Our DNA

Three words are at the heart of what we do. They are: 


ENJOY - EQUIP - ENGAGE

ENJOY -

(God) 

Through our worship [Worship the LORD with reverence and rejoice with trembling. Psalm 2.11

Through His word [Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you…Colossians 3.16aYour word is a

lamp to my feet and a light to my pathPsalm 119.105]

Through doing His will [If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have

kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. John 15.10]


(Each Other) 

In Christian love [By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one 

anotherJohn 13.35]

In unity [Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to

house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and

having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who

were being saved. Acts 2.46-47]


EQUIP –            

In our gifts [And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and

some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building 

up of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4.11-12]

 In the Word [All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for

training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work

2 Timothy 3.16-17]


ENGAGE -         

As witnesses […you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and 

even to the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1.8]

 In making disciples [Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name

of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all the I commanded you

Matthew 28.19-20]

In defense of the gospel [but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a 

defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness

and reverence; 1 Peter 3.15]

With love [But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your 

reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and 

evil men. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Luke 6.35-36]
