At the church meeting in October 2018 Ed shared the new vision “strapline” of Being Transformed Together which then was identified by 4 clear values:
REST as the launchpad for life (Matthew 11:28). We want to develop a different rhythm, a rhythm of rest, which in turn is the launchpad for life.
WELCOME to all just as they are (Luke 14:15-24). We want to offer a welcome to all just as they are, as God welcomes us.
GENEROSITY demonstrating the love of God (2 Corinthians 9:6-8). We want to be a community of people with generosity at our core, demonstrating the love of God’s love through our lives.
COURAGE ~ to follow Jesus wherever He leads (Romans 1:16). We know that Jesus calls us to an adventure that is greater than anything we could ever imagine, but God will give us the courage if we’re prepared to follow Jesus wherever He leads.
Over the next few weeks and months we intend to explore this in more detail, identifying with clear logo’s and making sure there is a simple clarity as we share this with our wider community in and around Battle Baptist Church.
