Our Vision & Values

Vision (or what we're aiming for...)

Pioneering, Relational, Equipping, Whole Life Communities

 RELATIONAL COMMUNITY

  • Reflecting the nature of God as Father, Son and Spirit
  • Making room for each person’s unique mix of gifting, talent and character
  • Valuing a person’s wholeness above function
  • Seeing community as vital for demonstrating God and enabling growth
  • Welcoming all people as gifts from God

EQUIPPING COMMUNITY

  • Desiring to enable and release all God’s people in their gifts
  • Understanding that as Christians we are called to be disciples
  • Rooting our learning in the Scriptures
  • Experiencing our learning by the Spirit
  • Becoming a community of learning through the whole of life 

PIONEERING COMMUNITY

  • Believing in the release of people’s passions as part of extending the Kingdom
  • Encouraging faith, risk and an adventurous spirit
  • Having a creative flexible approach to church planting
  • Affirming the pursuit of justice and change in society as expressions of a radical Gospel
  • Not settling for maintaining “what is” but pursuing God for “what will be” 

WHOLE LIFE COMMUNITY

  • Viewing the Church as affecting the whole of society
  • Valuing home, work and leisure as places that matter to God
  • Understanding our transformation as taking place in all of life, as well as in Church meetings
  • Reawakening the God-creation of the arts, the sciences, business, education, caring professions…
