We believe that God is calling us to make Drumcree a place where, everyone can feel they belong and are accepted in the church family, where people will come to know and believe in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and through being nurtured and guided, will be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and become disciples of Jesus.'Everyone can feel they belong
and are accepted in the church family'
A place where people, regardless of age, gender or religious background or whether or not they have been involved in church life, can feel that they are welcome and where everyone sees that they have a role to play in creating that sense of welcome'And he took the children in his arms,
put his hands on them and blessed them.'Mark 10:16
A community of people so deeply committed to each other, in prayer, service, forgiveness and practical care that others will be attracted by it and want to discover more about it and be part of it.
Offering a range of worship styles and experiences for people at all stages of the Christian journey.
Caring for the whole person, not just the soul.'People will come to know and believe
in Jesus Christ as their personal saviour'
A place where everyone's journey of faith is respected and valued
Where people are enabled to experience God's love especially by recognising the amazing gift of God's forgiveness, through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus.'Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ
and you will be saved.'Acts 16:17
Where people are given the freedom and encouragement to make a personal commitment to Him.
Where prayer, teaching from the Bible and fellowship is seen as a normal way of helping people grow in faith through the power of the Holy Spirit.Through being nurtured & guided will
be transformed by the power of
the Holy Spirit & become disciples of Jesus''
A place where all will be encouraged to reach their full potential in Christ, discovering and using their gifts to serve others.
'Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...'Matthew 28:19
Where the church will be seen as an army advancing forwards as well as an ark of safety, continually reaching out and moving ahead, ever attempting greater things for God
Where each member and organisation will be so completely focused on God's Great Commission to go into all the world and share God's love, that they will be ready to impact the local community and the wider world, by word and action, in order that God may transform lives and situations.
How Will this happen?
In part it already is! We want to acknowledge God's grace and blessing on Drumcree parish, and the faithful service and witness of many church members down the ages, who have enabled us to do so much.
How does this sound to you? Exciting or perhaps daunting?
We can be sure that if God is calling us to undertake something, he will equip us for the task. But it will only happen if everyone is ready to work together to make it happen.
