- to promote growth in Christian faith and life that is rooted in the Bible;
- to pray for and to foster renewal by the Holy Spirit in the personal life of members and the corporate life of congregations and councils;
- to explore ways of evangelism, and to encourage participation in forms of outreach relevant to today.
