To be a diverse and multi-ethnic fellowship of God’s people, growing in love and membership, impacting our community and the world with the gospel and love of Jesus Christ.
To present every person in our community mature in Christ.
To make this happen we give priority to:
Bringing people to Jesus
Growing people as Jesus’ disciples
Expressing our love for Jesus and for one another
Training people as his servants
Supporting others in the same mission
At St Philip’s we care about:
Being Evangelical in Theology – Grace alone, Bible alone, Christ alone, Faith alone.
Being multi-ethnic/international by being culturally relevant and adapting to the changing culture of our area.
Unity in the gospel and our mission while having diversity in ministry. We are one church but multiple congregations/fellowships each with its own distinctive style/culture.
Growth Groups. These growth groups (Bible study groups) lie at the centre of our ministry.
Love which leads to service. We want to be known for a love that leads to people growing in Christ and as servants to others.
Children. Growth in Christ starts from childhood. Therefore we have a special focus on growing good, effective ministry to children.
Training & sending people into ministry – encouraging everyone to be a servant.
Having an evangelistic focus. We want to grow in numbers to see more people in the kingdom.
