“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” (Luke 4:18-19)
We have seen many within the church family develop and grow in their faith journey, alongside many from outside the church, experiencing God's love (often through our missional projects) and then starting a personal faith journey with Jesus.
We have a rich history here and have recently birthed TransformUK, which will have a local focus through TransformShoreditch as well as national focus through other UK projects and an international focus with TransformCoffee.
Is to deepen our relationship with God and to continue to reach out to others with love and compassion.
We believe that the Church is key to transforming our local community – and that by working closely with our members, we can transform our society with the good news of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
We aim to do this through our personal walk with Christ and by following Jesus’ example.
It’s all about Jesus:
“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honouring each other.”
Romans 12:10 NLT
We are called to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. It is the First Commandment Jesus gave us.
We do this:
By encouraging all to allow the love of God into all areas of our heart, including the messed up places, so that we can help and minister more effectively the love of God to others.
What does this look like:
We believe that as Christians we should be walking in the power and grace of Jesus, bringing encouragement, healing, deliverance and all of the benefits of God, to the world around us, and to this end, we believe in equipping the church to do the Father’s work. We do this through Transform Shoreditch in partnership with Transform UK
We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the father, son and Holy Spirit .
We believe that the Bible is God’s word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error.
We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the son, his virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His is Ascension to the father, and His personal, physical return to rule the Earth in power and love.
We believe that all mankind is lost in sin and we need to turn from it and trust personally in the saviour, Jesus Christ. All need to be born a new by the Holy Spirit’s power into God’s family.
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, self control into our lives. He gives us spiritual gifts including speaking of tongues , prophesying, healing among others.
We believe in the resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and the eternal judgement for the lost.
