This week Mark Waterfield and Sam Nair combined to give us the vision of the Church.
They spoke about 4 areas we want to do as a church
Proclaim the Good News
We are ordinary people, with and extraordinary message, the message of Jesus.
We want to have ordinary conversations that get the message of Jesus out there.
We want to equip you to have ordinary conversations about Jesus.
Love & Care for people
Jesus cared for people, (look at all the miracles he performed)
Jesus chose us, imperfect and broken people, to care for others.
People may not be interested in the message until you show them that you care.
We want to show people that we love and care for them.
Expect Miracles Everyday
Jesus told us the kingdom of God is here
Let’s see the Kingdom of God breakout (In our ordinary conversations and when we care for people)
We want to hear about how God has changed your lives.
Equip one another
Gods favour if upon you.
When we have Gods favour we should go and do Gods work
We want to equip you to do God’s work in this world.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
