The success of this vision will ultimately be determined by the strength of our partnerships.

2. Relevant Worship
We value heartfelt worship that honors God, is directed by the spirit and changes lives.

We believe that we should be an accurate reflection of the cultures which are represented in the location. In order for this to happen we strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere to individuals from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We believe that to function as a multicultural church opportunities for ministry and leadership are available to those from cultures other than the majority. Although the leadership places a priority on being led by the Spirit in releasing individuals into different positions, no person shall be denied these opportunities based upon their ethnicity.

We believe that the prayer of faith shall heal the sick. We believe that through prayer the Lord shall raise up the sick. We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to pray for His healing virtue (Isaiah 53`:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:18).
We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal blessedness of those made righteous in and through Christ and the endless suffering of the wicked. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again (Mark 9:43-48; John 5:28-29; John 11:25-26).
We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers and in the eternal damnation and punishment of the non believers. We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal and glorious return of Jesus Christ the “Blessed Hope” of the Church (John 3:16; 1 John 2:25; 1 John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23).
8. The Church:
We believe in the local church. This consists of a company of believers in Jesus Christ who have a credible profession of faith and have associated for worship, work, and fellowship (Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:25-27; I Corinthians 12:12-14).
