Our purpose is to live out the Great Commandment; Fulfill the Great Commission; and create Community in our local church and neighbourhoods.
1. GREAT COMMANDMENT
takes the entire Old Testament and sums it up in two commands; to love God with
all we are, and to show that love for God through loving our neighbours and
enemies. So as a church we spend time worshiping God together, praying,
listening and learning from His word together to praise and honour Him.
We also personally and corporately serve our neighbourhoods and city to show
the tangible love of Jesus through our lives.
2. GREAT COMMISSION
Jesus calls us to love God with all we are, we choose to live in obedience to
His word. Jesus commissions us to share the hope we have in Jesus with
everyone as we go about our daily lives, so in obedience we speak about and
live out the hope we have in Jesus. As part of truly loving our
neighbours we also want them to experience the joy, comfort and hope that comes
with faith in Jesus, so we daily live out His great commission for our lives.
3. GREAT COMMUNITY
practice the great commandment and live out the great commission in community,
as Jesus calls us into community when we come to faith. We are part of
His kingdom and part of His family, so we're in this together. So we love our
church community and disciple each other. We love our local communities
and love them in tangible ways as we disciple them about Jesus. Lastly we are
part of a global community so we practice loving our global neighbours through
sustainable initiatives, aid projects and relief efforts, while also sending
missionaries to share the hope of Jesus with them.
