Our core values
We believe Christ is central to who we are and what we do. This applies to each believer and the church as a whole. All that we are and all that we do is for His glory. We are committed to helping our members develop an intimate and meaningful relationship with Christ through prayer; a relationship that leads to hope, purpose and fulfilment. We emphasise the importance of submission to His Lordship under which members discover the awesome impact of letting God and His will be our first priority. As we live out our Christian life as God intends, we become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
[Colossians 1:17, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 4:13, Philippians 3:10, Matthew 6:33]
holy spirit empowered
We believe in the importance of being Spirit-filled and Spirit-led. We emphasise reliance on the Holy Spirit in every facet of our personal and church life. It is through the God’s Spirit that life transformation occurs and every spiritual gift mentioned in God’s Word can be and should be manifested today. Thus, we encourage every member to experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit and be empowered to expand His kingdom. It is also the Holy Spirit that reveals Christ to us and leads us.
[Zechariah 4:6, Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:16-18, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12]
We believe our faith and practice as Christians is founded and built upon biblical principles. We emphasize expository preaching and balanced comprehensive teaching so that our members may understand, live out and mature in the Christian life as God intended. Anointed expository preaching allows God’s Word to be expounded in a balanced and complete manner within its proper context to bring about life transformation. We are committed to developing a wide range of relevant teaching programs to meet the needs of the members in the areas of Bible knowledge, Christian living and ministry.
[2 Timothy 3:16-17, Nehemiah 8:8, 2 Timothy 2:15, James 1:22]
We believe that God is a covenantal God. He seeks people who are committed to Him and His purpose, and with one another. We believe an appropriate response to God’s covenant involves loving, honouring and worshipping Him above all else. This flows from our belief that God is the Supreme Creator and has planned all things in His good will. God is love and He desires to form an eternal family among whom He will dwell. We seek to develop covenantal relationships among believers through committing to love and build up one another. We are committed to forgive one another, resolve differences and reconcile relationships resulting in a deeper bond in unity.
[Genesis 1:1, Daniel 10:21, Ephesians 1:3-10, Hebrews 1:1-4, Revelation 5:1-5, 10:1-7, Exodus 20:3, Psalm 96:9, 1 John 4:13-21, Revelation 21:1-7, Matthew 6:9-13]
enriching community life
We believe the church is a life-enriching community. We are committed to building an authentic and biblical community that unconditionally loves and effectively enfolds people of all cultures and backgrounds. We seek to create an encouraging community that supports each other towards their fullest potential. We seek to create a caring community where help, concern, sharing and fellowship are naturally expressed out of a sincere love and commitment towards one another. We seek to create a place of healing for the wounded and rest for the weary. Our cell church provides small groups that are an ideal environment to foster such a sense of community as our ministries seek to meet different needs. We seek to be relevant to the diverse people groups in our city, serving their needs holistically and effectively touching their lives for Christ.
[Galatians 6:2, 10, Acts 2:42-46]
We believe in the importance of a God given, biblical vision that requires nothing less than our obedience to fulfilling the entirety of God’s vision for the church. We are passionate with the vision to fulfill the Great Commission by raising Christ-centered disciples to plant vibrant biblical churches within every area of all nations in the world. The vision also includes impacting our society in every sphere of human endeavor for Christ. We believe that such a vision is inspiring, exciting, challenging and God-honouring. Every member is encouraged to develop a personal God-sized vision.
[Proverbs 29:18, Habakkuk 2:2, Matthew 28:19-20, Isaiah 2:2]
We believe the core command of the Great Commission is to make Disciples of Christ. We aim to raise disciples who are passionate for God, people and the Great Commission. We aim to raise disciples who continually grow in Christ-like attitudes, values and Kingdom-focused lifestyle. We aim to nurture disciples who follow the example of Christ in humility, are submissive in attitude and sacrificial in service. We aim to make disciples who choose to submit their lives and desires to God, as shown by our respect and submission to God’s Word, our leaders and one another. Zealous people, who live holy lives, are full of faith, and desire excellence in their lives and ministry. Disciples who will in turn make more disciples. We encourage every member to be this kind of disciple.
[Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 8:29, 1 Corinthians 11:1, Hebrews 13:17]
We believe that every Christ follower has leadership potential. We are committed to helping every member discover and realise this potential for God’s glory. To this end, we place a high priority in inspiring, equipping and empowering every member to effectively undertake the work of the ministry as well as grow in leadership. We also seek to develop whole generations of dedicated, sacrificial and godly leaders for world-changing ministry.
[Matthew 9:37-38, Ephesians 4:11-13, Hebrews 13:20-21, Matthew 11:12]
We are committed to help every person experience the privilege of a life-changing personal relationship under the Lordship of Jesus. As part of this, we are committed to empowering members to share their faith and impact their communities. We believe that every believer has a part to play in world-missions. We also believe the church is God’s key vehicle to expand His kingdom. Therefore, our world-missions strategy is to plant vibrant biblical churches in every nation of the world that will permeate through their entire nation by multiplying local churches. The intention of every church is to reach their community, nation and every ethnic group of the world.
[Isaiah 52:7, Luke 4:18-19, Ephesians 3:10]
We believe that God uses the five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers to mature the Church to the fullest extent.
An apostolic movement incorporating the five-fold ministry is God’s plan for the end-time Church. We believe that apostolic movements are a critical component of the new structures God is establishing in His Church to contain the new things that God is outpouring. Thus, we seek to function in the fullness of the five-fold ministries and to raise whole generations of five-fold ministers.
[Ephesians 2:19-22, 3:2-6, 4:11-13]
