A healthy, safe and functioning local church is the fullest expression of the kingdom of God on earth. While the Church and the Kingdom are not to be equated, the Church CAN live up to its calling and fullest potential IF it lives in and by the Holy Spirit.
In this sermon, our pastor, Ian Forest-Jones, describes for us how it was Sunday night and the disciples of Jesus Christ had met together. But there was one of the disciples who was not there. And what a service he missed!
We believe that the Church was instituted by Jesus Christ to be the people of God and is made up of all true believers regardless of race, gender, age or station in life; the Church visible is the local congregation of believers.
