Why We Exist As Church

Our commissioning scripture verse is taken from Matthew 28v19 which is to 'make disciples of all nations'. Disciples are like their master so:

  • We exist to make ordinary people “become like Jesus”
  • We address the whole person and not just a part of them
  • We make disciples, not church members
  • We empower people to walk in their spiritual gifts, abilities and talents

Other scripture verses that we draw on as part of our commission are:

  • Acts 4 - when they saw the courage of Peter and John and realised they were unschooled ordinary
  • Acts 13 - the believers were first called Christians in Antioch
  • 1 Corinthians 11v1 - Follow me as I follow Christ

 
How We Do This (Uniqueness)

Our accomplishment of the mandate is through the process of discipleship which consists of:

  • 10 Week Discovery Program
  • Journey Group Meetings
  • One 2 One Meetings
  • Study through the Bible
  • Openness to ask questions

 
What We Aim To Produce

  • Mature believers – Usable by GOD to repeat the above process of “Why We Exist As Church” (Ephesians 4:11-13)

Other scripture verses:

  • Isaiah 9 - to us a Son is given
  • Acts 9 - Jesus called Ananias
  • Mark 4 - ...that they might be with Him that He may send them out
