Our Vision & Purpose
Our vision is to be a family that builds families which model the love of god our father, the life of jesus and the liberty of the holy spirit to our world. Isaiah 58:11-12 is the verse upon which this church was planted and it tells us exactly what our purpose is. To refresh, rebuild & restore are the three words that summarise our purpose.
The Bible says that where there is no vision the people perish and we also believe that where there is no purpose, people stagnate. Our vision is a statement of our “Identity”. It represents both “who” we are, and all that we are meant “to be”. Our purpose defines our “Assignment”. It’s a reminder of “what” we are meant to “do”. We have learned to embrace who we are as a family, for it is our God-given identity and is integral to the vision of this body. We wholeheartedly accept how we function for it is our God-given assignment and it’s what keeps us motivated and driven.
The vision & purpose of this church is not limited to “family” as we might commonly and inadequately define it. It’s the call to every man, woman and child to grow up to be a partaker in advancing the kingdom of God on the Earth. The instructions in Genesis 1 were absolutely clear. “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, subdue it”. This is not a one-man job. It’s a job for all “mankind”. Another translation of this verse says, “Prosper, reproduce, fill the earth, take charge”. This serves as a reminder to us that we aren’t here just to take part, but that God put us here to “take charge”. If you dare to look close enough into the conversation between the “Father” and His first earthly “Son”, you’ll find the blueprint for God’s kingdom here on earth through the gift of “family”. I’m glad that this family has discovered it and we open the doors of our hearts and of Eden Springs Church to all comers, to be a part of this family as we seek to unite with the prayer of Jesus and establish the kingdom of our Father here ‘on earth as it is in heaven’.
