How beautiful, loving and good is our God and how very big! “For nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). We love to worship God for who He is, engaging with prayer and prioritising the presence of God. We live to bring the values of heaven on earth. We are a FAITH culture.
Who God is
Who we are
The bible says we’re children of God – incredibly loved daughters and sons of the King (1 John 3:1). We are changing the way we think to understand who we are and whose we are. We see the gospel of Jesus affect the whole of our lives – physical, emotional, spiritual. We value intimacy with God, who is completely powerful yet completely personal. We are an IDENTITY culture.
We’re learning what it means to wholeheartedly follow God with all of our lives. We express this simply as learning to listen to God and do what pleases Him. Our lives are informed and shaped by the Bible. We are a DISCIPLESHIP culture.
For us, it’s all about relationship, not religion. People before principles. We value being an extended-family on a journey with an open invitation for many to belong. Jesus said “this is my parting command: love one another deeply” (John 15:17). People are welcome without judgement, we believe “it is the kindness of God that leads us to repentance” (Romans 2:4). We are a GRACE culture.
What together we will do
We aim to model our lives on Jesus who walked in friendship with Father God, and lived a life of wonders and miracles. Being ‘naturally supernatural’ means seeing the power of God released through our everyday lives. We are a SUPERNATURAL culture.
We’re all about actively demonstrating the good news that God’s kingdom is freely, generously available and bringing the gospel of Jesus to the questions of ordinary people. We welcome the transforming power of God at work in individual’s lives. We want to love and listen to our local communities. With kindness we’re not afraid to critique or shape our city’s culture to make it better. We are a MISSIONAL culture.
The poor matter to God and so the poor matter to us. This means serving the last, the least and the lost of this city and beyond. We are a COMPASSIONATE culture.
We love to see people released into their God-given dreams, taking action that may shape a city. Everyone has creativity within them, as we partner with God new possibilities abound. We help people walk into the destiny Jesus has for them,“life in all its fullness”. We are a CREATIVE culture.
