Why we do what we do?
We value authentic holistic worship
God is the creator of the universe. He is our Savior and Lord. Salvation, love, truth, wisdom, power and authority are from Him. He sits on the throne in heaven. He is holy and is worthy of our worship with our whole person: body, emotions, intellect, and the will (Rev. 4:11; Matt. 22:37). Our worship singspiration time is to be a time of praise, celebration and worship. It is to be lively and yet proper, free and yet orderly
We value prayer
God is the originator of everything (Rom. 11:36). He hears and answers prayers (1 John 5:14). We believe prayer helps us to be in touch with God’s plan. We also believe that it is only through God’s empowerment that we can accomplish the ministries He has entrusted to us. Therefore, our ministries should be characterized by a reliance on prayer in their conception, planning, and execution.
We value relevant Bible teaching
God created the world by His Word and hold the universe by the power of His Word. We believe that God’s Word is the authority and direction to know Him and His will. We believe that teaching of God’s Word is the catalyst to changing lives. We are committed to equipping believers to study the Bible themselves and through the preaching and teaching of God’s Word to follow Christ in every aspect of life
We value spiritual growth and life-change
As children of God we are to glorify Him with our life. Nothing brings honor and glory to Him more than spiritual growth (John 15:8; 2 Pet. 1: 4-9) and a life that becomes more Christ-like each day (Rom. 8:29). We believe that life-change happens best in small groups. We encourage everyone to join a small group or fellowship group for connecting with each other, discipleship, mutual support and accountability.
We value love, grace and unity in our relationship
God is love. He is gracious and forgiving. We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of church life (1John 4:7-12). We also believe that we should reflect God’s unconditional acceptance and forgiveness to us in our dealings with other people (Rom. 15:7). Since gossip and unforgiving spirit destroys relationship and unity (Prov.16: 28; 17:9; Eph. 4:2-3), if anyone has any issue with another person, he or she should bring the matter directly to the person concerned and not “share” with others not involved (Matt. 18:15). We believe being a community of love and unity is a good witness for Him. (John 13:35)
We value evangelism
God desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4). We believe that evangelism begins with our willingness to befriend and build relationships with lost people. We also believe that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to bring people to believe in Jesus (John 16:7-8). Our responsibility is to be faithful in keeping contact and building relationship with the lost and share with them the love of God through various means and ways (1Cor. 9:19-23).
We value empowering the believers to do ministry
All believers are God’s people in His kingdom. God desires His children to serve Him out of love and gratitude (Deut. 10:12). We believe that the primary responsibility of the pastor(s) and minister(s) is to equip God’s people for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:11). We also believe that the church should operate as a unified community of servants (John 13:14) using their spiritual gifts to serve the Lord and each other (1 Pet. 4:10).
