MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to be the body of Christ locally and universally reaching out to whom and wherever He directs.

We endeavour to build each other up in the most holy faith so that each part of the body reaches its full potential to become effective in establishing His kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. 

OUR STATEMENT OF BELIEF

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe in the unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal Self-Existent “I AM”, who has also revealed Himself

As One being in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in salvation through faith in Christ, who died for our sins, was buried and was raised from among the dead on the third day according to Scriptures, and through His blood we have redemption.

 We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God. We believe in deliverance from sickness by divine healing.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, and the everlasting bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ.

INACTION CAN BE SIN

Senior Living Ministries

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins” – James 4: 17

Have you ever been in a situation and known the right thing to do, but just didn’t do it? If so, you’re not alone! Most of us can probably relate to this scenario.

The Scriptures clearly show us what actions are sin. But how do we know when inaction becomes a sin? Well as believers, we all know the difference between right and wrong. And it’s not enough to just avoid sinning. We are commanded to pursue righteousness and justice. You’ve heard the term “half-truth” before. Half-truths are telling the truth without telling the whole truth. Thus, you can omit certain information without actually lying. But this is precisely what James is talking about. Some people say that a half-truth is actually a half-lie. I think they’re on to something.

There are many times in our lives when we’re faced with difficult situations. But we do not have the luxury of burying our heads in the sand or looking the other way and pretending we don’t see what’s before us. Friend, you and I must do what is right, even when no one is looking, and even when it might cost us something!

PRAYER CHALLENGE

Ask God for courage to do what is right, even when it is difficult.

GOVERNANCE

Yesterday, Jackie continued with the partnership series of teaching, highlighting the importance of governance. This is a word we don’t hear mentioned often, but it is centrally important to building a strong, healthy church which is honouring to God and vital to the growth and development of those within it.

We know that Jesus is passionate about His church and, from the beginning of creation, in the garden of Eden God acknowledged that it was not good for man to be alone. We are fashioned for fellowship and family.

Leadership can appear to carry prestige and status, a raised profile or reputation and even an opportunity to exercise power and control. Many aspire to reach it’s dizzying heights, and yet, in reality, leadership is costly! It’s about building and serving. It’s a position that requires consistent character, credibility and integrity, both in public and in private. Leadership demands responsibility. It’s essential and where it functions well, there is growth, maturity, health and wholeness to be found.

Jackie identified the 6 key aspects of governance:

1/. VISION AND DIRECTION. Passion needs to be harnessed with purpose.

2/. ESTABLISHING IDENTITY. Every church is individual, and good governance enhances its character and flavour.

3/. STEWARDSHIP OF RESOURCES. Making wise decisions with, not just, our finances, but also with our best asset – that’s you!

4/. PASTORAL CARE. Ensuring that people are loved, cared for and cheered on.

5/. ACCOUNTABILITY. Being answerable and responsible to others allows church to function in safety and security. Its a two way street. Partners are accountable to leadership and leadership are accountable to partners.

6/. SETTING A STANDARD. Through example, instruction and teaching, sharing revelation, and exercising correction and discipline, all whilst maintaining an uncompromising personal reputation.

Christ loves us and has entrusted us to play our part in building the church He gave His life for. As we place wise structure at our centre, we can help to ensure that the picture the world sees of the Body of Christ will bring honour and fame to God.

Please pray for our leaders – from the Core Leadership and Management Team, through to our Life Group Leaders and Department Heads. They all need our support and encouragement as they give of their time and effort to see us thrive in local church. Partnering with them, let’s be a blessing and help to make their responsibilities a pleasure and not a burden.

Church, governed effectively is not just a good idea, it’s a God idea!
