Christ at the Center
Everything Bayside will strive to accomplish will centre around Christ. He will be the starting point of all endeavours and efforts. With Christ firmly fixed at the centre of the ministry, serving guests well will be an expression of love, not simply an obligation.
The Bible as our Guide
The Bible is Gods captured word to us and carries the weight of His authority. We believe that God knows what is best for us and so His book will be the source of our wisdom, the source of our teachings and the guide for how we conduct ourselves.
Team Oriented Ministry
We have been created to serve in community, together more can be accomplished. We are committed to partnering, supporting and valuing each and our local churches to further the Kingdom impact of Bayside.
Pursuit of Excellence
God’s reputation is on the line and so we cannot afford to settle for “good enough”. Having experienced his grace and love we will pursue excellence in all endeavours, giving our all for His names sake.
Godly leaders mature, discovering better and more effective ways of influencing the world around them. We are committed to growing, seeking out new and fresh ways of serving. We are committed to leading by example so that we can shape established and emerging leaders of the highest capacity.
