To raise a people of difference who are making a difference (Exodus 19:5-6)

People of difference:
Our goal is to raise a people who have a clear understanding of who they are in God and what they can do through Him. We desire to see every person minister as a Priest to God through a personal relationship with Him. We therefore support people to discover God for themselves and grow in this understanding.

Making a difference:
We believe in impacting the society positively with the love of Jesus. We therefore challenge our members to positively impact their families, work environment and local communities. As a Church, we are committed to meeting identified needs in the Local community and supporting other organisations doing the same.

Our Mission is to:

  1. Adore God our father for who He is, what He is doing and what He has promised to do.
  2. Appreciate individually and collectively in the knowledge of Christ and in character, striving towards full maturity in Christ.
  3. Act in love towards one another, recognising that we are each other’s resource and fellow members of the body of Christ.
  4. Advance the Kingdom of God through sharing the good news of the Gospel and serving the people of Northampton.

We Adore, Appreciate, Act and Advance
