Torchbearer Values

Discipleship

As disciples of Christ, we take up our crosses to follow Him, submitting everything to Him. As disciplemakers, we help others to learn how to walk with Him, grow in His character and equip them in their spiritual gifts and talents to fulfill God’s will for their lives.

 

Key Scriptures: 1 Cor. 11:1, Luke 6:47-48, 2 Cor. 5:14-15, John 21:15-17, Matthew 28:16-20, John 13:34-35,, 1 Cor. 12: 4-11, Eph. 4:11-13, Jeremiah 29:11

Presence-Driven

As His children, we seek a greater degree of intimacy and awareness of God’s presence individually and corporately. We desire to lift up our lives as living worship, prostrating our hearts and minds to Him continually.  It is in His presence where His love and power are manifested, where His mysteries are encountered and His miracles are unleashed.

Kingdom Ambassadors

As Christ’s children and ambassadors, we bring His message of reconciliation to all whom we encounter. We live our lives in a way that carries His presence; His grace and goodness are evident and the fruits of the Spirit abound. We carry His light into our communities, igniting transformation and healing through the power of Christ Jesus.

Equipping in the Word & the Spirit

We are passionate about God’s Word: we love to hear our Father’s voice and learn more about the Son and the Spirit through carefully examining His Word. We also believe in carrying the authority of Scripture on earth as it is in heaven, partnering with the Holy Spirit, manifesting His gifts and demonstrating His Kingdom.
