Vision & Practice
We exist as a church to see the Good News of Jesus Christ have an impact in lives of our neighbours.
The following three “pillars” serve as the foundation for how we live out this mission as followers of Jesus Christ…
Seek the Lost
Grow Together in Christ
Build Our Community
Seeking the Lost: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10
We aim to seek the lost in Chelsea Green through personal engagement with our neighbours, community events, and evangelistic efforts. Our aim is to reach those people in Chelsea Green who do not yet know the forgiveness, love, grace, and mercy of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We want to be visible and active participants in the everyday life of Chelsea Green, serving our neighbours where they live, work, and play.
Grow Together in Christ: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
As followers of Christ, we are called to grow in our love, faith, and knowledge of Jesus. This is a lifelong process and it isn’t done in isolation. It is accomplished through the everyday, life-on-life reality of a group of Jesus followers living and practicing the “One Another” verses found throughout the New Testament. We aim to provide an environment at CGCC where people can come to experience and know Jesus through gospel-centred preaching, fellowship, and community.
Build our Community: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
We love Chelsea Green. As Christians, we look out into the world, see how it once was in the beginning, and how it will be when Christ returns. Our aim is to build a community of believers that reflects the future and eternal kingdom of God in the here and now. We advocate for the voiceless, invest in fellow image-bearers of God, and walk alongside those who are broken, because that’s what Jesus did.
