Because of our relationship with Jesus we connect with others in such a way that they experience Him.
We walk in humility, gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit.
All these things will be natural fruit.
Keep showing yourself friendly.
We bring God breathed solutions to the pressings needs of the day.
Adding flavour we make a unique difference, shining light wherever we go.
That all may see our good works and give glory to God, we are a city on a hill.
Stand up, Stand out!
Be imitators of God, be like Him, how you dress, how you speak, how you treat others.
We represent Jesus in our different spheres of influence.
We know it’s bigger than us, our life is not our own, we’ve been bought with a price.
It’s not what I want, it’s no longer how I see things or even feel, but rather it’s Christ in me.
We are His ambassadors!
We take God at His Word. We are quick to obey.
We believe Him more than our circumstances. He is more real than this realm.
He is our go to!
Going where we have never been before…we are willing to step out of the boat when He calls, and believe Him, to do the exploits He has called us to do in His name.
Follow Jesus not Christians.
God is at work in us, we are working out our salvation, we’re on the way from glory to glory.
Not pondering things of the past, not being stuck in the mud.
Behold He is doing a new thing!
We love to serve and share our gifts and talents with others.
We choose to use our freedom to love others. We are faithful to steward what God has given us.
We value being authentic and real.
We are learning to be servants of all!
We are in the business of making disciples.
We go out on God given assignments, to expand the kingdom!
Stay the course, not forgetting the poor, the widowed and the orphaned.
Building family (whanau) happens here.
We’re devoted to the apostles teaching, fellowship, sharing bread and prayer.
We’re not casual about meeting together.
A cord of 3 strands is not easily broken.
We are all members made of one body. The eye sees the need of the hands and the head sees the importance of the feet. There is no division in the body. We need one another.
We are the body of Christ and individually we are members of it.
Iron sharpens iron!
We are not stuck in the mud.
We’ve got a roll on, our hand is to the plough…our hearts are set on pilgrimage.
We action obedience…it takes childlike faith.
From glory to glory!
You matter enough that we are going to have authentic and real discussions.
Let your thinking be mature.
Be filled with the knowledge of His will, in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, not being conformed to the way this world operates, but engaging the mind of Christ.
We speak the truth in love and don’t hide things under the carpet, because little foxes spoil the vine.
There is only one accuser of the brethren.
