Our core values are the underlying principles that guide us in making decisions, determining priorities, setting goals, allocating resources and carrying out programs. They are the defining characteristics of NWFC and are drawn from biblical teachings.
EXPERIENCING GOD AS FATHER
Experiencing God as our true Father just like Jesus did will change our lives. Every child of God needs to feel, know, and experience the unconditional, extravagant love of Father God.
John 14:6-13, Luke 15:11-32, Romans 8:35-38
INTIMACY WITH GOD
Every follower of Jesus is designed to communicate with God. God speaks to us through a variety of ways and means. Our response is to listen, and in turn, talk to God through prayer, obey Him, and learn to be a doer of His Word.
John 10:3-4, Hebrews 1:1-2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, James 1:22
RESTORATION OF THE HEART
Before we can truly love others, we must love ourselves and that means allowing the Spirit of God to transform our spirit, soul and body. Our Father is able to reveal to us issues & hurts that need healing. The Holy Spirit knows what we need to believe and receive in order to become whole.
2 Corinthians 7:1, 2 Corinthians 3:18, John 16:14, John 15:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:23
EMPOWERING IN THE ANOINTING
The anointing is the power of the Holy Spirit for breakthroughs from poverty, brokenness, ill health, and oppression from demonic forces, that takes us into incredible favour. We desire for all to receive these breakthroughs and then to release the anointing to others.
Luke 4:16-21, Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-9
OUR CHURCH COMMUNITY
Father, Son & Spirit
We believe in God the Father, who created all things and who reaches out to embrace all people. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died for the sins of the world, rose again on the third day, ascended into heaven and whose return is imminent. We believe in the Holy Spirt, who is the third person of the Trinity. We believe He is present in the Church to reveal and instruct, comfort and correct, empower and direct the followers of Jesus. He gives good gifts in order to build His Church.
We believe the Bible is the inspired written word of God, therefore, it is invaluable in our growth and development as followers of Jesus.
We believe that Jesus Christ loves His church, and that through the church God plans to make His saving love known to the world.
We believe that our highest calling is to worship God in word and action. We aim to express this through the love and devotion embodied in our music, and the compassion and generosity embodied in our lifestyles.
We believe the Kingdom of God is effervescent, ever expanding and fully active until the day we see the finished work of the cross finally established with a new heaven and new earth.
