Our Purpose, Vision, Mission & Values
Our Biblical Purpose
As a church our Biblical purpose is to honour God, love others sacrificially and make disciples as Jesus commanded us. We will share the salvation message with those who have not received it. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we will teach and obey all things. We will seek harmony in our leadership and in all our relationships by committing ourselves prayerfully to this common purpose.
To see the people at Generations obviously growing in spiritual maturity and to see our community grow as the Spirit brings new people to faith in Christ.
(the main things we do to accomplish our vision and purpose)
We will conduct our Sunday morning services in such a way that they will have a primary focus on worship, prayer and teaching and a secondary focus on fellowship and outreach.
We will commit to praying for all things through Jesus Christ. Prayer is our faithful response as we rely on the supernatural power of God.
We will start small groups for the purpose of advancing our mission as we have leaders to lead them.
We will reach out in word and deed to people in our natural spheres of relationship as well as to those who live in proximity to our church facility.
(how we choose to serve)
We value the diversity and beauty that young and old bring to our congregation.
We value music that is contemporary and a worship style that is flexible and engaging. We will celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month.
We value healthy relationships that are undergirded by truth, love, accountability, forgiveness and acceptance.
We value team leadership. Our pastor will be the team leader of the elders but will work together with them as peers in providing leadership for our congregation. This leadership team in turn will appoint others as ministry leaders who will also gather team members with whom they will serve as peers. The leadership team will engage the congregation in making major decisions or changes and will be accountable to them on financial matters and in fulfilling the mission and vision of the church.
Our Rural Base
We value the rural location of our church building. We are committed to living out our mission within the rural community surrounding us including the village of Wellesley.
Men & Women in Ministry
We value the equality of men and women in all areas of church ministry.
