“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to:
Preach good news to the poor,
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim freedom for the captives,
And release for the prisoners,
To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. Isaiah 61:1
We want to help people encounter the mercy, love, and amazing grace of God through the power of the precious Holy Spirit. We want to see the fulfillment of this prophecy in the lives of people in our church, community, nation and the nations of the world. People encountering the reality of God, lives transformed by His amazing Grace.
We believe in being ‘Born Again’ and so we seek to help people experience this life changing encounter with Jesus Christ. Also, there are lots of people in society who have for various reasons stopped attending church. They’ve withdrawn from fellowship. Many of them have sustained some wound or hurt. As we seek to engage broadly with society we seek to draw these ‘refugees from church’ back into the fellowship of the saints. We are purposefully multi-cultural in our approach to church. We believe that our broad diversity is our strength…though it demands great grace and capacity from us all to experience and enjoy the unity of the Spirit.
Matthew 10:7 “As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”
