Our Vision and Values

Our Vision and Values

Looking Up — Our first focus is on God. We want the world to know the God we serve, and to see the difference he makes in our lives.We seek to glorify him in everything we do. We prioritize knowing him better through his word, through intentional encounters with him, and through his spirit, living and active in our lives. 

Reaching Out — We love our community, and believe God has called us to “grow where we’re planted”. We are committed to loving our town, and region, and want to be a safe space for all people. We believe the Gospel is the ultimate hope for all people, and want to boldly share it with all, but we also know that God has called us to love people unconditionally, and to demonstrate his love in practical and tangible ways. We seek to meet the needs of our community in ways that will leave a lasting legacy in this town, and delight in serving others.  We also seek out strategic partnerships with local, regional, provincial, national, and international individuals and groups that help us spread the good news of Jesus and impact lives for Christ.

All In — We are passionate about growth. We love nothing more than seeing people grow in their faith, and become closer to God. We are committed to seeing people walk in the freedom God has given them, using their gifts for his kingdom, gaining knowledge of Him, and deepening their relationship. We are focussed on equipping his church for faithful service,  building up the body, and discovering their identity in Jesus. We believe that we are called to be “sold out” for Jesus, and believe in gifts-based, whole body ministry, where people thrive in being who God has called them to be, and joyfully work together to fulfil the call of His church.
