This vision below is our dream and desire for our Church family. It both inspires and focuses our energies, shaping the goals we want to pursue together under God.
Many of them are what we already are. Some of them are what we are becoming. All of them, we are convinced, are an expression of the vision that God’s Word sets before us.
Our vision is to be a church where God’s voice is heard as the Bible is read and proclaimed clearly. Our vision is that this Word, by the power of the Holy Spirit, would impact us as we grow in the knowledge and love of our King, the Lord Jesus Christ. We dream of a community growing in our confidence is in God’s word, which we trust as our final authority on all matters of faith, even above tradition, reason and experience. (Mark 1:38, 2 Tim 3:16-17, Mark 7:9-13, Mark 13:31)
Our vision is to be a Church where the Gospel (the forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ), is clearly and consistently heard. We dream of being a community where people would know the Lord Jesus is our first love. (Hebrews 12:2)
Our vision is to be a Church where every member is a minister – each using our gifts and talents to serve others and to serve Christ. (1 Cor 12:14-19)
Our vision is to be a Church continually reaching out to a world that desperately needs salvation through Christ. We dream of being known as a welcoming community, committed to the pains of growth. (Acts 2:47, 1 Cor 9:20-23)
Our vision is to be a Church with growing network of small groups where God’s word is taught, where people are loved and where lives are changed. (Acts 2:46-47)
Our vision is that we will be a community of 200 gathering together each week. We dream of a serving community, with targeted ministries to children, youth, young mothers, men, women, and the elderly. We dream of financially supporting two full time ministers (with a view to training a team). Our paid ministers will support our front line ministers in their homes, places of learning and workplaces as they seek to make Christ known. (Acts 2:17)
Our vision is to be a church where new members are cared for and everyone is encouraged to grow and mature as disciples of Christ. (Phil 3:17)
Our vision is to be a Church whose commitment to Christ, each other and our church’s mission is like that of elite athletes to their sport: one that has our priority in time, energy, resources, perseverance and joy. (1 Cor 7:29-31)
