Vision and Values

Vision

We desire to join in with what God is doing globally to bring all peoples, and nations, to a knowledge of Him, and to give Him the glory that is due to Him, and His name. Accordingly, we, as a local church in the north- eastern area of York, United Kingdom, desire to preach and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.

Values

We have come to understand that we value GOD!

G-  generosity: an appropriate response to God the Father sending His only son Jesus to live, and die for us on the cross, and raising Him to life by the power of God the Holy Spirit, is to be generous ourselves to Him and His mission in the world. We value being generous with our lives, time, and money.

O-  outreach: God is a sending God. Accordingly, as we are transformed by God’s power at work in us who believe, we value reaching out to others who have yet to make a decision about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and further, reaching out to those who need love, comfort, encouragement, and friendship.

D- development: we value working on being transformed from the inside out by the grace and love of God, through the work of His Holy Spirit in our lives. Accordingly we prioritise meeting in homes and other contexts for times of discipleship and encouragement, and building friendships amongst the churches we relate to across the United Kingdom, and locally in York.
