Our Vision and Values
Reach people with the good news of Jesus.
‘For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost’ (Luke 19:10).
Jesus came on a rescue mission to save people from sin and give the gift of eternal life. In his life, death and resurrection we have good news to share. We want to share that good news of Jesus with as many people as we can, by showing our faith and love in action and by speaking about Jesus to others.
Grow as Christians in faith, love and service.
‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit’ (John 15:5).
Faith in Jesus brings us into a loving relationship with God our heavenly Father. We want to help one another grow to know and enjoy God more in his word the Bible, to grow in love for Jesus our Saviour, and to walk in step with God the Spirit. As we grow in our faith and love together we want to share God’s love with one another and serve God in the world.
Build a diverse and welcoming family of faith
‘As you come to him, the living Stone … you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house’
(1 Peter 2:4-5)
Faith in Jesus brings us into God’s great kingdom-building project. We want to be a church built on Jesus and his word, and for God’s word to be the ‘family values’ we live by. We want to be a welcoming Christian family that is open to all kinds of people either to grow in faith or begin to explore the Christian faith with us.
Send, sending people and resources for God’s global mission
‘go and make disciples of all nations’ (Matthew 28:19)
Every Christian is sent on a mission. For some that will be in our homes, families, workplaces and local parts of the city. For others that will mean going to other parts of the world in order to live for God and proclaim the good news of Jesus. We want to train and resource men and women to serve God in our city, our country and around our world.
