Impact Values

Impact (and every expression of it - Church, Assist, Centre, College, Campus etc) has 3 core values that define the experience and purpose.

They also serve as an underlying pathway for people

 

BELONG: Grace, Acceptance, Connection, Community, Family, Friendship

BELIEVE: Purpose, Revelation, Discipleship

BECOME: Equipping, Growing, Leadership, Service, Potential

Our Beliefs

  1. We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives.

  2. We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

  3. We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

  4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory over every sin, sickness and limitation and empower us for life and life to the full.

  5. We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our belief in Him and submit to His will for our lives.

  6. We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to walk in the fruits of the spirit and use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues, which is the initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit. We believe the gifts are for every believer.

  7. We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

  8. We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively. We believe that the price paid by Jesus Christ on the cross was sufficient to heal us of every sickness and disease. We also believe in His power to heal the heart and mind thus enabling us to live wholly and complete.

  9. We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

  10. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
