Who We Are
We believe in equipping and empowering you to be on mission for God
We have over 40 churches located across 11 countries around the world. We believe that significant ministry flows from significant relationships.
Whether you have been called to education, healthcare, business, arts, media, government, family or church, we want to equip you to extend the Kingdom of God in your world.
We believe there is one true living God, who eternally exists in three persons in unity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures.
We believe in the original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.
We believe in the virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, triumphant resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His second coming and eternal Kingdom reign.
We believe in the justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body. We believe in the sacraments of baptism by immersion and of the Lord’s Supper.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its mission in the world. We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.
We believe in Christ’s leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, for the unity, maturity and growth of the Church.
We believe in the privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice of tithing to the local church.
We believe that marriage is ordained by God in Scripture for the exclusive union between one man and one woman, for their mutual help and comfort.
We seek to honour God, God's Word and each other.
We excel by having a spirit of excellence. We excel in giving God the best of our time, talent and treasure.
Greatness comes from serving others and being more like Jesus. We advance the Kingdom of God when we use our gifts by serving God, our city and one another.
We are intentional about reaching out to those who are close to us, but far away from God.
We love doing life together. We're not just people who are in the same room together, but united together together. Sharing a common vision to love God and to love others.
