What We Believe
For a thorough look at our belief statement, please refer to the AoG statement of faith, by clicking here
. As an AoG affiliate, we are in agreement with this statement. Aside from this, WCC is striving towards the following goals:
- To gear church towards Jesus Christ Himself. That is, rather than try to see what people want to get out of church, and gear church toward them, we want to make sure that church is geared toward Him. Jesus said that "no-one comes to me unless the Father draws him" (John 6:44). We believe therefore that if we gear our church toward Jesus, then He will draw men to Himself.
- Linked with this is a desire for us as a body and individually, to pursue personal holiness as a way of life, in order that Jesus manifests Himself through us in our day-to-day living. This is our best way of personal evangelism.
- As we seek Him in prayer and pursue Him, we want to see revival, starting in the church (both our church body, and elsewhere)
- As the church is revived, so we look prayerfully and practically, to seeing revival breaking out in our community, and spreading, God willing, throughout the Lake District, and as far beyond as God moves. WCC is committed to praying for, and acting out what we are instructed to do, in order to see the salvation of many in this area, through a mighty move of God. We believe this vision is of God, and that He has commissioned His people to be about this task.
