Core Values

Community

We value standing together in fellowship, enabling one another in times of adversity and in times of celebration as we work together for the extension of God's Kingdom.

Unity in Diversity

We value our differences for they encourage a more holistic experience of God.

Integrity

We value consistency of belief and practice in each woman's life.  We work together to enhance and strengthen the identity we each have been given in Christ Jesus.

Justice

We value working towards the justice that is inherent in the reign of Christ; a justice that promotes reconciliation and equal participation for all persons regardless of race, gender, age, status or cultural background.

Service

We value service as our genuine response to the love we have experienced in Christ Jesus and as the way He desires us to express and develop our God given gifts.
