We are followers of Jesus - We acknowledge Jesus as Lord of our life and together we ensure that we continue to grow in our spiritual lives. We acknowledge that lifelong faith is not solely taught in church programs, but rather is caught from a lifestyle of faith.
We are family - Christian community is an integral part of being a follower of Jesus. We celebrate diversity of ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds. We recognise that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ - We want to be that village and help people nurture faith in their whanau.
We are missional - We make a commitment to be a mission focused church. We see the measure of a missional church is the level at which each member engages in meaningful relationship with unchurched people. In order to influence our community, we need to understand it and be in it. We will go beyond giving aid, to giving ourselves. The phrase we want to hear is “you were there for me”.
We are a people of grace - We strive to have a reputation of generosity, not just with money but also with time and love. “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
