The vision for the Baptist Union Churches for this year announced at the Baptist assembly 2016 is this... I wonder how far do we, as a church fulfil this vision?
SEEK TO BE A MOVEMENT OF SPIRIT LED COMMUNITIES:
As those who have encountered the living Christ, to intentionally seek his will and purpose for our local churches and every expression of our shared life
FEEL LIKE ONE TEAM:
Celebrating diversity; valuing, respecting and trusting each other as we work together in partnerships with other churches and Christian Organisations
(I Cor. 12:24b-27)
Being serious about discipleship, willing to take risks, pioneer and move out of the comfort zone of familiar ways of doing things in church life and mission.
With a generosity of spirit, energise and motivate people to be all that God created them to be
SHARE A HUNGER FOR GOD'S COMING KINGDOM:
Nurturing a “holy discontent” that arises from our desire to give practical expression to our vision of God’s purpose for creation – confronting evil, injustice and hypocrisy and challenging worldly attitudes to power, wealth, status and security both within and beyond our Union.
