Our overall mission and vision as a church is “to preach the Word of God and to bring people into membership of God’s family; to teach the Word of God to enhance freedom, promote Christian maturity and bind the people to God for service. To live the word of God, to demonstrate the new life in Christ to the World, and ensure the security of the believer.”

We confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and proclaim him as saviour and Lord of the world. In Christ's name and by His Grace, we accept our mission to preach Christ to others and offer service to God and all people according to His will and purpose.
We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in the covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another. Through baptism in Christ, we enter into newness of life and are made one with the people of God.
In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ and in the power of the Holy Ghost baptism. We partake of the Holy Communion at the table of the Lord where we celebrate with thanksgiving, the saving acts and presence of Christ; in remembrance of His death on the cross, where His blood was shed for us and resurrection body given for the remission of our sins.
Within the universal church of God, we receive the gift of ministry and the light of the scripture and power of anointing for service. In the bond of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God, that we may serve the only true God, whose kingdom has no end.
