We Believe

 

Christianity is not about trying to be good enough

It isn’t about being religious. It isn’t a crutch, it isn’t about following rules, it isn’t about doing more good things than bad things and it certainly isn’t about ignoring science and reason.

It is accepting that trying to be good enough for God will always end in failure. It is acknowledging this before Him, the One who made you. It is understanding the need for a broken relationship to be fixed, and it is being free to live trusting in the One who, at great cost, loved you enough to fix it for you.

Being a Christian is about relationship with that person

This is no dead religion. Being christened doesn’t make you a Christian, going to Church doesn’t make you a Christian, and even calling yourself a Christian doesn’t make you a Christian. Something has to have happened. Something has to have changed.

That’s not something to be taken lightly. It certainly isn’t easy. Following Him is the hardest, longest but most rewarding thing you could ever undertake. Christians want to live, love and serve for Him. It is what defines them - not only in this life, but the life to come.

We believe that encountering God changes lives

We are concerned with living that out in tangible and intentional ways. We believe that eternal life and the only true freedom is found in Christ. We believe a relationship with Him changes things forever. You are not the person you used to be. You won’t be perfect, but you don’t live the way that you used to.

We exist to serve the Church

We want to be catalysts for change and help to dismantle the obstacles of misconception that hinder the work of the Church. Christians can’t be complacent living in a Christian bubble and never engaging with the world that they live in. Christians shouldn't be known for legalism and bigotry. We want to live the way Jesus did. Through relationship and love, the world was changed.

We want to stand out and make a difference

He told us to be in the world, yet not of it. We’re supposed to live for something bigger than ourselves. We’re supposed to live for something more.

He is real, and He can change your life
