A Place Where God Dwells
When we talk about the church, we need to emphasise that we are talking about the people that are the body of the church and not the building that we meet in. We are being uilt together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit (Ephesians 2:22) God is enthroned on the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3) and dwells in us (1 Corinthians 3:16) and it is the people of this church that we see being the place where God dwells to the extent that as others meet with us, wherever we may meet, they will know God's presence. That simply gets magnified as we gather together for worship as an assembly of people in whom God dwells and as a result of that we should see great things happening including salvation, healing, restoration and an outpouring of God's holy spirit.
A Resource Centre
As a church we have a great history of pioneering in mission, ministry & business. We long to see that spirit of equipping and sending people out to make a difference in the world they are called to continue to increase. That we will be able to provide teaching, prayer, practical skills and resources to enable and release a whole new generation of pioneers and entrepreneurs over the coming years. Just as God commissioned Joshua (Joshua 1:2-9) we want to see the land occupied for God by God's people.
A Heart for Community
Starting where we are with the people that God has put around us we recognise that building relationship with others is a long term commitment. God's promise to Abraham was that his descendants would bless the whole earth (Genesis 22:18) and we now get to share in that (Galatians 3:29). That was no overnight project that God assigned but we are committed for the long term to fulfilling one of God's earliest commissions for His people.
