Dimension 1 - Story
We believe that we are part of a bigger story that crosses the generations of history. We believe that Jesus spans this entire story and that the Cross is the central point, the point of love, salvation and hope. We believe that the same God whose story is told throughout the Bible continues to tell that story today in us and through us. And we believe that we are called to be the latest in the long line of people who are exploring what it means to live out the Kingdom of God in our world today.
Dimension 2 - Connected
We believe that we live in a world that is disconnected and broken. We believe Jesus is our only hope of reconnection and so church should be a place where people can be connected and reconnected. Connected with God, with each other, with communities and with creation and where we can rediscover who we are and who we could be. As a church we seek to reconnect in every way we can so that the world can become reconnected, restored and renewed in every way it can. This is the Kingdom of God.
Dimension 3 - Relational
We believe God is a relational God - Father, Son and Spirit; a God who hears the cry of humanity and responds. We believe that God desires to be in relationship with us and that through this relationship He offers restoration and salvation from the death and darkness that consumes so much of our lives. We believe the way of Jesus cannot be lived in isolation and so we choose to share our lives deeply with each other, submitting to each other, serving each other, seeking the best for each other and loving each other.
Dimension 4 - Serving
We believe that Jesus is the image of the invisible God and that the church is called to reflect Him. As such we are called to love and serve the world and to be the hands and feet of God in Yeovil, the nation and the world. We believe that we can only do this through the empowering of the Holy Spirit and together with God’s people. We believe that we are called to love actively, to serve in the face of oppression, poverty, injustice and brokenness. We believe this is the heart of God as revealed through scripture and as disciples of Jesus we choose to love unconditionally.
Dimension 5 - Transformed
We believe that we are called to be people who are transformed by the Spirit of God and set free from the things that destroy us. We are called to be people who live in harmony with Jesus. We want to see transformation in our broken society, and so we seek to demonstrate distinctive values of love, constancy, forgiveness, restoration, peace, justice and truth. As we explore the teachings of Jesus, we invite people to journey with us and to be transformed with us.
Dimension 6 - Expressive
We believe God is an expressive God and that He chooses to express himself through us. We believe that we are called to find creative ways to live out and communicate the message of Jesus today as we seek to demonstrate God through our lives and our creativity. We believe that all of God’s creation is an expression of who He is and in the same way everything we do, say, create and live out should express who God is. This is our worship.
