The Threat To God's Mission
The greatest threat to God’s mission is actually our hearts propensity to replace Him with an idol. Author Miroslav Volf writes that when we forget God’s grace to us, ‘Our hearts become factories of idols in which we fashion and refashion God to fit our needs and desires.’
Vision Sunday October 2019
On Vision Sunday 27th October 2019 we want to share with you our 2020 ministry initiatives and plans, and what we hope to see God do for us as a church. We want you to come together for the gospel at GracePoint in praise for the God who has saved and gathered us, in prayerful dependence on the God who brings growth, and in partnership together serving the God who sends us to bring the gospel to the nations and for the generations.
Studies in 1 Peter 2019
1 Peter has much to say to a Christian community feeling the weight of living as outsiders, exiles and strangers in culture and society. The church as the people of God have and will always be a counter-cultural community, and historically have always lived on the margins of society and culture. How do we navigate life as God's people in a culture that's hostile to the Christian faith and way of life? How do we respond when we're unfairly treated as God's people?
An Unchanging Mission & Vision
Over the last 19 years at GracePoint we’ve had many challenges and changes. And the challenges and changes we've experienced as a church isn’t that unusual given that we’ve grown from a church of 30 people to four congregations across GracePoint. However there are some things that will remain unchanged as we move forward. We've always been committed to growing God's people to reach God's word for God's glory. And it's a mission grounded in God's very own strategy for his church i.e. equipping the saints for ministry and maturity to engage the world in mission with the gospel for God's glory and praise!
