Made new again - Pastor Steve Fleming
SAME BUT DIFFERENT
*our vision has never changed
*our core values have never changed
*our heart for God has never changed
*our methods have changed often “A vision without a cause is little more than a set of personal goals. Conversely a vision attached to a cause is decidedly more than a hit and miss affair” – Brian Houston
The what never changes...build a strong and effective local church
The why never changes...to honour God
NOW AND NEXT
What is God doing now will determine what we do next
Sometimes we get caught up in what will happen next that we don't take time to appreciate what's happening now.
We want to be a church that is attractive to God, and also attractive to people. If we are attractive to God, then we will allow the presence of God in our lives.
Evangelism is living aware of what God is doing and catch up with Him – Dr Gary Nelson, President of Tyndale University in Toronto
WE MUST BE THE CHURCH!
The church – In Ministry
Nurture the community – Love one another as He has loved us – John 13:34-35
The church – In Mission
Expand the community – Loving the world. We have to see the people around us with the love of God.
Carry His heart – Express the compassion of Jesus – Live in the power of the Spirit
God is not calling us to go to church; He is calling us to BE His Church...”The hope of the world” – Craig Groesche
There are people who are important to our destiny
