    worship prayer and fellowship We value the corporate side of apostolic prophetic ministry that is so much part of our heritage Worship prayer teaching and fellowship all play a major part of who we are it s just that we don t do these things prescriptively in a particular building at a particular time of the week Some forms of church experiments might pendulum swing away from religion and also let go of meeting together to worship pray etc this is throwing out the baby with the bathwater As an apostolic people we cling to these things and seek that they will increase in our midst It is a logistical challenge as well as a test of our commitment to each other and to the vision to see these aspects fully operating despite not meeting regularly on a Sunday morning We seek to be church walking in freedom and maturity that means that we take responsibility for our own walks and growth The leadership take their pastoral responsibilities seriously but expect members to be praying and feeding themselves from the word We want to walk in proper order and respect spiritual authority knowing that just as we are to exercise the authority that is ours in Christ so we freely submit to leadership and other Godly authority out of the freedom we have received We recognise that true freedom ultimately means being free to obey the Holy Spirit just as Christ did New Christians will be thoroughly discipled and taught quickly to know their position in Christ We seek first the kingdom knowing that Jesus will build his church That means we are not overly concerned with building our numbers but rejoice in every step forward in the lives of those we come into contact with regardless of whether they

    to be Christian witnesses in the world during the week has been familiar in recent years Yet it remains an elusive target to hit The body of Christ and therefore the glory of God has remained pretty much bound within church buildings and organisational structures c There is increasing disquiet with the church scene with many disillusioned about time spent attending meetings services and programmes Our towns and cities have many people de churched d The prevailing trend against dualistic thinking pitting spirit against matter a non biblical notion is causing a massive rethink in certain quarters about the false divisions that have emerged in our thinking regarding how the church relates to the world We can see now that a wrong distinction between holy and secular resulted in a mindset that has wrongly separated certain aspects of church from world For instance a church building was seen as holy but the world outside the building as secular ministers priests as holy in ministry others in the world or in secular employment Sunday mornings holy but the rest of the week for secular things Breakthroughs over the centuries such as Luther s priesthood of believers has broken this down to some degree yet in practice wrong dualistic distinctions remain in the body Even in cutting edge charismatic churches it is commonly thought whatever is said that it is somehow a second rate call to be in secular employment When Paul said in Eph 4 that Christ ascended in order that his body fill the universe he surely meant for the church i e the congregation to be church out in the world wherever they were put revealing Christ The purpose of the fivefold ministry mentioned in the next verses is apparently to equip the body for such a purpose 3 Our response Our vision is not to do church but to fill the universe with the body of Christ reflecting his glory to all creation a In the Old Testament the glory was shut in the holy of the holies As Jesus died on the cross the curtain in front of the holy of the holies was torn We often think in terms of this enabling our journey into the presence of God true enough but it also let the glory out To trap it once again this time in church structures is to miss the point of what God intended to do through his church His glory is to be known throughout creation not just in meetings and church programmes Church is all week long wherever people are Each person seeks to build relationships with those who are not saved led in whatever way the Holy Spirit directs him her The body will be intrinsically outward looking b There has been wonderful teaching in certain parts of the church over the past decades the last wineskin It is time for the congregation to walk in the good of knowing who they are in Christ knowing they carry the fullness
