Our Vision...in more detail
Imagine a place where anyone and everyone is loved and accepted for who they are and will always experience a warm welcome. A place where they find and experience forgiveness, healing, help, hope, friendship and food along with guidance, encouragement, significance and a purpose to live for.
Imagine sharing the Good News of Jesus with every person in Andover and the surrounding areas as well as taking the message of God’s love to other parts of the UK and rest of the world.
Imagine welcoming at least 7,000 members into our church family of people loving, laughing, learning and living together in harmony. That are known for their character, integrity and love. Where that love permeates every relationship and area of the church, its ministry and structure.
Imagine developing people to spiritual maturity through actually doing the stuff that the bible teaches, through Sunday talks, small groups, bible studies, seminars, retreats, and in-depth and practical courses.
Imagine equipping every believer for a significant ministry by helping them discover and use their God given gifts and abilities and to live lives that are “Naturally Supernatural”. Where ongoing spiritual transformation is persued and considered the norm for all believers. Where men and women, boys and girls are valued as individuals regardless of age, gender, race, social background or academic ability and are invested in and encouraged to develop to there full God given potential. Where ordinary people are released to live extraordinary lives for God
Imagine sending out hundreds of short term ministry teams and church plants all over the world.
Imagine one day having a large facility which enables the church to effectively fulfil its vision and purposes, communicating the love and power of God in culturally relevant and doctrinally pure ways. A facility including a worship centre that incorporates and utilises music, all the arts, media technologies to glorify God, making it accessible to everyone, by every modern means possible. A 24/7 prayer centre. A recording & media studio to encourage, develop, record and distribute the new songs and plays etc that God will give us. Purpose designed young people and children’s facilities including their own age appropriate worship areas and a large and varied multi level soft play area on a Noah’s ark theme, with café facilities, so it can be used during the week to connect the community. Temporary sheltered accommodation for victims of abuse and sudden homelessness. A large store house for food, clothing and furniture to meet practical needs with love. Room for counselling, training, functions and for the various ministries of the church. A “Pub/socialising" area and food court, book and resource rooms as well as a recreation area.
Imagine being a significant part of this church's development and being part of something far greater than you. Imagine using your time, energy and money to make a significant and eternal difference to the lives of those you know and those you’ll never meet till we get to Heaven.
Imagine what could happen if the following is true.... and it is!
"God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!” Ephesians 3:2
