Revisited - 2021
Disciples of Jesus Christ
God seeks his honour and glory above all else, achieving that through the proclamation of the death and resurrection of his Son to believers, that they might mature into the likeness of Christ, and to unbelievers, that they might come to faith and repentance.
Valuing the Right Handling of God's Word
We believe the Bible is God’s word and that it reveals to us His plan for salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. We believe it is one unified story that was inspired by God and written by human authors—the Old Testament is God’s word of preparation and promise regarding Jesus Christ and the New Testament is God’s word recording and explaining the person and work of Jesus Christ. The author’s original intent and meaning should be preserved, therefore the shape and emphasis of our sermons match the shape and emphasis of the biblical text.
Valuing Prayerful Dependence
Prayer is the privilege of every believer to speak to our heavenly Father. We believe that God calls His people to pray in response to His Word, expressing our trust in and dependence on God’s character and His promises.
Every Christian is encouraged to be continuously and actively involved in discipling others, whatever your age or stage of life.
Valuing our Unity in Christ
We believe that the saving grace of Jesus Christ has broken down all barriers among believers. Through the gospel, believers from all backgrounds are reconciled to God and with each other. We relate to each other, resolve conflicts, and make decisions in a way which reflects our oneness in Christ.
What is a ‘Vision’? It is what we hope we will become. A vision acts as both a guide (where do we want to go) and a measure (how are we going at the moment).
This is the vision that the leaders and members of SLE Church formulated a few years ago. SLE Church seeks to be a prayerful Christ-centred community that proclaims the gospel to unbelievers and grows disciples of Jesus Christ.
This week’s sermon will unpack this vision, reflect on how we are going and how we can do better.
