Focus Bible Church Purpose Statement
Focus Bible Church lives to worship God through His Son Jesus Christ in the strength of the Holy Spirit. We trust in the absolute authority and sufficiency of God’s Word, the Bible, for every area of belief and practice. We exist to speak well of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. We also equip each other for thanksgiving, for service, and for unashamed living as lovers of Jesus Christ.
As a church, Focus Bible Church seeks to express God’s character by living out the grace and love of Jesus Christ (Jud. 1:20-23). We worship God for His pleasure and His glory (Rom. 12:1; 2Co. 5:9; Php. 3:3). We proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, making disciples who follow Him, baptising and teaching them to obey all He has commanded (Mt. 28:19-20). We endeavour to nurture and equip God’s people for doing works of service (Eph. 4:11-12; Col. 1:28). We recognise our part in Christ’s worldwide church. To this end, we engage in missions, principally within New Zealand and also overseas (Acts 1:8).
