Rooted in our heritage as a church of God’s people, we are:

Christ-centred – Teaching from a Christ-centred, biblical foundation

Intergenerational and Family- focused

Serving – Here to make a difference, engaging with our community practically, socially and spiritually

Missional – God has placed each of us where we can minister to others both “here” and “there.”

Journeying – A vibrant and dynamic church on God’s journey

You may have a clear idea of what the church shouldn’t be, but how would you describe a church that looks biblical? The Bible paints a varied picture of what it means to be the church, but there are a couple of guiding principles in considering what it means to be the church.

They are found in two primary passages:

Read Acts 2:42-47. This passage describes what happens when conversion takes place and people are filled and empowered with the Holy Spirit. We relate differently, have different priorities and there is a dynamic in the way we relate to God and each other.

Read Ephesians 4:1-16. This passage describes a church that is under the leadership of the Lord Jesus Christ. The people respect one another – are gifted and called to serve in the church and society – and are becoming more Christ-like as they achieve this.

 The Church is God’s people in community, reflecting God’s presence and priorities.

This describes the church that we desire to be at Darfield Baptist
