ST. JOHN'S COLINTON MAINS

Our Goal is Growing

Growing in love for God, each other and our neighbour

Vision

Our vision as a congregation is:

Our Goal is growing - Growing in love for God, each other and our neighbour

  1. Growing in Love for God

Matthew 22:37&38 - “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.”

Our goal is to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We seek to know and understand the truth contained in the Bible and grow in dependence on Him.

  1. Growing in love for each other

John 15:12 - “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you”

Our goal is for our own lives to reflect the character of Christ. We seek to grow in compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience with one another as we unite in our love for Him.

  1. Growing in love for our neighbour

Matthew 22:39 - “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself”

Our goal is not only to ‘grow up’ and ‘grow in’ but also to ‘grow out’. We seek to have an effect on the community in which we live so that the lives of others will be touched by the Good News of the Gospel.

We want every aspect of our church life to reflect our vision statement, recognising that, although we aspire to spiritual growth, only God can produce fruit in our Church life and witness.
