We hold, at the centre of our church, God’s mission to reconcile man to Himself. With that that in mind, we have a number of key values.
Our 4 key values:
- The Word/Paipera – We believe that the bible is God’s inspired word and provides the foundations of all that we do.
- The Spirit/Wairua Tapu – We acknowledge that the Holy Spirit plays an important part in our lives, especially in drawing us closer to God.
- Community/Whanaungatanga – We believe that Community is at the heart of all that God has done and so must be at the heart of all that we do. To that end we intend to build a church whanau that enjoys fellowship and that encourages individuals to fulfill their potential in Christ, grow in their unique giftings and become missionaries in their places of influence.
- Grace/Keerehi – God’s love for us is unconditional, unchanging, and totally complete. It is gracious. As believers we are totally accepted by God, not because we are righteous, but because Jesus has presented us with His righteousness. There is nothing we can do to make God love us more and nothing we can do to make Him love us less. Our service to God overflows from our joy in His love and grace, not because ‘we have to’! We also recognise the grace God has shown, through the giving of his Son, to the world and all the individuals in it.
