Our Vision Statement
To Love, Live, and Share Jesus:
This statement represents the heart of LFC. Our aim is to reach Linton and as far as we can with the gospel message of Jesus. Our vision is to see people respond to Jesus’ invitation to have personal relationship with Him.
When asked what the greatest commandment is, Jesus replied:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38).
It is easy to see this incredible statement from Jesus as an impossible task, and therefore give up. But as Christians we persevere in our love for Jesus by encouraging one another and doing what we can to develop our faith and love for God.
Jesus goes on to say that it is: “equally important to love our neighbour as ourselves”. Therefore, as a church we want to love and serve our community wherever we can.
Paul gives us instructions for Christian living in the book of Colossians. He states that:
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord you are serving.” (Colossians 3:23-24).
We try to honour God and seek His presence in everything we do, always aiming for excellence as we serve God in all aspects of our lives: workplace, personal, relationships, and church.
When Jesus commissioned the disciples, He said:
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:15-16).
As followers of Christ we believe that in following Jesus we have received the greatest gift of all time; personal relationship with a living God who loves us. We simply want all people to share in this wonderful gift that comes with knowing Jesus personally.
God has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit who enables us to live out this vision statement and create a loving, fun, life changing, growing, and relevant church family that appeals to all ages. We would love to see you there!
