Mission & Vision

 

MISSION  STATEMENT

To  glorify God and to affirm the Lordship of Jesus Christ and to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom by obeying the Great Commission and to seek to live out the Great Commandment in the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

VISION  STATEMENT

We believe that God wants the Diocese to work in unity, characterised by:

1.      Congregational worship that is wholehearted, enriching and meaningful celebration.

2.      Prayerful dependence on God.

3.      Effective biblical preaching and teaching.

4.      Exercise of the gifts of the Holy Spirit by all members for the edification of the whole body of Christ and for the extension of the Kingdom of God.

5.      Discipleship for all members through small groups in the community.

6.      Members both clergy and laity equipped for effective ministry of evangelism and social concerns.

So that the Church will be a church in whose worship there is the joy of the Spirit, in whose preaching there is the authority of the Spirit, in whose service, the gifts of the Spirit are in full use and in whose fellowship there is the love of God.
