Our Vision

We are all about Jesus.

This is not just talk. We want everything we do to point towards our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. We want to live like him, we want our lives to be shaped by what he did for us and we want everything we do to give him praise.

We have tried to sum up our vision of Christ-like living in 8 words.

LIVE Living Like Jesus

Living distinctive lives in the world

“You are like light for the whole world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bowl; instead it is put on the lampstand, where it gives light for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

PRAY Faithful in Prayer

Depending on God for everything

“Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

TELL Gossipping Good News

Sharing our hope in Jesus with everyone we can

“Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you, but do it with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15-16)

HELP Helping the Needy

Showing God’s compassion in our actions

“What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world.” (James 1:27)

LEARN Learning and Growing

Deepening our knowledge and understanding of God’s word

“Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.” (Romans 12:2)

SHARE Sharing Generously

Holding our resources lightly as stewards of God’s gifts

“You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly. And God is able to give you more than you need, so that you will always have all you need for yourselves and more than enough for every good cause.” (2 Corinthians 9:7-8)

PRAISE Praising God

Whole lives of authentic worship

“Speak to one another with the words of psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing hymns and psalms to the Lord with praise in your hearts. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, always give thanks for everything to God the Father.” (Ephesians 5:19-20)

LOVE Committed to Each Other

Being a Christian family

“Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more, since you see that the Day of the Lord is coming nearer.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
