Core values our everyday discipleship and the ministry of our Church

The Scriptures have to speak God’s grace and truth into our lives

The bible is and

2.  What do we believe?

Scripture is of God

 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 2 Tim. 3:16 (NIV) 

The bible God’s will

    Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV) 

The Word of God is

    For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12  

3.   How should we respond?

it regularly

     I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11 (NIV) 

it extensively

   Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Tim. 2:15 (NIV) 

it passionately

      “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke 11:28 (NIV) 

                  Jesus was in the Scripture – we should be too!
