The stated purpose of our church is:
"to promote the glory of God by means of preaching and teaching the Word of God, (r)godly living, seeking to win the lost to Christ and to edify believers, (r)by maintaining a local ministry of worship, fellowship and service." 

What guides our approach?
The message of the Bible, properly understood and applied is always relevant. Our goal is therefore to try to relate the Bible to our lives. But in doing so, we often find we must relate ourselves and our world to the Biblical world and find the answers that God gives in that context.
Though the appearance of our world is very different culturally from Biblical times, people still face similar things: joys and sadness, anxieties, hopes and fears, disease, injustice, divorce, death. All such experiences are common to mankind in every age.
God has answers for these troubles and it begins with building our lives on the foundation of God's Word. That begins with our thinking and our values. We therefore give attention to the methodical reading, exposition and application of God's Word. Of course there is a cultural context in which we operate, but above all the culture of God’s people should be a Biblical one.
What is our approach to ministry?
What about our style?
Much is made of 'worship' style in churches today, but what is worship? The first reference to worship in the Bible was when Abel brought an acceptable offering to God, according to His Word. The first use of the word worship in the Bible, is when Abraham went to offer up his son as God had asked him to. In both instances, the faithful obedience to what God desired was the most important feature, and should continue to be.
The Bible teaches that worship is not about songs and music, but about hearing God's will and doing it in every aspect of our lives: All things are to be done to the glory of God. Therefore we endeavour to have a simple and respectful approach to the things of God, since all aspects of our lives are to be informed by the will of God through His Word. As the writer of Hebrews puts it: “...let us lay hold of grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:28,29).
We are not a ‘charismatic’ church, but there is no doubt that a genuine spiritual rebirth is the starting point for a person’s relationship to God, and that He equips the believer with gifts as He chooses. The most important spiritual qualities for ALL Christians are the fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:13-26) and continued spiritual growth (2Peter 1:5-11; 3:18).
