Vision

Our vision guides everything we do here at St Philip's. Through lots of prayer and collaboration, this is the direction we feel God is taking us in over the next few years. Please take the time to read through it, and consider ways in which you can support the living out of this vision:

As St Philip's family, we are called to

 

Connect with Jesus

Connect with each other, and

Connect with our community

 

So that God's kingdom grows.

Connecting with God, Father Son and Holy Spirit - As revealed in the Bible

 

Being intentional about connecting with God: revealed to us in Jesus. We do this as individuals and as a family. We

acknowledge that our connection with God can only happen because of His grace. This aim means that we are

devoted to scripture and rooted in prayer. We connect with God through worship and we listen attentively to Him,

through His Word and by His Spirit. We welcome Holy Spirit to ignite us with passion and move amongst us and we

want to be filled with His fruit and operate in His gifts. We have a relationship with Jesus and are committed to

obediently following Him in lifelong discipleship.

Connecting with each other

We are family and with that comes joys and sorrows. We stand alongside one another and build each other up. We

choose to have intentional relationships with each other, through our small groups and ministries. We aim to

sharpen each other ‘as iron sharpens iron’ and we care for each other holding each other in prayer.

Connecting with our community

We love our community, serve our community and go into our community. We reach our community with the Good

News and introduce them to Jesus. We create a family to which our community can belong. We bring hope into our

community.
