Living Out Our Vision
As a church our vision is to see:
“Life Transformed Through Jesus”
We summarise our approach to this in three simple words – Belong, Believe, Become.
Belong: Come as you are
There are no perfect people at Welcome Church! We are all recipients of the love, acceptance and inclusion offered by Jesus Christ, who makes us friends of God and friends with each other. Because of Him we can come with our questions, doubts and struggles. We can belong together, experiencing God’s grace in action. We are people of grace.
Believe: Know how loved you are
As we journey together, we seek to know God as our loving Father, His son Jesus as our friend and saviour and the Holy Spirit’s life and power within us. We believe Jesus has the answers to this world’s challenges, so we are learning what it means to trust and to follow him. We are people of faith.
Become: Become who you were created to be
We believe that God has a purpose for every one of us, and that He created us all with a unique identity. As we follow Jesus we want to find God’s purpose for our lives and learn about the identity he has for us. We want to become who God created us to be and to live that out. We are people of identity.
Together: Find your place
Together we are God’s church and we each have a part to play. Jesus has restored us to a relationship with God as our loving Father and he wants us to have good relationships with one another as well. Together we seek to show the love of Jesus to everyone, both those who are part of the church, and those who are not. We are people of community.
