Our gatherings are focused around
We believe that an essential character of a biblical church is the careful and prayerful exposition of God’s Word from the pulpit, because through it, God’s voice is heard. God is most properly worshipped when his people love his Word and listen submissively to his Word. Therefore the reading and expounding of Scripture take central place at our Sunday gathering.
In our preaching, we always point listeners to Jesus and his gospel, for by it people are saved and their hearts changed.
We value the weekly gathering of God’s people on the Lord’s Day. It is an expression of our fellowship in Christ and our love for one another. It is about renewing our covenant with God by meeting with Him and relating with Him in ways that He has prescribed: hearing and heeding His Word, confessing our sins, calling on Him in dependent prayer and lifting our voices in praise and thanksgiving.
We also encourage one another as we minister to and are ministered by one another, not just during the service but also by the fellowship before and following the gathering.
We urge everyone to be in a smaller group that meets regularly (Life Groups). We believe that discipleship and evangelism are activities best carried out in community. This is where people get to know one another at a deeper level and relationships are fostered. Our aim is to exhort and admonish one another as we speak God’s Word into each other’s lives. The Life Group, therefore, is where general pastoral care takes place.
Every Member Ministry
We aspire for every member to know and use their gifts for the building up of the body of Christ. Our aim is not just individual growth but also corporate growth and maturity. Both men and women are encouraged to serve Christ in ministry and to grow to their full potential. Scripture is also clear that the distinctive leadership role within the church given to qualified men is grounded in the doctrines of creation, fall, and redemption.
We are committed to sharing the gospel, in our immediate context as well as the rest of the world. We are therefore constantly on a mission footing as a church. There is no greater task than the reaching, discipling and teaching of unbelievers for Christ, so that they along with all other believers might bring praise and glory to the One who saved us and died for us.
