Method and Mission 
 
We believe in the five fold ministry as stated in Ephesians 4:11-13 (NIV)
"It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
 
This means the effective and equal ministry of men and women operating freely in the body of Christ.
One Body, One Spirit, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of All.
To bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to a people and world desperate for answers.
"But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve ........
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."  
Joshua 24:15 (NIV)

Our Mission

Holy Communion

  • To spread and preach the Gospel of Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, while making the Bible the only text as a sufficient rule for faith and practice;
 
  • To unite all people with the Love and Spirit of Almighty God through His Son, Jesus Christ;
 
  • To evangelize the gospel of grace to the inner cities and elsewhere as guided by the Holy Spirit;
 
  • To help the poor and needy people where found or met, regardless of race, religion or creed;

  • To establish the Evangelical Christian Church in England for fellowship, training and worship;

  • To ordain and licence men and women to the Gospel ministry, and to send missionaries according to the standards set by the New Testament;
 
  • To guide and train Christian clergy in church-related ministries for part-time or full-time service, and also for lay ministry leadership.

  • To provide listening services to troubled Christians and non-Christians and to work with them;

  • To conduct public or private general meetings and conferences that are of a Christian and evangelistic nature;

  • To continue to support and create unity in the one universal apostolic church with love for each other and respect for diversity and difference of opinion.
 
We celebrate the Lord's Table at least once a week and regularly during our homegroups.  Anyone is welcome to take communion who has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord in their life and Son of God,Saviour and Redeemer of the World.  We are all a Holy Priesthood under God and therefore, we share the Lord's Table when two or more are gathered together in His name. 
 
Some agree that there is no difference between clergy and laity so any believer may officiate at communion and share the bread and wine amongst the believers.
 
However, we respect diversity and other of our groups or churches may wish just to have an ordained or licensed minister officiate over the bread and wine for simplicity. Either is acceptable within the Evangelical Christian Church in England.
