About Us

The seeds for this church were first sown in Pr. Navin Thomas’ heart in 2013 when he was studying at a theological college in Bangalore. After some initial scouting trips to Delhi, Pr. Navin and his family came to Delhi in 2015. His first stint as a Pastor was from May 2015 to December 2017 when he pastored a new church plant in Dwarka, Delhi. But the desire to plant a church in North Delhi, near Delhi University, kept growing and finally Pr. Navin and his family moved there in March 2018. Soon a small group of people joined them and they started having monthly meetings at their home. And this group formed the core team for the church launch on 21st April, 2019.

  • VISION
  • MISSION

We exist to proclaim the excellencies of God and to live a life of faith and obedience

The Bible reveals the excellencies of God and as a Church we seek to faithfully read it, understand it and to proclaim it. And it is our passion to proclaim the excellencies of God in all our Sunday Services and Small Group meetings. We believe that it will result in transformed lives in the form of radical faith and obedience to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Exalting the Triune God

In our Sunday service and all other meetings, we are intentional about exalting the Triune God, for He is worthy. We choose songs, prepare sermons, pray and fellowship in ways that God will be exalted in everything.         

(1 Cor. 10:31; Rev. 4:11; Col. 3:17)

Christ-centred Preaching and Teaching

Jesus taught us that all the scriptures point to him and therefore we also make it our goal to see how each passage can be understood and applied in the light of the life and death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Every command needs to be obeyed and every promise should be received in the name of Jesus!   

(Lk.24:27, 44-46; 1 Cor. 2:2; 2 Cor. 1:20)

Practice of Spiritual Disciplines

As a church we seek to diligently practice the spiritual disciplines of the study of the Word, Prayer and Fellowship. We emphasize these disciplines as crucial to the spiritual maturity of every believer and strive to find ways to be more consistent and committed to them.    

(Acts 2:42, 46-47; 6:4)

Raising Leaders and Planting Churches

We want to raise leaders who have clarity about the Gospel, the boldness to preach it and are equipped to disciple others in the light of this glorious Gospel. But we are especially passionate about sending out these leaders to plant new Gospel-centred churches.

(Eph. 4:11-12; Acts 14:23; 20:28; 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9)

Our Values

Biblical

The Bible as the Word of God is authoritative and we want to submit to its authority. Therefore, we look to it for wisdom and counsel for every area of our lives. At times when any other form of authority clashes with the Bible, the latter will hold priority in our thoughts and actions.  

(Acts 4:18-20, 5:28-29)

Multi-Cultural

The Bible gives us the grand vision of a great multitude from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues standing before the throne of God. We wish to see that grand vision taking shape in and through our church also. Therefore, we welcome people from every ethnic/cultural background and we want to be multi-cultural in our membership and leadership. 

(Rev. 7:9-10)

Integrity

 We want to exercise integrity in all our dealings, before God and before men. The ungodly man loves deceit but the Bible calls him blessed who has no deceit in himself. Integrity is one of the marks of a transformed life and we want this value to guide our ways, not only as individuals but also as a Church.    

(Prov. 11:1, 3, 20:23; Ps. 32:2; Rom. 3:13; 2 Cor. 8:20-21)

Our Beliefs

  • THE WORD OF GOD
  • TRINITY
  • GOD THE FATHER
  • JESUS CHRIST
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • DOCTRINES OF GRACE
  • REGENERATION
  • THE CHURCH
  • CHRISTIAN CONDUCT
  • THE ORDINANCES
  • THE LAST THINGS

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31,32; John 20:31; Acts 20:32

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

Genesis 1:1,26; John 1:1,3; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24; Ephesians 4:5,6

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Luke 10:21,22; Matthew 23:9; John 3:16; 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Timothy 1:1,2 & 2:5,6; 1 Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.

Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1, 20:28; Romans 9:5, 8:32; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:21-23; John 20:30, 31; Matthew 20:28; Eph

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.

John 14:16,17,26 & 15:26,27; John 16:9-14; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26

We believe in the doctrines of grace which have been historically summarized in five points – (1) Total Depravity of Man (2) Unconditional Election (3) Limited Atonement (4) Irresistible Grace and (5) Perseverance of the Saints. These doctrines essentially teach us that our salvation is not our own initiative but it is the sovereign work of God in our hearts. These doctrines are precious for our Church and we want to zealously preach and teach it.

(Eph. 2:1-3; Acts 13:48; Rom. 9:10-18; Jn. 17:6, 9, 19; Eph. 5:25; 2 Cor. 4:4-6; Rom. 8:29-30)

We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation. But regeneration is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit by which we repent and trust in Jesus Christ and become new creatures, delivered from condemnation and receive eternal life. Regeneration is instantaneous and is accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit through the instrumentality of the Word of God when the repentant sinner, as enabled by the Holy Spirit, responds in faith to the divine provision of salvation.

John 3:3-7, 5:24; Titus 3:5

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.

Ephesians 2:19-22; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:19-21; Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:23-25

We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow men; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:31; Romans 12:1-3; Hebrews 12:1-2; John 14:15,23-24; 1 John 2:3-6; 2 Corinthians 9:6-9; 1 Corinthians 4:2; Colossians 1:9-10

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church, baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement, the eternal joy of the righteous and the endless suffering of the wicked.
