We envision an inclusive, Christ-centred, multi-staffed church where:
1. Everyone is growing spiritually, no matter at what age or stage they started
2. Everyone has gifts and talents that are valued and used to change lives
3. Everyone is an essential part of a loving, supportive and diverse community
Every person as a beloved child of God (Inclusivity)
Modeling ourselves on the vision of Jesus, we believe that all are welcome into the kingdom of God. We believe we are called to offer our ministry to all people. Therefore we honour and welcome all persons, regardless of race, religious background, culture, gender, education, sexual orientation, differing abilities, or age. We commit to breaking open all circles of exclusion within our community.
Worship that provides an experience of God (Experiencing God in worship)
Since we believe that worship is a transformative event, we aim to provide music, prayer, preaching and community which facilitates an experience of God. We commit to seeking out and offering worship experiences which inspire its participants to develop a deeper relationship with God.
Living as people who follow and model their lives on Jesus Christ (Discipleship)
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we have answered the call to follow Jesus on the way and to live as though the kingdom of God is fully present in our lives. To do this we must discover who Jesus is. Therefore, we commit to providing opportunities for learning, worship, Christian community and other spiritual disciplines.
A community marked by warm, caring and loving relationships (Loving relationships)
We believe that Christian community is strengthened and deepened whenever its members exhibit practical care and concern for one another. Likewise, the community is built up whenever we spend time together. We commit to providing ongoing opportunities for our community to be together and to grow together.
Creating safe places to explore matters of faith (Safety)
We recognize and honour that being a disciple of Christ means, at times, taking risks and being personally vulnerable as we explore with others where God is leading us. Our aim is to make that process as safe and productive as possible by promoting an atmosphere of spiritual inquiry. We strive to ensure the physical, emotional and sexual safety of everyone.
