All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.Matthew 28:18-20
We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ. A disciple is someone who is learning Jesus in repentance and faith. Discipleship happens when someone takes a step closer to Jesus. We all have a step to take!
Everyone Growing And Leading Others Toward Maturity In Christ
We envision a church where every single person is actively growing in their relationship with Jesus, while at the same time walking with those around us to take a step closer to Jesus.
Disciples are made through the persevering proclamation of the word of God by
the people of God in prayerful dependence on the Spirit of God.
We grow and help others grow through the Four P’s:
of the Word of God — every-believer ministry of the Word.
dependence upon the Spirit of God to change hearts.
are God’s co-workers.
step by step as change happens over time through God’s
Word, His Spirit and His people.
We acknowledge that God is the One who makes disciples. He does it in and through us as we help those around us, wherever they are, to take a “step to the right”, toward Christ and His kingdom, by engaging those “far away,” evangelising those “near,” establishing those who are “new” in the faith, and equipping those who are established.
We’ve found the below image a helpful tool to visualise the mission, vision and strategy of our church. You’ll often hear us say “take a step to the right” as we travel closer to Jesus together.
