What matters most
We are defined by what matters most to us. Our core passions are captured in three words; ENJOY, EMBODY, EXTEND. These words represent the kind of church we want to be and the kind of people we want to become …
A CHURCH WHO Enjoy God
JESUS SAID “I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Through faith in Jesus, we have been invited into the very life of God Himself. Because of Jesus we can now be restored to relationship with God, know God personally & enjoy God in all His goodness & glory.
This means we exist to help people discover the grace of God; it means being people who adore Jesus in worship; it means being people who cherish the presence of the Holy Spirit; and it means being a place where God-stories are told & made - as we open the bible to learn more about God & seek to live out the bible in our lives.
A CHURCH WHO Embody God's GrACE
JESUS SAID “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35). Once we have tasted the undeserved love of God in our own lives, we cannot be the same. Through faith in Jesus we have become part of the family of God, and we desire to live like family.
This means we seek to be a community of genuine love; it means we forgive one another; it means we are honest about our struggles in a context where shame & fear are cast out by love & grace; it means we are generous with our lives; it means we honour all people - rich, poor, weak, strong, young, old - as those who are created by God.
A CHURCH WHO EXTEND THE GOSPEL
JESUS SAID, “As the Father has sent Me, so I am sending you” (John 20:21). We began our church compelled by the vision of seeing the diverse communities of South Cardiff transformed by the message & love of Jesus. Joining Jesus in this mission is the greatest adventure we can give our lives to!
This means we boldly & lovingly share the good news of Jesus with our neighbours, family & friends; it means we seek ways to serve & bless the communities of South Cardiff; it means we are committed to acts of mercy & justice for the poor & marginalised; it means we celebrate diversity & seek peace.
