What is God’s vision for our church? After several months of exploring this question we are ready to move ahead with clarity and purpose. In this series we will unpack our vision: “to be a church that is devoted to lifelong growth, healthy relationships, warm hospitality, walking with the wounded and introducing people to Jesus.” In each message we’ll explore the biblical basis for this vision statement and we’ll invite people to consider what this means for them and for our church community as we pursue God’s future together.
This week we began by exploring lifelong growth.
We are each committed to lifelong growth with Jesus, becoming more and more like him in every area of our lives. This ongoing discipleship is important in our everyday lives and when we gather as a church. It will be evident through increasing dependence on God, deepening confidence in him throughout life’s circumstances, growing knowledge of the Bible and serving sacrificially. We recognise that this is God’s work in us, and we are responsible to follow Jesus and respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
