Why I love my church

Thought I’d do a little shout out for my church, St Paul’s Newport today. St Paul’s is one of those churches that is spelt J E S U S to be honest. I love it. And here are the reasons why…

  1. The church is a church that primarily loves Jesus
  2. The leadership team are faithful, committed and Christ centred.
  3. The Bible is preached and proclaimed every week
  4. They are unified in the Gospel
  5. They are able to be different because of unity in the Gospel
  6. They are mission minded
  7. They follow the mandate of Jesus in Luke 4
  8. They are open to change within the Church and the community
  9. They seek new ways of presenting the Gospel to the unchurched.
  10. They are a church of love and acceptance
  11. Every visitor gets a warm welcome.
  12. They help define what the church should be – a family, a body with Christ at the head.
  13. They are concerned about making sure that the body follow the Great Commission.

There are many other reasons why I love St Paul’s, but I feel that these are probably the top reasons. No church is perfect, and everyone at St Paul’s including me knows that. But I feel that this is a good place to be. And this is my prayer; that the church of Christ becomes what Jesus wants it to be rather than what we desire it to be for our individual and selfish needs.
