BIG PEOPLE NOT BIG CHURCH
We believe in developing and discipling big people rather than focusing on big Church. Our aim is to raise men and women who are committed to the body of Christ and extending the kingdom into North London, whilst holding the nations of the world in their hearts.
TO RESOURCE THE WIDER BODY OF CHRIST WITH GIFTS, TALENTS AND MINISTRIES
Many ministries that serve the body of Christ beyond the walls of Revelation Church are beginning to emerge. This is a tremendous privilege and blessing and an aspect we desire to keep central to who we are and what we do.
TO BE A CHURCH THAT PLANTS CHURCHES ACROSS NORTH LONDON, POSTCODE BY POSTCODE
We are looking to plant Churches across North London and we feel this is to be done by individuals/families/groups seeking to move to a new postcode to preach the gospel into the lives of neighbours and communities.
TO BE A CHURCH THAT CONTINUES TO SEND PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD TO PLANT CHURCHES
We seek to do this by asking the questions 'where is God moving people to? What is he birthing in people's hearts? Where we feel a sense of God acting we look to maintain relationships with people to support and equip them.
WE BELIEVE IN...
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons — the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
The dignity of all people made male and female in God's image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ — born of the Virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers — given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
