Core Values

If we had to summarize what CGC Toronto English is all about, our core values would be a good place to start. We strive to uphold these values as a church family in order to serve and honour God and fulfill the mission He has given us.

  1. biblical foundation
    We value an inquiring, thinking and active faith that is firmly rooted in scripture. Acts 2:42, 17:11.
  2. intentional discipleship
    We value balanced Christian living in the study of the Word, prayer, community life, and local evangelism, and to nurture members to do likewise. Acts 2:42-47; Luke 9:23.
  3. active service
    We value active gift-based engagement within the church, in our community, and beyond. Eph 4:11-16; I Cor.12:1-31; Isaiah 61; Micah 6:8; James 1:27.
  4. global missions
    We value a commitment to sending, praying for, assisting and financially supporting missions, especially to unreached people groups. Matt 28:18-19, Phil. 4: 10-20.
  5. church-planting
    We value a focus on dynamically growing disciples to maturity to reproduce and plant new churches. Acts 13:1-3, I Cor. 3:6.
  6. cultural transformation
    We seek to transform our culture in Christ even as we are informed by our Chinese and Canadian heritage. Rom. 12:1-2; Rev. 7:9.
