“We are a family on a mission to bring life to the city. We are a community for everyone to belong, with a life changing message for everyone to believe and a vision for everyone to become the people God has created us to be.”
We are a community for everyone to belong…the kind of community described by Jesus in John 13:34-35, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another,” So, we are a people of passion…fuelled by love, focussed on discipleship and filled with hope, to bring life to the city.
We have a life-changing message for everyone to believe… a people with a growing confidence in the life-changing power of the gospel. The apostle Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). So, we are a people of God’s presence…empowered by the Spirit, engaged in prayer and worship, equipped by the word, to bring life to the city.
We have a vision for everyone to become the people God has created us to be… “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good work, which God has prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10). So, we are a people of purpose…obedient to God’s voice, open to challenge and organised for mission, to bring life to the city.
