Our vision as a church is to grow and bless the nations. We follow a model of discipleship which is known as the G12 vision which has its foundations in Genesis 12. God's promises started with the patriarch Abraham, who is described as our father in the faith. Abraham had faith and a great vision.

We have a vision for great growth
Abram was just one man but God made a covenant first to bless him and then to bless unlimited numbers of people through him. God gave Abram a vision of ever-increasing growth and multitudes of people, and so he became Abraham.
We have a vision for generational blessing in families
God’s vision started with Abraham but it continued through his son Isaac, grandson Jacob and 12 great grandsons; Joseph and his brothers. God’s business is a family business. The church is to be like a family and your family members are to be your first priority and your first disciples in ministry.
A great nation
We have a vision of a great church
The vision here is not just to multiply people but ‘form’ a people. From one individual came a family, from a family came tribes, from tribes came nations. As Christians we are what the apostle Peter called ‘one holy nation’; the church of Jesus Christ, both locally and globally. We have a vision to belong to, and build, a strong and fruitful Christ-centred community.
We have a vision of bringing great change to the world
Abraham was promised far more than personal and family blessing. He was also to be a source of blessing ‘to all the families of the earth.’ So our vision is not just for the blessing and multiplication of individuals; it not just a vision for family and church; it is also a vision to see God’s kingdom come in all areas of life and in all nations.
