Building A Kingdom Culture


John 18:36

36Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”

TAKING A FRESH LOOK AT CHURCH…BUILDING A KINGDOM CULTURE

“The reality is that every group or organisation has a culture. Unless you define it, it will be defined for you. It is critical to define your culture.” Simon Holley. “Sustainable Power.”

A mission is what the church does. A culture is who the church is. Just as we are not human “doings” but human beings, so the church is not it’s mission.

We have a mission statement. But the challenge is to deliberately – and in an ongoing way – work at becoming the kind of people we envision. Our vision it to be a faith community that is: 1. genuinely devoted to God. 2. radically loving 3. continually growing 4. willingly serving 5. actively proclaiming the good news of Jesus.
