Our purpose at Redeemer Colchester is;
"To lead people into discovering fuLlness of life
by helping THEM FIND AND FOLLOW JESUS"
Everything we do is aligned to our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.
Our statement of purpose is shaped by three key scriptures of Jesus' teaching;
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
John 10:10 NIV
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. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:36-40 NIV
He said to them, “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. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Mark 16:15-17, 20 NIV
