Our values are the fundamental building blocks, the things that we hold dear, that which we stand for and will not compromise on, our non-negotiables – that which defines us!
It is all about Jesus Christ.
Everything we are is because of Him. He gives us life. Through Him we live and have our being.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
Be exalted, Lord our God.
We worship God for who He is, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Prince of peace, the Lord our Saviour, the One who is and who was and who is to come.
“I will praise your name, Lord, for it is good.” Psalm 54:6 (NIV)
We are bought by the blood of Jesus Christ. We are no longer slaves but children of the Father and co-heirs with Jesus. As God’s children, we can have an intimate relationship with Him.
“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” Romans 8:16 (NIV)
God’s Word, the Bible, brings light into our lives so that we can live according to His truth.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
God our Father has adopted us into His family. Together His family, the church, grows in knowledge of God and in faith.
“Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honour the emperor.” 1 Peter 2: 17 (NIV)
We, as the church, want to be the reflection of Jesus Christ to the world. We will follow His great commission (Matthew 28:19) to go out and make disciples of all nations.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)
