Our Vision is to see the Community of Rooksdown and Surrounding Areas Impacted and Transformed by the Love of God
One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer – at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, ‘Look at us!’ So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
Then Peter said, ‘Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.’ Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognised him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
Acts 3 – Peter heals a lame beggar
In light of the above scripture and our vision, our goals are simple but effective:
‘In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!’ – to seek and create opportunities to introduce Jesus to people!
‘Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up’ – to recognise opportunities to show the love of God in practical ways
‘Then he went with them into the temple courts’ – to walk with people as they discover the joy of knowing, loving and serving the Lord!
‘When all the people saw him walking and praising God … they were filled with wonder and amazement …’ to encourage, inspire and motivate people to worship in Spirit and in Truth
