A vision is something that you see clearly, but do not yet possess. It is something that you value so highly, that you work hard in order to see it become a reality. Your vision defines what you spend your time on, what you spend your money on, how you organise yourself, what upsets you and what excites you! Our vision is not so much what we want to do, but something we feel called to be. Our vision is to be:
A WORSHIPPING CHURCH
Where God is encountered in worship that is marked by awe and reverence yet which is full of joy and thanksgiving.
A PRAYING CHURCH
Where it is recognised that prayer is both our highest privilege and our most necessary responsibility.
A SPIRIT-FILLED CHURCH
Which seeks to be growing in the fruit of the Spirit, operating in the gifts of the Spirit and listening to the voice of the Spirit.
A BIBLICAL CHURCH
Where the word of God defines all that we do and where Bible teaching is practical and relevant.
A CARING CHURCH
That understands itself as being God’s family in which all barriers of age, gender, race and social class are broken down and where members are willing to lay down their lives for one another.
AN EVANGELISING CHURCH
Which recognises the commission of ALL of God’s people to be his witnesses and which expects to grow in numbers as more people commit their lives to Jesus Christ.
A MISSION-MINDED CHURCH
Which obeys the great commission to go into ALL the world to share God’s love and draw people to follow Jesus Christ.
A RESOURCE CHURCH
Which recognises the ‘Universal Church’ and seeks to co-operate with other Christian churches and groupings in order to see the local community and the wider world reached with the love of God.
