Faith and serving. We are a growing group of people of different ages and backgrounds who are passionate about our relationship with God through his Son, Jesus Christ. This same passion provides our motivation to serve our community unconditionally, as Jesus himself demonstrated by His example. Also, we believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and that if the principles within it are applied in our lives, we can have a huge positive impact on our own lives and the local community, not by imposing our lifestyle on others, but by providing resources and help where it is needed. The apostle James wrote (Chapter 2 verse 26) “…, so faith without deeds is dead.” (NIV)
Unconditionally inclusive. With regard to the Christian faith, we believe that no visitors or friends should be put under ANY pressure to conform -
There is only one church. We believe that there is only one church -
Room for the individual to grow. We believe that it is important to provide an environment where church members can grow and develop in their faith. This may sometimes involve taking risks with people, but we see it as essential that everyone is encouraged to grow and develop and that can only happen by sometimes taking a risk. Teaching is something that we consider essential, growing in knowledge and experience so that faith itself can grow. To this end there are regular bible study groups and home groups available to all.
Aims and objectives. Our desire is to provide ACCess for members of our community to whatever resources and help they need to help them achieve their full God-
