Living like Jesus means
- Knowing God loves us is the foundation of our relationship with him.
- We rely on the Holy Spirit who empowers us (Luke 4:1-14).
- We are prompted in various ways by the Holy Spirit in how we live.
Sharing him with others
- We do this in word and deed.
- Our primary desire is to introduce people to Jesus and help them find their place in our varied church family.
As we seek first the kingdom of God
- The kingdom of God is our focus.
- The church is a resource centre for advancing the kingdom of God and not an end in itself.
- We will teach the kingdom values of love, justice, forgiveness, inclusion and humility.
By the grace of God and relying on the Holy Spirit we will…
- Love generously.
- Act justly.
- Forgive swiftly.
- Include selflessly.
- Practice humility.
Values are core beliefs that characterise the attitude with which we will implement our mission statement.
- The kingdom of God can be summarised in Scripture under the following values: Justice, forgiveness, inclusion, love and humility.
- When somebody meets a person from BGBC we’d love them to experience these values.
