It’s got to be real: we go after true relationship
We want to be people who love God with our whole hearts: who are connected in a real, vital relationship with Him 24/7.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
Psalm 27 v 4
We live to bring heaven to earth
We have an apostolic/prophetic approach to church, where we look into heaven and call it down to earth, to build His Kingdom.
Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”
We worship our guts out
He’s so worth it: we pour ourselves out in praise and worship, where we aim to hold nothing back. We want to create an environment where the river of the Holy Spirit flows, and people encounter His presence.
I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.
2 Samuel 24.24
We pursue prayer and holiness
We’re contending for a Great Awakening; a move of God where He pours out his glory in revival power that sweeps millions into his kingdom.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chron 7.14
We’re all about equipping, training & releasing
This is not a one-man band. We want to see every individual fully released into their callings and gifting.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
1 Cor 12.7
We love the prophetic
We eagerly pursue prophecy as a way to see the gold in people and call it out. We love to take the spiritual gifts out on the road and prophesy over those who don’t know God yet.
Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.
1 Cor 14.1
We believe in healing of the heart
We want to really know God and do life His way; to do that we need our hearts and minds healed and renewed.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Mission, mercy and marvellous things like that
An essential part of expressing the life of Jesus in us, is to love on the poor, the homeless and the hopeless. There’s no shortage of people for us to love on in Bournemouth and around the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Matthew 25 v 35-36
We’re all in this together: we love investing in all age groups, especially our amazingly anointed Kids and Youth.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Tim 4.12
Putting it out there (evangelism)
We want to reveal the King by demonstrating His life and his kingdom outside the walls of the church in our every day lives - with friends and strangers.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
