ABIDING IN JESUS -

AS DISCIPLE-MAKING DISCIPLES


Because we have received and experienced God’s great love, and hear his word to us, we want to share the real life we have in Jesus Christ with others.


By teaching ourselves and others to obey all that Jesus has commanded us, and loving one another as he has loved us, we aim to build one another up into disciple-making disciples of Jesus Christ. To this end we are committed to encouraging and equipping one another for a life pleasing to our heavenly Father.


Our aim is to communicate the love of Christ in the common language and culture of our time so that we are understandable and relevant.


As well as promoting local activities held throughout the year at St Andrew’s Kinson, this page will include articles written to encourage us to grow and develop as disciple-making disciples.

The essence of belonging

I think it's safe to say that there will be times where our sense of belonging is challenged as members of the church.


Here at St Andrew's Kinson, we hope and pray all members and visitors will find a place of welcome and belonging - we hope this article helps to inform but also challenge us as to what we as individuals bring to the table...

You may find the audio cuts off just at the end...


if so, here's the last paragraph...


We can only experience what it is like to really be a member of a body when we are active as contributing members of that body. We can only experience the ‘community’ of Christ when we put into practice the only thing that truly matters in our fellowship: faith in Jesus Christ that is active in love.
