Mission Statement

God has called us to build him a house of prayer for all nations. That's the big picture, the dream, the vision we are pursuing. Yet God is so gracious that he also breaks it down into manageable areas. That's what we call our mission statement. It is a way of taking the vision God has given us and begin to give it greater detail.

Our vision is simple and easy to remember: Building God a house of prayer for all nations. But what is so of the detail behind this 9 word sentence.

God - It is all about him. Where we honour him, seeking him and his kingdom first as we give him our lives. A place where we love to worship

House - It isn't a factory, a business, an entertainment venue - it is a house. A place of family and belonging.

Prayer - It is about growing closer to him, maturing, developing and becoming more like Jesus. A place where we love to grow.

Building - It is a working church. Where people serve each other and others outside the church with love. A place where we love to serve.

All Nations - It is a church for all, reaching all, open to all. A place to welcome and receive life. A place where we love to reach out.

Out mission statement seeks to grab these ideas in one sentence.
