Our Vision & Values

1 - Our Mission

"To know Jesus and to make Jesus known."

2 - Our Mandate

"To be a gathering, healing, training, sending church."

3 - Our Vision

“Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.” - Psalm 105:1

We have a dream

To accomplish our vision, we have a dream to establish a multicultural community of friends where people are loved, forgiven, and accepted; a safe place where people can be restored, trained, and take what they have learned and spread it to their neighbours and to the nations. In other words, to be a gathering, healing, training, sending church.

The Model

Our church is led by a team of Elders who oversee the different ministries in the life of the church. We grow and develop people in ministry so they can embrace their part in the mission God has given us (Matthew 28:16-20). We believe that there is an opportunity for everyone to be involved in what God has called us to do.

4 - Our Values

Our Values Are Our Treasure

Rather than rules, our values are essential building blocks that are born out of our convictions about how we should live according to God’s Word. We do our best to focus on and embody the following core values as a church.

The Bible

The Bible in its entirety is the inspired and authoritative Word of God and is the only acceptable standard for life, ministry, and conduct in the church (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

The Mobilization Of Every Believer

Forging strong relationships is important to us. Through our friendships, we function with the desire to empower and involve all believers so they can embrace their part in God’s mission for us. (1 Peter 2:9-10)


We aim to resource all aspects of ministry with our finance, gifting, and people. Our finances to resource ministry are obtained through tithes (10% of your income) and offerings.


Family is important in all that we do. We strive for the integration of all ages, races, and cultures, walking and working together in a multi-generational and multi-faceted expression of all that God has intended for us and called us to (Acts 2:42-47). We also understand biblical marriage as the union of one man and one woman as taught by Jesus (Matthew 19:4-6).

Praise And Worship

We believe that worship is a lifestyle and not just a Sunday activity. We seek to worship God in all that we do, keeping Christ central and expressing worship in creative and diverse ways.


We acknowledge the total need for God and His Spirit in every area of our lives, therefore prayer and spiritual warfare precedes all that we do.

The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

We desire the Gifts of the Spirit to be manifest in and through our lives on an individual and corporate basis as we function as the body under the headship of Christ (1 Corinthians 14:1).

Winning Souls For Discipleship

We aim to evangelize, care for, and grow individuals in Christ as we reach into our community and the nations with the gospel and dynamic of practical ministry; thereby fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). Evangelism is the responsibility of every Believer, and not just an occasion or event.
