Core Values

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”  Acts 1:8

The snapshot below represents PAXnorth’s Core Values and reflects three of the primary ‘non-negotiables’ that make up the heart of who we feel God has called us to be…

These Core Values define our ‘shape’, however much of our ‘shape’ is influenced by the needs of the community in which God has placed us, and the people God calls to join us on our journey as a church body.

The shape we have is negotiable to a degree, as long as it upholds the Authority of scripture and our core values of Faith, Value, and Culture.

God: God is primary.

Jesus Christ: Christ is central.

Authentic Spiritual Life: is for everyday.

For a deeper explanation of what Faith means to us at PAXnorth we encourage you to listen to this.

Gospel: Changes everything for us.

Worship: A ‘must’ response to God’s work.

Mission: We exist to bless the world as an act of worship for the sake of the Gospel.

Here: God is here, in loving pursuit of the world.

Now: the Church is called to engage culture with the gospel, not hide from it.

Expressed: Authentic spirituality in everyday life reflects the mission of Christ.
