“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now…”
– Phil 1:4-5
The Message of Jesus is glorious! He has changed everything by His intervention, His rescue. He has revolutionised the way that we relate to Him, reset our relationships with each other and changed the way that we want to reach out to those who have not yet received Him.
Here’s a sketch of what it looks like to be a part of our local church – Oakhall Church – here in Caterham. We have been using the word “partner” to describe it…
In a local church, partnership means we grow our love for Jesus, further the Good News about Him and express our love for each another.
“Partnership” is a deliberate commitment to partner Oakhall Church in Gospel work through sacrificially using our God-entrusted gifts, time and money:
to reach out with the Good News of Jesus;
to build up and care for believers in Him through partnership with us;
to send on disciples who will serve Jesus elsewhere.
