We want to be a people who are encountering God through Jesus Christ in the fullness of the Spirit. We model ourselves on the Spirit-filled early church in the NT which was marked out by the following values:
Anointed worship (Acts 2:43, 47). We seek to be "filled with awe" as we encounter God so that we gladly yield our whole lives to Him, not just on a Sunday but throughout the week.
Theological depth (Acts 2:42). We seek to apply our minds to understanding God and His ways as He has revealed them to us in the Bible.
Fervent prayer (Acts 2:42). We recognise that we are utterly dependent on God for all things and so we are committed to humble and heart-felt prayer.
Intimate fellowship (Acts 2:44, 46). Although we are a very diverse group of people, we seek to be a united and deeply loving fellowship.
Effective evangelism (Acts 2:47). We are constantly reaching out to those who don't know Christ and seek to win lost souls for Him.
Compassionate social action (Acts 2:45; 6:1-7). We want to show the extravagant love of Christ in what we do as well as what we say.
Holy living (Acts 5:1-11). As those who serve a holy God, we seek to be pure in every aspect of our lives.
Spiritual gifting (Acts 2:43; 1 Corinthians 12-14). We believe all the gifts mentioned in the NT are to be sought and used today with discernment and out of love for others.
Sacrificial giving (Acts 2:45). As those who have received abundantly from God, we seek to give abundantly to Him.
