We value living as witnesses (living out a personal testimony) and are passionately committed to evangelism (the proclamation of the gospel). We value practicing mission across every spectrum of our ministry environments within the local church and wider community.
The gospel is a 'told' story, and we are a 'sent' people. This means that those who came before us were our benefactors; now we must be the same to the generations who follow. The Gospel did not start with us, and though we seek our Saviour's imminent return, we must view the Gospel as not ending with us. We will labour to multiply the local church. We are not solely satisfied with the pleasure of Christian fellowship, as sweet as it may be, but instead are compelled to widen the boarders of God's Kingdom. The church must grow. And when we no longer fit within our meeting places, we will continue to grow. We will continue to 'tell the story' and be the 'sent ones', sharing the Gospel wherever we go. We will be both a light on a hill, uncovered and unashamed, as well as those who take the light out into the darkness. Both are necessary. God's covenant people should be attractive to a world that longs to know what it means to belong. Yet God's covenant people should always be on a gospel mission to impact the communities around them. We endeavour to embody both realities; attractional and missional.
We directly implement and support a variety of gospel initiatives in our local community. As a part of the National Chaplaincy Program, we are excited by the tireless work done by our School and Community Chaplain, Brenton Pobjie. We are also thrilled with our child mentoring program, Kids Hope Aus, coordinated in our local primary school by Michelle Bryan, both of which are supported by a stream of volunteers who are eager to demonstrate the love of Christ with those they are working with.
We also actively support various efforts around the world, each seeking to bring the message of the Gospel to their corner of the globe.
