"Spiritual Foundations for a Vital Church”


The future of the church is in God’s mind and our hands. God’s vision for the church as an agent of the reign of God and God’s desire for all of creation to be redeemed is well attested to in scripture. As followers of Jesus, we are each invited into that journey, knowing that God’s gifts and promises are assurance enough for us to enter into an amazing and meaningful life of faith.
