To lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Four “G’s”
Grace is God’s love for us. It is the expression of and effect of God’s love on human beings. It is unlimited and freely given. It cannot be earned and no one is deserving of it. It is not due to anyone by any right but is extended to us all because “God is love” (1John 4:8). All of us have the capacity to receive and experience grace.
Following Jesus’ example, we value building relationships through which we can encourage spiritual growth and experience what it means to be a Christ-centred community. Community groups provide an opportunity for developing faith and character, and are a way of learning to love ourselves as we care for others.
As we grow in our Christian experience, we are transformed into the likeness of Jesus, being strengthened in our faith through prayer, studying the Word of God and reaching out to others in love.
Recognizing that everything we have is from God and that He will supply our every need, we are inspired to give freely of ourselves, our time, our talents and treasures as the visible expression of our love for God. Generosity is one of the most powerful ways to love our neighbour.
