H2O's statement of Values
This is what we believe and who we are
Church as it Should be
We are a Body of Christ at H2O and every believer plays their part.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 1 Corinthians 12:27
We serve God with passion and heart at H2O.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord. Romans 12:10
We see leadership is critical at H2O. We acknowledge leadership is less about titles and more about leading.
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1
We focus on people not buildings. At H2O we believe that people and people development is more important than building and building development.
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5
We participate in H2O gatherings that are a celebration of Jesus, not a funeral for Jesus.
Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. Psalm 47:1
You are so Gifted
We always seek to create new ways for people to serve at H2O.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of Gods grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
Never too Old, Not too young
We encourage people of all ages, including the young, to serve in the ministries of H2O. There is no separation based on age.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit Matthew 28:19
A Fair Dinkum Aussie Church
We engage Australian culture so that H2O feels like home for non-church people.
I have become all things to all men that I may by all means save some. 1 Corinthians 9:22
Spirit of Service
We operate with a Christ like spirit of service that underpins all we do at H2O.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45
