We are a church who is focused on our King, Jesus. We believe He should be at the center of everything we do, and everything each believer does. It is all for Him, and for His Kingdom.

We want to see every believer trained, equipped, resourced and released into what God has called them to. He has a specific purpose and inheritance for each person.

We are a church who does our best to live out the mandate given in Acts 1:8, to go into our city, region, nation and beyond, advancing His Kingdom. We believe in planting churches as a way of advancing His Kingdom, and will do what we can to help make this possible by resourcing church plants with finances and people to the best of our ability.

We also believe in the Great Commission given in Matt 28:18-19, that we are to go make disciples of all nations. We want to see His Kingdom advanced in our city, in our nation, and beyond our borders.

We work in strong partnership with the New Covenant Ministries International team, who are a trans-local team that minster into many countries across the world.

How We Do Church

The Church Model

Our church is led by a Team of elders who oversee the different ministries in the life of the church. We believe that there is an opportunity for everyone to be involved in what God has called us to do. We believe that the local church should be:

    1    Autonomous and Self Governed yet accountable to an outside team, in our case NCMI.

    2    Self financed by the tithes and offerings of the local believers.

    3    Eldership Governed – not authoritarian, but led by a Team of elders who, together with the lead elder, help set the Vision, Direction and Doctrine of the church.

    4    A Dynamic model which allows for feedback and participation of everyone in the church with Jesus Christ as the Vision.

Church Government

As stated, we believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. We believe in the New Testament model of church Government where we see Apostles planting, establishing and working into Local Churches, raising up an Eldership Team who would then lead and govern the local church working together with a team of Deacons. (Titus 1:5. Acts 14:21-28.)

The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honour, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching (1 Tim 5:17). Leadership at all levels is always in plurality (Church - Acts 15:22; Elders - Acts 20:17-31, 1 Peter 5:1; Deacons - Acts 6:1-7; Trans-local - Eph 4:11-16). 

Biblical Leadership is one of shepherding, going ahead of the sheep, leading them to green pastures and still waters (Ps 23) and protecting the sheep against savage wolves (Acts 20:29). Leadership starts at home (1 Tim 3:5). The Greek word here is “proistemi” which means to stand before. Our leadership style should therefore not simply be one of management or rulership but one of standing in front as a shepherd – leading by example, inspiring, protecting, and caring.
