Who we are
We are a Christian church, orthodox in our beliefs. We adhere to the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed.
What is the Gospel
Jesus is Lord and through his life, death and resurrection he is reconciling people to God and to each other, putting humanity back together so we can be his image bearers once more and participate in the renewal of all things.
Surender Jesus says, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must take up his cross and follow me” (Matt 16:24). Jesus is the first fully human being because he fulfills God’s purpose for humanity to perfectly bear God’s image. As we personally surrender our lives – our ambitions, plans and possessions – in order to follow him, God promises to make us look more like Jesus and in doing so recover our humanity.
Community Jesus says, “by your love for one another the world will know you are my disciples” (John 13:34-35). In a world divided by politics, economics, race, class and gender, Jesus is reconciling us to each other, healing our broken and fractured humanity. For this reason Christ calls us to belong to each other in the community of the church so that our lives together will better reflect God’s image.
Mission “One day the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14). Looking forward to God’s future reality we are on mission together to multiply God’s goodness, love and justice throughout the city and the world by making disciples and planting churches.
