Values
1. BEING THE CHURCH
RELATIONSHIP

First and foremost, the church must be a place in which God joins people together in relationships to form a community of believers.

HOME CELL & CELEBRATION

Church life should include both the celebration of the weekend worship services and the intimacy of smaller relational groups (cells).

MINISTRY OF ALL BELIEVERS

All believers are called to minister and therefore they can serve one another in their God-given gifts and talents.

LIBERTY IN ACCOUNTABILITY

The church is unleashed when people are disciple and given a liberty to be released in their creativity and gifts yet required to walk in accountability with one another.

2. ADVANCING THE KINGDOM
ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

We must never lose sight of the ultimate mission of the church, which is the advancement of the Kingdom of God and bringing people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

3. BIBLICAL BUT RELEVANT

The church should never compromise biblical truths and imperatives, yet at the same time the church should seek to be relevant to the needs of a modern world.

  • a)
    GWFCI values are built upon the principle that each member young or old is of great value to God and therefore we are one big family of God. The ministries in the church focuses on bringing the best out of individual's God given gifts and talents through Holy Spirit empowerment for ministry.
  • b)
    We value corporate praises and worship in the house of the Lord; we are committed to anointed, Christ centered and exalted praises and worship that brings glory to God. The praises and worship are designed to draw God's people into His presence and to exalt the name of our resurrected Christ.
  • c)
    We value the uniqueness of every individual and family God brings to us, we see everyone through the loving eyes of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • d)
    We value multi-cultural community spirit that God has brought to us, we see that as the shadow of the ingathering of Christ's church in heaven when people from all nations shall gather before the throne in worship (Revelation 7:9,10).
  • e)
    We value marriage as instituted by God union between a man and a woman for companionship and the nurturing of children.
  • f)
    We value children for they are special to God and they are in our care as gifts to love, help, encourage and build in the way and the fear of God. They are part of the church now and not just the future leaders (Matthew 19:13-15, Proverbs 1:7).
  • g)
    We value evangelism, home and foreign missions; the lost souls matters to God and therefore matters to us. God loves them and does not want us to be like a club, or build up wall against them but be people who share His love and care dearly for them.
  • h)
    We value the preaching and teaching of the word of God, we do that by way of training schools, disciple every believer to teach others. We provide clear biblical leadership training programs for every member as grounds for excellent and quality Spirit filled servant leaders for ministry.
  • i)
    We value the universal Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and the network of Churches and Ministries working together for "The Great Commission" and brotherhood (Matthew 28:16-20, Psalm 133).
4. HOUSE OF PRAYER

The church is to be a people committed to praying for others. Jesus declared, "My house shall be a house of prayer for all people." (Matthew 21:13)
