OUR VISION

We are growing a large church where soul winning is the primary focus. We are increasing in the power of God, seeing families empowered and the community transformed. As an Apostolic hub, we want to see cities impacted with Kingdom thinking and Holy Spirit encounters.

Our vision is to see every member:

Loving God. Every member is a disciple of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

Supporting people. Every member has a ministry (Ephesians 4:12).

Serving Each Other. Every member is an intercessor (1 Peter 2:5).

Changing The World. Every member is a missionary (Mark 16:15).

OUR CORE VALUES

Our core values are shaped by the Great Commission; to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and strength, and our neighbours as ourselves. As a church whanau this looks like:

  • Every member growing in their relationship with God and one another
  • Every member being a part of a small group
  • Every member ministering to others
  • Actively sharing our faith
  • Having a strong emphasis on The Word
  • Signs and wonders accompanying the preaching
  • Every person developing their character
  • Everyone having a born again experience
