Delight in God's love and to share it with others

We value:
The Bible: hearing of God's love in Jesus
The Bible is the story of how we have rejected God, our Father and how he has come looking for us, supremely in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. We are committed to teaching and studying the Bible so we know of God’s love for us more and more deeply.
Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Psalm 119:97
Prayer and Worship: Responding to God's love in Jesus
God is constantly calling us to celebrate his love for us as we praise and pray together. We are committed to prayer and praise in all our church groups and gatherings so that we encourage each other to respond to God’s love.
Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures for ever. Psalm 106: 1
Mission: Sharing God's love in Jesus
When we have experienced God’s love we want to share that love with others. We are committed to sharing God’s love for us in Jesus to others around us and to his needy world.
For Christ’s love compels us…… We implore you, on Christ’s behalf: be reconciled with God. 1 Corinthians 5:14 & 20
Community: Experiencing God's love in Jesus
When God calls us to himself, he calls us into a family of believers. We are committed to a distinctive and sacrificial way of life as we seek to love and care for each other.
Love patient, love is kind... 1 Corinthians 13:4
 

Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the Lord God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be build for the name of the Lord. 1 Chronicles 22:19.
