority in following God's lead in life, church ministry and relationships.
  • Encouraging people to explore, express and use their spiritual gifts to serve God and His church.
  • As we grow in our reliance in the Holy Spirit, we expect to see the fruit of the Spirit evident in our relationship with God and people.

Mission Shaped

Church life is shaped with a concern for and a priority for reaching people who don't yet know Jesus.
