Mission Statement

Jesus In Everything!
My Life, My Family, My Church, My Community.
Colossians 3:17
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus”

Core Values

Our Core Values are broken down into three headings;
Knowing, Growing and Going

Core Values

Our Focus is God, and we want Jesus to be in everything that we do.
The Bible is our guide and has absolute and final authority.
We also want to have the freedom to be led and guided by the Holy Spirit.
Relationships are very important. We value everyone; and so we want to make sure that we include everyone. We want to be relevant in the world we live in.
We Function as a church under Team Leadership. (Ephesians 4:11)
It is important that being part of the church we recognize that we are called to serve and love one another.
We also want to influence the world we live in with the message of the Gospel, and introduce as many people as possible to Jesus.
