The Bible 
We believe in the authority and accuracy of the Bible and rely on it for direction in lifestyle and doctrine.

Being created to worship God we seek to do so in our lives and in contemporary, dynamic and personal music and art forms.

The main way to communicate with God and often His primary way of accomplishing His purposes.

(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Philippians 4:6)

The Kingdom of God 
For God to be King in our lives and to see Him at work through signs and wonders.


God has been and is merciful to us in saving us and we will extend that mercy to others.

(Colossians 3:12,13)

Speaking the truth, dealing honestly, living upright lives.

Servant leadership
The significant pastoral authority that rests with leaders must be exercised with humility, selflessness, grace, care and a desire to build the church.
(Mark 10:37, 44-45)

The individual
Everyone (single, married, divorced, bereaved or whatever) is welcome. We aim to support mature relationships and growth in the church family.
(Romans 12:9-10)

We recognise that all who are disciples of Jesus are part of His Church. We will honour all other Christians.

(John 17:21-23)

Collegiate relationships
We are honoured by every person whom God adds to the Vineyard. Together we will build the Church with mutual respect, open communication, determined co-operation and believing and speaking the best about each other.

(1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Culturally relevant 
We avoid speech, behaviour, dress and music that are not accessible to our generation. A comfortable, relaxed environment.

(1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

Reality & simplicity
No hype, emotionalism or intellectualism but a willingness to see God at work through excellent rational thinking and supernatural intervention. Functioning naturally and with cheerfulness.
(James 1:5, Philippians 4:4)
