A church that: Grasps hold of the real God, Grows real people in faith, Gives real truth and hope
A church that grasps hold of the real God – is Worship in all of life
[Jeremiah 10:10a: But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King…]
- The one true God is infinite and all powerful, and this is who we worship and follow, and whom is the centre of all we do.
- Worship is meaningful and an encounter, in the freedom and ministry of the Holy Spirit.
- God’s guidance and direction is sought through prayer.
- The living Word of God (The Bible) enables us to hear, understand, experience and obey the reality of God.
A church that grows real people in faith – is discipleship
[Ephesians 4:12: To prepare God’s people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.]
When we receive the real Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, we will grow in maturity and Christ-likeness by committing to discipleship and growth through teaching, small groups, and the development of leaders.
A church that gives real truth and hope- is mission and outreach.[Luke 4: 18 The Spirit of Lord is on me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed….]
Once we have come into personal relationship with the real God, He then desires and commissions us to share His love with others who don’t yet know and follow Him. We have the gospel to give out, in word, sign and deed as we build authentic relationships with those in our local communities and through global mission.
Helping people to know Jesus and follow Him.

This Sunday we look at forgiveness, 10am kick-off. The Bible says, “Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” (Heb 9:22b) which alerts us to its cost in terms of sacrifice – but also its importance. In Matthew 18, Peter was prepared to go to 7 times […]
