A healthy church is a balanced church and we have in recent days sought to re-discover the purposes of Church so we know what is our business and be able to check how is our business. Two passages of scripture inform what our business is.
- ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (Worship)This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Service) All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
- go and make disciples of all nations (Evangelism) baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Fellowship) and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Discipleship) (Matthew 28:19-20)
We believe a balanced Church will be a healthy Church.
