Our values

Statement of Values for St Peter’s Shipley

 

Worship

We believe that we are to cultivate a life of prayer and worship ‘in spirit and in truth’ and to experience intimacy with God.

Our corporate worship is to be anchored in God’s Word and inspired by the Holy Spirit.

 

Nurture

All our teaching will be based in the Bible because we believe it is the inspired Word of God.

We seek to train and equip church members to discover and use their gifts in Christian service and in building up the church.

Children and young people will be nurtured amongst us as the church of today.

 

Fellowship

We encourage loving, caring mutual respect for all through small groups and various forms of worship.

We will do everything we can to make sure everyone can take a full and equal part in our church life, regardless of any particular needs.

We believe God is willing to use any group of people who will together seek and call upon him in prayer.

 

Mission

We believe that God commands and equips us to share the Gospel in word and action.

We want to be the local church for local people. We will take the Gospel out to people around us in whatever ways they will best see, hear and understand.

We believe that we are to get involved and take initiatives in, worldwide mission which transforms lives, through our money, prayers and effort.

 

Service

We as the body of Christ will serve one another and the local community, both as individuals, and through making our premises available whenever possible to local people and organisations.

 

Generosity

We promote generosity which arises out of a desire to be like Jesus in the ways we use our time and possessions, and in which we offer hospitality and interest in others.
