transparent - ABOUT Vision back - ABOUT vision front - ABOUT IS TO BE A CHURCH THAT RESPONDS TO AND SHARES THE LOVE OF GOD

THE LOVE
OF GOD…

God loves us more than we can imagine. The Bible says that God is love itself (1 John 4:7-8). In fact, we believe that God loves us so much that he sent his son Jesus for us. 

…CAUSES A RESPONSE…

We believe that the more we understand the depths of God’s love for us and the good news of Jesus, the harder it is to do anything but worship Him! Because of God’s great love for us, we respond by giving Him the honour, glory, and praise He deserves. We are followers of Jesus.

…WHICH LEADS US TO SHARE.

The natural overflow of our personal response to God is sharing His love with others. We can do that in two ways:
1) by doing our best to love people in the same way that God loves us
2) by telling people about the incredible love of God and the good news of Jesus!

OUR FOUNDATIONS AND VALUES

To see this vision realised we have some important foundations and values as a church. 

FOUNDATIONS

 

“Built on a New Testament pattern of church engaging with our 21st century culture”

In the New Testament, the Bible gives us the model of how Church works best and we want to use this as our basis for Church life. We also want to engage with todays 21st century culture showing that Jesus is as relevant today as He was 2000 years ago. Everything we believe is built on the foundation of our faith in Jesus Christ. We can only have life in all its fulness by knowing Him and we want to help others know Him too, therefore responding to and sharing the love of God.

We see throughout the New Testament that the church was a people of the “Word and the Spirit”. As a church we believe that the Bible is the word of God. We base all we believe and do on the teaching of the Bible. We also want to be a people full of the Spirit of God, living lives knowing his presence and power at work day by day.

VALUES

There are many things that make us the church family we are. But there are five values that really shape us. These are:

Artboard 10 - ABOUT
WORSHIP

We are made by God and for God, so we want God to be at the centre of all we do.

Artboard 12 - ABOUT
CHANGED LIVES

God’s power in us changes us to be more like Him, We don’t want to stay the same as we are when we first encounter God; we want to grow as He works in our lives.

Artboard 11 - ABOUT
A PLACE TO SERVE

We are all created to serve God and as believers in Jesus we have unique God given abilities that we can use to serve Him and each other.

Artboard 2 - ABOUT
TELLING OTHERS

Jesus came to seek and save those who don’t yet know Him and as Christians we are His ambassadors; people who tell others about Jesus. He has changed our lives for the better and we want to share the amazing news that we can know God because of what Jesus has done.

Artboard 9 - ABOUT
FAMILY

God made us for relationship with Him and each other. Being a part of a Church community enables us to do life together with others who know and love God. We cannot become like Jesus on our own, We need each other.
