We are a community of fallen people who humbly sit under God’s word- the Bible- to learn of his plan for humanity. We try to live out our faith from a place of freedom, rather than religious duty, based on the values below.

In this way we hope to be a church who aren’t just ‘hearers of the word, but doers as well’ (James 1:22). You’ll see that each of our values emerges directly out of God’s story found in the Bible.

To find out more about our beliefs we’d love to invite you to our Membership Course, which allows you to ask questions and hear why we affirm the Creeds and Confessions of the ancient church


Jesus is the hero of our story and the highest authority over our church. Our gatherings focus on Jesus. He is the means by which all things are redeemed. Everything we do is ultimately about Him.

LUKE 24:27, HEBREWS 12:1-2, COLOSSIANS 1:18-20, COLOSSIANS 3:17 

 We watch for and ask the Holy Spirit to be involved in the mundane and the major aspects of everyday life. We don’t just promise to pray for others, we stop and pray. The Holy Spirit, through prayer, leads our plans, not the other way around.


God’s word is powerful, beautiful, and essential. The believer needs the word in their everyday discipleship. We call people to experience the joys of obeying God’s commands. We train our members in seeing the overarching narratives and themes of the Bible. We hear the word, pray the word, and sing the word.

ACTS 6:4, HEBREWS 4:12; 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

 A flourishing Christian has a vibrant relationship with God, self, believers, and outsiders. We keep short accounts and talk to people, not about them. We strive for peace and press in when things are hard.

ACTS 2:42-47, ROMANS 12:9-13, GALATIANS 6:2

We equip members of all ages to make disciples in the everyday stuff of life. The Church is not a provider of services but a training ground for servants. Every member is a minister, every staff person and elder is an equipper. We give what we have and work towards solutions. We participate in spiritual disciplines and take responsibility for our own discipleship.

ROMANS 12:6, COLOSSIANS 3:23-24, EPHESIANS 4:11-12

We ourselves have been adopted into God’s family, and now we all play a role in others experiencing God’s love and forgiveness. Theology is inherently evangelical, and evangelism is always theological. Personal relationships connect people to Jesus. Our everyday lives are our mission field.

1 PETER 3:15, LUKE 19:10, ROMANS 10:17, LUKE 15

There is one Church, under one Lord, called to one mission together. We value diverse and intergenerational discipleship. We embrace those with different gifts, colour, age, economic status, and experiences. We integrate, not assimilate. We strive for gift-based, shared leadership that is submitted to one another.

ROMANS 15:5-7, ROMANS 12:4-5, PHILIPPIANS 2:2, JOHN 17:20-21

We leverage our influence and resources to help those who lack the power or platform. We equip and train families in their pursuit of true religion, which includes serving the orphans, widows and others society often forgets about. We desire to use our lives as a reflection of God’s love through serving the poor, outsiders, slaves, and fatherless.

GALATIANS 3:28, JAMES 2:9, ACTS 10:34-35

We are committed to helping every man, woman, and child understand how their story has shaped them, and how God’s story is redeeming them. We walk in patient love with each other in and through brokenness. We proactively move towards relationships and environments of care.


We are all made in the image of a creative God. We explore fresh ways to talk about and respond to the unchanging Gospel. We try new things. Innovation is beneficial to our mission and our own discipleship. Art powerfully inspires our faith and articulates our struggles. Creativity is an important part of the church.

EXODUS 35:30-35, COLOSSIANS 3:16-18, PSALM 96:1-6
