Vision and Values
Growing an international community to reach a multicultural society for Christ.
Come together to learn to live Christ across our scattered networks
Send out to serve and speak Christ along our different networks
Send on to witness and work for Christ in new networks
Basis and values
We believe that a personal relationship with God through Christ is at the heart of who we are and that we are dependent on His Spirit and prayer. We believe that the Bible is God's living and active Word and see it as central to all we do as a Church. On the basis of its teaching our values are:
Growth not standing still
We are committed to see people coming to Christ and growing as disciples in the context of a changing congregation and a changing society.
Partnership not individualism
We aim to be a community of fellow workers as we seek to release the potential of the whole body for Christ through teaching, sharpening, valuing, supporting and being accountable to one another.
Engagement not retreat
We are committed to serving the society around us and speaking Christ into it, and so to maintaining and developing our networks into it.
Christ not culture
We are committed to Christ above our culture and our engagement must be shaped by biblical thinking and values and must resist what is incompatible to Christ in our culture.
