the mission

OUR VISION: To be a community that models the life and love of Jesus to our world and to one another.

OUR MISSION: We are a community in love with Jesus. We are the Church. We have a mission to be Jesus to our friends, neighbors and our world.

WHO WE ARE: We are an outward focused Christian community with an inward commitment to love and disciple others to Jesus’ way of life.

OUR PRACTICE AND VALUES: We value the Word of God, therefore we will read it, study it, talk about it, meditate on it and, by the Grace of God, we will put the Word of God into practice every day of our lives.

We value the Gospel of the Kingdom which Jesus came and died to proclaim, therefore we will proclaim the message of God’s Kingdom as “here, and not yet”, and live our lives in obedience to His commands, as citizens of His Kingdom and servants of the King.

We value people, therefore we will gather together to eat, fellowship, sing and pray for each other. We will make people feel welcome. We will listen to others. We will embrace their pain. We will make their burdens our own. We will see their need and share whatever God has given us to share. We will laugh. We will rejoice. We will celebrate together.

We value service, therefore we will make ourselves available to those who are in need. We will invest our time and talent and energy into the work of the Kingdom of God, serving others as Jesus did, expecting nothing in return.

We value giving, therefore we will demonstrate our dependence on God for all things by freely sharing what God has given us with others. All funds given to The Mission will be distributed to people in need, whether in the community or within our own church family.

We value worship, therefore we will worship God with our entire life. In homes, on the street, at work, in the marketplace, wherever we are there is worship. We are Christ’s ambassadors, and we will offer our lives to God as a living sacrifice that is pleasing to Him. (Romans 12)

We Love The Whole Church- God loves His Bride, in all forms and in every mode, denomination and organization. We ourselves have been, and continue to be, massively blessed by what the Holy Spirit and His people have done in our lives through the traditional church expression.

Therefore, our house church will not be established as an entity that is against the traditional church. We do not ever want to spend our time tearing down what God is doing
