- Draw people to the point of inclusion in our community
- Establish security within our community
- Will motivate and influence action in and by our community
- Influence attention, perception, interpretation and the planning of individual group action within our community.
JESUS’ PRIORITY GETS ALL OUR ATTENTION
Jesus’ instructions are really very simple: make disciples who make disciples. If we get that right, everything else follows. All that we do unapologetically serves that goal.
LIVING UNASHAMED AND JOYFUL
We love what Jesus has accomplished for us and can’t wait to tell others the good news that there is freedom for all who call on His name. This is an expression of the joy we have because of our salvation and our relationship with Jesus, and not a duty to perform.
UNASHAMED ABOUT THE PRESENCE OF GOD
We place high importance on being a community that eagerly encounters God through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and regular encounters with Him, study of the Bible, prayer and worship.
SEEKING TO BE SUPERNATURALLY NATURAL
Jesus’ kingdom is one of power and the miraculous. When it comes to seeing the sick healed, the broken restored and addicts set free, we believe the pursuit of God’s kingdom power is absolute. There is much more of God’s kingdom we have yet to see.
INCLUSION AND EQUALITY ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE
We are a church that lives by, practices, communicates, and upholds the grace of God in all situations and on all occasions. The phrase no condemnation is not just a theological statement but a living reality in all we do without exception.
HERE FOR ONE ANOTHER’S SUCCESS
Our passion is to see people fulfil their potential. We will look to release people to be all that God has made them to be.
WE ARE ONE
Our pursuit of reflecting God’s heart for diversity is non-negotiable. We will intentionally celebrate our diversity of backgrounds, ages, races and social status and gender
ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY
The adventure God has called us into requires huge resources of people, time and money. We will intentionally create opportunities to grow in being open-hearted, open-handed and generous with our money.
RUNNING WITH FRIENDS
We learned from our fore-fathers that you can do more together than you can apart. We partner with friends from across the UK and around the globe in the Regions Beyond family in order to achieve more.
HOLDING THINGS LIGHTLY
Because we are passionate about going after those who are far away from God, we will continually look to create space for growth and prepare ourselves in readiness for what God is doing.
OUT OF OUR COMFORT ZONE
We seek to live beyond our own comfort for the purpose of reaching others regardless of economic status, age, gender, or ethnicity so they too will benefit through God’s grace in Jesus Christ.
WE WANT TO HELP YOU GET ON BOARD
We value our connection to one another but tend to talk more about joining us on our adventure. We encourage everyone to a commitment to the journey with us into all that God has planned for our good and His glory.
