Vision & Values
…IS TO LIVE FOR GOD’S GLORY AND TO ENJOY HIM FOREVER!
Our very purpose…the reason we are a church…is not to do typically ‘churchy’ or religious things…but, in everything, to glorify God from the smallest act of obedience, to the most extravagant expression of worship or service. We believe real joy is found in knowing, loving and showing God to our world!
What we see in our future has already started happening in ‘seed’ form. This is only the beginning and we see God accomplishing extraordinary things through ordinary people like us, as we stay true to who He is and what He says through His Word and by His Spirit!
In 2015, we launched our 7 Gateways teaching, where each and every believer can be equipped to fulfill their call to carry God’s presence into everyday life in the sectors of society where they live, work and play! Our dream is to see people, who love Jesus, bring Kingdom values into focus in Business, Education, Entertainment & Sport, Family & Healthcare, Media, Politics and Spirituality!
Our Big 5 Vision:
WE SEE DISCIPLES WHO MAKE DISCIPLES
WE SEE LEADERS WHO RAISE LEADERS
WE SEE A CHURCH OF MULTIPLE THOUSANDS IN MULTIPLE NATIONS
WE SEE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE AS FOUNDATIONAL TO ALL WE DO
WE SEE THE 7 GATEWAYS OF SOCIETY BEING INFUSED WITH KINGDOM VALUES
