Our Core Values

  • We believe the Bible, as contained in the Old and New Testament, is the word of God and is the perfect guidebook for living.
  • We believe there is one God, who manifests Himself in three persons -
  1.  God the Father who is relational, sufficient and creative
  2.  God the Son who is our Savior and Lord
  3.  God the Spirit who empowers and enables us to live a godly life
  • We believe in the three Wesleyan essentials: Repentance, Faith and Holiness, which are available through the biblical principles of Prevenient, Justifying and Sanctifying Grace.
  • We believe the unity of believers is essential for effective growth of the Kingdom.
  • We believe people matter; people are to be loved and all people need Jesus.
  • We believe all things are possible with God. (Matthew 19:26; Matthew 9:29)
  • We believe there is an afterlife, a Hell to shun and a Heaven to gain.
  • We believe Jesus is coming again.
