This is our dream, our hearts cry, to become...
GOD'S KIND OF CHURCH!
 
 
THE DREAM

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where people don’t just receive grace, but practise it.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where those who come in feeling condemned, get accepted; of a church where

the fallen are restored, where the hurting are healed, and the lost are saved.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the love of God in people’s hearts is so strong that gossip & backbiting is rejected;

and people are talked up and not talked down, and where unity is more important

than winning an argument.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where everyone counts; where everyone is appreciated; where everyone is valued - not because of who they are down here, but because of who they are up there.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where people are welcomed regardless of what they have done;

where prodigals are received with open arms, and not with religious judgementalism.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where Christ is loved, honoured and worshipped in spirit and in truth; where the only bystanders in times of worship are those who don’t yet know the Lord.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where community is not considered in rows of people,

but in selfless sacrifice, of laying down lives for each other.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the young can function in leadership and not just be nice for the elderly to look at,

but where young people in early age sense a destiny,

and become part of the church as much as anyone else.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the leaders serve with humility, and not because of ego, status or position.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where people who are single, divorced, widowed or orphaned, feel secure and

as much a part of the family as anybody else.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the people come to the meetings not when it suits them, but when it suits Him.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the weight of the work doesn’t rest on a few, but where everybody

shares the load and plays their part in reaching the world.

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where those who are called to go, go, and those who are called to stay,

support them in their going.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where everybody considers the other better than themselves.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where everything that is done is done with passion & excellence,

and where lost souls are our top priority.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where women are allowed to reach their full potential in Christ,

and not be held back simply because of their gender.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the Holy Spirit gets excited about being present,

and is free to do whatever he wants to do.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where people come to Christ every week, and needs are met by the Risen Lord!

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where every member gets excited with the thrill and the buzz of destiny,

and gives 100% to the will of God while they still have breath in their body.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the bible is preached and loved and obeyed,

and where the sound of our Amen’s cannot any longer be restrained.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where the first priority of the people is not what they can get,

but what can they give, and where love is not merely with words, but with deeds.

 

WE HAVE A DREAM OF A CHURCH

where even our enemies have to respect us and admire us.

  

WE HAVE A DREAM OF BEING GOD’S KIND OF CHURCH …

 

 

Is it possible…  is it possible on this planet to have a church like that?

 

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
