Reach people. Influence culture. Build future.
Our Mission is to reach people for Christ and influence culture by building a large church in Norwich, Ipswich and Bratislava; to disciple and empower people in every area of life and shape the future of our city and beyond.
The Church we see:
The church we see is no ordinary church – but as we partner with God we see an astonishing and remarkable church with its highest priority to worship God and enjoy him forever!
The church we see is a significant church of influence. It is a large church with a passionate heart for God, the city and the nation.
We see a dynamic church committed as people who are marked by fervour, productivity and creative energy in bringing people to Jesus.
We see a church that is passionate, non-compromising, spirit filled, and provides our generation with a source of meaningful direction that disciples them and empowers them to live authentic lives in Jesus Christ.
The church we see is an accessible, up to date church that is naturally supernatural and super- naturally natural, a contemporary church that is committed to relevancy and being a people who are positive, upbeat, and excited about a relationship with God.
The church we see impacts our city and beyond with the belief that what grows out of our community of faith will have prophetic implications in our own city and around the world for this generation and the next.
We see a church so dependent on Jesus that nothing will stop us nor stand against us, a people loving one another, unified, praying together and full of God’s Spirit.
The church we see is a church of renowned character and integrity a place where friendships are important and last for decades, marriages that last “until death us do part” and a love for God that goes straight on into eternity!
We see a church whose head is Jesus; whose help is the Holy Spirit and whose focus is the great commission.
The church we see could very well be our church Proclaimers.
Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired, infallible, accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues, which is the initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives that is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the com- munity in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We have a Board of Directors with the Senior Minister as the chairman along with a Treasurer and Secretary and at least one other member.
