Meet our amazing Senior Pastors Timothy and Shaveh Feder
Meet Didi Marques who heads up the Pastoral Ministry
Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all
your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your
neighbour as yourself.’
• Spirit filled, sound teaching and preaching

• Koinonia – Deeply Relational Multi-Generational & Multi-Cultural Community caring about
the Physical, Emotional & Spiritual Well-Being of all.
We are a multi-generational and multi-cultural people that believe in deep relational
connection with God and with all people. We are a people that practice and value the
living Word of God; Holy Spirit encounters and authentic and prophetic worship.
We are a church of committed disciples who will seek to glorify God and communicate the Gospel to build the Church (Matt 16.16-19; 28. 18-20).

• Healing and mercy
• Authentic and prophetic worship
EXPERIENCING THE LIVING WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE)
We highly value the Bible as the Word of God – it is living, powerful and active (Hebrews 4:12).
Therefore, our approach is to encounter God through His Word. The Bible is to be experienced
and lived in as opposed to being analysed and evaluated. It was written to stimulate faith and
bring into contact with God, rather than a vehicle for doctrine and argumentation of certain positions.
(Matthew 4:4 – nourishment and strength comes as you enjoy the meal, not as you study the menu!)
GOD OUR FATHER, JESUS CHRIST AS OUR HEAD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT AS OUR GUIDE AND TEACHER IN THE CHURCH
Jesus is the origin and owner of the Church and therefore anything that happens in the Church
should be from Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16-20).
Because He has all authority, He delegates it to whom He wills for the fulfilment of certain
functions; and because everything is answerable to Him we recognize and release these functions
(Ephesians 2:20-23; 4:7-13).
The Holy Spirit resides in the Church to empower us to fulfil God’s purpose (John 14:16-17; Acts 1:6-8).
Therefore, His presence and ministry in our midst must be honoured and received.
RELATIONSHIPS OF MUTUAL RESPECT AND HONOUR
Relationships are built on devotion to one another. (God relates to us in the context of covenant
commitment.) Relationships are an end in themselves and are not to be used, exploited or
manipulated for selfish gain. (John 15:13; I John 3:16).
Church structure is built on relationships, and not positions and titles (Matthew 20:24-28). This
brings about strength, maturity and flexibility in the Church as a whole and in the people as
individuals (which facilitated effective functioning of every part; Ephesians 4:15-16).
These relationships have a three-fold application:
• Our relationship with God
• Our relationship with ourselves
• Our relationship with one another.
THE UNIQUENESS AND GIFTING OF THE INDIVIDUAL
We honour the priesthood of every believer (I Peter 2:5).
Every believer must minister, hear from God, and pursue his/her own calling in God.
Each individual is valued and treated as a person. In every exchange we want to make them feel
loved because that is what God does to us. (John 3:16; Jeremiah 31:3)
Each believer has a special place in the Body of Christ – God has chosen it! Each believer has his/
her identity in Christ (I Corinthians 12:13 – 18; Romans 12:5).
HEALING AND MERCY
Health and wholeness is really God’s desire for everyone (Mark 1:40-42; Acts 10:38; 3 John 2).
We have a comprehensive and integrated view of healing. Healing is for the whole man and his
environments. It begins with the spirit; past hurts and emotions are made whole; mental and
demonic disorders are healed; the body is touched, poverty is broken and social relationships are
restored and blessed (Luke 4:18).
Healing is both an act and a process. It is recovery and change – growth into maturity and
wholeness. A healing environment is created and maintained through a ministry of mercy. Mercy is the spirit
and attitude of healing, and results in “love in action”
(Mark 10:47; Luke 17:11-14; Matthew 15:21 & Matthew 17:15).
We love mercy, inside and outside the church, and we always seek to extend it because God has
been merciful to us (Matthew 5:7; Matthew 18:33; Micah 6:8 & 2 Samuel 24:4).
AUTHENTIC AND PROPHETIC WORSHIP
Jesus said that the Father seeks those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:24)
We focus on the message and the truth of Jesus Christ in worship. “Let the message about Christ,
in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts” (Colossians 3:16).
In order to worship in truth, we must know the truth, which is found in the Bible. We must
continually renew our minds to the Word of God by spending time studying every day (Rom 12:2)
Authenticity is important to us as a worshipping community.
God is Spirit and therefore we worship in spirit. We worship from our spirits that have been made
alive in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:5)
Spirit-filled worship is “prophetic” worship. It declares the goodness of God at all times, in every
season and in every circumstance.
