grace enabled gospel transformation
Through his death, Jesus put to death our old life ruled by sin. Through his resurrection, he gave us a new life, a new birth into a living hope. It is this new life that we now live in Jesus Christ. This means every aspect of our lives must now be saturated by the gospel. Jesus is not just for our Sundays. At KINGSWAY, we strive to live this transformed life in every facet of life. We are far from being perfect but we are progressively being made perfect everyday until the day Jesus returns. So we live our lives prayerfully and humbly by His grace, with the power of the Spirit and for the glory of God.
grounded in the word of god
We also believe that God continues to speak His word, the Bible, to transform and renew us today. So we are committed to sit under the word of God to teach, rebuke, correct and train us for righteousness. We want God to set the agenda in our lives so the majority of our preaching is expository. We believe every word in Scripture is God's inspired word so we study the Bible book by book, chapter by chapter and verse by verse. We believe that God's word continues to be relevant today so we work hard at showing the relevance of the Bible through engaging and applicable teaching that speaks into our everyday life.
maturity through life in community
Jesus didn't save us to be disconnected individuals. He saved us to be part of a God's family. At KINGSWAY we commit to living transformed lives as a community together. We will pray for one another. We will build one another up with the word of God. We will love one another in practical ways and share our lives with each other. We will speak the truth of the gospel and bring this truth to bare on each other's lives. We will gently rebuke, correct and keep each other accountable. We will strive to live in peace and pursue reconciliation when conflicts arise. The goal of all this is to love one another as Christ has loved us (John 13:34). So we commit to meeting with each other regularly and frequently that we might live transformed lives together. As we do this, we pray that, together, we will grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ that we might be filled to the measure of the fullness of God. (Eph 3:18-19)
one christ in multi culture
Jesus is the God and redeemer of people from all nations and tribes. Revelation 7:9 says that when Christ returns there will be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people and language standing before him declaring that salvation belongs to Jesus who sits on the throne. At KINGSWAY we believe this to be true. So we long to reflect that multi-nation, multi-ethnic, multi-culture gathering in our church today. We welcome all people from all backgrounds and cultures and in doing so, we seek to declare that JESUS is for all peoples.
global mission through local action
We believe that Jesus has called us not just to enjoy a new life in Him but also to share the great news of Jesus' salvation to the world. At KINGSWAY we seek to obey Christ's command to be salt and light to the world (Matt 5:13-14). We do this in two ways. Firstly, we do it by living such good lives in this world that others would join us in praising our Father in heaven (1 Peter 2:12). We seek to be a blessing to the world by living holy lives and performing acts of practical love to those in need. Secondly, we do it by calling people to repentance through the proclamation of the gospel (Acts 17:13). We do so locally in our suburb and city and we do so globally as we pray, support, train and send gospel workers to the world. We want his glory to cover the heavens and his praise to fill the earth.
