To see people come to the knowledge of the Lord and experience His sustaining power in their lives. (Habakkuk 2:14).
To bring the news of Jesus Christ to the multi-cultural and multi-aged community for the purpose that all people may be saved and added to the body of Christ (1 Timothy 2:4).
To edify the body of Christ with the Word of God that they may learn how to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Timothy 2:15).
To facilitate free worship to God through word, song, and personal expression (Psalm 95:6).
Our mission is to implement the 7 W’s as set out in Acts 2:41-47:
The 7 W’s are as follows: –
They are presented in this order for the following reason: –
Firstly, we are WITNESSES; it is our role as a Christian; a believer in God to live a life that is representative of Christ.
Our good works and lifestyle should serve as a precursor to us sharing the message of Christ so that our message may be received well.
(1 Corinthians 9:27).
After we have WITNESSED, we WELCOME the new believers into the body of Christ and our family at ACTS Christian Church (The Ministry of the Word).
Here we will nurture them with the WORD. The WORD serves to build up the body of believers and inform non-believers of the saving power of Jesus Christ.
When the WORD has been heard we can now provide WELFARE.
We have to care for our membership holistically which includes spiritual counsel and practical help e.g. financially, babysitting, signposting to other services.
When the membership is looked after we can teach them how to engage in WARFARE both spiritually and practically by teaching them to pray and also teaching them how to survive in a society where they may face challenges i.e. immigration, housing, schooling and further education.
Free people will then be able to WORSHIP the Lord honestly and freely and as the relationship with each other is built up and established we will be free to express ourselves in WORSHIP and praise to God together.
As we WORSHIP the Lord will show us WONDERS that will take us back to WITNESS.
When the WONDERS are seen they will serve as a WITNESS and the cycle begins again with new believers.
The ‘old’ believers will be established and will help the new believers walk through the 7 W’s.
