Our Mission

loving God,

loving others,

following Jesus.

We have responded to the call of Jesus to follow in his way:

following his teaching and commands,

his wholehearted love for God,

his servant hearted, self-giving love for others.

Our Vision:

to be a vibrant growing place of hope for our community

Vibrant

We have been made alive in Christ and seek to live that out through embracing our life together with joy, faith and hope in what God is doing in and through us.

We will remember to give thanks and to celebrate,  and to support our members living a full life for God at church, at home, 

in the workplace and in the community.

Our Values

Where our mission is what we are about everyday

in every ministry; and our vision is who we are,

through God's grace, striving to become;

our values are those distinctive aspects of our identity that reflect our particular shared experience and history.

Welcoming & caring

Welcoming & caring

 

We seek to show the love and welcome we have experienced from God in our hospitality and care, believing the best place to grow in understanding and faith is in Christian community.
We value people of all age groups and life circumstance

as unique and essential members of the body of Christ.
Our understanding and practice of our collective life is of being family – with love, care and responsibility to one another.

Connecting seniors

Connecting seniors

 

We care for our older members and provide opportunities

to include friends and neighbours, recognising

that health and ageing can easily lead to social isolation.
Carers and sufferers of Alzheimer’s and dementia receive specialised care and support through the work of

the Haven Day Centre.

Bible based teaching

Bible based teaching

 

We recognise the authority of God’s word in scripture

to speak into our lives, both individually and as a church.

We trust in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in the scriptures themselves and in our understanding of them.

We commit to the work necessary to understand them as heard in their first context and to rightly apply them in our lives,

and to listen to God through participation in Sunday services, home groups, regular devotional reading and prayer.

Connecting with our community

Connecting with our community

 

As a church, we recognise that God has placed us within the wider community of Boronia and the City of Knox.

We live this out through ministering to people in their places and using  our place for community focussed programs.

Each of us are equally called to live as followers of Jesus in the places and relationships we have beyond our church.

Inclusive of children

Inclusive of children

 

We value our children and youth and commit to be welcoming

and to find ways to integrate them into general church life.

We provide a range of age appropriate programs to help them

grow  in their faith and understanding.

We seek to support and engage parents as their primary spiritual carers.
Our heart is to express God’s love to all children,

so we also provide programs for community families.

Missions: sending & supporting

Missions: sending & supporting

 

Jesus sends us into our wider community and beyond.

We support those who have been called out from us

to mission and ministry in Australia and abroad

in tithing our church income, in prayer and in relationship.

In response to God’s generosity to us,

we recognise our responsibility to share his gifts to those

in need through a range of projects and special appeals.
