The church’s overall vision is: Rooted in Christ,Growing in Love(Ephesians 3:17)
We believe this vision will be outworked by being a church that is both: Deep and Wide.
We recognise that, as a church, we need to go deeper into; understanding God’s Word (the Bible), the Holy Spirit and the love of Jesus. We desire to receive new gifts of the Spirit, to grow in these giftings and to support and enable others to do the same.
We adopt a wide approach as a church by reaching out into the community and beyond, expressing the love of God in a variety of ways. Increasingly, we want to be a church that;
proclaims good news to the poor, binds up the broken-hearted, proclaims freedom to the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, proclaims the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, comfort for all who mourn and provide for those who grieve in Zion.
(based on Isaiah 61:1-3)
An important part of outworking our vision is for us to take our place in the wider body of Christ in: Kingswood, Bristol, the U.K., and the world!
