A Word-based community
We are told to “let the Word of Christ dwell in [us] richly” (Col 3:16). It’s the whole Bible plus nothing, minus nothing; the “Whole Will of God” (Acts 20:29). “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,”(2 Tim 3:16.)
The bible is God’s inerrant, flawless and inspired Word to be used by us in all matters. The Bible is our supreme authority for life, faith, morals, truth and salvation.
A Prophetic community
A Christ-centred message is the very breath of prophecy (Rev 19:10) and must be the focus of our message. As a prophetic people, we must be able to see God’s purposes for us. We must through the power of the Spirit be “stirred up” and “built-up” (1 Cor 14:3).
Thus, as God’s people we must see God’s purpose, prepare for God’s purpose and become what God has purposed for us.
An Obedient community
Our passion to understand truth and hear God must always flow into obedience (Luk 6:46 – 49). We value radical obedience to God’s voice
(1 Sam 15:22).
