Our Purpose

We purpose to be an expression of the body of Christ (the Church), submitted to the Lord Jesus Christ in all things, patterned after the elements of the New Testament Church that are reproducible in our particular context and dedicated to fulfill this by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • TO WORSHIP, adore and glorify God in the liberty of the Holy Spirit through public and private worship and to minister the sacraments or ordinances of the Church.
  • TO PREACH AND TEACH the Bible as the Word of God.
  • TO DISCIPLE believers to be submitted to the Lordship of Christ through the local church.
  • TO REPRODUCE the life and character of the risen Christ in an expanding expression of our union with Christ.
  • TO TRAIN a body of praying believers who effectively call for the will of God through intercession.
  • TO DEVELOP spiritual leaders who can multiply themselves and meet the needs of others.
We are called to be an area-wide church body with an international outreach.  We are called to service to God and then to man as unto God.  The Holy Spirit has called us to be:
  • A house of prayer for all nations.
  • A house of praise and worship.
  • A house of obedience to the harvest.
  • A house of faithfulness in tithes and offerings.

Our Beliefs

God is the loving Creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is eternal and completely good, knowing all things, having all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity, in three persons, yet one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God passionately desires a relationship with us and towards this end, continually invites us into a relationship of faith, friendship, learning and service. Genesis 1:1; John 14:6-9, 15-17 and John 16:7-15; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 4:9-10.
God expressed himself in human form through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of us all, was buried, rose again from the dead and ascended to heaven. Colossians 1:13-23 and 2:8-14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Matthew 22:36-40 ; John 14:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-3; Acts 10:42-43; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
The Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character and love among Christians. The empowering and infilling of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, is available for every Christian. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service. Acts 1:8; 2:4; Romans 5:5 and Romans 8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 3:16, Ephesians 4:3-4, and Ephesians 5:18; John 14:26 and John 16:7-14.
We believe that God speaks to us in the Bible and that it is our privilege to seek to understand God’s message and apply it responsibly to our lives. The Bible is our standard in all we say and do. We believe that God’s unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in relevant and contemporary ways, free of religious jargon and understandable to the people of our community. Matthew 5:17-19; 2 Timothy 2:15 and 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:16-21 and 2 Peter 3:14-18; Psalms 19:7-11 and Psalms 119:9-16; Joshua 1:7-8; Acts 17:11.
All people are created with dignity and value in the image of God, to live in a vital relationship with God. However, through our sin (failing to live by God’s moral standards), we break our intended relationship with God and we experience the destructive consequences of that broken relationship, spiritually and socially, in this life and beyond. However, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue us from those consequences and to restore our broken relationships with God and others through Christ’s death on the cross, a perfect act of redemption for each of us. Salvation comes to people on the basis of God’s grace through their faith in Jesus alone. They receive the free gift of forgiveness and are spiritually reborn through repenting of their sin and believing in Jesus Christ. Good works and a holy life, although totally unable to save anyone, are the natural product of repentant, believing people. I Peter 2:24, 3:18; Romans 3:9-28, Romans 6:23 and Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16 and John 5:24; Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:3-8; James 2:14-26 We believe in partnering with Christians from a variety of backgrounds and traditions to impact the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.
