What We Believe

From the very beginning, humans have misused our freewill to separate ourselves from the Creator God who gave it to us. This disconnection has resulted in the brokenness and decay of all creation. Thankfully, we see in scripture a God who has desperately tried to reunite Himself with us and guide us in restoring His creation.

Ultimately, we believe that in Jesus, who is both fully God and fully human, God has demonstrated to us how to be truly human. Through Jesus' death and resurrection, we are able to be reunited with Him and His restoring purposes. Through joining ourselves to God’s restoring plans through Jesus, our lives are transformed, and consequently those around us, as we relate, love and transform by God’s power.

While the outworking of following God and His plans may differ between cultures and people, we believe that at it's very core are love and restoration through the power of God.

We value:

We delight in times of rest and refreshment in order to live life abundantly.

We are an Anglican church committed to Faith, Intercession, Renewal and Mission and are therefore linked to other like-minded Anglican Churches as an associate of AFFIRM.

(Based mainly on Psalm 23, Ezekiel 34 and John 10)
