In 2015 we launched the vision for our church. This vision though was not new for the church but rather is a reflection of the heart of our church in its ministry over 50 years. Our vision is birthed from our church’s culture and our character. Our vision is who we are.
“Putting things right on earth as it is in heaven”
These words come from who we have always been as a church. These words also come from the theme that runs the entirety of the Bible about God's nature and his intention for the world and these words come direcly from Jesus and God the Father themselves:
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“Our Father in Heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. - Jesus
Matthew 6:9-10 (NIV)
“I’m God, and I act in loyal love. I do what’s right and set things right and fair, and delight in those who do the same things. These are my trademarks.”
Jeremiah 9:23-24 (‘The Message’ paraphrase)
Our church’s vision is about God’s Kingdom (God’s order) coming to people’s lives and the entire world. When God’s Kingdom comes things will be put right as God always intended them to be, and just as they are already in heaven. Our church desires and intends for this to be the experience of the people in our church, in our community and our world.
