To win the lost at all cost, and make as many disciples for Christ as we possibly can in our generation.
Bringing people closer to God, by bringing God to them.
We must make every effort to reach the nations with the life-transforming Gospel of Jesus. We will therefore inspire missions commitment throughout this local body.
We must be committed to serving each other, and especially our visitors, new members, donors, and missionaries by being sensitive to their needs and demonstrating enthusiasm and optimism in our attitudes.
Committed to evangelizing and duplicating ourselves; encouraging others to follow us as we follow Christ.
Committed to planning, work quality, and effective time management.
- Team Work
Committed to collaboration and effective communication. Working as one team, within one organism, for one vision.
Striving to serve as examples to others in everything we do, demonstrating the heart of service.
We strive to demonstrate Christ-like character; avoiding hypocrisy in our dealings with each other and those we are called to witness.
We must create an environment where staff, ministry workers, and church members are sensitive to other cultures, where we celebrate our differences, and the dominant culture is a kingdom culture.
We affirm our belief in the one-eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of his will.
The Authority and Power of the Bible
We affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also affirm the power of God's word to accomplish his purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all men and women.
The Uniqueness and Universality of Christ
We affirm that there is only one Savior and only one gospel, although there is a wide diversity of evangelistic approaches. We recognize that everyone has some knowledge of God through his general revelation in nature. But we deny that this can save, for people suppress the truth by their unrighteousness. We also reject as derogatory to Christ and the gospel every kind of syncretism and dialogue which implies that Christ speaks equally through all religions and ideologies. Jesus Christ, being himself the only God-man, who gave himself as the only ransom for sinners, is the only mediator between God and people. There is no other name by which we must be saved. All men and women are perishing because of sin, but God loves everyone, not wishing that any should perish but that all should repent. Yet those who reject Christ repudiate the joy of salvation and condemn themselves to eternal separation from God. To proclaim Jesus as "the Saviour of the world" is not to affirm that all people are either automatically or ultimately saved, still less to affirm that all religions offer salvation in Christ. Rather it is to proclaim God's love for a world of sinners and to invite everyone to respond to him as Savior and Lord in the wholehearted personal commitment of repentance and faith.
