Let’s Grow

Our Purpose

We exist to grow disciples of Jesus Christ committed to worshipping God in all aspects of life, especially by:

Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ [Word ministry].

Showing love to one another and in our communities [Deed ministry].

Our Values

We believe that our personal relationship with God the Father, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit, is at the heart of who we are, therefore we value:

The Bible: as the written word of God and our supreme authority and guide in following Jesus in the whole of life.

Prayer: as the prime expression of faith in Jesus and of our dependence on God’s grace and sovereign power and on the leading of the Spirit.

Relationship: as a community of wholehearted worshippers and disciples of Jesus Christ committed to loving God and loving others.

“So the church…had peace and was being built up. And walking in fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.”

Acts 9.31 (ESV)
