OUR CORE VALUES

Authenticity

LOYALTY - GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE THAN THIS, THAT SOMEONE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS. JOHN 15:13

INTEGRITY - WE ARE SURE THAT WE HAVE A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND DESIRE TO LIVE HONORABLY IN EVERY WAY.  HEBREWS 13:18

ACCOUNTABILITY - BELONGING TO OUR COMMUNITY REQUIRES A COMMITMENT TO BEING INTENTIONALLY INVOLVED WITH OTHERS IN ACCOUNTABLE, ENCOURAGING RELATIONSHIPS. WE BELIEVE LIFE-CHANGE HAPPENS BEST IN THE CONTEXT OF RELATIONSHIPS. IN CLUSTERS OF CARING PEOPLE, PARTICIPANTS SHARE AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER TOWARD SPIRITUAL GROWTH. HERE PEOPLE CAN EXPERIENCE BOTH THE BENEFITS OF A LARGER CHURCH AND ENJOY THE KIND OF RELATIONSHIPS THAT ONLY DEVELOP IN SMALL, SAFE SETTINGS. (HEBREWS 10:24-25)


PASSION

GENEROSITY - GIVE, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU. A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER AND RUNNING OVER, WILL BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP. FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED TO YOU. LUKE 6:38

COURAGE - BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS. DO NOT BE TERRIFIED; DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.  JOSHUA 1:9

DIVERSITY - OUR DESIRE IS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BLESS US WITH A RICH DIVERSITY OF AGES, LIFE-STAGES, RELIGIOUS, RACIAL, EDUCATIONAL AND SOCIOECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS. WE DESIRE TO FOSTER AN ATMOSPHERE OF UNITY THAT COMMUNICATES WARMTH AND ACCEPTANCE OF ALL THAT CARE TO JOIN US IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. IT IS OUR HOPE THAT THE THINGS THAT ULTIMATELY DEFINE US ARE THOSE THAT SPEAK TO THE NEED TO THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE, NOT ONLY SPECIFIC ETHNIC OR DEMOGRAPHIC ONES. THEREFORE, WE STRESS BIBLICAL TRUTH ABOVE STYLES, TASTES, AND PREFERENCES.


LIFE-GIVING

EVANGELISM - EVANGELISM WE EXIST TO TELL OTHERS ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS (THE HOPE IN GOD AND GOODNESS OF GOD WE HAVE FOUND AND EXPERIENCE).

PLANTING - WE BELIEVE THAT PASSION FOR TELLING OTHERS ABOUT CHRIST SHOULD EXTEND INTO INVITING THEM TO LIFE GIVING COMMUNITY BY PLANTING CHURCHES PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO ENCOUNTER CHRIST AND EXPERIENCE NEW LIFE. 

OUTREACH - WE TRULY BELIEVE HOPE IS CONTAGIOUS. IT BEGINS WITH YOU AND EXTENDS BEYOND YOU. WE CARRY THE PRESENCE AND GOODNESS OF GOD EVERY WHERE YOU GO TO THE COFFEE SHOP DOWN THE STREET AND WITH US IN LONDON, JOHANNESBURG AND DUBAI.
