OUR VISION

We dream of a healthy, multiplying church that is empowered to love the world back to life.

raising sons & daughters

Every person is made alive in Christ & encounters their new identity as a son/daughter of God. (Ephesians 2:4-7)

restoring family

Every person finds belonging in the family of God & through this family lives to change the world. (Ephesians 2:19-22)

Releasing purpose

Every person is empowered to live out their God-given purpose to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. (Ephesians 3:7)

our culture

WE VALUE HIS PRESENCE ABOVE ALL

Our lives were created to be connected to God. We desire to live immersed in His Presence, developing a lifestyle of intimacy with God that shapes the world around us. We believe that our highest calling is to worship, & seek to pursue God with passionate praise, surrendered hearts, fervent prayer & a deep hunger to draw near to Him through His Word and by His Spirit.

WE ARE ROOTED IN THE GOODNESS OF GOD

How we see God is a big determining factor in how we interact with Him & humanity. We choose to embrace the Truth that He is a Good Father, who is working to restore us, heal us & replenish the earth with His great love. This foundational truth fuels our prayer life; propels our pursuit of signs, wonders & miracles; & gives us courage to face lies, trials & overcome because we know in the end His goodness trumps all.

WE WELCOME PEOPLE HOME

God is constantly inviting us to a place where we can just be ourselves, discover who we are & whose we are, and join the mission of God to see mankind restored. This is the place we call HOME, where you matter, you are known. As we reach out with a gift of hospitality, we seek to welcome people into an environment of safety where they can dream again.

WE LOVE FAMILY

We see in Scripture that God chooses to reveal Himself as Father, thus placing a high value on family & relationships. As His image bearers on earth, we aim to build deep, authentic, covenantal relationships that ensure everybody is loved, accepted, & empowered to live in their identity as children of God. We value team, mutual respect & submission, continuous encouragement, and shared vision & mission.

WE CHAMPION THE GOSPEL OF GOOD NEWS

We have received greatness because of Him who was great becoming nothing, & taking on Himself the weight of our sin & judgment, so that we could gain freedom. Sounds too good to be true, & that is exactly what it is! We make much of His grace, redemption & the gift of righteousness we have received. We desire to live out this message of hope, forgiveness & supernatural healing in a way that attracts people to faith in Christ. 

WE BUILD WITH EXCELLENCE

We want all we do to reveal the Creator who is excellent in every way. Pursing His best, with our best, for your best is our goal.

WE HONOUR

We choose to see people the way God sees them & treat them accordingly. This means that we focus more on people’s destiny than their history, their victories than their mistakes, & their beliefs instead of their behavior. As a prophetic people we prioritize recognizing the glory that rests on each other’s lives, seeking to call this out consistently, & create an environment that empowers everyone to live in this glory. 

WE PRACTICE GENEROSITY

God so loved the world that he gave! Simply, love compels us to give – generously, sacrificially & with compassion as our motivator. We want to be a people that live out the reality of God’s unlimited supply, who delight in receiving & giving in all areas, who offer our best at all times, & live lives that benefit others needs above our own. 

WE ARE LOUD IN OUR CELEBRATION

We love to declare aloud His Name, to give a voice to what He is doing, & to champion the work of Jesus in our worlds. We are a can-dojoyfulfaith-fuelled people who see what God is doing & choose to shout it from the rooftops. We love testimonies, celebrating the big & the small, expressing gratitude, & being the biggest cheerleaders of others.
