• To share the good news of God's love -and to see people come to know His love for themselves. ]esus came declaring good news to the poor, the hurting, the oppressed. The good news was that Jesus brought freedom, healing, release and God's favour. Jesus also came teaching "repent and believe the good news". In other words, turn away from sin (the things we do that are wrong and result in hurting ourselves and others) and believe the good news, (that in Him, we find the way into God's love, through God's forgiveness and the filling of our lives with His Holy/clean Spirit).

  • To worship the living God as He desires- with the whole of our lives and, when we come together, with adoration, praise and thanksgiving. We want to see the presence of God come amongst us - "What else will distinguish us from all the other people on the face of the earth".

  • To live godly lives - at home, in the workplace, in our recreation, in the church, that we might become a visual aid to help others to see the reality of Jesus in our lives. "He has given us everything we need for life and godliness".

  • To serve - one another and the community To see God's love at work in practical ways in serving others through the gifts God has given to each of us. "Keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord".

  • To go - as far and wide as Jesus wants us to go to share the good news at home and abroad. "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation".

  • The undeserved grace of God - "those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life".

  • People
    - to see men taking up responsibility and providing strong caring love for those in their trust.
    - to see women restored to the fullness of their strength and dignity
    - to see children being honoured and protected recognising it is "as children that we enter the kingdom of God".

  • Love - we are called to love God and one another, not to use or exploit one another. Without love we have nothing.

  • Honesty - we want honest open relationships with each other. We want to be transparent with each other. No hiding in pride, but facing the truth about ourselves. "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

  • Humility - beginning with the leadership we learn "to honour one another above ourselves". We do not control or manipulate or lord it over people. We are not bosses; we are servants.

  • Faith - "We live by faith not by sight". "Without faith it is impossible to please God".

  • Obedience - we have to learn the ways of ]esus and put it into practice. "Do not merely listen to the word - do what it says".

  • The Church - We recognise that we are just a part of God's world wide Church and are privileged to be a part of it. We value Fellowship with Christians in other streams of the Church.
