Besides our true worship of God as a way of life in which we daily reflect back to God the radiance of His worth, we also gather for worship and share the following values with the rest of our members in this regard.

  1. God-centeredness. Practicing a public worship form that communicates the supremacy of God in all of life. Going hard after God as an all-satisfying end in Himself.
  2. Bible based and Bible saturated services. Pursuing fervent, biblical, Spirit-anointed, God-exalting, personally-helpful preaching.
  3. Emphasising the importance of both head and heart in our worship experience. We believe that the individual must carry deep, strong, real emotions towards God without being manipulated to emotional stirrings in which there is no clear thinking about spiritual things based on Biblical truth.
  4. Communicating in large and small group settings with authenticity and transparency. We are committed to an atmosphere of reverence, passion and wonder, rather than a shallow frivolous flippancy filled with hypocrisy.
  5. Being a singing people with growing appreciation for diverse expressions of love for God. We believe in a balance between historic and contemporary music, as long as it is singable, Biblical and God glorifying. We desire to see an increase in a humble willingness to embrace others whose tastes are different than ours.
  6. Creating a place for spontaneity and lay ministry to the body. Ministry is not just about the pulpit, but also about the pew.
  7. Commitment to a multi-cultural, multi-generational ethos at all times. We believe there are only two groups of people, namely the saved and the unsaved. We gather to worship with the saved from all generations and cultures that are comfortable with our ethos, and we leave to evangelise the lost amongst all generations and cultures.

God exalting worship therefore takes place when we……..
